Bird protection netting or pigeon nets simply reverse the function of aviary nets. Whereas aviary/poultry nets serve to protect your feathered livestock from birds of prey and ground predators in poultry farming, bird guard nets protect building facades and orchards from hungry birds. Pigeons, in particular, can thereby quickly become a pest. A pigeon guard net easily keeps these pesky birds at bay.
Various models of bird guard nets are available at Safetynet365. Depending on which bird species you want to protect your facades, orchards or vegetable beds from, you can choose from three different mesh sizes: 20, 30 and 50 millimeter mesh sizes are available. This allows you to optimise your bird deterrent net for your individual use.
The Right Mesh Size does The Trick
The issue of pigeon control is becoming increasingly relevant. Particularly in cities, pigeons are becoming annoying pests. These “winged rats” attract more attention with their droppings than with melodious song. A bird protection net with a mesh size of 50 millimeters effectively keeps them at bay. These pigeon guard nets are mounted on facades to prevent these large birds from making themselves too comfortable there. Unlike many other types of pigeon deterrent, pigeon guard nets are completely safe for the birds.
Smaller birds can be “combated” using smaller mesh sizes. For birds of about the size of starlings you’ll need a mesh size of 30 millimeters, and for sparrows, 20 millimeters. These bird species are attracted to fruit and berries, due to which the nets are used in allotment gardens and orchards to defend the precious fruit. Whether you’re growing cherries, apples, pears, grapes, currants or strawberries – when installed correctly on trees and bushes, these light and thus easy-to-handle bird guard nets offer reliable protection. If you live in an apartment, you can also mount the bird guard net on the balcony to protect your pot plants.
Stable Bird Protection Netting Which Defy The Elements
This is due to the material properties of the bird protection nets which are of a quality that you won’t find in a DIY store. The bird protection netting is made of high tenacity, knotless polypropylene with a square, regular mesh structure. They are characterised by their weather-resistance and UV-stability, which enable them to withstand many years of wind and weather in outdoor use. Here at Safetynet365 you don’t buy nets in ready-made sizes, but instead design your bird deterrent net square meter by square meter, in accordance with your individual requirements.
Pigeon Guard Nets And Other Methods of Keeping Pigeons at Bay
Besides the pigeon guard net, there are a whole series of other methods to defend buildings from pigeons: the most common anti-pigeon measures are pigeon-deterrent spikes. These prevent pigeons from flying into certain areas and building nests or depositing droppings there. They are usually installed on large buildings. A spiral of similar design keeps pigeons at bay, while at the same time protecting people from getting injured on the deterrent device and are therefore recommended for private use on window ledges. Conversely, an electric bird deterrent ensures that pigeons are permanently driven away from certain places with the aid of low-voltage electric shocks.
A pigeon protection net (or bird protection net) is the gentlest way of keeping pigeons away, as it protects certain areas from pigeons in an aesthetically attractive way. Due to the fineness of the material, it is almost invisible and therefore has hardly any visual effect on its surroundings.
