Characteristics of the pest:

Palomas:

La common pigeon (Columba livia) is usually the species most adapted to the city and the one that generates more problems due to their habits of nesting in human constructions and their public health risksbeing vectors disease mechanics.

Is a granivorous birdHowever in the city they are omnivorous.

The human presence does not cause them concern and they have adapted without problems to that coexistence.

In the city they have no predators (except seagulls) And they had a good reproductive rhythm, laying two eggs in each laying (2-3 layings / year).

Buildings are their preferred places for breeding and nesting, forming stable couples, until the death of one of the members.

Despite being good fliers, in settled communities in urban settings, they show sedentary habits and are very territorial.

The pigeons they are vectors of numerous human pathogens:
Allergies
-Water and food contamination
-Risks for aviation
-Damage to cultural heritage
, dirt from the droppings, chemical reactions of urine with the stone that dissolves it
Dirt from awnings, facades and buildings.
Flea transmission.

  • Allergies

    They cause numerous allergies in a considerable percentage of the population

  • feature number two of the urban plague
    Food and water contamination

    Due to their high power to transmit diseases, they greatly increase the possibility of contamination of these elements if they come into direct contact with them or if their faeces end up in them.

  • characteristic number three of the urban plague
    Risks for aviation

    They are a clear threat to pilots, as they can cause problems if they collide with an aircraft in flight. In the case of pigeons, the problem is greater for manned aircraft than for UAS, since they do not have a tendency to attack by drones. In the case of seagulls, they constitute one of the greatest threats, given their tendency to attack, especially during the breeding season; they are very territorial.

  • feature number four of the urban plague
    Damage to infrastructure and cultural heritage

    They damage the infrastructures, due to the weight of the nests, to the dirt of their excrement, to the chemical reactions that the urine produces in the stone. Without forgetting the damages produced in awnings and other types of structures.

Pest management Gaviotas

Seagull pest management is emerging as one of the essential services in urban areas. The expansion of the species has caused damage to occur throughout the city, due to the behavior of these animals and their antisocial and territorial way of living.

The female lays three eggs and they breed during the months of April to June. They are also stable relationships, and are paired for life, although they do not stay together all year. AND they are very long-lived, reaching 20 years.

Urban pigeons and seagulls they are vectors of numerous pathogens, potentials for the human being: -Allergies -Water and food contamination -Aviation risks -Damage to cultural heritage by the weight of the nests, dirt from the droppings, chemical reactions of urine with the stone that dissolves it -Dirt from awnings, facades and buildingsFlea and disease transmitterDangerous for their great aggressiveness.
