Pigeons

Pigeons are found to some extent in nearly all urban areas. The feral pigeons also known as the city, street pigeon is the domestic pigeon which was originally bred from the wild Rock Dove. Feral pigeons are Dark bluish-grey head, neck and chest with glossy greenish and reddish-purple iridescence around the neck and wing feathers but colour does vary.

Problems that can occur

Pigeons carry variety of diseases such as ornithosis, listeria and Ecoli that can be transmitted to man not only by the droppings but also the birds themselves. Pigeon droppings are acidic and can corrode/erode metals, stonework and brickwork. This can lead to Buildings covered in fouling looks unpleasant, can smell, and projects a poor image of a business, potentially ruining an organisation’s reputation. If customers spot evidence of a heavy Pigeon infestation on a premises, they may not want to do business with you.
