Birds considered pests in Australia include pigeons, European starlings and sparrows. Pest birds can nest in your property, causing smells, damage and spreading disease.
Why control birds?
Birds left unchecked can cause considerable damage to your business. Birds legally considered pests in Australia are pigeons, European starlings, common Myna and house sparrows.
- Pigeons and sparrows seek out the shelter of historical buildings, as well as roosting in loading bays, eating foods from your storage areas, spreading unsightly dropping and fouling stock.
- Pest birds are all introduced species with no natural Australian predators and they are not protected under Australian law (unlike birds such as Magpies or Cockatoos, which are protected, native species)
- Pest birds can transmit and carry diseases such as salmonella, toxoplasmosis and encephalitis. They also carry and spread fleas, mites, ticks & lice.
- Birds nests can clog pipes and chimneys, causing electrical outages. Their nests can also attract extra pest insects around your home

How to prevent birds
Birds can be prevented from nesting on a structure by making it impossible for them to find a spot to roost. This can be done by having professionals adding bird prevention tools to your building like anti-roosting strands or netting. You should additionally keep all rubbish in sealed bins, cover any compost piles and remove sources of water (like birdbaths). Clean your gutters regularly and seal up any holes that could be a good looking place for a nest.
