I read the article on pigeon control with great interest as in the UK several large cities have had similar problems. Their approach has been different but has had a high success rate.
Their approach was quite unusual. They first built nesting sites or dovecotes for the pigeons and these proved very attractive to the birds.
The next move was the radical one. Every day, an employee would visit each site and remove any eggs. No eggs, no new pigeons. In a surprisingly short time, the numbers dropped dramatically and are well under control.
A few enquiries would provide the names of the cities involved and could be very helpful with the problem in Malta.
