While you are hard at work saving for the next holiday, who is watching over your holiday home?It is unfortunate that a holiday home is only used a small proportion of the year, leaving it empty and unattended. While pest birds are quite prepared to invade an occupied space, there is generally no deterrent that will disturb a pest bird from making a permanent home in your part-time one.  Left undisturbed and unnoticed for a long period of time a pest bird can cause all sorts of damage. Leaving you to clean up the mess and spend your holiday money…
Bird control for the home and business is much more than just keeping some stray pigeons from landing on the window ledge or treating the roof as the local hangout. The birds themselves are not just random visitors taking a break from flying around all day. They are actually regular visitors or looking for a decent place to roost. Birds are by nature habitual in their behaviour so once you have some birds that have decided that this is their spot, it is difficult to convince them to move on to find some other lodgings.When you have a pest birds…
OK let’s say that you HAD a bird infestation problem, and like most people/companies there was a lag-time between identifying the problem and rolling out the solution. So before the boys from Eagle Eye Bird Control arrived like the cavalry with their flashing units and nightmare sound systems, the birds have been getting comfortable…really comfortable...turning any flat space into roosting spots, setting up a designated area for the latrine (everywhere!) and passing around a bit of disease (as animals sharing close quarters tend to do). Now that the birds have been scared away you’re left with the aftermath! Bird Droppings…
A boat represents freedom, the ability to step onboard and leave the cares of the world behind and seek new horizons and adventures, even if you're only heading out to do a spot of fishing on the lake.  As most boats are only really used once in a while, they tend to be left unattended, except that is for the birds. Boats are a wonderful platform for birds to perch and roost on. Swing moorings are especially suited to birds as they are removed from daily human traffic but close to the main action of the harbour to keep a…
Urban birds are on the increase with aided by the abundance of food, roosting options, and the dwindling natural predators. This population explosion has caused some birds to become pests by their sheer numbers. Look at Geese for example or Haddidas, not your typical pest species, but due to their numbers, they can be considered a pest by some. As these pest species increase in numbers, they inevitably must spread out to find suitable roosting areas for the next generation. Feral pigeons can live up to 4 years and in their lifespan can lay up to 32 eggs. These eggs…

Health risks of bird infestation

Bird infestation can be a pest, no pun intended. Birds are cute from far but far from cute. They appear serene and tranquil when watching national geographic but that is as close as you’re willing to get and the extent of your admiration. Bird infestation can cause many health risks so perhaps it is preferred to watch documentaries than to personally invite them onto your property. Have you ever heard of poultry and swallow bugs? Well, if you are struggling with bird infestation you are about to be formally introduced. Bugs meet the reader; reader meet the blood sucking insects…

Without a doubt, bats are beneficial to the environment. They help in controlling pests by feasting on them, and they propagate fruits and plants by spreading seeds and pollinating flowers. But unlike cats and dogs, bats are not typically the animals you want to invite in your home. These flying mammals carry diseases that may be dangerous to humans, and even to your pets. Bats In The Attic Bats usually follow the air current that passes through the attic or any cracks existing in the house. Once they get inside your property, they use the ceiling or the attic as…
The avian flu virus currently affecting South African poultry is reaching a critical level. Farmers across the country are trying to implement urgent measures to reduce the risk of infection, which occurs when there is contact between the poultry and the wild birds that carry the virus.

Eagle Eye Bird Control is the largest company in Africa that specialises in the development, manufacturing, and installation of bird control products. The various…
