Pigeons have settled in and adapted to cities very well.
They live for about 6 years and feed mainly on seeds.
They are a protected species and it is forbidden to kill them.
Their droppings are one of the main sources of contamination in both professional and residential spaces.
They dirty the exterior surfaces of buildings and sidewalks with their droppings, which can corrode marble and metal surfaces.
Typically, they prefer to nest in south-facing balconies, in spots with objects (e.g. behind air-conditioning units) that provide them with protection, as well as in high apartment floors.
To remove them, special deterrent spikes are placed where pigeons usually sit and exclusion nets are installed in large areas and openings.
