About Southwest Avian Solutions

ABOUT SOUTHWEST AVIAN SOLUTIONS

Starting with a small loan of $25,000 at 21% interest in 1981 the owners started their General Pest Control services in Maricopa County Arizona along with doing Bird Control, Bee Removal & Gopher Control work under the name of Aaardvark Pest Control, Inc. We had routes all over Phoenix and the east valley in Maricopa County and grew to 15 employees until selling that business in 1997 to the largest pest management company in the world in order to concentrate on developing our new specialty services bird and bee control company called Arizona Wings N’ Stings.

From 1997 to 2014 Arizona Wings N’ Stings provided bird control solutions to residential and commercial properties as well as bee removal services all over Phoenix and Maricopa County. Becoming one of only a few companies in the entire southwest that specialized in problems for Pigeons and Birds where they come in contact with humans causing image, health and liability problems or concerns as well as doing other side services like bee removal services and some bat exclusion services.

As we grew it became apparent that the pigeon and bird control work was quickly becoming 95% of the business focus. At the same time many more other pest control companies in the valley were starting to be doing bee removal work for cheaper and cheaper prices until you can now find bee removal services for as low as $ 50.00 – $ 75.00 which was not profitable for us and we find it hard to imagine profitable for these other companies.

After 17 years of doing 1000’s of bird control projects and bee removal jobs with a great name like Arizona Wings N’ Stings we decided that we needed to reorganize our company priorities and change our name again to better reflect what we do day in and day out, so in March of 2014 Southwest Avian Solutions, LLC a bird solutions specialty company was born, providing humane pigeon control and pest bird control solutions to home and business all over Arizona and some surrounding south western states.

Every Job is Different

After 36 plus years in the Bird, Bee and Pest Control business we have learned a great deal through training provided by our suppliers, membership in the Nation Pest Management Association and the Arizona Pest Professional Organization, but our real training comes from 1000’s of man-hours of both hands on field work and experimental application work using different bird proofing, bird exclusion or deterrent materials and methods to find out what looks good and about what will work and what will not work in different situations and structures here in Arizona and hold up to our Arizona heat.

We do not subscribe to fast cures, gimmicks or a one method fits all. No matter how big or small a project is we look at each bird problem with an open mind and based on our extensive knowledge and experience try to analyze what is going on, why are the birds in this location, what can effectively be done to stop the pest bird problem with what bird deterrents and only then recommend what we feel will work the best for your pest bird problems and look as discrete as possible for our customer and their budget.

All of our installers have gone through the Birdbarrier and/or the Bird B Gone Certified installers training class’s to learn about all the different deterrents and hands on training classes on how to correctly install all the different bird control products these companies provide.

All of the Southwest Avian Solutions installers have gone through onsite roof top training for roof top fall protection and how to install the different roof top tie offs to help keep them as safe as we can, which is why you will see our installers wearing fall protection body harness’s plus you may see safety ropes hanging down from your roof that they use to secure themselves.

Unlike some companies in town whose employees show up in an old truck, we use clean well-marked, GPS equipped company vehicles with trained, experienced and uniformed personnel doing the Job Right, the 1st Time.

The manufactures of different bird control deterrents sometimes make claims that don’t hold up as claimed or hold up to our intense Arizona heat so it takes experience and knowledge to use the right products to give you the long lasting results you have paid for.

Save time, energy and money by having your pigeon control or bird control work done right the 1st time. By hiring Southwest Avian Solutions Arizona’s professional bird control specialist that guarantees the results, the workmanship and the products we install with our Bird Free Guarantee.

Fall Protection Safety on the Job

Fall protection is a big part of doing bird control work on any home or business since we are always working where the birds are, which is up high.

In 2016 Southwest Avian Solutions brought in an OSHA trainer consultant for help with developing our safety program to help keep our installers as safe as possible while working on your home or business.

All of the Southwest Avian Solutions installers have gone through onsite roof top training for roof top fall protection and how to install the different roof top tie offs to help keep them as safe as we can, which is why you will see our installers wearing fall protection body harness’s plus you may see safety ropes hanging down from your roof that they use to secure themselves.

All of our installers have gone thru the OSHA 10 hour training class and some have done the OSHA 30 hour training class as well as having on site safety training done for differential types of residential roofs.

As a side note, any safety tie off attachments that the installers use on your roof will have all of the holes sealed or filled and the tiles placed back and attached where they were.

Giving our employees the tools and the training to keep our employees safe while working at height on your home or business is very important to us.

Using properly applied roof top tie offs, secure ladder tie offs and other OSHA required protection takes longer than just putting a ladder up on the side of a house and climbing on the roof unsecured to do the bird control work without fall protection like the majority of most companies here in Arizona that are trying to do their bird control work do.

Some of these low price, unsafe companies can do their bird control work at lower prices than us by cutting corners on their materials and in putting their employees at risk of major injury from falling off the roof of your home or business; they are also risking large OSHA fines for not being trained in fall protection or using proper OSHA fall protection devices while at height.

Our employees are too important to us to not try and keep them safe while they do their job. It takes about 45 minutes – 2 hours additional time to keep them safe.

Please always ask the person giving you the quote if their employees use any sort of fall protection while working on your roof or if they have they done any OSHA fall protection training to keep their employees safe at height.
