Pigeons are a very intelligent and complex pest. Whether it’s a feral pigeon leaving a mess wherever it goes or a wood pigeon destroying your crop we are equipped to deal with it. They have a lifespan of between 3 and 5 years. Contrary to popular belief pigeon faeces doesn’t pose too much of a health risk. It is only a risk to those with preexisting breathing difficulties in large, dry quantities where the dust from the guano can irritate the respiratory system. This however, doesn’t make it pleasant. It can still be a slip hazard and it’s never good when it lands on your freshly cleaned cars/buses/trains etc.
