pigeon patrol bird spike and deterrentPigeon Patrol Products and Services have had to clean up many nasty jobs, but this job may take the cake.

A hatch on a Swedish church tower inadvertently left open for some three decades resulted in 2 tons of pigeon droppings amassing in the tower.

The church’s property manager says the layer of droppings was 30 centimetres (12 inches) deep when it was discovered during a May inspection of the Heliga Trefaldighets Kyrka in Gavle, 170 kilometres (105 miles) north of Stockholm.

Lennart Helzenius said on Thursday that church staff had been shocked by the sheer number of bags of excrement cleaners were removing from the tower. He says the droppings filled 80 bags in the first round of cleaning, and then just as many in the second round.

Helzenius says the hatch had probably been left open since the 1980s.

I guess that this church could have used some of Pigeon Patrol’s bird deterrents like their bird or pigeon spikes, bird netting, 4-S Gel, or the UltraSonic Tube or Screaming Owl.   Pigeon Patrol has warehouse in Vancouver Canada and Seattle Washington. Pigeon Patrol is the logical choice for bird or pigeon control in North America.
