Solving bird problems at Lakeshore Plaza, Salt Lake City, UT
Lakeshore Plaza Project
Lakeside Plaza in Salt Lake City, Utah was treated to prevent an annual bombardment by thousands of swallows. The humane bird control product installation involved using a 60 boom lift to attach bird netting to the upper corners of the building overhang to provide a barrier denying the pest birds a suitable nesting site.
The bird netting can be installed many different ways, with different attachments depending on the configuration of the building and its substrate (material that is used to make the building).
Shown here is a closeup of commonly used, low-profile corner and intermediate attachments, along with the cable structure with 2" pigeon-sized bird net attached. At the Lakeside Plaza bird control installation, a smaller mesh size bird net was used to create an impenetrable physical bird barrier.
Bird Control Products
Bird netting is generally considered the best form of protection against birds since it is permanent, long-lasting and it creates a permanent bird barrier, completely blocking access to the area it protects. Because of the different mesh sizes available, it is effective against virtually any size bird.
There are many kinds of bird netting on the market. Nation Wide Bird Control uses StealthNet, the highest quality bird netting available. This bird net has extra U.V.-resistance embedded in the polyethylene itself to ensure a long-lasting protective barrier for your building. This bird netting consists of several strands of U.V. resistant polyethelene that are twisted and then knotted at each corner, creating a strong, impenetrable barrier against target birds. This bird control netting is fire retardant and is guaranteed by the manufacturer to withstand the elements for at least 10 years.
The bird netting is available in beige, black and translucent (milky white) colors to blend with your building or structure. Several different mesh sizes are available depending on the pest bird species targeted.
A cable support system is installed by our bird control team and the netting is then attached to the cable. The hardware used to attach the netting is top quality steel, guaranteed to support the weight of the bird net and withstand the elements for years.
