Pigeon control in London
Pigeon and Bird control in London
Pigeons are the most commonly seen pest in London and are responsible for costing millions of pounds of damage to properties each year. The feral pigeon can hatch up to three broods a year with two eggs in the clutch being the norm.The feral Pigeon is classed as vermin and they can pose a serious health risk to people, carrying a multitude of diseases and renowned for harbouring biting insects which include mites, they are also responsible for intestinal infections and respiratory problems.
Bird proofing and bird deterrence systems have proven to be the most effective pest control procedures to be implemented to insure that pigeons do not nest,roost or perch on properties. Shooting and trapping although effective at the start of a treatment do not constitute an ongoing preventative measure as new flocks of pigeons quickly re-invest the old territories.
Anti-roosting spiking systems are deemed to be the most humane pest control procedures available as birds are not killed and instead pushed on to new areas. we feel that studying the pigeons before treatment is critical so that we can measure the size of the flock and understand there behaviour so that we can implement the appropriate preventative measures, this may include spiking, wire systems or netting.
