Suspect you have Pigeons?

Pest-Tech offer pigeon control in Maidstone and across Kent, because pigeons are a nuisance and cause damage to your building, home or business.

There are many methods of controlling pigeons and bird proofing methods, every situation is different and may require a different solution dependent on the environment.

Pigeon proofing tends to be an effective preventative measure of pigeon pest control, and is a highly favourable option.

What You Need to Know About Pigeons

Pigeon Guano is Bad. Not only is it hazardous to health but it also contains acids that will burn into paint work and scar buildings and brick work if not removed very quickly.

Bird Guano is Dangerous. If you get a small amount of pigeon guano on the floor it becomes very slippery in wet weather which can be dangerous and a consideration for shop owners that have pigeons roosting on their shop sign.

The Down Side Of Pigeons

Pigeons can introduce insect infestations in their nests and roosting areas. This is fine when they are nesting in trees. However, when they have gained entry into a roof space without you knowing you may have a surprise infestation. They can introduce all manor of problems. This can be textile beetles, bird mites, fleas and flies. They can also spread diseases such as Salmonella and E-Coli making them a health hazard. 

Methods Of Pigeon Control

There are many methods of bird control available to us. They work as a deterrent to stop pigeons roosting and nesting where they are not wanted. Sometimes these methods can work in conjunction with each other. These includes physical and visual deterrents, audible devices and trained bird of prey

Pigeon Control

Pigeons usually adapt quickly to most static bird control devices because the birds adapt after exposure to false threats. Static owls and kite birds are a few to mention. Pigeons are cognitive learners so bird control methods that are most effective are by physically blocking the birds from gaining entry or actively modify behaviour by using a mild shock method.

We can provide effective pigeon control for all types of buildings and gardens using the most modern techniques and products available for both domestic and commercial customers. Physical bird deterrents include products such as bird netting systems and steel spike systems, wire systems, electrified track systems. We use the best methods to eradicate the pigeon based on their natural behaviour.

Pigeon Control Using Visual Deterrents

Birds will quickly become use to wind driven kites as the birds learn the devices are not alive. Normally, birds adapt within weeks of exposure to bird control devices that are not alive or a threat to them. Bird lasers are an effective method of controlling pigeons, but once again if over used the birds will become accustomed to them and can become ineffective.

Pigeon Control Using Noise

Audible bird deterrents are used widely in large areas although audible scares can easily become ineffective after a period of time. Therefore they may need to be used with other techniques. Sounds include predator and distress calls of a variety of birds to discourage pest birds from coming into an area. Audible bird scares are totally ineffective for nesting birds.
