Pigeon control and Proofing

Pigeon Control & Removal

In the United Kingdom, pigeons are a common bird species that are found in both urban and rural areas. The most common species of pigeon in the UK is the feral pigeon, which is the descendant of domestic pigeons that were bred for racing and as a source of food.

Feral pigeons are now considered a nuisance in many areas, as they can cause damage to buildings and vehicles with their droppings and can transmit diseases to humans and other animals. In some cities, efforts have been made to control feral pigeon populations through measures such as culling, nest removal, and the installation of bird-proofing measures on buildings.

Pigeon Life cycle.

Pigeon Life cycle.

  1. Egg: The pigeon's life cycle begins as an egg. Pigeons usually lay two eggs at a time, and the eggs take about 17-19 days to hatch.

  2. Chick: When the egg hatches, a chick emerges. Pigeon chicks are born naked and blind and rely on their parents for food and warmth. They grow rapidly and are usually able to leave the nest within four to six weeks.

  3. Juvenile: After leaving the nest, the young pigeon enters the juvenile stage. Juvenile pigeons still have some growing to do and will continue to mature over the next few months. They learn important skills such as flying and foraging during this time.

  4. Adult: Once the pigeon reaches maturity, it enters the adult stage. Adult pigeons can mate and reproduce, and they typically have a lifespan of around 3-5 years in the wild. However, some domesticated pigeons can live much longer.

  5. Senescence: As the pigeon grows older, it enters the senescence stage. Pigeons in this stage may experience physical decline and may not be able to fly or forage as well as they once could. Eventually, the pigeon will die of old age or succumb to a predator or disease.

Pigeon Pest Control

Pigeon Pest Control.

Pigeons, also known as city or urban birds, can cause damage and carry diseases. Here are some examples:

  1. Damage to property: Pigeons can cause damage to buildings and structures by creating nests, leaving droppings, and pecking at surfaces. Their droppings can also corrode metals and cause damage to roofing materials.

  2. Health hazards: Pigeon droppings can contain harmful bacteria, fungi, and viruses that can cause disease in humans. Inhaling the dust from dried droppings can also lead to respiratory problems. Pigeon feathers and debris can trigger allergies and asthma.

  3. Transmission of diseases: Pigeons can carry and transmit diseases such as salmonellosis, E. coli, and cryptococcosis. They can also carry fleas, ticks, and mites, which can spread diseases to other animals and humans.
