Pigeons and starlings may be cute to look at while in flight.
However, these birds carry infectious diseases and are known for spreading germs.
In Yorkshire, there are thousands of pigeons that have made government, residential and commercial buildings their homes.
Pigeons and starlings love to build nests in high areas -which allow them to breed and procreate at alarming rates.
While they do not possess an attack-based threat like rats and mice, these pets need to be contained or infestation will occur.
At Avon Pest Control, we offer the best techniques and solutions to deal with pigeon or starling infestation problems.
In Yorkshire, pigeons are called rats with wings - due to the many infectious diseases they carry.
This includes 'Chiamdiosis', a virus similar to influenza, and 'Psittacosis', similar to pneumonia.
Believe it or not, pigeons can spread these diseases with their droppings and feathers - but especially by congregating in large numbers.
According to recent statistics, the pigeon problem in the UK is an incredible mess to say the least.
In fact, it costs up to £15 million to clean up pigeon droppings and deposits across the nation.
With this in mind, Avon Pest Control offers the following techniques to rid any residential, business or even city government property of pigeons and starlings:
• Large nets that trap pigeons - and their young - for immediate and safe removal. These birds are handed over to local animal control shelters.
• Blocking off entrance - exit routes that pigeons love to fly in and out of.
• Using pesticides - which may be harsh - but necessary in removing entire pigeon and starling colonies. However, we do our best to salvage and protect all birds and their young during the process.
• Immediate removal of pigeons from attics, home shingles, rafters, basements, and crawlspaces. We temporarily open up exit routes so they can fly away.
• In the case of mass pigeon infestation - which can attract other dangerous birds of prey - we utilize pesticides and bait traps to remove these birds from your home or office buildings.
