PSEM Ltd have been our first point of call for all our properties when it comes to pest control works. They have efficiently and effectively carried out pigeon and gull works for us in Norwich and Great Yarmouth and I wouldn't look anywhere else for this service. Price is often key but when it comes with quality work PSEM are the type of company we are happy to do business with.
Mr Ian Reid, Citygate Developments
Haydon from PSEM has been gardening for us for 4 years. Cutting grass, weeding beds and planting shrubs and flowers are his regular duties although he's been happy to paint, clean windows and clear gutters when asked. He's punctual and reliable and his prices are very reasonable.
Mrs J Cox, Hingham
I run a rapidly expanding pest control company in London but when it comes to feral pigeons we decided to sub-contract to the experts in this field. I've used Haydon from PSEM for over 10 years and have no problem recommending his company. He treats my customers as his own, with respect, politeness and a professionalism that reflects well on my own company.
Peter Mason, Asset Pest Control
I manage a number of rental properties in the Wymondham area and regularly use PSEM for maintenance work. Whether its a small repair while the premises are occupied or to full re-paint, garden clearance and pressure washing patios and paths on change over of tenants I know I can rely on them to carry out a quick but diligent job at an affordable cost.
Mr C Harding, Wymondham
GALLERY OF WORK
Royal Arcade, Norwich Pigeon spiking and netting
The Royal Arcade in Norwich is one of the city's historic landmarks. So the preservation of it's architecture is of up-most importance. As in most city's pigeons roost on ledges, window sills and roofs to gain a good view of feeding areas and to keep away from threats.
The result of such pigeon roosts is a build up of guano creating a mess and health hazard. The Royal Arcade was becoming a mess at both entrances and the slippery walking surface had become a slip hazard until PSEM installed anti pigeon spikes at the ornate entrance and anti pigeon netting at the market end.
Both systems have worked brilliantly with no pigeon roosts in 12 years. If you've visited Norwich in that time I bet you've noticed the arcade, but not the pigeon deterrents. If you look closely at the images displayed here you will see both bird spikes and bird netting.
The systems we install have a low visual presence and are applied in a sympathetic manner. Anti pigeon spikes were used on the more decorative end as the stainless steel spikes would blend well with the materials used to make the ledges, sills, roof and tiled background. With the market entrance a beige net was used to cover the large elevation simply and effectively.
All surfaces were cleaned prior to the work with a suitable biocide to reduce health risks to the public and to the technicians carrying out the work. Access was gained safely and quickly using a boom lift early in the morning to minimise disruption to this busy thoroughfare to complete a highly successful and efficient pigeon proofing installation.
Historic Royal Arcade Norwich - Anti pigeon spikes and netting
London Street, Norwich Bird netting and spiking
In the heart of Norwich, London Street has many retail businesses and historic architecture that needs protecting from pigeons. Bird spiking and netting was required. On the left as you look up the hill most of the retail shops have had an anti pigeon net installed from shop sign top to gutter level by PSEM. The bird net solution covers a number of ledges and potential nesting sites with a net that blends in with the buildings to become barely visible. On the right hand side above number 40, pigeon spikes were installed while WS Lusher builders were carrying out maintenance work. We made full use of their scaffold and eliminate the pigeon infestation that had made a mess of the shops canopy for years.
St Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich Bird netting and spiking
PSEM are experienced and sympathetic to historic architecture and are often employed to work closely with the preservation of listed properties. Pigeons had been living inside the spire at the east elevation for years and when there was no room in the spire for the growing population some moved onto the stone carvings of the large east window. The bird waste in the spire created a heath risk and potential insect infestation while the roosting birds on the window started to cover the stained glass and also caused blockages in the gully below.
PSEM installed anti pigeon netting and spikes to the spire once the birds had been evicted and the waste removed. A large sheet of netting (8m x 15m) was installed over the window following detailed installation statements to the church's committee to assure all that the work was not only sympathetic to the look of the building but considerate to the fabric of the building.
Bury St Edmund Cathedral Bird netting and spiking
Bury St Edmund cathedral had 30 pigeons roosting on the three east elevation windows. Using a hydraulic platform, PSEM took one day to eliminate these roosting sites by installing black UV treated anti pigeon net over all three windows. Strategically placing the fixings between the carved stones PSEM caused no damage to the historic building and minimised the distraction the net may cause to tourists. The net is barely visible, so much so that a member of staff at the Cathedral asked 'when is the work going to be done?' this was two weeks after PSEM had completed it.
