How Do To Keep Birds Out Of Gutters?

Are you experiencing issues with birds nesting in and around your home and gutters? Creating mess, noise and attracting other pests?
Here at King Group Australia we offer a solution to keeping your home and gutters free from birds.

If you have birds in your gutters specifically, there are a few ways to deter them. Consider installing:

  • Gutter guards: King Group Australia’ sister company Ultraguard, invented and manufacture an expanded Aluminium mesh once installed, prevent birds, debris and other pests from entering your gutter line.
    Ultraguard gutter guards are made from aluminium and create a barrier/ cover for your gutter. Birds will no longer be able to fit in the gutters to bathe, nest or congregate. Even if their breaks are thin enough to get into the gutter’s narrow crevice, they shouldn’t be able to reach the water. When they don’t have access to food, water and shelter, the birds will find another place suitable.
  • Bird spikes: Imagine a thin plastic panel with several spikes projecting upwards. These are roof bird spikes, also called anti-roosting strips. The strips make it uncomfortable for the bird to land. If you install them on the roof just above the gutters you can limit bird access to the gutters.

The Benefits of Bird Proofing – WHY?

Birds, mice, pests, and vermin find shelter and nest on roofs as these are relatively undisturbed and warm locations. When birds move into your home, they block gutters and downpipes with their nests and debris while the acidity of their droppings causes corrosion to your gutters and roof. All are avoidable problems with the right protection.

King Group utilize an expanded exposure grade Aluminium mesh as a protective and preventative measure to assist in protecting your house, roof, and property against the infiltration of any unwanted birds, pests, and vermin. Our bird proofing can stop the problem almost immediately. Through our years of industry experience, we endeavour to provide a cost-effective solution.

Health-Related Concerns

Bird droppings contain many nasty parasites and bacteria, including histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, psittacosis, encephalitis, aspergillosis and toxoplasmosis. Through removing opportunities for birds to nest, bird proofing significantly reduces the volume of droppings you will encounter. Keeping your roof and gutters clean, free, and protected against the possibility of any related issues arising due to bird infesting and nesting in your property.

Environmental Protection

Many of the birds we prove against are not native to Australia. They are foreign species that have a negative impact on our indigenous species. Discouraging these species from nesting and settling helps to ensure there is sufficient food and resources for our native birds to flourish.
