Pigeons Pest Control

Wee Critters are here with Pigeon Pest Control and Pigeon Proofing to help remove and prevent pigeons from your business or home

Pigeons or other birds in the attic are a problem because of the mess and health risks of their droppings as well as the noise of cooing and flapping wings.

Birds should be removed and the entry points into your loft should be proofed using chicken wire or a solid barrier. It is also possible to proof the exterior of your building from pigeons and other birds using spikes, wire systems or netting.

To remove birds, it may be possible to scare them away, but bird removal is likely to require professional trapping or baiting.

Proofing Against Pigeons and Other Birds

Having a bird infestation problem on your building can pose a number of serious problems, both to the building itself and to your business, customers, employees and home.

Urban pest birds pose a considerable threat to human health due to the number of diseases and bacteria that are present in their droppings and nests.

There are 3 diseases known to be associated with bird guano (bird droppings): histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis and psittacosis – all can represent a risk to human health.

  • Histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis are fungal diseases that grow in the droppings and soil.
  • Psittacosis is a bacterial disease that spreads when guano dries and guano particles become airborne and are inhaled.

In substantial quantities bird guano’s acidic matter can even cause damage to the fabric of buildings which in turn, leads to higher cleaning and repair bills. Large quantities of guano will also be infested with blood-feeding insects.
