Rooftop Bird Netting / Pigeon Protection

Bird Netting may sound harmful but the truth is that the methods we employ for removing access to rooftops and balconies for pigeons and other birds is completely safe for the birds and a humane deterrent. Pests can carry disease into a workplace and also cause the malfunction of air ducts and other ventilation points, apart from making the exterior of a building look unsightly. Netting is often the most cost effective solution for urban bird problems. A properly installed bird net cannot physically harm the birds - just frustrate them!

How it Works

The netting, if properly installed to ensure no gaps, presents an impenetrable barrier to keep the birds away from the surfaces being protected.

Successful Pest Control

Roof pigeon netting

A tight, well-installed Bird Netting of the right mesh size is the only proofing solution which can be confidently offered to solve virtually any urban bird problem. The netting used is specially made to withstand a wide range of environmental conditions. It will not absorb water, will not rot, is stabilised against Ultra Violet light and is chemically inert. If a corrosion-resisting suspension system is used and provided the net is not physically damaged, you should expect a working life of 10 years or more.


Bird netting can be used vertically or horizontally, in small or large areas. The very wide range of fixings offered means that the netting can be suspended on virtually any structure or substrate. With specially designed fittings, it can even be used to protect roofs.


When properly installed, Bird Netting is very difficult to see from only a few metres away. Very often the only evidence is a shadow against the sky. The most popular colour is black, but on light coloured buildings stone or translucent netting may be preferable. A particularly discreet net is available in the 19mm (3/4") mesh size, appropriately called "Shadow Net". Translucent netting might also be appropriate for well-nets where people will be looking up through them at the sky.

Cost Effective

As one net can be used to protect many perching places.
