Scenario: Hiring a Maid vs. Installing a Pigeon Net

You live in a luxury apartment in a gated community. You don't have time to clean your balcony, and also there's a tree nearby that sheds leaves and flowers frequently. Balconies will be dirty due to pigeon droppings. You need to clean your balcony on a daily basis, and it takes you at least 15-30 minutes, using cleaning tools like a floor mop, liquids, Pressure Washer, Rubber Gloves, Paper Towels or Old Rags etc.

You decide to hire a maid or book a house cleaning service to keep it clean. Hiring a maid or booking a house cleaning service can be a great way to save time and energy on cleaning, but it can also be expensive and still requires regular maintenance.

Plus, your balcony will be easier to maintain, giving you more time to relax and enjoy your outdoor space without the hassle of constant cleaning.

Case Study 2: Utilizing Bird Spikes for Bird Control

In situations where it's not feasible to install nets, such as on plain surfaces without any physical structures for support, bird spikes can be an excellent alternative for bird control. They can be used on various surfaces, including roofs, window ledges, and signage and other flat areas where nets can't be installed. Bird spikes deter birds by making it impossible for them to land or roost, without harming them. They're a humane and efficient way to protect your property from bird-related issues.


Scenario 1:

Imagine you own a cafe with an outdoor seating area. The cafe is in a city center, and you've noticed pigeons perching on your cafe's signage, making a mess and driving away customers. Installing a net isn't feasible because the signage is a flat surface without any support structures.


In this case, you can use bird spikes on the cafe's signage. The spikes will create an uneven surface that pigeons find uncomfortable, preventing them from perching or roosting on the signage. This will keep the area clean, more visually appealing, and more comfortable for your customers, all without causing harm to the pigeons.


Scenario 2:

Suppose you own a high-rise apartment building with numerous ledges and window sills that pigeons have made their home. The continuous accumulation of droppings is not only unsightly but also a potential health hazard for the residents. Installing bird nets might be challenging due to the lack of support structures on the ledges.


In this scenario, you could use bird spikes along the ledges and window sills of the building. The spikes would deter pigeons from landing and roosting, preventing the mess and potential health risks associated with their droppings. This solution is cost-effective, long-lasting, and humane, as it does not harm the birds.

Case Study 3: Net Installation at AC Outdoor Units

The split AC's outdoor units are a favorite spot for birds to build their nests, as these areas are often overlooked and seldom visited by people. Once birds begin nesting there, bird droppings quickly accumulate, making it difficult to remove them and their nests. These droppings are not just unsightly; they also carry various harmful germs that can lead to diseases.

Pigeon droppings contain a high concentration of ammonia and other acidic substances that can be corrosive over time. When these droppings accumulate on outdoor AC units or other metal surfaces, they can cause damage to the paint and corrode the metal, leading to a decrease in the lifespan of the unit and potential equipment failures.

Net installation around air conditioning (AC) outdoor units can be an effective solution for preventing pigeons and other birds from nesting and roosting on or near these units. Birds often find these units to be ideal spots for nesting due to the warmth they generate. However, this can lead to various issues, including the accumulation of droppings and feathers, which can block airflow and reduce the efficiency of the AC units. Installing bird nets around these units can help keep the birds away, ensuring that the AC units function optimally and remain clean.

Anti Bird Net for A/C outdoor


In an apartment complex, residents noticed that the outdoor units of their split AC systems were becoming popular nesting spots for birds. The area was relatively secluded, and the birds were able to build their nests undisturbed. As a result, bird droppings started to accumulate around the units, making the area unsightly and posing potential health risks.


Concerned about the hygiene and safety of the residents, the apartment management decided to take action. They hired a professional bird control service to install Pigeon net around your AC, effectively deterring the birds from nesting there.
