Damage Caused by Pigeons

Pigeons cause extensive damage to properties in various ways, which is why it’s vital to get the infestation under control as soon as possible.

Structural Damage

Pigeons roosting on window sills, fire escapes and other overhanging ledges can cause damage over time due to their weight. However, the most destructive issue is their droppings. Pigeon droppings, or guano, are highly acidic and can cause structural damage to your home over time. Pigeons will often perch in the same place every day, whether it be on your roof or a window ledge, and in doing so, they will regularly defecate in the same place too. Over time, the guano builds up and can actually eat away at metals, paintwork, plastics and even bricks resulting in extensive damage to the structure of your property that will require costly repairs.


As well as its acidity, pigeon guano is known to contain a wide range of bacteria that can become airborne when guano is left for a long period. If inhaled, they can lead to severe health complications. Diseases including Psittacosis, Histoplasmosis, Salmonellosis, and Cryptococcosis can develop into potentially life-threatening illnesses that require immediate medical attention. Young children and the elderly are particularly at risk, but these diseases can be contracted by anyone in close range – including pets and local wildlife. Bird droppings can be highly toxic, so using a professional bird dropping removal service like ours is crucial to your safety.

Slip Hazard

Bird droppings can become incredibly slippery, particularly in the rain. When pigeons and other pest birds defecate from your window ledges and rooftop, they can create a slip hazard on the ground below. Cleaning bird droppings can be hazardous, so the best solution is to prevent pigeons from roosting on your property and causing issues in the first place.

Blocked Gutters

As pigeons make a home on your roof, they may decide to make a nest and lay eggs there because they feel safe. As pigeons build their nests, they often drop their nesting materials. Unfortunately, this regularly leads to blocked gutters as twigs, sticks, and a wide range of other materials begin to build up along your roofline. Blocked gutters then lead to further issues around your home, including leaks and even damp.

Pigeons can cause serious damage to your property and pose a major health risk, which is why it’s vital to contact us, your local bird control experts, as soon as you first notice signs of a pigeon problem.

Pigeon Control Methods

Pigeons have evolved into clever birds that aren’t deterred easily and quickly learn new ways to access a property where they can be safe. That’s why we offer a range of bird control methods, so there’s always something to suit everyone. To effectively control a pigeon infestation and prevent their return, these solutions may be used in conjunction with one another for maximum efficiency. Take a look at some of the main pigeon control services we offer in Maidstone below:

Pigeon Netting

Typically used for large spaces or to keep pigeons off balconies, bird netting is an extremely effective way of controlling a pigeon infestation and keeping them off buildings. Pigeon netting works by creating a physical barrier between the pigeons and the affected area, meaning access is completely denied. We use the highest quality bird netting designed to last through the elements and protect your property from pigeons for good.

Pigeon Mesh

Pigeon mesh works similarly to netting and creates a barrier between the problem pests and the target area. However, bird mesh is more suitable for smaller locations; for example, we use pigeon mesh when we carry out bird proofing solar panels jobs. You can be confident that the equipment we use is long-lasting and of the highest quality available to help keep your homes protected from pigeons for years to come. If you have solar panels and want to protect them from pigeons, check out our guide: How Much Does it Cost to Pigeon Proof Solar Panels?

Pigeon Spikes

Despite their rather dangerous appearance, bird spikes do not cause harm to pigeons or other birds. Instead, they obstruct access to the desired areas, as pigeons are intelligent creatures and will recognise the obstacle and perch somewhere else. The sleek design and effectiveness of bird spikes make them a popular bird control choice for most homeowners suffering from a pigeon problem.

Other Ways To Deter Pigeons

As well as these options, we also use other bird proofing methods to prevent birds from accessing your property, including bird wires, electrified tracks, visual deterrents, audible deterrents, and even falconry. The best solution for your pigeon problem will be decided upon during your site survey, as our pest control solutions are always tailored to each specific situation. All of our pigeon removal solutions are humane and guaranteed to deter pigeons and stop them from landing on your building, so you can rest assured your pigeon proofing will be a success when you work with Pest-Tech.

Commercial Pigeon Control Services

Pigeons might seem like a mere nuisance, but they can potentially be a major issue for your business’s reputation. Bird droppings can be incredibly unsightly and might make potential customers think your company is unhygienic. Also, because they pose a risk to human health, businesses in high-risk industries such as food, healthcare and hospitality need to be particularly vigilant if they discover a bird problem.

Alongside the risk to humans and your reputation, pigeons nesting on your commercial property can also cause extensive structural damage that will require costly repairs and downtime in your day-to-day activities. This can strongly affect your profits and limit your business’s ability to provide professional services to its customers.
