Bird control is a crucial aspect of maintaining a clean and safe environment, particularly in urban areas where flocks of birds can cause various problems. One effective method of bird control is shooting, which involves the controlled use of firearms to deter and eliminate bird populations. While shooting may initially seem drastic, it has proven highly effective in bird control.

What does Shooting involve?

In the context of bird control, it refers to the controlled and targeted use of firearms to deter and eliminate birds that pose a threat or nuisance to property, agriculture, or public health. Trained professionals use specialist equipment and follow strict guidelines to ensure safety and effectiveness. The primary objective of shooting is to manage bird populations and minimise their negative impact on human activities and the environment.

The benefits of shooting


Shooting is a highly effective method of bird control. It directly targets and eliminates problem bird species, such as feral pigeons, which are known to cause significant damage to buildings, crops, and public spaces. By reducing their numbers, shooting helps to mitigate the risks associated with bird infestations.


When dealing with bird-related issues, time is often of the essence. Shooting responds rapidly to bird problems, allowing quick intervention and resolution. Trained professionals can swiftly assess the situation, determine the appropriate action, and execute it efficiently. This ensures a prompt resolution without unnecessary delays.

Ideal to eliminate feral pigeons:

Feral pigeons are a common nuisance in urban areas, often causing building damage, spreading diseases, and leaving behind unsightly droppings. This method is particularly effective in controlling feral pigeon populations. By specifically targeting these birds, shooting helps to prevent further damage and maintains a cleaner and healthier environment.

Scares away other birds:

Shooting eliminates target bird species and acts as a deterrent for other birds. The sound of gunfire and the sight of birds falling can create a fear response among nearby birds, causing them to avoid the area. This preventive measure reduces the likelihood of future bird infestations and related problems.

When is shooting a suitable method of bird control?

Shooting is the last choice for bird control. It is recommended when:

  • Other non-lethal methods have proven ineffective or impractical.
  • There is a need for immediate intervention to prevent further damage or risks.
  • Feral pigeons or other problematic bird species have become a persistent issue.
  • Public health and safety are at risk due to bird-related concerns.
