Feral Pigeons are found in urban areas around the world and may also occur in rural situations, farms, gardens and outbuildings.  They typically nest on or within buildings, or other structures such as bridges and monuments.  Feral Pigeons breed all year round, they typically lay 2 eggs in each clutch and may have several broods per year, they feed on a wide variety of food waste but prefer cereals where available.

There are a number of problems with feral pigeons occupying your premises, these include danger from the fouling, in causing pavements and business entrances to become a slip hazard, plus the diseases the birds carry which can cause a health risk to personnel such as Psittacosis, Salmonella and E Coli, these can all be transferred onto your premises.  Fouling build up internally is extremely hazardous as the dust from the guano can cause respiratory diseases.

Feral Pigeons also carry bird mites, fleas and ticks, their nests will harbour these insects which can result in your premises being invaded by insect infestations.
