We use our own specially trained hawks and falcons which can fly in any location from housing estates, shopping centres, stadiums, prisons, car parks and our falcons are used on waste transfer sites.


By using our specially trained hawks and falcons we utilise an effective, natural way of controlling and deterring pigeons, gulls, rooks and crows.


We also use our hawks on golf courses to remove rabbits where the use of firearms is not an option.


Common pests are feral pigeons, seagulls and crows. Feral pigeons produce a large amount of excrement waste which when left to get out of hand can make public walkways slippery and dangerous for people to walk on.


Seagulls are a similar hazard where they roost on buildings close to refuse sites causing excrement and there noise can also be a nuisance. Crows and rooks cause crop damage and noise pollution.

Use of birds of prey

UV Bird Netting

This is by far the most popular method of preventing all species of bird.


Netting can be installed using either a stainless steel or galvanised wire frame of which corner fixings are placed at every turn and ten meter intervals to take the strain of the net.


Depending on the pest species intermediate fixings are placed approximately every 1 meter apart (starlings require every 0.5m and sparrows every 0.33m).

DeadCert Pest Control specialise in every aspect of the avian pest control.

Bird Netting for the prevention of pigeons, seagulls, starlings and sparrows.

Bird Wire

Stainless steel posts are installed over the ledge at approximately 1.5 meter spaces with a small 1mm wire slightly tensioned between to prevent birds from landing. Springs are attached to wire to cushion the blow of the bird landing as well as disrupt what would normally by a suitable wire.

Effective preventative measure against pigeons seagulls and starlings.

Bird Gel

Bird Gel provides as an effective deterrent whether in conjunction with an alternative system (spikes) or as a standalone where it is impractical to install other methods.


There are strict regulations governing the use of bird gel in order that birds do not get harmed.

Bird Coils

Similar to bird wire, this offers a cost effective and discrete method to prevent pigeons from perching on ledges.


Installation is extremely easy, with only intermediate fixings required sparingly, resulting in a solution easily installed by residential customers.

This cost-effective system is only recommended for light and medium pressure areas.

Bird Scarers

These function well as a short-term solution when you need a large area to be bird free, such as when you want seeds to germinate.


Systems are custom designed to your specification and site plans are drawn before installation to plan for the correct and most successful installation. The system is manufactured exclusively in Uckfield, East Sussex by Scarecrow Acoustics.

Bird scarers are an effective prevention strategy against pigeons, starlings and seagulls.

Wire netting

Wire Netting (commonly known as chicken wire) can be installed to various areas to prevent pigeons and other feral birds from access. The wire is installed using either a staple gun (if wooden cladding similar to attached photo) or screws and washers (on metal or concrete frame work).


We are able to supply mesh in both galvanised or stainless steel. Sizes vary from 19mm to 75mm.

Ideal solution for the prevention of seagulls, pigeons, starlings and sparrows.
