What is the most common method of bird control?

Pigeon proofing with bird netting

The most widely used method of bird control in London is pigeon netting. Using durable plastic twine, bird netting creates an impenetrable barrier for pigeons. It can be installed on a variety of surfaces, including building fascias. We have extensive experience fitting bird and pigeon netting on residential and commercial properties in London.

Pigeon proofing with bird spikes

Pigeon spikes may be a good solution when pigeons are persistently perching on roofs and guttering. A polycarbonate base supports these heavy-duty metal prongs, making them able to be installed on rooftops, windowsills, gutters, and ledges. Spikes are very uncomfortable to perch on, but they're designed to deter pigeons rather than harm them.

Bird control inspections using drones

There are a lot of times when birds choose ledges, windowsills and other elements as resting and nesting spots. It is sometimes impossible to reach those spots from the ground level or the roof. As a result, the birds are left unbothered for long periods of time, which makes them stubborn to leave afterwards.

Consequently, bird guano and feathers are all over that side of the building. Such cases require us to use a unique method of bird control. Drones help us carry out the task quickly and effectively by allowing us to inspect the infested place first.

To ensure compliance with health and safety requirements, each project is surveyed on-site before work begins and assessed after.

Ways to keep pigeons and other birds away

  • Do not feed pigeons. If you have any fruit-bearing trees or shrubs around your property, collect the fruit from them as soon as possible;
  • Seal off potential nesting spots before pigeons settle in. Ensure that any openings big enough for pigeons can be sealed completely or covered with wire mesh;
  • Don't allow rainwater to accumulate, otherwise, pigeons and other urban birds will be attracted to it;

Important: avoid any contact with bird guano since it may carry bacterial and fungal infections!

  • Q: How harmful can pigeons be for my property?

    A: Pigeon droppings have acidic properties, which can cause significant (and visible) damage to your property's facade over time. Their feathers can also end up blocking the gutters, which can lead to water damage.

  • Q: Do pigeons spread diseases?

    A: Yes, their feces contain all kinds of pathogens, such as salmonella, ornithosis and even tuberculosis. They are also known to cause fungal infections, like histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis.

  • Q: What is the best way to keep pigeons away from my building?

    A: The general strategy is to make the roof of the building, as well as any other nesting areas, as uncomfortable for them as possible. Usually, this is achieved by installing spikes and wires to deny the avians any landing opportunities.

  • Q: What is the best way to remove pigeon droppings?

    A: There is a serious risk of contracting an infectious disease when dealing with bird feces. That is why you may want to resort to professional pigeon control services in London in order to safely sanitise the affected areas.

  • Q: How are pigeons sustained in an urban environment?

    A: Contrary to popular belief, hungry pigeon flocks cannot survive on scattered food scraps alone. Instead, they are encouraged to return to bigger cities by a small, but persistent group of individuals who have the habit of feeding them with high quality foods (corn, grain, etc.) on a regular basis. And as the pigeon flocks increase in size, so does the risk of an infestation.
