birdprobUrban bird populations have increased markedly in recent years, adding to the already significant problem of feral pigeons in and around public and retail buildings, houses and offices, warehouses and factories, bridges and monuments, sports andentertainment facilities, and transport hubs. Although starling populations which caused serious problems in the past have declined markedly over the last 30 years, they can still be problematic in some situations. House sparrows and other small birds can also cause particular difficulties for food manufacturers, processors and retailers.

A rodent inspection must aim to locate any signs of infestation and then identify the species, determine the extent of the infestation, locate potential harbourages and entry points and then use this information to plan a treatment program.
