Bird Netting and Mesh
Bird netting is one of the most common methods of bird proofing, often used to encase plant or machine-heavy areas, or to cover loading bay canopies.Bird netting and meshing methods are versatile and can be used in most applications. Where necessary, nets can be raised over a building, to allow personnel access underneath.Black Ops Pest Control use bird mesh to prevent access beneath solar panels or air-conditioning units.
Solar Panels- Bird Infestations
The last decade has seen an increase in the installation of solar panels. As panels sit just a few inches above a roof, a gap is created, providing an appealing shelter for birds, as it is warm and offers protection from predators and humans.Black Ops proof these areas using mesh, netting and spikes, in homes and commercial properties, in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, the south east and north, east and central London.
