To maintain an effective bird control program at sports arenas, stadiums, fields and complexes is challenging. Open air stadiums face the most significant bird problems because it's impossible to exclude pest birds from flying in. Sports arenas with closed roofs are still prone from birds entering through open gateways, walking ramps and open tunnels. Sports fields and arenas provide pest birds many favorable spots to land and roost like roofs, rafters, beams, pipes, lights, and bleachers. Concession stand food like popcorn and peanuts are a nice treat for pest birds. Litter, open food and open garbage cans will always attract birds.
Pest birds can be more than a nuisance at sports facilities. On more than one occasion seagulls and pigeons have delayed games by landing on the field in flocks. In addition, birds pose health risks from their droppings, deface and deteriorate structures, destroy fields and landscaping and bother paying fans. Review our strategies below and recommended products for sports facilities to maintain an effective bird control management program.
Sports Stadium Bird Control Strategies The first strategy for effective bird control for sports complexes is to accept the fact that pest birds will be a problem and implement an effective bird control management plan. The best practices for maintaining effective bird control in your sports facility is to be proactive and take preventative steps from attracting them in the first place. Maintenance crews should empty garbage cans frequently before they overflow and keep them in covered dumpsters. Sweep up spilled food in walkways and concourses promptly. Train staff and maintenance personnel to be aware of signs of bird problems in the bleachers or on the field and have a plan of attack for immediate bird removal when necessary. Routinely check lights, rafters, beams and other potential roosting spots on a regular basis for nests and droppings.
