Why Pigeon Control is Required
There are estimated to be more than 18 million pigeons in the UK. Not only are they undoubtedly 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 droppings, but also because 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 specific 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 result in buildings to look unsightly, but can also present a health hazard when dried out as it’s believed that spores from dried droppings when breathed in can cause a flu-like illness in humans. Furthermore nests and roosts are commonly infested with undesirable insects such as mites, and sometimes there is no choice but to implement control methods.
Techniques of Pigeon Control
The killing or clearing of birds from an area is almost never an effective approach 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 carried out by a qualified, experienced, licensed and insured professional pest controller in accordance with the Health and Safety Act 1974.
There are numerous methods that can be employed 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.
