Why bird baiting?
The reasons you need bird baiting services
Bird pests can cause considerable damage to our homes and commercial properties. The droppings, feathers and nesting materials carry up to 60 diseases. Some of these diseases are zoonotic. Serious health issues can result from zoonotic diseases such as Salmonellosis, Newcastle disease, psittacosis and Avian Influenza.
Not only do they spread disease, they also attract a host of parasites, such as: ticks, beetles, fleas, mites, flies and mosquitos. According to WHO research, 17% of all infectious diseases are vector-borne.
Vectors carry a disease from one host to another. An example of a vector, as per the CDC is a mosquito which can pass infectious pathogens and parasites to animals and humans. Mosquitos are vectors of West Nile Fever. Ticks are vectors of Lyme disease. Rat fleas are vectors of the Bubonic Plague, according to the CDC. All of these problems can stem from pest birds.
Bird pests can cause devastation to crops and drive native birds from nesting places and food sources. The Sparrow, Common Starling, Blackbird, and Common Mynas are all considered to be bird pests for this reason. Given the severity of the problems caused by bird pests, when deterrents don’t work, we use bird baiting.
Why Choose Us?
Our Service Vs. The Rest
Benefit to you
If deterrents aren't working
our bird bait service can help
Some are infestations are just too challenging to treat with simple bird deterrent solutions.
In some cases, bird pests may have been left undeterred for too long. In other instances, the infestation can be sudden and severe. The landscape or environmental factors may prevent deterrents from being fixed into place. There are a variety of reasons why bird pests continue to be a problem. So if deterrents are not a possibility, it's time to use bird bait.
Only approved users such as licensed pest management technicians should use bird bait in pest control. Hence we never recommend a DIY job for bird bait pest control.
Bird bait is often the last resort in pest control and is strictly regulated. Its use is prohibited for any birds not on the Australian pest list. Hence great care must be taken when handling and placing it to ensure that it is both safe and effective.
Love Our Work
"We used Service Now Trades on one of our latest projects at North Curl Curl Public School and we couldnt be happier. We had a few issues with the project which meant we needed Adam and the guys tobe flexible with date and time changes. There was no issues at all in that regards and the quality of work was what we need in a company like ADCO. Will use him again for other bird work on other projects".
"Adam and the boys were on time and efficient. They did extra work with no charge as our client was a little finicky with what they wanted exactly. We have contracted them again for another small job coming up in the RAAF to install bird netting. Great work from a great company".
"Adam and his offsider were a treat! They worked really hard to ensure the birds were gone from the roof by cleaning all the gutters and the mess they created. They were there for hours to make sure the job was done right. Adam was a pleasure to talk to and i have already recommended his company to all of our friends and family which some have already booked in and have the same experience. Cant talk highly enough of these guys for their great service".

Our 3 Step
Bird Proofing Action Plan
If you already have an infestation, don't worry!
We can get it sorted with minimum disruption to your home or business using our three point plan.
Bird proofing Step 1
Investigate & Report
Firstly, our fully trained, certified, and licensed expert will carry out a full assessment of your home or workspace. It will note such things as how the birds are accessing your home or commercial premises. They will also investigate any health and safety issues.
Damage from pecking and nesting can affect structures, solar panels and wiring. Much of the damage will not be visible from below. We are certified and licensed to work at heights using boom lift and cherry pickers. We examine structural or environmental issues which are causing feral birds to congregate.
Bird proofing Step 2
After a thorough investigation, our licensed and certified expert will make recommendations for eradication and prevention. There are various methods, and there may be several which would do the job. We will advise you on which one is best suited to your bird pest problem. Whichever method is best for eradication, it is always a good idea to have bird proofing carried out. Effective pest control is not just eradication but prevention of further infestation.
When bird proofing your premises, we will secure each access point to ensure they can't get back in. Next comes, the clean-up. Bird debris can leave all sorts of diseases and parasites, which are dangerous to your health. That's why we use high pressure cleaning equipment to eradicate any unwanted guests and nesting materials.
Bird proofing Step 3
Prevent Future Bird Problems
Following this, we issue a report highlighting cause, treatment and prevention. The report will explain what we found to be the cause of your avian pest problem.
It will go on to list what action we took to get rid of the birds and resultant debris. Finally, we will make recommendations for a pest free future for you.
At home or in your business
a bird problem can lead to other pests
With a bird pest infestation, there often comes a secondary infestation of the pests living on or with the birds. Fleas, mites and ticks, attracted by the birds, will often move from the primary site, into the property.
Once in the property, they are capable of infesting many different places. They can infest pets and in some cases, even humans.
This terrible case of secondary infestation that happened as close as Wollongong should be enough to make you consider bird baiting if you have a bird pest problem.
Aerosolised pathogen transmission can occur when nests are disturbed. The dust inhaled will contain minute particles of bird and parasite debris and bacteria. Going straight into the lungs of the victim, no amount of sanitisation will help. The victim may not even know they are infected until severe symptoms occur.
Air conditioning systems can further spread airborne pathogens. Hence, people in other parts of the building far away from the original pest site can still be infected.
The damage birds can do:
a commercial case study
Your business may well have bird pest problems, but it wouldn't be the first business to have its bottom line impacted by pest birds.
Bird pests cause considerable damage to crops. Bird pest infestations can decimate fruit and grain crops. It can be challenging to deter bird pests from vast open agricultural land. Fruit and grain which have pecking damage are no longer safe to eat. Birds carry many dangerous diseases, some of which are zoonotic. Bird parasites too can transmit disease. Therefore, the loss in produce to growers is substantial. Bird pests in Australia are responsible for up to $300 million of horticultural damage annually.
The propensity for disease transmission among livestock by bird pests is also a problem. When a disease has entered a herd, it can be expensive and difficult to eradicate. Some bird pests, such as the Common Starling can form huge flocks. When these descend on farmland they can cause damage in several ways:
- Disease transmission to the herd
- Disease transmission to people working or living on the premises
- Threat to biodiversity as aggressive bird pests drive away native birds from nesting places and food sources
- Weed spread via droppings or saliva. In crop farming, weed spread can be particularly difficult to manage.
- Damage to property via pecking and acidic droppings
- Damage to machinery if bird debris falls into mechanisms
- Food and water contamination
We rely on our producers to provide healthful food for us to eat: Fresh fruit, good grain, cereals, dairy products and meat. We need good quality food to nourish ourselves and our families. However, when bird pests are allowed to congregate and decimate crops, it challenges our very heath and livelihoods.
This is just an example of how dangerous pest birds can be. To get them gone from your commercial space for good, trust Service Now's experienced Sydney bird control team.
