Did you know any animal can become a pest? It’s all about the size of the group they live in and how much of a problem they can cause.
For example 1 Feral Pigeon is unlikely to be classified as a pest, but a breeding pair of Pigeons can quickly increase in numbers, as they can lay up to 18 eggs a year and they breed all year long. Pigeons are also normally sexually mature at around 6 months old, allowing an unmanaged colony to increase from 2 to hundreds in no time at all.
When the numbers swell out of control is when the problems begin to occur. Buildings can be damaged and covered in bird droppings, crops can be contaminated or destroyed, your staff and the public’s safety could be put at risk and so much more…
Therefore it is important to control the numbers of Pest Birds like Herring Gulls, Lesser Black Back Gull, Black Headed Gull, Feral Pigeons, Wood Pigeons, Starlings, Parakeets, and in fact any large colony of birds before they become a problem.
