Pigeons

How to spot pigeons

Pigeons, also known as Rock Doves, will lay one or two eggs which hatch within 18 days.

Pigeons are dependent on humans to provide them with food and nesting sites. They can block gutters and drains, cause stains on buildings and cause slip hazards where their droppings have landed.

Their nests and droppings can contain diseases that can be passed on to people.

Treat pigeons yourself

There are a number of items you can buy to prevent birds from landing on your property. These include:

  • netting
  • anti-perch spikes
  • sprung wires
  • ropes
