A typical trapping program consists of:

  • Two weeks for pre-baiting with the traps open
  • Four weeks for baiting with the traps closed

For the first two weeks we will leave the traps open and lay down bait so the pigeons can feed on the bait and go in and out of the traps. This is so they get used to the traps. On the third week we would close the traps and then bait them up. For reasons of animal cruelty, our technician must visit the traps every day in order to dispatch the birds.  Our technician will visit the premises Monday-Friday and leave the traps open over the weekend. This will continue for four weeks. We will keep a count of the numbers of pigeons we have caught and let you know how many have been culled.

The trapping program is not a complete solution on its own but if we trap enough pigeons this will obviously make a difference. It may be necessary to carry out the trapping program once a year to keep the numbers down, this would be a better approach as opposed to letting them breed and multiply.

We can if required carry out site inspections every year to monitor the number of pigeons on and around the building and let you know if a trapping program is required again.
