Live Capture Program
Available from Feather Free Zone
On occasion, pest birds enter food processing/packaging plants, supermarkets, food establishments and/or pharmaceutical plants. When a pest bird enters any of these facilities, they create a hygiene problem, which is a public health concern. Thus, these pest birds must be removed immediately.
One way that pest birds that have become trapped within a facility can be removed is through the use of capture mist nets. Mist nets are special nets that are made out of extremely fine, yet strong, fibers that birds are not able to see. The mist net is placed directly in the flight path of the birds so that they fly into the netting at their normal speed. When the birds are captured in the netting, because the netting is so fine, the bird will become entangled in the netting and can be safely removed from the netting.
