  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Virginia's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Virginia's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Fairfax county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Burke animal control for wildlife issues.

Burke Wildlife Removal Tip: What is bird netting and how does it work?

Bird netting has been successfully used by farmers, in order to keep birds away from their crops, for years. It is available in a variety of sizes and colors, so it easily blends into the surroundings.

What is it?

Bird netting, or anti-bird netting, is a mesh material that allows air and light to enter, while keeping birds out. It is available in a variety of sizes, meaning that the size of the holes can vary, depending on the birds that you are trying to exclude from the area. The nets are available in large rolls, usually black, green or white in color.

How does it work?

It works by stopping birds from being able to enter through it, thus protecting whatever is on the inside of the net.

What is it used for?

There are various applications for the netting, mostly agricultural. It is used by farmers to protect their crops from being eaten by birds. It is also used in the fishing industry; it is placed over the large tanks at fish farms, in order to keep predator birds from reaching the fish that are in the tanks. One of the most important applications is found in the mining sector, ponds containing harmful chemicals are closed off in order to keep birds from drinking water that could potentially poison them.

Use in homes

One of the reasons why bird netting is so popular as a bird exclusion device is because it blends into the fašade of the building. It is not as unsightly as some of the other applications available, for example needle strips. The nylon netting has been protected against UV rays, meaning that it will not perish if left in direct sunlight for long periods of time.

Does it work?

As there are so many different products available, that all promise to do the same thing, it is important to research your options. According to my research, bird netting is one of the most effective ways of excluding birds from your property. It is important to make sure that you find netting that has small enough openings to keep the pigeons out.

Installation

Installing bird netting in an agricultural setting is a relatively straightforward endeavor and can quite easily be completed with only a small amount of assistance. The installation in an urban setting is completely different and will have to be approached as such. Depending on the area that needs to be enclosed, it might be necessary to get a professional to install it. They will have the tools as well as the knowledge necessary to make sure that your netting is installed in a quick and efficient fashion.
