Pigeons have long been a part of the fabric of London, and while they might seem like harmless little creatures, they can actually create quite a few issues for homeowners, businesses, and locals. Cities like London are popular hangouts for pigeons because they're full of food and great nesting spots. With so many people, businesses, and waste around, these urban areas provide plenty of meals for our feathered friends. Plus, the buildings, bridges, and other structures make for excellent nesting and resting places.
The Problem with Pigeons in London
It's important to be aware that pigeons may carry diseases that can affect both humans and other animals, creating health concerns. Their droppings, while not pleasant to look at, can also damage buildings and structures or make pavements and walkways slippery. Additionally, pigeons might cause noise disruptions and even attract other unwelcome visitors like rodents and insects to a property.
Prevention as the Key to Pigeon Control
It is far more cost-effective and efficient to prevent a pigeon infestation than it is to deal with one after it has taken hold. By implementing preventative measures, property owners can reduce the risk of damage to their buildings and minimise the potential health risks associated with pigeon populations.
