Pigeons are vermin and carry a variety of diseases and pigeon mess is a particular problem, especially in London.
The droppings are acidic so that they not only disfigure buildings but can actually attack and damage building materials such as stone and brickwork. Gutters and drain pipes may become blocked, leading to flooding and associated problems. Pavements, ladders and fire escapes may be made unsafe due to the hazard of slipping on droppings.
What We Can Do
Our surveyor will arrange a site visit, and asses the area both on and around your building. From there we will recommend a course of action to remove and prevent the threat of pigeons. This usually involves a combination of pigeon spikes and pigeon netting. We supply and install all of the equipment needed and we can offer expert advice to help reduce the ongoing threat.

Some Facts About Pigeons
Feral pigeons (Columba livia var) are found in association with human habitation in all our towns and cities. They are related to the Rock Dove which is now only found in remote cliffs and are a result of interbreeding between the Rock Dove and Racing Pigeons which have gone feral. This accounts for the variety of markings commonly found on feral pigeons.
They build their nests in or on buildings, particularly on ledges, under eaves and on girders under railway bridges.
