Rokill’s specialist bird proofing team are regularly called upon to clean up after urban pest birds. Feral pigeons create an unbelievable amount of droppings, one pigeon can produce 12Kg of poo a year! The droppings are smelly, can cause slip hazards, permanently stain and attack surfaces. Insects can breed in the droppings, 22 insects species are closely associated with birds. 110 species of micro-organisms including bacteria and fungi with the potential to cause disease in humans can be found in bird droppings, including E.Coli, Campylobacter and Lysteria.
The photos illustrate the level of mess that feral pigeons can cause, our team treated the area with a bacteriacide prior to removing the fouling, the results are excellent – well done team.
