Pigeons  are  a  common  nuisance  in  the  UK,  and  are  a  problem  that  is  often  ignored  because  we  don’t  

know  how  to  deal  with  them.  Your  property  could  be  susceptible  to  a  whole  host  of  issues  if  you  don’t  

exterminate  these  pests.

Pigeons  don't  have  many  serious  predators,  which  results  in  them  breeding  in  vast  numbers

pigeon  feathers  may  cause  respiratory  issues.  

Pigeons  are  known  to  carry  mites.  These  can  lead  to  skin  disease  in  humans,  while  dust  from

External  damage  -­‐  Pigeons  cause  external  damage,  staining  brickwork  and  making  buildings  look

Both  commercial  and  private  properties  can  be  affected  by  pigeons,  especially  in  urban  areas.    

 

 

 

Deterring  &  Preventing  Pigeons
