Standard Operating Procedures

The Bird Control Company abides by all relevant statutory obligations.

We carry out regular staff training sessions, both external and in-house, working in conjunction with accredited training bodies in order to meet both our own and client-specific requirements.

All our operatives are highly experienced and hold qualifications in falconry, as well as the BPCA (British Pest Control Association) Certificate in Urban Bird Control & Management.

Our operatives are certified as competent for working at height, and are qualified to operate access equipment.
