Fast, efficient removal of nuisance birds from your property across Hillingdon Borough & The Surrounding Areas
FAST, EFFECTIVE and HUMANE BIRD CONTROL
Based in Hillingdon, we are a mobile pest control business working across Hillingdon borough, South Bucks district, Three Rivers district and the surrounding areas.
For fast and efficient removal of pigeons and other birds from your home or business premises. We can also help prevent further problems.
Bird Control Methods
Our approach to bird control and pigeon control is systematic. Firstly we survey the extent of the bird control problem, which guides us to the most effective method of action.
Choosing the correct system of bird management will eradicate the chance of embarrassing and expensive failures. Each system is only effective against certain species of bird and offer different solutions to withstand the pressure that the bird will exert in trying to get back onto the proofed areas.
Bird mesh, bird netting, bird spikes and bird wire are used to prevent the birds from roosting, without harming the birds.
We use all sizes of nets that are discreet, taut wires or blunt spikes which can be put on buildings to keep them off. Alternatively, stupefying materials may be used or cage traps can be set to catch pest birds, which are then humanely destroyed.
This video shows a property we were called to in the South Bucks District, where the spiking installed by another company had failed, allowing pigeons to roost and defecate directly above the staff entrance of the building. This is what can happen when bird proofing is not carried out or installed correctly.
Bird Fouling Removal
We are specialists in bird fouling removal and facade cleaning. At best unsightly, unhygienic and annoying, bird fouling can also be hazardous and needs to be dealt with by properly trained and qualified pest control operatives.
Birds can be a huge problem when they find their way into a building looking for food, or simply looking to roost and be sheltered. This can cause an undesirable effect visually and in terms of health. Droppings are not only unsightly; they can cause long term damage. Fresh droppings, whilst unpleasant, pose no risk to health. It is dried droppings that can potentially spread infection.
Spores from the droppings can be inhaled as dust and carried on the wind. They can cause flu like illness in healthy people, but pose more serious problems to those with low immunity.
Check out the video below, to a job we were called too in the South Bucks District where the previously installed spiking installed by another company had failed and was allowing the pigeons to roost and defecate directly above the staff entrance of the building. This is what can happen when bird proofing is not carried out or installed correctly.

Feral Pigeons (Columba Livia)
Pigeons are descendants of the Rock Dove. They are comfortable living in an urban environment. They tend to scavenge for food, often in substantial numbers where a good food supply is readily available – hence the need for pigeon controls.
If the conditions are right pigeons are able to breed all year round. They carry and can mechanically transfer to humans diseases such as salmonella. Pigeons have also been known to carry diseases such as Chiamdiosis, a virus similar to influenza, and Psittacosis, similar to pneumonia.
Wherever pigeons establish themselves they accumulate droppings and nesting materials.
Pigeon fouling makes buildings look dirty and shabby, and causes corrosion of mortar and masonry. In wet weather especially, droppings make pavements dangerously slippy, which can cause injuries to staff, customers and the general public.
The presence of pigeons poses a very real threat to the people living or working in an area. Pigeons not only introduce a variety of flies, textile pests and parasites, which cause damage and distress, they can also carry bacteria and viruses, which can be transmitted to humans.
The three most common methods of bird control for pigeons are anti-perching systems. These include netting, the spring and wire system and spikes.
A programme of bird proofing or pigeon proofing work can significantly reduce the high cost of cleaning and redecoration minimising the health and safety risk for you and your customers.
