Having seen fields stripped bare then do really well after pigeon damage I am only being half arsed in my pigeon control this year, especially with the thoughts they may be eating any larvae.I know someone locally that’s involved with trials to help prevent the larvae in the stems.
so one field has been topped and another grazed tight with sheep.
I agree.If we don’t control pigeons here we get half the yield. Last year on badly pigeon grazed areas on fields near woods never started growing again in the spring.
we account £50/ha for pigeon control.
