Pigeon Lice

Pigeons can carry a range of different diseases. They can also have parasites and other pests present on their wings and abdomen. There are two types of lice that most commonly infest pigeons. Body lice live on the abdomens of the birds, where they feast on downy, insulating feathers. Wing lice dine on the same fluffy feathers but spend most of their time on the wings or tail, where they hide in between barbs on the birds large flight feathers. If you have a pigeon infestation, that means you are at risk of catching one of their diseases or getting a parasite like lice infestation from the pigeon.
