Your business’s signage is the first thing customers notice when they visit your store. It reflects your branding and unique marketing style! As a business owner, you’ll want to keep your outdoor signs clean and pest free.
When birds decide to make your signage home, they can leave unsightly droppings or nests making your curb appeal less… well, appealing. Besides being unattractive, the bird droppings can be unsanitary and difficult to remove due to their acidity. If not cleaned, acidic bird droppings can corrode signage and paint, as well as roofing and outdoor furniture. Because droppings can spread disease, special techniques should be followed when cleaning and handling bird messes.
Birds can also cause damage to signage by pecking and roosting. Cleaning and repairing damaged signs can be expensive and disruptive to operations and overall productivity.
If you have noticed birds revisiting your businesses outdoor signs, call a professional! An experienced pest control company has many different control methods to protect your business from unwanted birds and other pests. Control methods that can work effectively on signs can include:
- Spikes – A system of blunt-edged spikes can prevent nuisance birds from landing or roosting on ledges and signs. Virtually invisible, the spikes are flexible to fit any contour.
- Control Gel – Waterproof, almost colorless and odorless, sticky control gel helps repel birds from perching or nesting. Control gel is used on horizontal surfaces (like signs), is effective even in high temperatures, and needs to be replaced only once every six months.
- Wire Barrier – This solution is used on long, uninterrupted ledges and helps prevent birds from landing on ledges by creating an unstable surface.
You can also ask your local pest control company about netting, patching and slopes as other control techniques.
On top of keeping the birds away, you’ll want to safely clean up after they are gone. Professional pest control technicians are trained to perform cleaning services thoroughly and safely in all business settings, including those where bird droppings can result in health code violations and possible fines or closures.
