Resolving Established Bird Problems

Established Bird Problems in Urban Areas

Any bird problem that covers large areas of towns and cities will have to be approved by the council or a similar body responsible for the area as a whole. These area-wide pigeon control systems will not only need to deal with the protection of the properties but also with the source of the problem, including the removal of large-scale pigeon roosts that have grown in derelict buildings.

One humane method of reducing pigeon flock size while reducing problems for property owners is providing one or more designated pigeon control feeding areas, for example, a public park. Those who wish to feed pigeons can do so legitimately, as the food provided will draw pigeons away from their existing feeding and perching sites, thereby dramatically reducing problems for property owners.

If a dovecote or other artificial breeding facility is provided near the feeding area, the birds will be encouraged to move away from their urban roosting ledges. The pigeons will lay eggs in the dovecote, which are then removed and replaced with dummy eggs. This has the effect of reducing flock size while concentrating the problem in one area where the birds can be accommodated.

If an area-wide pigeon control plan is implemented, pigeon control deterrents, such as bird spikes, will need to be provided on the affected buildings. This will force pigeons away from their existing roosting and breeding sites and towards the new areas.
