Bird control legalisation

Bird Control Legislation

Most of us like to see birds in their natural habitat, but it can be a very different matter when there are too many of them in the wrong place. Birds like pigeons, starlings, and gulls can become a nuisance if they’re allowed to congregate on business premises. However, there are legislative implications with any actions taken that affect bird species in the UK, governed by the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981).

All our methods for controlling nuisance birds at Lambeth Pest Control comply with the legislation set out in the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981) and are approved by the relevant Legislative Bodies:

  • Natural England

  • Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH)

  • Natural Resource Wales

  • Northern Ireland Department of the Environment
