Pigeon

Feral pigeons foul buildings, creating unwanted 'stained glass' windows and 'decorated' architecture. All sorts of pests may migrate from their nest into buildings. Originally descended from the wild Rock Dove a cliff-face dweller, these birds find the next best thing a block of flats, a bit of Victoria Gothic Architecture or a railway arch. In the absence of natural predators, birds will fall sick survive to infect healthy ones with omithosis and other diseases, some of which can be transmissible to man. Their accumulated droppings are also sources of disease.

Remedy

Large nets, taut wires or blunt spikes can be put on buildings to keep them off. Alternatively, stupefying materials may be used by contractors, under license or cage traps to be set to catch pest birds, which are then humanely destroyed. The use of air guns is also permitted but only in certain areas.
