Pigeons are the most common bird species throughout our towns and cities, however, unbeknownst to many this nuisance bird can actually cause major damage to residential and commercial properties.
Pigeon fouling can cause an unsightly mess on premises of all sizes and these droppings harbor other infestations further extending your pest problem. These secondary infestations pose a serious health risk and if left untreated bacteria and fungus can result in respiratory and intestinal problems as well as the spreading of diseases such as Escherichia Coli (commonly referred to as E coli) and Salmonella.
In addition to this, pigeons have been known to attack people during the breeding season, which runs from March to September, in a bid to protect their young.
