Reasons why Pigeon Control is Necessary
There are believed to be more than 18 million pigeons in Britain. Not only are they definitely very messy they easily damage roofing, and nests quite often block gutting and chimney flues. They can additionally be a health hazard, not just from their excrement, but also due to the fact that they have been known to carry disease. These include things like Chiamdiosis, a virus much like influenza, and Psittacosis, similar to pneumonia.
Pigeons are a distinct problem in town and city centres and it’s estimated that councils spend up to Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 15 million a year clearing up pigeon waste, which not only cause buildings to look unsightly, but can also present a health hazard when dried as it’s thought that spores from dried droppings when inhaled can trigger a flu-like illness in humans. Additionally nests and roosts are commonly infested with unwanted insects such as mites, and sometimes there is no choice but to carry out control methods.
Methods of Pigeon Control
The killing or clearing of birds from an area is seldom an effective approach because it just simply creates a vacuum which other birds will move into. Bird proofing through various means is the most effective solution.
Bird work is hazardous, and should only be performed by a qualified, experienced, licensed and fully insured professional pest controller in accordance with the Health and Safety Act 1974.
There are various methods that can be used inside and out including netting, spikes, expanding foam and modern proofing and deterrent products. We have a number of knowledgeable bird proofing professionals who would be happy to offer their advice.
