Why Get Rid of Pigeons?
Pigeons are generally a beautiful and enjoyable part of our environment. The purpose of pigeon control is not to destroy pigeons, but simply to prevent them from nesting or roosting in or on venues of business. Once they have found a favorite nesting or roosting place they will continue to return in droves. A large number of pigeons, if not properly controlled, will soon result in a large amount of droppings. Bird Droppings are messy and unsightly, can cause slippery walking conditions, and may also transmit potentially fatal diseases. It is also very expensive to clean up the mess that pigeons and other nuisance birds leave behind.
How do I begin a Pigeons Control program?
There are 3 basic steps to any bird control program. To successfully get rid of
pigeons, you should follow these steps:
- Evaluate the problem. Take note of as many details as you can, including flight patterns and time, entry and exit ways, feeding, nesting, and roosting habits. Try to determine why birds find your property attractive.
- Sanitation. Before installing or applying products for pigeon control, clean the area of all nests, garbage, droppings, and unsealed food. This helps to remove any incentives that pigeons or other birds may have to stay on your property and creates a solid foundation for control.
- Choose appropriate goose repellent products and solutions. There are many products to choose from for effective bird and pigeon control. Try to choose the most fitting solution for your specific problem, goals, and environment. Remember that a combination of methods is always more effective than using just one method alone.
