Pigeon droppings contain a number of different pathogens and once dry the resultant dust can lead to airborne transmission and potential infection. Those with compromised immune systems are most at risk.

Householders should avoid any direct contact with the faeces and use simple hygiene precautions after touching potentially contaminated materials. Removal of any faeces should be carried out by a professional.

We do not provide pest control services for pigeons. For concerns relating to health issues caused by contact with pigeon faeces please seek medical advice
