PIGEON CONTROL / PIGEON REMOVAL

HERTFORDSHIRE & BEDFORDSHIRE

PIGEON CONTROL HERTFORDSHIRE

Pigeon Control Hertfordshire – We provide pigeon control throughout Hertfordshire to help rid you of pigeon problems. Pigeons can be a real nuisance around homes, in gardens and especially at commercial premises where they can flock in large numbers and leave guano (pigeon droppings). The best solution to dealing with a pigeon infestation is to prevent all access to areas where they can roost and there are a number of different methods and products that can be used to achieve this.

Products available including netting to act as a barrier to keep pigeons from landing on ledges etc, spikes to prevent pigeons landing on ledges, signs and other areas as well as waterproof gel which repels pigeons and stops them from landing.

We will talk through the various options available and decide on the best products and treatments for the specific areas where you have a problem. If you have a pigeon problem, get in touch today to book an appointment.

PEST PROOFING

WE OFFER A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT PEST PROOFING MEASURES FOR THE HOME AND WORK-PLACE THAT CAN PREVENT OR REDUCE THE CHANCE OF RE-INFESTATION. THE NUMBER OF PROOFING MEASURES AVAILABLE AND THE TYPE DEPENDS ON THE PEST, ASK US ABOUT THE AVAILABLE PROOFING MEASURES WHEN YOU CALL.

PIGEON FACTS

  • COMMON SPECIES

    The bird we associate with town centres and urban areas is the Feral Pigeon (Columba livia) which is commonly found throughout Hertfordshire and the rest of the UK. The typical Feral Pigeon is around 31 to 34 cm in length, with a wing span of around 63-70 cm. Feral Pigeons are predominantly grey, with a little colour on their neck that may appear pink and green in certain lighting.

  • DIET

    The Feral Pigeon feeds on seeds, meats, vegetables and other types of food dropped and discarded by humans, particularly in urban areas. We have all noticed pigeons in town centres and other populated areas, watching flocks of pigeons fly down to feed on dropped chips and other fast food types that are regularly dropped, before flying back to their roosting site.

  • HABITAT

    The favourite roosting place for Feral Pigeons is abandoned buildings, pigeons are a community flocking bird and will nest in groups and share buildings. In particular, they are fond of roof spaces and will utilise gutters, chimneys and external ledges. The roosting places will usually be placed to take advantage of food dropped by humans in populated areas.

  • BEHAVIOUR

    Pigeons live in flocks ranging from anywhere between 50 and 500 pigeons and Pigeons can breed throughout the year. In the spring time, Feral Pigeons can be seen eating grass seeds in parks, gardens and other areas. Food is abundant in urban areas, where they will congregate in large numbers and usually thick flocks of them feed on the food humans discard. Due to the large numbers these birds can flock in, it’s understandable that one of the big concerns is the scale of the mess they leave behind from their droppings.

  • ACTIVITY

    If Feral Pigeons have access to an ample food supply they can breed throughout the year, however the peak breeding season is normally between March and July.
