Dundee City Council wants to see pigeon numbers reduced to a lower, more realistic level that is not dependent on food from people, and in this respect it is important that the public do not feed feral pigeons.
It is also important that property owners take action if birds are causing a nuisance from droppings. Dundee City Council provides an effective pest control service to the community where nuisance birds are concerned.
The general public can help by disposing of unwanted food and food containers responsibly and not feeding the pigeons. Businesses can help by disposing of their leftover food carefully. The Council will play its part by ensuring litter bins are regularly emptied and refuse is collected promptly.
