Pigeons Carry Diseases

Pigeon droppings are not only unsightly; their acid
content can eat into soft stone and cause long-term
damage to buildings. The nest droppings, and feathers
also block gutters and rainwater pipes causing water
damage.

Their droppings can lead to severe hazards on
pavements, especially for the elderly, and can carry
pathogenic organisms.

Pigeons can carry a number of potentially infectious
diseases such as salmonella, tuberculosis and
ornithosis (a mild form of psittacosis - pneumonia-like
symptoms).

They are also a source of allergens, which can cause
respiratory ailments like pigeon fancier's lung and
allergic skin reaction.

There is potential for these illnesses to be spread to
people through contact with pigeon droppings,
dandruff and feathers; pigeon parasites; or where dead
infected pigeons get into food or water sources.

 
Pigeons on ledge Pigeon's Life Cycle

The feral pigeon is capable of breeding throughout the
year and nests may be found in any month, however
the peak occurs between March and July. Usually, two
white eggs are laid on consecutive days. Incubation
lasts about 18 days with fledging taking place about 4
½ weeks later.
A new clutch can be laid when the first young are 20
days old. Therefore up to nine broods may be
produced per year by just one female pigeon.
