Pigeons, seagulls and other birds can become major pests, defacing buildings and creating a hazardous environment with droppings and nesting materials. We have teams spread across the South of England that we can quickly deploy to deal with infestations.

Cleaning After Infestation
When a pigeon or bird infestation has been cleared there’s often debris, droppings and nesting materials left behind which are a potential health hazard. We provide a safe and effective cleaning service followed by treatment with bactericide to control disease carrying bacteria along with insecticidal treatment to control insect pests.
Rokill’s 3 Year Guarantee
Many companies offer a guarantee on the components and parts of their installations. However, our guarantee is different. We provide a 3 year guarantee that the bird proofing installation is effective against the specified species of bird.

Rokill Avian Laser Deterrent system
Laser technology is being used to deter pest bird species in numerous environments including manufacture, distribution, agriculture and aviation. The principle of repelling birds with a laser beam is inspired by nature. Birds perceive the approaching laser beam as a physical danger. It appeals to the survival instinct, causing the birds to fly away. The continuous presence of the moving laser beam keeps areas free of birds, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The systems have been employed at sites where physical proofing may not be possible or is undesirable for aesthetic reasons. The installation of netting can be guaranteed to be 100% effective, laser systems have achieved impressive results of up to 90% on low to medium pressure sites. The use of laser technology is effective particularly when used as part of an integrated bird control program that may use other deterrent/control techniques.
