Reasons why Pigeon Control is Required
There are estimated to be more than 18 million pigeons in Britain. Not only are they definitely very messy they easily damage roofing, and nests commonly 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 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 result in buildings to look unpleasant, but can also present a health hazard when dried out as it’s believed that spores from dried droppings when inhaled can trigger a flu-like illness in humans. Additionally nests and roosts are frequently infested with unwanted insects such as mites, and in some cases there is no choice but to carry out control methods.
Techniques of Pigeon Control
The killing or removal of birds from an area is seldom a successful approach because it just simply creates a vacuum which other birds will move into. Bird proofing through various means is the best solution.
Bird work is hazardous, and should only be performed by a qualified, experienced, licensed and insured professional pest controller in accordance with the Health and Safety Act 1974.
There are various 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 delighted to offer their advice.
