How important is bird-proofing? Take a look at this chimney we bird-proofed recently


Bird-proofing is a vital service that is offered by Avon Pest Control. As your premier UK pest removal experts, we specialise in all bird nest problems for residential and commercial establishments. While birds are beautiful animals that we all love to look at and adore, they can cause a range of problems when nesting in homes and businesses. This includes damaging exteriors and interiors, along with congregating and infesting basements, attics, garages and crawlspaces. Birds also love to nest and feed their young in chimneys, including pigeons, crows, brown birds, black birds, sparrow, and at times – even large hawks and eagles. The only solution is timely, safe and affordable bird removal services.

Avon Bird Removal Services
Avon deals with bird problems in a timely and efficient manner. This includes bird nest removals, along with blocking access and exit routes. Unless a bird is overly aggressive and starts attacking humans and pets, the animal will be safely removed and sent over to a local animal shelter or clinic. Most birds, however, will simply fly off once their nests and dwellings are permanently removed. Avon abides by all stringent rules and regulations when it comes to safe bird and nest removals. There are never any pesticides used, and only large and predatory birds are dealt with in a somewhat aggressive manner. All other birds are simply removed off the property in a humane manner.

Quality and Experience Counts
Avon is a reputable and seasoned pest control company with years of experience. From bird removal to insect control and elimination, we continue to help countless clients with their pest control problems. One phone call or e-mail is all you need to schedule a complimentary consultation and receive a free estimate today.

In the meantime, have a look at the chimney we recently made bird proof in the photo above!

What does a common wasp look like and what damage can they do?


With summer in full swing, wasp infestation is at an all time high. This is due to above average heat and soaring temperatures, which see wasps, congregate in residential and commercial properties. Most wasps nest structures are made of mud and are usually located on the sides and tops off your exteriors. However, these nests can also be formed in attics, basements, crawlspaces, and even inside homes. The common wasp mainly has three functions; to look for prey, breed, and feed their young. They also possess dangerous stingers that can cause serious problems for humans and domesticated pets. Wasps are also attracted to bright and vibrant colors – and if they feel in danger – can literally swarm a person, dog, or cat. With years of extensive wasp removal experience, Avon Pest Control can safely remove wasp nests and prevent infestation in all properties.

What do Wasps look like?
Wasps come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The only constant is that they have wings and stingers to protect themselves from potential predators. The common wasp is usually black and yellow in color – similar to a bee. They are, however, larger than bees and have brown colored wings. They also have two large antennae in the front of the head, which helps them track down and kill prey for feeding. Like bees, wasps do emit a buzzing sound and this gets louder when they feel they are in danger. Wasps do congregate for protection – and like bees – send out signals to other wasps when potential prey or predators are present. Wasps possess deadly and sometime fatal stings if they are attacked or provoked.

What to do about Wasp Infestation?
Wasp infestation must be eliminated and eradicated ASAP. In fact, failure to act quickly can result in more wasp nests being formed. Avon Pest Control has the tools and expertise to remove wasps and their nests from all your living spaces. This is done by:
