Riviera Pest and Falconry covers all aspects of pest control in both domestic and commercial properties in Devon.
Here at Riviera Pest and Falconry Services we have specially trained Birds of Prey to aid us in removing troublesome Gulls, Corvids and Pigeons. The beauty of this method is that it is non-lethal and the presence of the Hawk is enough to scatter offending birds. We have had great success at moving on pest birds at retail parks and football grounds specifically. Our handler flies the hawks or falcons through the affected area a number of times over a prolonged period, teaching the local bird population that the area is unsafe for them and encouraging them to find somewhere else to nest and feed. The droppings of nuisance birds, like gulls and pigeons, can spread diseases e.g. Ornithosis, E.Coli and Salmonella. Their droppings are extremely hard to clean and cause damage to buildings, vehicles, entrances and pavements, which can become slippery and hazardous. Gulls in particular are extremely noisy, causing disruption to workforce and neighbours, they can also become aggressive during the breeding season and known to attack people and pets.
Falconry is not a direct method alone in removing the issue of problematic birds. In most scenarios proofing/netting work may be required to provide a permanent solution to the fouling and noise.
