Back to University for MJ Backhouse

MJ Backhouse

MJ Backhouse returned to university again last month to help York University with their preventative pest control measures.

The team at York University are incredibly proactive with their pest control measures, using a range of different pest control measures on their multiple buildings over the years. Some of the previous examples can be found in articles below:

For the most recent project, MJ Backhouse was asked to add Pigeon spiking to the brand-new Piazza building on York Uni East Campus. To do this, the MJ Backhouse team gained access by 12 metre cherry picker and the whole job saw us use over 100 metres of stainless steel spikes.

Pigeon spiking is an incredibly good method of pest control for birds and is a humane way of making sure that birds cannot perch, nest or foul on your building. Adding them straight away on this new build should ensure the building retains is new look for far longer. Also, with all the buildings now having some form of bird control, the university is effectively limiting and bird activity on the campus before they have a huge problem.

If like York University you are looking to be proactive, rather than reactive, with your pest control measures and would like to work with an experienced commercial pest control company, look no further than MJ Backhouse. For over thirty years, we have been helping businesses in Yorkshire protect themselves from pest activity on site and we use a range of different methods depending on pest and location. We also offer a contract scheme for all commercial clients to ensure your pest control measures remain fit for purpose at all times.
