Feral pigeons build their nests in or on buildings and other structures like fire escapes. Fouling of these structures is inevitable.
This is not only unsightly but may also have destructive effects from the feral pigeon droppings. Pavements, ladders and fire escapes may be made unsafe because of the real dangers posed by slippery bird excretion. Droppings also pose a significant hazard to pedestrians, particularly the elderly, as footpaths and stairways are made unsafe because of the potential for slipping on droppings.
Feral pigeons also carry diseases that are harmful to man. Significantly more than the brown rat and yet we wouldn’t think of feeding the rat. The best known disease passed from birds to man is Psittacosis but over 40 more diseases can be passed from the feral pigeon to humans. Anti-roosting bird spikes prevent pigeons from perching on your property without injury. Our pigeon spikes are simply glued onto any window, pipe or ledge where pigeons roost; the dense pattern of protruding pins make it impossible for pigeons to land, encouraging them to go elsewhere without hurting them. Pigeon spikes are virtually invisible once installed and provide the ultimate pigeon deterrent.
