Bird proofing
Bird proofing in large areas by fixing bird netting to the front of the building, which is tensioned. The mesh may come in different colours to suit the building materials. Zips may be placed in the netting if required to allow access for maintenance.

The first method of control is by use of barrier systems such as netting or spikes. However, shooting requires an individual licence for pest controllers. To shoot pest birds is mainly inside factories or buildings where pigeons are roosting and nesting, for example on ledges, girders or windowsills.

Any shooting takes place after dark when the pigeons are roosting and reluctant to fly out of the building. Every shot must meet an ethical code of conduct and limit suffering. After an area gets cleared, the access into the building needs to be proofed to stop further infestation.

The trapping of pigeons generally takes place on top of buildings or in areas pigeons feed regularly. The food source areas will require all food sources eliminating. The cage traps are then placed down and baited for several days with the doors left open.

Once the birds get used to going into the traps to feed the doors are set so that the pigeon can enter traps but not access back through the opening. Water, as well as food, needs to be placed in the trap. Regular visits to the traps need to be carried out every 12-24 hours to remove trapped pigeons.

Trapping may carry on for several days then a period left with the traps not set before re-trapping begins. On problem sites, a 12-month contract may be required to maintain control. Non-target birds caught in the traps can be released unharmed. Large amounts of pigeons may be trapped using this method.
