Pearl Harbor Defense Distribution Depot Pigeon Netting Installation
The Army Corp of Engineers was in the process of building a new Defense Distribution Depot at Pearl Harbor to store materials and goods for the military. In the past, other airplane hangars and warehouses at military bases had developed pigeon problems. The cross beam structure of hangar and warehouse design is very attractive to pigeons for roosting and nesting. Rather than let a costly pigeon problem develop, they decided to spec pigeon & bird control netting as a preventative measure and made the bird control product installation part of the building process.
Pigeon Control Product Solution
Our bird control team worked with the Army Corp of Engineers and subcontractor Miller Watt Construction to install pigeon net across the entire ceiling of the warehouse facility, cutting off all pigeon access to the support beam above. Installing 3/4″ bird nets in such an large space is difficult and requires expertise in setting the correct net cabling support system, pulling the pigeon net correctly to ensure there are no gaps large enough for pigeons to gain access to the protected area and experience using boom lifts to install pigeon netting so the pigeon control product does not rip or tear and product is not wasted. The pigeon control team at Bird Solutions has years of experience working large jobs such as this as well as other warehouses and airplane hangars to ensure a professional and long-lasting pigeon exclusion installation.
Bird netting comes in various sizes to combat different bird species. The 3/4 inch mesh size bird net excludes all bird species, from pigeons to sparrows. The bird netting consists of twisted and knotted polyethylene twine designed to last 10 years or more, and bird net is one of the most effective pigeon control products on the market. This pigeon net installation also included the use of net zippers to allow access for maintenance on lighting fixtures. Once installed, the pigeon net effectively blocks the pigeons from accessing any part of the entire area and forces them to leave as there are no areas to perch or nest on anymore.
Pigeon net installed to protect the new defense distribution depot facility at Pearl Harbor from any unwanted winged visitors. Zippers were installed in the horizontal net surface to allow for maintenance access to lighting. Pigeon net is nearly invisible once installed from ground level, making for a pigeon free, clean facility without an intrusive-looking pigeon control product installation.
Pigeon netting is installed horizontally across the entire warehouse ceiling by using a boom lift for access. A tight cable support support system and taut pigeon net ensure that no gaps are left for pigeons to roost or nest in the beam structure above.
The entire ceiling of this new defense distribution depot facility is protected with pigeon net to keep pigeons from defecating on the high tech equipment and supplies this warehouse will contain below. The pigeon net presents an impenetrable barrier to the pigeons that want to access the rafters for nesting or roosting opportunities.
