Feral pigeons are vast in abundance and therefore can often become somewhat of a nuisance. They become a pest when they congregate in large numbers and make their homes on both residential and commercial rooftops. With the accumulation of droppings and nesting materials they can cause a lot to damage to rooftops, ventilation, machinery and buildings whilst at the same time causing risk to human health.
Pigeons are mainly blue-grey colour and have iridescent feathers on their necks and heads. The standard pigeon has a short neck and a small head with short legs. Pigeons will nest on flat areas high up from the ground usually on ledges of buildings, bridges and air-conditioning units.

Damage Caused by Pigeons
It is important to regulation pigeon populations due to the disease and damage pigeons can cause. Their faeces is highly acidic and corrosive which can cause damage to residential and commercial property. Debris from nesting pigeons can often cause blockages of gutters and drains which in turn can cause extensive damage to property.
The materials pigeons use for nesting can also cause machinery to fail particularly in air conditioning units, which tend to be one of the most common areas for pigeons to nest. Pigeon droppings can cause slip and trip liability issues on commercial and industrial premises.
Pigeons carry a number of bacteria both on their bodies and in their faeces that can cause a hazard to human health, these include encephalitis, salmonella, meningitis, histoplasmosis and many more.
