The "pigeon" is a bird of the Columbidae family that can be found all over the world. Initially wild and living on cliffs, it now lives mainly in the city, feeding on the waste that city life generates. Most pigeons live from five to ten years and produce five to seven broods of two or three eggs each year.
The "sparrow", like all other birds, is protected by a federal animal welfare law. It lives practically everywhere humans are present, and builds its nests near or on the “facades” and roofs.
Most of the nuisance comes from the presence of nests, generally in the casings of slatted blinds. This generates damage to blind mechanisms, window sills and facade insulation. In fact, sparrows sometimes pierce cavities in the insulation to nest. Sparrow nests are almost always infested with fleas.
It is forbidden to remove a bird's nest from May to August. Outside of this period, we can remove the nests built in the blind boxes, clean and disinfect the parts infested by fleas. Then, it will be necessary to obstruct access to the awning mechanism and install discreet protections.
The "swallow" is a migratory bird which comes to nest in Europe in spring and which leaves for Africa during winter periods. Like all birds, swallows are protected by a federal animal welfare law.
It is forbidden to touch a swallow's nest. We therefore suggest the installation of protection under the nests, in order to contain the droppings, which does not interfere with the nesting or the survival of the species. We can also set up artificial nests, where swallows can nest.
