Signs of a Bird Infestation

Your property could be the ideal habitat for pest birds. Pigeons have learnt how to survive in most environments, scavenging our waste food and needing only the smallest amount of shelter to make their nests.

The longer birds are allowed to nest or roost in an unwanted area, the harder it will be to remove them. For example, pigeons are gregarious creatures living in flocks of anywhere between 50 and 500, so a small problem has the potential to turn into a large infestation.

Rentokil's professional bird deterrent services can provide effective and discreet solutions to your bird problems.

Common Bird Infestation Signs

Recognising the signs of a serious problem and getting an immediate solution can drastically reduce the risks associated with bird infestations. Signs to look for include:

  • Birds settling on roofs or ledges.
  • Bird noises - continuous bird cries, especially from young chicks.
  • Bird nests - nesting materials strewn about your premises.
  • Damaged stock - from pecking and bird fouling.
  • Droppings - concentrated in areas where birds roost.
  • Debris from nests and feathers - may block guttering and drainage systems, potentially leading to moisture damage or mosquito problems.


Where to look for bird problems: 

  • Pigeons use areas of tall buildings and flat roofs to nest.
  • Balconies, ledges, guttering and rafters are favourite areas for nesting.
  • Blackbirds tend to be attracted to homes where they can feed on scraps and small insects
  • Any gap larger than 25mm that allows access to your building is a potential entry point for pigeons.
  • Pigeons prefer roof spaces to roost in and can shift loose or damaged tiles to gain access.
