Anytime Gulls are landing on the corners or parapet of your roof you would be greatly benefitted by the Electrical Bird Shock Flex System. Customers with commercial air conditioning, commercial water cooling towers, commercial air filtration would also benefit. Customers on the residential side, particularly if they have a black or very dark coloured roof - gulls are attracted to black- a strip of the proper size flex track across the peak of the roof would keep the Seagulls away.

Large and/or long commercial pipelines, exhaust pipes or any lines near water you want to keep the seagulls off of to prevent rusting and rotting of the pipe material could benefit from the Flex Track System. The excrement from seagulls and other birds is very acidic and can rot throughout many different materials over time, destroying it and the contents.

There are several different types of bird shock flex track systems on the market that are very good deterrents to birds. some are better than other for our cold climate. Flex track systems don't work with snow and ice on them. The cold and the weight of snow and ice can damage the wires and interfere with the effectiveness of the shock. Canada’s colder climate demands a heavier duty system that isn’t affected by our winters. As with any other equipment, the Electrical Bird Shock Flex System must be inspected in the spring and fall for connections, breakage and regular maintenance. Spring will bring the heaviest bird populations compared to any other time of year.

The Electric Bird Shock Flex Track comes in different sizes and widths for different species. Small for starlings to extra large for turkey vultures and similar sized birds.

Bird Wire is a stainless steel wire system stretched between a series of poles and attached with wire springs to the poles. This creates a very unstable landing area for any bird as the springs make the wire keep moving and the wire is thin enough the bird can’t get a grip on it.
Bird wire is extremely low profile and is used widely throughput North America. It also carries GSA approval for historic buildings.

The Bird Wire system is very discreet . It is the least visible of all ledge products and is often utilized on high visibility ledges where architectural appeal is important.

The nylon coated, spring tensioned, stainless steel wire is attached to small stainless steel posts at differing heights at various intervals. These posts are attached to just about any surface using nylon anchor rivets which requires drilling into the surface. Glue on bases are also available as are specialized brackets and clamps for pipes and gutters. These allow for installation on hard to protect surfaces. Split pins can also be used to install Bird Wire inside window reveals.

Hawkeye Bird and Animal Control provides cleaning and disinfecting services as well as nest removal and netting for exclusion of birds or wildlife. Birds such as pigeons can deposit as much as 25 lbs of droppings per bird per year. Bird feces is very unsightly, is a health hazard and can damage buildings, vehicles, shrubs, trees, benches, statues and park fountains. Accumulated bird debris can attract mice, rats and flies.


Our workers are all WHMIS trained and have experience in hazardous and infectious material cleaning. Personal protective equipment is used. We use specialized cleaning agents specific to the job. Hawkeye also has power washers for heavy duty cleaning jobs. Hawkeye Bird and Animal Control cleans both Residential and Industrial sites. We do balconies, patios, warehouses, city sidewalks.

Proper planning and preparation is done before any cleaning job. We don’t deal with any explosive materials. We need to know if there are environmental dangers or hazards in the area i.e.: asbestos, or any dangers from inhaled substances ie.: open vats of solvents in industrial areas. People traffic or forklift traffic is important. We look for anything that can affect the health and safety of our workers as well as our customers and their employees. We decide what tools we may need to get the job done. Manlifts or scaffolding may be used on large industrial buildings or apartments and condominium buildings. We have also used a bosun’s chair. We have several power washers in our arsenal.

We take care to prevent the spread of possible contamination outside the area being cleaned. Any pests dead or alive and any nesting materials we find will be removed using proper procedures for removal. All contaminated material is double bagged in heavy duty trash bags, sealed and disposed of appropriately.

All our tools and equipment are disinfected after the job is done. Hawkeye can then net the area to prevent birds or wildlife from coming back into the cleaned area. Hawkeye Bird and Animal Control can discuss with the customer the many different bird and wildlife control solutions we have at our disposal, such as: Bird Spikes, Bird Wire, Bird Shock Flex Track, Bird Slide Ledge Protection System, Capture Netting™™, Exclusion Netting.

Eliminating pest bird problems may become complicated, frustrating, and costly. When it comes to bird control, offense is your best defense. Pro active bird control strategies, rather than reactive solutions, will give you much better and lasting results.

The number one bird problem on buildings is birds roosting and nesting on roofs and ledges. Their droppings deface and damage buildings and create unsafe and unhealthy conditions.

To keep birds off ledges, we use high quality, tested and tried equipment and devices such as points, coils, pin and wire, and electric shock repellers.
