Exclusion: This is where bird spikes & netting is set up in order to stop birds roosting in and around roof areas. This can be a very costly to install and the installer needs to get it right, If there are any gaps the pigeons will find it.

Trapping: This is a program where the bird trap is set up with the one way doors held open. The birds are feed over a week and then the doors are reset. The pigeons being use to going in & out of the trap continue to do so but with the door now down they can’t get out. When other pigeons see their mates in the trap they think that maybe they are missing out on something and go in as well. A case of the stomach being bigger than the brain.  Not long after you can get a full trap off birds. The trap must be checked every day and this drives up the costs. Any non target birds are released. This method is very effective and will remove very large populations.

Shooting: Shooting may sound like the last resort but in many cases it can be highly effective and completed safely. Shooting is carried out using air rifles and is the cheapest option in removal of pigeons.With whole ares being cleaned out quickly.
