The idea of bird netting is to provide an impenetrable barrier to the pest bird species, causing no harm to the birds and displacing the population to other areas.
This is achieved by first choosing the correct size of bird netting for the species of pest bird. A tensioned wire, either galvanised or stainless steel, is then installed around the periphery of the structure, with any additional cross wires being installed to carry the weight of the bird net. The net is then fastened to the wires using hog rings.
It all sounds quite simple but the installation of bird netting is considered to be a professional task and D.I.Y. installation should be carefully thought out as a single mistake can make the difference between success and failure of the system, and if access equipment is needed to carry out the work then first time success is needed to be cost effective.
