Wildlife Control for Manufacturing Plants
Beaver Control

North American beavers are the largest rodents on our continent. They have been known to reach 70+ pounds. When beavers inhabit areas near your manufacturing plant, they can dam off feeder creeks, runoffs and culverts, allowing the surrounding land to become heavily flooded. Their dams also create unnatural erosion.

In addition to these problems, beavers can interfere with the cooling and drainage systems of manufacturing sites. Their instinct to dam waterways can severely disrupt the daily operations of your facility by restricting water flow. Beavers also create bank burrows that can undermine levees and roadways surrounding retention ponds and other controlled water bodies.

Beavers’ long, burrowing claws easily penetrate the membranes used to create artificial water bodies, resulting in water loss and expensive repairs. Also, the animals don’t like the sound of splashing or running water, so they will destroy powered fountains and pump lines to quiet the noise.

Beavers construct their dams with large amounts of sticks, logs and mud. They often destroy ornamental trees to build their lodges. Removal by hand is labor-intensive but is often the only option when the dam is located in an area that’s inaccessible by heavy machinery. (And even if a backhoe is used, it is said that a pair of beavers can outpace the machinery and quickly rebuild their dams the following night!)

Beavers are territorial. After removal from your site, it’s likely that neighboring beavers will move into the newly available habitat.

Solutions

While habitat modification is possible at some sites, it’s not often cost-effective. Trapping is the most appropriate method to control beavers. Our team will perform a site assessment and provide recommended control options specific to your property.

Note that some states require property owners to apply for special trapping permits for beavers. If your facility is located in a state that requires a trapping permit, we will be happy to assist you with the application process.

Pigeon Control

Pigeons use a variety of habitats but are commonly found in and around large man-made structures. Manufacturing plants are often prime locations for pigeons roosting and perching.

Pigeons nesting under building canopies, supports, ledges and signage can become a serious inconvenience, as well as a health hazard for your employees and guests. Accumulations of pigeon droppings, or guano, are unsightly and render walking surfaces slippery and dangerous. Guano contaminates the area with bacteria and fungi and can harbor several serious diseases, including salmonella and histoplasmosis.

Guano can damage structures and equipment, requiring expensive repairs if the droppings are not cleaned and removed appropriately. Guano is particularly damaging to metal and painted surfaces, and will often leave stains etched into the surface, even after cleaning and disinfecting. This is due to the corrosive nature of the acids in the droppings.

The longer the birds stay in the area, the more numerous they will become.

Solutions

Denying pigeons the ability to perch and nest can be accomplished in a variety of ways, depending on your building structures. Options include exclusion netting; bird wiring; metal screens; electrified deterrent systems; gel repellents; visual deterrents such as lasers, reflectors or other light-emitting devices; and even sonic and subsonic repellents. Often the most straightforward and inexpensive solutions are the most effective.

In addition to repelling or excluding the birds, we may also suggest population reduction. This can be done in a variety of ways, but trapping is usually the most cost-effective and efficient. Trutech® technicians are experts at trapping pigeons, and our trapping techniques can often remove large numbers at one time. This type of service can be done on an as-needed basis or as a recurring service, similar to pest control.

Our team is focused on providing a permanent, quality solution to your pigeon problems.
