Pigeons: "Flying Rodents"

Pigeons are also known as doves or street pigeons and are descents of the wild rock doves. However, as they can spread diseases such as aspergillosis, cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, listeriosis, psittacosis and salmonella, people started naming them as "flying rodents" due to public health concern. They are also known to cause property damage from their roosting habits and acidic droppings.


There are over 40 known viruses and 60 transmittable diseases that are directly attributable to birds and their fecal matter. Also, birds carry up to 10 parasites on their legs, wings and bodies, and these usually co-exist in bird nests that are active. Parasites such as mites can find their ways into house and cause skin irritation and infection. Their dropping are highly acidic and can cause structural damage by corroding paint works and steel.


Frustrated and annoyed by bird infestations, our government licensed bird management specialists adopt an integrated approach for effective & humane bird control services. Be it pigeons, sparrows, crows or other bird species, we have the know-how to handle it all.


Our comprehensive bird management services consist of:

  • Bird proofing-  making your property less attractive to birds and denying them access. Common methods include bird spikes, bird netting, bird wire, and bird repellents..

  • Bird trapping- non-lethal and humane approach to managing bird pests and often to complement other bird control methods. 

  • Nests and carcass removal- prevent spread of diseases caused by bird dropping and carcasses to protect the health of your loved ones. 

  • Facade cleaning- besides unsightly stains and damage, bird droppings are also acidic and cause damage to building materials. Effective methods include pressure washing, chemical cleaning and steam cleaning. 


  • Bird droppings on walls & floor.

  • Dropped feathers.

  • Bird nests.

  • Damage to property.

  • Body Itch due to mites.


  • Check around the premise to see if there are bird feeders.

  • Ensure that waste bins are closed tightly to deny food source.

  • Clean and vacuum frequently during mites infestation.
