Pigeon Removal: Resolve Your Nuisance Pigeon Problem

Do you notice pigeons around your home or place of business? Does the number of pigeons seem to be growing each time you see them? If so, it’s time to consider pigeon removal strategiesbefore pigeons become a nuisance to you, your family, visitors, and the public. It happens quite often that flocks find a new home on rooftops, windows ledges, and any other place that resembles a real cliff side. They’ll nest and find shelter in these areas in cities because food and war hometer are easy to find. Once this happens, more and more pigeons follow resulting in a large population of pigeons settling near you or business. The key is to avoid large flocks of pigeons because they’ll become a nuisance.

Ways to Solve a Pigeon Problem

If you notice a large flock of pigeons around your residence, implement one or more techniques to resolve the problem.

Don’t feed the pigeons.

The initial step is to stop feeding the pigeons. Sometimes bird lovers offer a few bites of food without realizing the long-term effect of doing so. If you feed the pigeons, they will come and they will gather in larger quantities each time.

Even if you’re not feeding the birds on purpose, if you leave food, crumbs, or food wrappers behind, you’re leaving an open invitation for pigeons to take full advantage of the food source. That’s why you see pigeons hanging around parks and high traffic areas. It’s due to the great food source. If this pigeon removal tactic does not work, move on to the next step below.

Prevent the ability to nest or roost.

Pigeons love flat surfaces to roost and nest. These places make for easier areas to land. It’s the perfect spot. What you’ll need to do is create a barrier so that the birds cannot access and easily land on your roof, window ledge, etc. Here’s what you can do:

  • Use bird netting or bird wiring: netting and wiring keep pigeons away from large areas, railings, ledges, awnings, and other great landing or roosting areas.

  • Create a barrier: by covering up points of access where pigeons can nest, roost, or find shelter, they’ll stop flying towards your home for a place to stay.

  • Install sheathing: place metal or wood sheathing at an angle at window ledges as this prohibits birds from landing near your window ledges.

  • Use a sound device: Sound devices can emit a ringing, buzzing, or sonic sound that is extremely unpleasant for birds, especially pigeons. Install these devices in the most popular areas pigeons seek out around your home or business.

Get professional help.

If the above methods don’t work, call a professional company for pigeon removal services. They can assist in eliminating the pigeon problem before it’s a nuisance.
