Due to the health issues a bird infestation can pose, it is essential that you get professional advice.
Pigeons can become a nuisance if they reside on or around your property.
Pigeons are increasing in numbers, especially in town centres, where they have adapted to their artificial cliffs of buildings and are becoming a pest with their droppings on buildings, pavements, cars, etc.
These are called feral pigeons, a descendant of the Wild Rock Dove. This bird has become semi-domesticated. The pigeon is the most serious pest associated with human habitation.
Pigeons rely on food scraps & you can find them in droves near cafes, restaurants, and other food outlets in busy town centres.
Some of the more common diseases and pathogens that birds can spread:
- Chlamydia psittaci (Ornithosis)
- Salmonella spp.
- Cryptococcus neoformans
- Escherichia coli
- Histoplasma capsulatum
- Campylobacter jejuni
- Allergenic particles (bird fancier’s lung)
- Listeria monocytogenes
- Vibrio Cholera
In 2019, two patients died in a Glasgow hospital who had contracted a cryptococcal fungal infection which was subsequently linked to pigeon droppings.
When dry, pigeon droppings can become airborne in small particles & can lead to respiratory complaints. Always wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when cleaning bird droppings.
Research suggests that up to 49% of feral pigeons could be infected with Chlamydia psittaci. Human infection is called ornithosis, and symptoms include chills, fever, sweating, severe weakness, headache, blurred vision, pneumonia, and possibly death.

Pigeon Control Services
Our pigeon control services aim to manage and prevent pigeon infestations in homes, businesses, and public spaces. Pigeons can become a nuisance and pose health risks due to their droppings and potential transmission of diseases. Emris Services offer a range of solutions, such as bird netting, spikes, and deterrents, to prevent pigeons from nesting and roosting in areas where they are unwanted.
These services may also include cleanup and sanitisation of affected areas to ensure a safe and hygienic environment. These services are an effective way to manage pigeon populations and prevent property damage and health hazards associated with pigeon infestations.
