Whelan Pest Prevention launches new Bird of Prey division

Whelan Pest Prevention has launched their new Bird of Prey division dealing exclusively with nuisance bird management. Using the latest techniques and specific breeds of Birds of Prey, Whelan Pest Prevention specialise in the control of pest species of native birds in any location.

With a team of Birds of Prey bred and trained specifically for the use of pest bird management and a team of fully trained falconers, we can provide a highly cost effective gull and pigeon control in comparison to our competitors.

Sean Whelan, MD of Whelan Pest Prevention, commented:
“We deal with all sorts of applications for the Falcons ranging from schools to football grounds Both pigeons and gulls pose serious health risks, due to diseases (micro organisms) carried in their droppings – including salmonella, as well as the unsightly mess their droppings cause.Gulls can also become aggressive whilst breeding and rearing young, and they will frequently dive down towards people in order to protect their young. The aim of using Birds of Prey is to dissuade the pest species from returning to the area, not to hunt them.”

Whelan Pest Prevention uses two types of Bird of Prey:

The Harris Hawk is a mid sized friendly Hawk and has proved to be the most effective deterrent for the prevention of pigeons. They are quick to fly to buildings and pigeon roosting areas and are recognised as a predator by the pigeons, due to their silhouette of rounded wings and a long tail.

We also use a range of Falcons, both large and small, from the Peregrine Falcon to the Saker Falcon, as a Gull deterrent and prevention. As soon as they spot the Falcon, with his distinctive shape when airborne, the gulls take to air and rise to greater heights than the Falcon, in order to evade their natural predator. Repeated flights in the area of the colony soon persuades the gulls to seek a more restful location, and they begin to leave the area. Whelan Pest Prevention operate nationally throughout a team of franchisees

“We are delighted to offer this service to our existing and new clients are happy to discuss this as alternative to conventional methods “
