Nuisance birds

Many people enjoy interacting with wildlife and feeding birds. However, sometimes overfeeding birds can result in them occurring in large numbers, which can be very problematic.

Large numbers of birds can result in a substantial amount of bird droppings, which are unsightly and their acid corrodes stonework and damages buildings. Droppings on pavements can become slippery when wet and pose a hazard to passing pedestrians. Droppings, nest material and dead birds can block guttering and drains and cause water damage to buildings.
