We are specialist pigeon removal experts
Our services cover pigeon removal in Huddersfield and all surrounding areas.
The pigeon is the most serious bird pest associated with human habitations. They’re approximately 31 to 34cm long and usually a blue-grey colour, with two black bars across the wing and a purple-green gloss on the neck and upper breast. However, there can be many variations in colour.
Their natural diet is grains and seeds, but they’ve adapted well to city life and often rely on scraps left by the public.
The problems they cause:
Pigeons can be a serious nuisance. They’re capable of transmitting diseases, contaminating your food and damaging your buildings. When many gather together, they can be very noisy too.
Pigeons foul their roosting areas heavily. This is not only unsightly, smelly and may cause people to slip, it can also be destructive.
The acidic droppings erode stone and paintwork. Gutters and downpipes can become blocked, causing flooding. Large amounts of droppings can cause severe damage to, or even kill, trees. It’s particularly important to keep your external fire escapes free from pigeon foul so they can be used without risk of slipping.
Pigeon removal – How we treat them:
Anti-perch spikes protect against pigeons perching and roosting. These low-cost spikes are around 112mm long with blunted tips. They’re approved by the RSPB and are a humane way to control pigeons and other bird pests; they won’t hurt the birds, just prevent them from roosting there. We can attach them to your rooftops, fences, cameras, window ledges and anywhere else where you want to prevent birds landing.
- Before beginning any work, we’ll do a full survey and risk assessment to determine the best approach.
- All our technicians are trained by the NPTA (National Pest Technicians’ Association), the BPCA (British Pest Control Association) and the RSPH (Royal Society for Public Health).
- You’ll get a guarantee so, if the pests return within the guarantee period, we’ll re-treat the problem.
