Pigeon Control

Pigeon Control & Removal Experts In London

Feral pigeons are a recognised pest bird problem in built-up areas like cities, such as London, where food debris is in plentiful supply. They are renowned for overnight roosting and daytime perching. Pigeons have adapted well to the urban environment, feeding in territorial flocks of 50-400 individuals and their dependence on man for food has led them to become a serious pest. 

A London pigeon control expert will have a number of techniques up their sleeves to both remove, and deter, pigeons from your property.


Why Pigeons Can Be A Problem

During the day when perching pigeons move frequently to access food supplies, leaving their droppings over wide areas. They are very efficient at finding food sources, be it from food scraps, spillages or feeding by the general public. They require up to 50g of food per day and produce about 12kg of droppings per year.

Pigeons inhabit roof voids which are most commonly found in derelict buildings and industrial units. A slipped roof tile can be all that’s needed to gain access and they can breed and roost uninterrupted for many years by which time the cleanup process is extensive. Pigeon fouling on fire escapes is a major safety issue whilst fouling on the stonework of a building – window ledges, architectural features of interest and the walkways is unsightly.

Pigeons Can Be Hazardous To Health

Pigeons are associated health hazards. There fouling attracts insects and can cause salmonella. The inhalation of dust from dried pigeon droppings can also lead to respiratory problems. If there is an outbreak of avian flu the finger can be pointed at those responsible for maintaining a building but turning a blind eye to the pest pigeon problem.

Pigeon nest sites themselves are a serious source of human disease and is a harbour-age for a wide variety of insect infestations these include:

  • Martin Bugs
  • Bird Mites
  • Pigeon Fleas

How Our Pigeon Pest Control Will Help

Professional cleaning is crucial prior to any preventative treatments. If anti-perching products fail, it’s usually because the surfaces they were affixed to were not professionally cleaned before application or they were not applied by a professional.

Hawkeye Bird specialists will consider a range of preventative treatments including netting, electronic deterrents, Hawking, spikes and sprung bird wire systems. Our recommendations will take into consideration the aesthetics of your building and its purpose plus the extent of the pest pigeon problem.

We had pigeons all over our office building in central London. Hawkeye kept the pigeons away using a Hawk until the building work was finished. They have also installed a net over the roof. Great job, almost invisible and no more pigeons anywhere! Highly recommended thank you!
