About pigeons: The feral pigeon is the number one urban pest bird. A single bird
can eat up to 6oz of food every day -
Females lay clutches of two eggs up to four times a year and a pigeon is capable of breeding at only five months old.
Keeping pigeons under control is a legal requirement for many businesses. Good pigeon control is important if you are to comply with The Food Safety (General Food Hygiene) Regulations 1995, The Food Safety Act 1990, The Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949, Health and Safety At Work Act 1974 and other legislation.
Why are they such a problem?
As well as being smelly, unsightly and slippery, pigeon droppings are very acidic and can cause irreparable damage to buildings, cars and lift machinery. The droppings can transmit 30 species of disease to man, including salmonella and meningitis, and 10 species of disease to domestic stock.
The droppings, feathers and nests provide a habitat for many species of flies, beetles and mites. Dead birds and chicks in lofts attract many carrion species of insects to the area that often migrate from there into domestic premises.
