Complete Pigeon Control: How To Get Rid Of Pigeons throughout High Wycombe
No matter where your property is and no matter its size, feral pigeons can be a major pest problem and here at All Aspects Pest Control we have become leaders in delivering high quality pigeon control services and post infestation cleaning, not only in towns like Reading but all over the Southeast of England.
The feral pigeon population is on the increase and consequently demand for nest sites is now at a premium, as the numbers rise so younger birds need to find a new roost and nesting site and this means that many people who were previously unaffected by the birds, suddenly find themselves with a pigeon problem.
Total pigeon control solutions in High Wycombe from a local company
These birds do not migrate and so they form a strong attachment to their birth site, having been partially domesticated, they are also unafraid of mankind and actually prefer to live alongside us for food and protection.
These two attributes combine with a nonstop breeding cycle to make a perfect storm of pest activity; once lodged on a building they will be extremely difficult to dislodge and with young birds present, many people are reluctant to take action themselves.
We have the solution to any pigeon problem in High Wycombe through the installation of bird netting that forms a solid, almost invisible barrier which keeps the birds out of their roosting and nesting areas. Over the last 19 years we have installed hundreds of nets on small balconies where the birds have been nesting to covering roof top air conditioning machinery where their fouling has turned the area into a toxic workplace.
The problem of having pigeons in High Wycombe
Feral pigeons have a bad reputation and deservedly so, often called flying rats these birds will scavenge for just about any food stuffs that they can get their beaks on. Where most species of birds have adapted into carrion, seed or fish eaters, the feral pigeon will eat just about anything that they come across and this adaption means that they can rear young birds throughout the year and not just when the season is right.
The problem with pigeons is that what goes in, must eventually come and out and these birds produce around a kilogram of droppings each month. The constant production of a semi-solid, high nutrient mass means that this matter is highly toxic and quickly becomes a safety issue whether on a domestic building or a commercial one.
An added issue with the bird poop is the high acid content and the way in which it quickly attacks whatever material it rests on. The main issues with having pigeons are:
• Pigeon guano blocking rainwater management systems
• The toxic nature of the guano and the sheer amount left behind
• Old nesting material adding to the rainwater blockages
• Dead birds fouling the area
• The corrosive nature of the bird’s discharge and the hidden but accumulating maintenance costs
• The negative impact of the mess left behind and the noise made by a flock of resident pigeons
