pigeon case study

Lee Branson of LB Contracts and the site manager of Woodley’s Yard in Higham Ferrers, Northants, called our offices to enquire about our Clearing Up After Pigeon Activity service. He had been recommended by a longstanding client of ours who had been very happy with our range of services over the years.

During the Coved 19 “lockdown” of April/May 2020, a longstanding commercial client of ours decided to take advantage of the enforced break and have a long overdue clear out and clean up of their Rushden premises and pigeon problem. Good plan. It all went well and because the business had been forced to shut and some staff were still available and keen to work, the Big Clean only took a couple of weeks.
