Do you have a problem with pigeons nesting on your property?  Do you need advice about bird control?

Birds such as feral pigeons can be a nuisance in urban areas, where they live and breed in public spaces and buildings. They leave droppings on pavements and buildings, roost on ledges, roofs and even solar panels.  Fortunately, there are many effective strategies for bird control.

Managing pigeon populations effectively requires a multi-pronged approach:

Our bird control experts take a thorough and comprehensive approach to bird control and deterring birds such as pigeons from nesting on your property.

We focus on:

Habitat modification: Discouraging nesting by making buildings less attractive, like installing netting or spikes.  

Clean environment: Safely cleaning any bird droppings which can be harmful to public health, as well as being unsightly.

Tailored Bird Control Solutions

Our bird control services are designed to meet the needs of a wide range of clients from residential and commercial properties to restaurants, cafesstadiums, sport and entertainment venues.  Before we attempt to control a pigeon infestation,  it is important to identify the scope of the problem.

Pigeons typically live in flocks that range from a few birds to hundreds and the best treatment will vary depending on your unique situation.  We will first find the birds’ nesting sites and food sources. In many cases, these can be eliminated or reduced to discourage the birds from returning.

As well as removing nesting sites and food sources, it is important to make the area less attractive to pigeons. This may include removing water sources, such as birdbaths, and trimming back any trees or shrubs that may provide shelter. Additionally, it is important to block off any potential entry points, such as holes in walls or roofs, to prevent the birds from entering the area.

Evaluating Potential Solutions

Once we have identified the scope of the problem, we can recommend the best solution for your situation. These will include bird deterrents such as netting, spikes, and gels. Bird deterrents will block off access to roosting and nesting sites and prevent pigeons from accessing food sources. By using these deterrents, it is possible to reduce the number of pigeons in an area and keep them away from buildings.

Often the nesting areas are on high buildings or hard to reach places.  Our certified abseiling team is available to assist with any pest control measures that require the use of roped access.

Guano removal and clean-up

The clean-up process is an important part of our bird control services.  We will safely remove nests and safely remove all guano.  Bird droppings (guano) can be harmful to public health.  It is also corrosive and can damage brickwork and stonework.

Bird control and the law

If you have a problem with birds on your premises, it is important to seek professional advice because Wild birds and their eggs in the UK are protected by law under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.  The law only allows professionals such as trained pest controllers to deal with certain species.  Additionally, it is important to be aware of any regulations about the use of poisons or other chemicals to control pigeon populations.

Business owners in the UK must comply with the Food Safety (General Food Hygiene) Regulations 1995, so a bird colony on the premises could result in prosecution.
