Airport Hangar Open 02.G03.2k

It’s of paramount importance to have an effective bird control strategy at airports and airfields.

Preventing birds access to hangers, concourses, food courts, parking garages, and other areas keep passengers and personnel safe from unhealthy and potentially dangerous situations. Left unmanaged, large birds or flocks of small birds can be responsible for bird strikes that damage aircraft and put those onboard in peril. Pest birds can also damage radar systems and other equipment.

Bird Barrier can help you implement effective bird control methods to address hazardous bird problems found at airports of any size.

Below are the top problem areas of airports and the how we solve them.

HANGARS

Make Your Airplane Hangar A Place Birds Don’t Like

Airplane hangars provide an abundance of sheltering opportunities for pest birds. The large doors and superstructure will attract birds unless proper bird control measures are taken to eliminate or minimize the potential for bird problems.

Left unaddressed, bird droppings and debris from birds nesting in airplane hangers are a health risk to humans, will corrode the skin of the aircraft in the hangers, and even weaken the structure of the aircraft.

Using a combination of bird netting, bird deterrents, and bird repellents in your airplane hanger will protect your aircraft and the people that maintain them.

TERMINALS – OUTSIDE

Keep Walkways Slip-Free & Clean

If the exterior of your airport terminals have attractive roosting and nesting sites for pest birds, it can spell trouble. Bird droppings will make your sidewalks and walkways unsightly and leave a negative impression.

Mix in moisture from rain, fog, or snow, and the slippery mess can cause an airport patron to slip and fall and result in liability issues.

Let us help you keep your patrons safe by advising you on the bird control products you need for the overhangs, signage, lights, and other physical characteristics of your airport.

When Birds Find Their Way Indoors We Have the Tools to Get Them Out

Birds that find their way into airport terminals pose several risks. There are health risks associated with having bird droppings on floors, countertops, around food courts, on drinking fountains, in bathrooms, and other areas of airport terminals.

Airport terminals are often high-traffic areas and bird droppings can go unnoticed in the sea of humanity bustling about.

Pest birds can also become aggressive if they feel trapped or feel that a human is infringing on its territory or nesting area.

And bird nests can cause damage to equipment in the terminal, or result in unpleasant odors if the location of a nest results in the death of the hatchlings.

Employing proper bird control methods in airport terminals can be nearly invisible to the passengers, and help keep them safe from harm.

No Birds Allowed At The Airport Apron

The cargo and passenger loading areas of airports — also known as “the apron” — are attractive to pest birds if bird control methods aren’t in use.

Jetways and other articulating equipment create innumerable nooks and crannies for birds to hide and nest and bird droppings can damage this equipment while creating safety hazards for ground crews.

To protect passengers, airport personnel, cargo, and equipment, it is important to deter birds from these areas so that airport operations can run smoothly.

SIGNAGE

Protecting airport signs and your brand from Birds

There are probably more signs at an airport than at any other type of facility. Everyone likes airport signs because they help get us to where we need to go.

Pest birds also like airport signs. Signs with channel lettering and hanging box signs are common places for birds to nest. When a bird decides to make an airport sign its home, its bird droppings create an eyesore of something that you otherwise want to attract the attention of your visitors.

Removing bird droppings from a sign can be costly and the cleanup operation can inconvenience your customers. The best way to solve your signage bird problem is to prevent it from happening in the first place.

Contact us so we can recommend the best bird control products to protect your airport signs against the damage caused by birds.

Protect Your Airport Towers from birds

Airport properties are heavily invested in technologies to keep arriving and departing aircraft and their passengers safe.

Pest birds roosting and nesting on or around radar systems or other technology important to aviation can create a dangerous environment.

The impact of wildlife strikes or bird strikes has been well documented. As scary as wildlife strikes and bird strikes are, there is also a deeply concerning risk about the operational integrity of airport equipment that isn’t adequately protected by effective bird control methods.

Preventing birds from endangering people or being a nuisance is what we do. Let us help you keep your your airport safe from bird problems.

Get Birds Off Your Rooftops

An increasingly popular trend for airport design and architecture is the use of glass atriums.

They are a wonderful way to bring natural sunlight and warmth into the terminal environment. Unfortunately, birds can foul the glass and ruin the effect.

Consult with one of our bird control experts to learn about the bird control methods that will discourage birds from fouling your airport’s glass atrium.

Protect Your HVAC Equipment & the Clean Air it Delivers from Bird Droppings

HVAC equipment is incredibly important to airports. If it isn’t working, you can’t simply open a window to provide relief to the thousands of people in your airport terminals.

Pest birds pose a significant risk to HVAC systems. Dried bird droppings can become airborne, pulled into your ventilation system and put the health of your visitors, employees, and contractors at risk.

Nesting material can damage the operational integrity of the HVAC unit and later require expensive repairs.

An ounce of bird control can prevent bird damage that will cost thousands later.

PARKING

Protect Customer & Rental Parking Structures from Damaging Droppings

If you are responsible for the parking areas of an airport of any size, you have hundreds or thousands of cars in and out of your parking facilities every day.

Vehicles in your parking structures can be susceptible to damage from birds. The risk of damage from bird droppings is greater for covered and indoor parking structures than for outdoor parking structures, but both types of parking arrangements carry some risk for the owner of the property.

Although your terms of use may state that you’re not responsible for damage from birds or bird waste, simply ignoring a bad situation involving birds that can lead to damage to personal property isn’t advisable.

Contact us to discuss solutions that can mitigate the potential liability you may have for damages to personal property related to bird infestation and other bird problems.
