Falconry response offers a holistic, unique and non-lethal alternative method to remove pest birds from your site.
Eliminate have years of experience in knowing the intricate balance between avian predators and their prey. We can call upon this to great effect in many locations and environments where birds are roosting, nesting or feeding.
Using bird of prey pest control is a highly efficient, non-lethal method to remove and deter pests from your property. Introducing a bird deterrent hawk or falcon to your site will invoke a fear response from the pest species being targeted (pigeons, seagulls etc), causing them to believe that a predator bird has arrived as a threat to their colony.
In reality, our highly trained team of birds and staff members use hawk or falconry pest control to merely make the pest species think our predator birds are a threat. The birds of prey used will not harm the pest birds in any way, but can efficiently elicit a fear response that will discourage them from nesting on or near your property. For more information about our methods, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
Our dedicated team of hawking Technicians are handpicked from our existing team of pest Technicians, so are already fully trained pest controllers. The training involved for one of our team members to become a falconer is in depth and requires extreme dedication from the individual as this is probably the most difficult part of pest control to master.
A great deal of training goes into our falconry response birds, to make sure their behaviour is conditioned to do exactly what is needed on each individual site. We have a mews (places birds of prey are kept) with at anytime around 20 individual birds that have been trained for the specific tasks at hand.
These range from the smallest merlins and kestrels that would be the natural predators for starlings right up to huge Gyr falcon hybrids who are a predator of Northern sea bird colonies.
