Reasons why Pigeon Control is Necessary
There are estimated to be more than 18 million pigeons in Britain. Not only are they undeniably very messy they readily damage roofing, and nests commonly block gutting and chimney flues. They can also 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 similar to 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 thought that spores from dried droppings when breathed in can cause a flu-like illness in humans. Furthermore nests and roosts are frequently infested with unwanted insects such as mites, and in some cases 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 a successful method because it simply creates a vacuum which other birds will move into. Bird proofing through various means is the most effective solution.
Bird work is dangerous, 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 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 delighted to offer their advice.
