Reasons why Pigeon Control is Necessary
There are believed to be more than 18 million pigeons in Britain. Not only are they undoubtedly very messy they readily damage roofing, and nests frequently 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 unpleasant, but can also present a health hazard when dried as it’s believed that spores from dried droppings when inhaled can cause a flu-like illness in humans. Furthermore nests and roosts are frequently infested with undesirable insects such as mites, and sometimes there is no choice but to implement control methods.
Methods of Pigeon Control
The killing or clearing of birds from an area is almost never an effective method because it simply creates a vacuum which other birds will move into. Bird proofing through a variety of means is the most efficient 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 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.
