Birds can also be pests in some places, especially those with an open layout. Entry should be prevented, but if this isn't practical, try to remove 'perchable' surfaces and ensure foods are protected by a non-peckable cover. This is especially important for any foods displayed outside your store. Extra cleaning may be required if birds are able to defecate inside or on display surfaces.

Pigeons Causing A Nuisance

Wild birds are part of nature and do not come under the jurisdiction of the Council. The Council has no responsibility unless they are soiling Council buildings and property.

Pigeons that are not owned and cannot be built/netted out of their roosting position and are causing a real nuisance contact a pest control firm listed in the Yellow Pages that specialises in bird proofing or bird control.
