Bird & Pigeon Removal London
Are you experiencing pigeon problems and need to get rid of them?
All wild birds, their nests and eggs are protected by The Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981. However, there are a number of species recognised by Natural England as pest birds. These species can be controlled and removed by humane methods under general Licence.
Common Types of Nuisance Bird
While pigeons naturally feed on grains and seeds, they will adapt to urban environments by scavenging processed food. This includes eating from discarded takeaways and food waste found in dustbins.
If enough food is available, pigeons will breed the whole year round, with a peak between March and July.
Certain Species of Seagulls
Gulls will return to the same nesting site year after year. This makes it extremely difficult to deter once they have a favoured location.
Seagulls can live for up to 40 years, during which time they can continue to breed.
Signs of a Bird Problem
Below is a short list of tell-tale signs to help determine whether you have or are developing a bird problem. If you’re in doubt, please contact a member of our team to arrange a site assessment.
- Birds settling on roofs or ledges of your building
- Nesting materials strewn about your premises
- Debris from nests and feathers, which may block guttering and drainage systems, potentially leading to damp damage
- Continuous bird cries, especially from young chicks
- Damaged stock, from pecking and bird fouling
- Areas of concentrated droppings where birds roost
- Pigeons congregate in flocks of anywhere between 50 and 500, meaning a small problem could soon turn into a much larger problem
