Birds, especially pigeons can pose a serious problem in towns and cities across the UK. Pigeons and some other species of birds are well-adapted to life in an urban environment. With the ready availability of food and shelter they can thrive but are often considered a pest, nuisance or at times a health hazard.
Pigeons generally prefer to nest on ledges and window sills on both commercial and residential properties. They scavenge for food, in some places they are fed by the public which encourages larger numbers. In some areas birds have attached people who have food. The noise and droppings created by large groups of birds can be disruptive and hazardous as well as causing damage to properties and cars. Birds can carry and spread diseases, so it’s vital that removal of the birds and their droppings is completed safely.
