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.

Benefits of Hawkeye’s Pigeon Control Service

Our professional pigeon removal service will leave your property free from pigeons. A mix of removal and deterrent methods will get rid of, and discourage pigeons as well as other birds from seeing your property as a place to perch and nest.

Using these methods, we will ensure that the issue is not only removed but will not return again in the future. These methods include:


  • Installing bird netting around the likely perching and nesting spots on your property like large rooftops
  • Placing of bird spikes on common places of which pigeons perch, such as window ledges and balconies.
  • Use of sprung bird wire systems. These wires prevent the pigeons from landing by technically bouncing them back off the property.
  • Hawking is a great prevention method for large areas such as construction sites. Pigeons see that the location is patrolled by a hawk and give the area a wide berth.
  • Electronic systems are also great as they mimic the sound of another bird in distress, keeping new birds to the area away.
  • Fire gel is a unique tool. To the human eye, they look like small white spots but to a bird, they look like a fire keeping them away from the areas it has been fitted.

All these methods do not cause the pigeons any distress or harm which is why they are an effective and humane process.

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.
Once our Hawkeye Bird Control specialists have thoroughly cleaned the area we will consider the best use of preventative treatments. The recommendations we take into consideration include the aesthetics of your building, its purpose, and the extent of the pest pigeon problem. So contact us today and let us help remove your pigeon infestation.

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!
