Thread: Town pigeons

  1. #1

    Town pigeons

    I am helping the local council to compile a report on the ways to control feral pigeons in the town. Air guns are an option but need to look at what other methods are available.
    i have come up with netting and pricking the eggs, better hygiene, ie clean up the rubbish etc.


    anybody able to give suggestions that might help, pros and cons etc? I will need info on feral pigeon diseases as some members of the public like them.

    ​any pointers greatly appreciated.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Feed them corn doped with whisky, then pick them up and knock em on the head. The ones you don't get will have nothing worse than a hangover!

    I might have all the locals going for that as well. Bet they wouldn't leave anything for the pigeons.

    Get onto Killgerm or Barrenttine environmental or network and ask for network Nigel's contact number or ask Kg or SE tech staff either way they between them will give you current up to date info on all that and all the new deterrents now available, legislation, hygeine, flyers etc

    Get it straight from the horses mouth so to speak, that way you'll have a good representation of the way forward in bird work rather than sieving through a load of old tosh.

    If you need contact numbers PM me and I will send some over to you

    Atb and good luck
