|32nd Street Naval Station Pigeon Control Problem|
Bird Problem: At the 32nd Street Naval Station, our bird control team worked as a subcontractor through Strong Hold Engineering. They were working with the Army Corp of Engineers to solve pigeon problems at 32nd Street Naval Station. Pigeons were roosting and nesting in the support beams and lights in the rafters, leaving bird droppings all over materials being shipped through the warehouse. This pigeon problem created unsanitary conditions and resulted in regular cleanup and hazardous materials issues for the workers in the area. This particular pigeon control product installation required the use of 60’ boom lifts to install the pigeon control netting and took about 6 weeks to complete.
Bird Control Product Solution: Pigeon netting, a 2 inch mesh of twisted and knotted polyethylene twine designed to last 10 years or more, was installed horizontally to exclude bird access to the many support beams and lighting fixtures where the pigeons were roosting and nesting. The pigeon net installation included the use of bird net zippers to allow access for maintenance on lighting fixtures. Once installed, the pigeon net effectively blocked pigeon access to the entire area and forced them to leave as there were no areas left to perch. The bird net was also installed outside in the loading dock area to get rid of pigeons from the entire building area.
Pigeon netting installed horizontally across the ceiling of a warehouse at 32nd Street Naval Station effectively denies pigeons access to beams and lighting units where pigeons were roosting and nesting.
Pigeon net was installed horizontally on this loading dock outside to keep pigeons from roosting and nesting there as well.
The pigeon net installed at 32nd Street Naval Station keeps pigeons from defecating on the materials warehoused below. Before the bird netting was installed, materials were damaged from pigeon droppings and extra cleaning of the pigeon droppings required as well, resulting in significant labor costs.
