Feral pigeons have become a pest, fouling buildings, pavements, parklands, gardens, contaminating food stores and transmitting diseases.

How to reduce the number of feral pigeons

The only effective way to control pigeons and other pest species of birds is to remove food sources, roosting sites and breeding sites.

Secure empty buildings

Pigeon proofing of empty buildings is particularly important as any access points into such buildings allows the pigeons time to establish a large colony as they are left undisturbed for long periods of time and hence have nesting places as well as roosting sites.
