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.
Why Pigeons Can Be A Problem
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.
