The Horrible Truth about bird Netting

65 views

Published on

Netting is one of the most common and utilised bird control methods.

It is proven to be really effective by physically blocking pest birds from the desired areas.

An issue with bird netting can occur if it is not installed properly. In this case the birds can still land on the area but then they get trapped inside.

Smaller bird spices like sparrows could get tangled up in the net itself and seriously damage their extremities.

It is really important to consider these disadvantages when choosing bird netting in order to avoid fatal situations.
