Auckland City Council Takapuna Service Centre

The Takapuna Service Centre offices had a major problem with pigeons nesting and messing up the 3rd level balcony-to the extent that they were unable to be used by staff and dust from the build up of dried out pigeon excrement risked entering the office space. We installed B-ST bird repellent paste and our own spring deterrents to the handrails and ledges with tangible success in both areas.

This has been a problem site for a long time and as with all well established Pigeon colonies it is hard to break their homing instincts when they have resided comfortably for so long. PJF have a property care programme in place for this complex and will continue to work with the council to further combat and overcome the bird problem.
