Try a length of round plastic conduit and apples or potatoes of the same bore 20mm. Think potato gun , and blow like feck. It will twat them a good un . Used it on seagulls a 4 am , they got the message.

Driving back, I will admit to feeling slightly sad and apprehensive for the creature.

5 minutes after arriving back, so did the Pigeon demanding it’s lunch! :o :roll:


Arr! That be a homing pigeon. Ee homed in on yer home see? lOl


Just keep it fed (the minimum) and watered, and he’ll probably get bored after a rest then fly on to his real home just like the one we found some years back! ;)

Got one of those with moving head, absolutely useless they sit next to it and coo at each other, I've also got a plastic eagle on strings from another tree to simulate flying they take no notice of that either, someone recommend old CDs hung on strings may work,
I may have to get out the.177 when the management isn't looking :twisted:

They tried a similar method in our city centre, tis hilarious to see a pigeon sitting on top of one lOl
Apparently they do not like strong spices, so sprinkling down some curry powder may work...unless they have moved in from Bradford or Leicester and have a natural resistance

I am in the same position and my current wife hates them, however I quite like them and find their cooing restful, I don`t mind cleaning their shit off the decking....I think it is a state of mind thing, learn to like them perhaps, saves all that angst.

Being A Scottish scouser , then a gallon of petrol and a match will probably do the trick and get rid of the pigeons and trees lOl

Hold a referendum to decide 'democratically' whether the pigeons should leave or stay.
Repeat until you get the answer you want.
