Guano Removal (Bird Dropping Removal) in Devon & Cornwall

We are able to carry out bird dropping removal throughout Devon, Cornwall and beyond – including Plymouth, Exeter and Torbay.

Guano removal (or bird dropping removal) is a service we are regularly asked to carry out, in addition to our bird proofing and bird control services. Our highly-trained technicians work at both commercial and domestic premises to remove bird droppings, using the correct equipment and PPE, to protect the health and safety of all involved.

In addition to being unsightly and causing damage to your building, bird droppings can also present a public health risk. Guano can harbour a number of fungi and bacteria that are potential causes of disease in humans, and the dried bird waste can become airborne if not handled carefully, potentially leading to inhalation.

Potential Issues:

  • Damage to property through the corrosion of surfaces
  • Unpleasant appearance and smell
  • Health hazards through contact or airborne particles


Did you Know …

Pigeon guano can contain the fungi which cause Cryptococcosis and Histoplasmosis, and the bacterium Chlamydia Psittaci, among other potential causes of disease.

Pigeons and gulls are the two species most commonly associated with a build up of guano, although we also come across accumulations caused by other bird species that regularly congregate at the same location.
