Large buildings with many landing areas, such as those on college campuses, can often encounter problems with birds. A flock might choose a rooftop or sheltered landing as a safe place to roost, or even to build a nest. This can lead to accumulated damage and stains on the building exterior. It is important to address the bird nuisance problem before the damage snowballs out of control.
Installing a bird deterrent will help keep flocks away from your building. There are a variety of deterrents to choose from, but not all are appropriate for every rooftop or landing. At Hudson Valley Wildlife Solutions, we have experience with a wide range of bird deterrent options. We can help you choose and install the best one to fit your needs.
Our alma mater, SUNY Cobleskill, hired us to clean up and prevent further bird damage to campus buildings. At the modern Van Wagenen Library, several species of bird had made a habit of perching on landings around the building. They especially liked a few covered areas that shielded them from the elements. These landings were right outside library windows, and the birds were becoming a nuisance to students and staff inside. We had to find a low-profile bird deterrent that would keep birds away without blocking the view through the windows.
