Pigeons

Please don't feed the pigeons! Please dispose of food waste thoughtfully and let pigeons feed the natural way.

  • Feeding pigeons attracts pests and may put human health at risk - food fed to pigeons can also attract rats and mice.
  • Feeding pigeons results in more damage to buildings - more pigeons simply means more pigeon mess.
  • Feeding pigeons makes the birds dependent on people - pigeons are wild birds and are capable of fending for themselves.
  • Feeding pigeons may deprive other birds of food - in the garden, smaller birds are frightened away when numbers of much larger pigeons arrive.

Our Pest Control Section can provide a comprehensive service in pigeon control and proofing. For further information or advice, details on charges, and for arranging treatment, please contact the Pest Control Section on 01382 436288.
