Pigeon Pest Control

Pigeons are pests to many and it can be difficult to get rid of pigeons, especially as they thrive in urban areas due to readily available food sources and fewer predators.

Pigeons breed rapidly and large numbers are due to several factors including:

  • Plentiful buildings, nooks and crannies for roosting
  • Discarded food scraps freely available
  • Children (and adults) willing to feed the birds
  • General warm temperatures and dry, covered areas
  • The cooing of other pigeons to attract and bond with each other
  • High roosting positions away from predators

British law protects birds and their eggs so it can be difficult to contain pigeon procreation. The responsibility of pigeon control or removal comes solely down to the property or landowners affected.

Humane pigeon control solutions

When the birds become a pest to local residents and the community action against persistent feeding can be taken by applying for a community protection order.

Some local councils find innovative ways to tackle the problem such as fining people who leave food waste in areas that have large pigeon populations. The view taken to the left food, albeit an attempt to feed the pigeons, is one of dropping litter.

Feral pigeons can be quite intimidating, swooping to and from high buildings and surrounding trees. Scavenging for food from an innocent walker is frequent and the high volume of unhygienic poop droppings is unsightly and carries the potential to spread disease.

Humane pigeon deterrent for ‘pigeon proofing’ include bird spikes, scarers and control nets.
