Other suggestions for deterring pigeons included using balloons, netting, CDs, a water pistol and spikes on fences.

Jazmin Castle said: “Balloons. Put a few around the garden especially planted areas and they won’t go near it.”

Stuart Egerton replied: “CDs tied to string attached to poles or fencing works against pigeons in the garden. The CDs reflective look scares pigeons from landing.”

Linda Kathleen McNally-Wilding commented: “My daughter made a mobile from old CDs because pigeons kept laying eggs in her hanging baskets. Two mobiles later and no pigeons.”
