Why Pigeon Control is Required
There are estimated to be more than 18 million pigeons in Britain. Not only are they undoubtedly very messy they easily damage roofing, and nests frequently block gutting and chimney flues. They can also be a health hazard, not just from their droppings, but also due to the fact that they have been known to carry disease. These include Chiamdiosis, a virus much like influenza, and Psittacosis, similar to pneumonia.
Pigeons are a particular problem in town and city centres and it’s estimated that councils spend up to Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 15 million a year cleaning up pigeon waste, which not only result in buildings to look unattractive, but can also present a health hazard when dried as it’s thought that spores from dried droppings when breathed in can trigger a flu-like illness in humans. Furthermore nests and roosts are commonly infested with undesirable insects such as mites, and in some cases there is no choice but to implement control methods.
Techniques of Pigeon Control
The killing or removal of birds from an area is seldom a successful method because it simply creates a vacuum which other birds will move into. Bird proofing through various means is the most efficient solution.
Bird work is dangerous, 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 numerous methods that could 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.
