As we enter 2019 some things have changed – we are currently updating the website of Bristol-based Good Riddance Pest Control to make it part of the Cleankill family – and some things stay the same – the need to protect your property from birds.
Cleankill Pest Control now has a bird on the payroll to help meet the demand from clients wanting natural methods of pest control.
Since six-year-old Luna the Harris Hawk joined the firm a few months ago her handler and Pest Control Technician Alan Day has been out and about getting her used to traffic noise and other unfamiliar sounds.
While Luna has been undergoing her own training, Alan has been studying for a professional Falconry qualification through LANTRA.
A customer has praised a Cleankill technician for the way he handled a sensitive situation involving two pigeon chicks.
Cleankill was contacted by the Health & Safety Manager of a London factory about the pigeon chicks which were 10 to15 days old, They had been discovered in a box in racking outside the premises.
The customer was delighted when the technician managed to safely and quickly remove the chicks and find them a home after calls to a number of organisations.
With Spring seemly getting earlier and earlier, now is the time to make sure your property is protected from nesting pigeons and other flying pests.
As the days get warmer, birds will start to look for places to settle – outside ledges and exposed pipework. Their droppings will then collect on the floor below, causing an unsightly and dangerously slippery mess.
A Catholic church in Sussex had spent many years trying to prevent pigeons messing on their statue depicting modern-day Christ. The ‘Maintenance Committee’, with the help of their priest, finally found a company that could help.
Alan Duncan who, with a colleague, helps with maintenance issues at St Philips Church in Uckfield, was at the end of his tether after spending considerable funds and much research on different possible solutions to keep the statue called ‘Jesus in Jeans’ clean.
