How to get rid of pigeons is a website dedicated to the humane control of pigeons.

Getting rid of pigeons is important due to the damage and unsightliness that can be caused by pigeons and their droppings. Uric acid in pigeon faeces is highly corrosive and can cause damage to metals and other substrates it sits on for long periods. Debris from flocks of pigeons can often build up, blocking up gutters and drains which may cause flooding and roof damage.

Other reasons to get rid of pigeons include slip and fall liability from faeces. Pigeon droppings also contain many bacteria, fungal agents and ectoparasites which have the potential to cause diseases albeit only at very high concentrations.

You can find lots more helpful tips and advice on pigeon control on the Pigeon Control Resource Centre (PCRC) website.
