Sometimes the extent of the pigeon problem is such that methods of humane bird control are required which includes trapping and shooting. This is needed to bring the problem under control if all else fails. It’s most effective however when used in combination with other preventive treatments such as netting and spiking. Shooting and trapping should only ever be used as a short-term solution to a potentially long-term problem.
Urban gulls are protected under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981. So culling can only be undertaken if there is a threat to public health and safety or to aircraft. But the seagull problem in London is huge with so many open spaces, sources of food and water and places to perch and breed. Therefore for these nuisance birds we use a combination of the treatments outlined above.
