The features and advantages of bird netting for avian control programs are many and varied. For airports or areas that need to ensure that bird populations either do not get out of hand or do not interfere with vital transportation or other activities, going with such netting — which generally is very cost-effective — can make a great deal of sense.
Bird netting — in specific terms — is looked upon as a more sensible way of controlling large populations of birds that — when left uncontrolled — might interfere with any number of human activities. This can include interfering with agricultural processes, aviation and a number of other functions that seem to attract birds, for some reason.
Usually, one will also see netting in aviaries or bird sanctuaries, where it is employed to separate different bird species or to keep humans from interfering with the daily activities of the birds within the aviary or sanctuary. It also can be used to keep migratory bird species and their flocks from congregating in large numbers. It will convince them, in some cases, to reroute their migration patterns as well.
