LUSH cosmetics are being covered in poo as pigeons lay siege to the popular skin care company’s warehouse.

Photographs show boxes smeared with droppings, with some of the tubs of lotion themselves even splattered with excrement before being shipped across the country.

The birds have made their home in the roof of the Poole, Dorset distribution centre, for the past couple of months, with the problem only worsening as the pigeon population grows.

A source told The Sun: “It’s been happening for a couple of months and nothing has been done about it.

“All the shops are receiving products with pigeon droppings.

“We’ve got tubs of cream and scrubs that are just getting absolutely coated.”

In one disturbing pic, splatters of poop are seen on a tub of moisturiser.

And pallets of boxed products are seen covered in white and green poop from the pigeons above.

The source added: “Some of the poo is getting on the boxes but there’s definitely an aspect getting through.”

It is understood after demands from the staff, management agreed to organise extra cleaning of the floor.

Breathing dust or water droplets contaminated by bird droppings can lead to a number of diseases that include psittacosis, a flu-like illness.

Salmonella has also been named as a possible bacterial infection that can be present in bird droppings.

It’s important to wash your hands and clean any exposed skin before eating after cleaning up bird droppings.


Lush has been contacted for comment.

It comes after a cheeky bloke lured 300 birds to poo on the lawn of his neighbour.

If you’re having trouble cleaning bird poo off your car, here’s the best way to handle it.
