Nova Falcons has extensive experience in the field of wildlife control in general, and specifically in the control of falconry birds in Ibiza. The approach that is always taken when carrying out bird control is based on the integral control of the species to be controlled, always drawing up a work plan that includes corrective, organisational and preventive measures to prevent the problem from continuing to reproduce.
Working environment, focus of attraction or possible limitations in the measures to be implemented are issues that are always taken into account when planning bird control. Among the measures that we have been using for bird control in Ibiza and Formentera, we highlight, firstly, the Biological Control through the use of falcons and eagles, i.e. falconry.
For more than 10 years, Nova Falcons has been successfully controlling birds with falconry in Ibiza on species such as the yellow-legged gull (Larus michahellis), wood pigeons (Columba palumbus), rock pigeons (Columba livia) or common starlings (Sturnus vulgaris), as well as other smaller species of birds, such as sparrows or wagtails.
Nova Falcons in Ibiza has a team of falcons and eagles trained to work in industrial, urban and agricultural environments: peregrine falcons, saker falcons, gyrfalcons, hybrid falcons and harry eagles are some of the species that make up our animal team. Falconry (Biological Control) is very effective because of its high specificity, i.e. it focuses on the target species. Falconry is not a broad-spectrum corrective measure that has a secondary effect of harming or damaging the environment or other non-target animal species. Falconry acts on the pest birds causing the problem, without generating any chemical residues or environmental pollution.
However, and in spite of being an already specific control measure, creating work teams within the animal team, trained to adapt to each work environment, improves the results even more: airports, ports, landfills, sewage treatment plants, golf courses, crop fields, livestock farms, urban areas... are some of the environments for which we have the necessary experience to carry out the work with the desired results.
