    Common Bird Questions

    1. What are the main problems pest birds cause?

      While Australia boasts many beautiful birds, introduced species have settled in urban areas and can cause harm such as structural damage to buildings and storefronts, spreading disease, mites and bacteria, triggering alarms and damaging the reputation of businesses.

    2. How do bird control inspections work?

      Our highly trained technicians will inspect common bird hot spots on or near your property, investigating activity and locating any nests. Once a thorough inspection has been conducted, we will prepare a bespoke bird solution for you which incorporates our various bird-proofing tactics. We will secure the area and prevent birds from settling down or building nests.

    3. Why choose professional bird control over DIY methods?

      Our bird proofing services integrate efficient methods customised specifically for your problem, while saving you money and time. DIY bird control consists of a lot of physical labour and costly materials. They can also cause further damage to buildings, whereas ours are designed to protect the structural integrity of your building. Particularly important for commercial or heritage buildings.

    4. How do acoustic and audible bird control solutions work?

      Acoustic devices can be very effective in controlling pest birds. They deliver a high frequency tone which is inaudible to humans but causes birds to evacuate from the area. It’s a great solution for large open spaces or where other control methods can’t be used.

    5. What’s the most economical way of preventing access for birds?

      Netting is the most permanent and cost-effective solution. Our experts will install a stainless-steel wire with a high-quality netting around the problem area. Made with the latest technology and crafted from polyethylene, our netting is highly durable and UV resistant to withstand the hot Australian sun. It also comes in different colours and sizes to suit your needs and the species of problem birds.

    Common Bird Species

    Common Pigeon Pest Control



    The common ‘rock dove’ pigeon has bluish-grey plumage, with an iridescent purple or green sheen on the neck and breast, and two black bars across the wings


    Pigeons don’t migrate and love nesting; especially on artificial ‘cliff faces’ created by apartment buildings, ledges or solar panels. They can seriously damage buildings with their droppings and also identify their ‘home base’ from far away using their sense of smell and hearing. So, once they have made your home theirs, it’s hard to get rid of them!


    Large feral pigeon populations thrive in urban areas. Largely monogamous, they usually have 2 babies per brood, reproducing all year round but more aggressively in the summer and spring. They feed voraciously on seeds and scraps; in city streets and parks, pigeons are seen pecking at the ground in a never-ending search for food.

    Common Seagull Pest Control

    Sea Gulls


    ‘Silver Gulls’ are commonly called Sea Gulls. They have a white head, tail and belly, light grey back and black-tipped wings. In adults, the bill, legs and eye-ring are orange red.


    Sea Gulls are famously successful scavengers, pestering humans for handouts of scraps, raiding bins or unattended food containers or searching for rubbish. Other foods they enjoy include worms, fish, insects and crustaceans. They’ll take what they can get! These birds can become a nuisance for coastal properties and businesses.


    Sea Gulls can drink both fresh and salt water, are found at virtually any coastal or watery habitat but rarely seen far from land. They nest in large colonies on offshore islands before returning to the mainland. Intelligent creatures, they mate for life and share parenting duties, learning sophisticated communication techniques to enhance scavenging.

    Common India Myna Pest Control

    Common Myna


    The Indian Myna, or Common Myna, is brown with a black head. It has a yellow bill, legs and bare eye skin. In-flight it shows large white wing patches.


    Mynas have adapted to urban environments and can cause problems for humans. Favoured nesting locations are in the walls and ceilings of buildings, as well as tree hollows. Nests are messy and can consist of a variety of materials – leaves, grasses, feathers and bits of human rubbish are common and be an unsightly addition to properties!


    Common mynas are known as bullies of other birds. Introduced in 1883, they have successfully pushed native birds from their natural habitats. Very territorial, they can fight ruthlessly with other birds. Accomplished scavengers, they feed on almost anything – insects, fruits, vegetables, pets’ food, scraps – and even fledgling sparrows.

    Common Sparrow Pest Control

    House Sparrow


    House sparrows are large finches. The male has a grey crown, black face and throat, with dark black and brown upperparts. The female is paler and has a pale buff eye stripe.


    Sparrows have spread successfully because they feed on a wide range of foodstuffs. They eat insects, spiders, berries, seeds, flower buds and scraps of food. They can become pests through nesting, plus also entering canteens and buildings to feed, with sparrows even learning sneaky tricks to open automatic doors!


    Introduced from Britain in the 1800s, the sparrow has established itself in urban areas throughout eastern Australia, as well as wooded country. Males and females form permanent pair bonds, with the female incubating the eggs. The nest is a large, messy ball of grass, wool, feathers and plant materials. Usually located in roof voids or crevices in walls. They breed aggressively in Spring.

    Common Starling Pest Control

    Common Starling


    The Common Starling has a wide variation in plumage, with the male glossier. Birds are black with large white spots in autumn, which disappear in breeding season.


    Breeding season in Spring sees the large winter flocks of Starlings scatter into pairs or small groups. Their nests are an untidy display of grass, leaves, twigs and rubbish. They also love nesting in roof voids and walls of human houses and can be aggressive and territorial when breeding.


    Starlings are often sighted searching for seeds and insects on lawns and paddocks. Other food includes spiders, worms, human scraps and fruit crops. They love looking for anything on the ground and are often found in vast flocks, especially in the winter months.
