Pigeons are well known as pests in urban areas – and with good reason. They often make themselves at home in urban buildings and can make a mess by dropping faeces. This isn’t just unsightly, it is actually a health risk. Pigeon faeces contains bacteria which is linked with a range of diseases, including encephalitis, salmonella, meningitis and toxoplasmosis. The droppings can also cause serious damage to residential and commercial buildings as it contains highly corrosive uric acid.
