Please do not encourage pigeons, they carry potentially infectious diseases, create mess, attract other pests and damage buildings/structures.


Pigeons can become more of a nuisance for those living in flats with open balconies.

To help prevent pigeons nesting and fouling on your balcony there are a few things you can do

  • Keep the balcony clean and free from rubbish
  • Remove bird feeders
  • Use the balcony regularly
  • Install a deterrent 
  • Remove empty nests

Should you require any support or guidance with regards to installing a deterrent please contact us on 0121 368 1166
