Pigeons are a variety of bird species that are found almost everywhere in the world. The most common place to find a pigeon is in urban areas. They have stout bodies with short necks and short, slender bills. They come in a variety of colors such as white and gray, gray and black, green and grey or any combinations of the two depending on what subspecies it is. Pigeons go wherever there is food and (like all wild animals) leave excrement (urine and droppings) behind them. The pigeon droppings are not only unsightly but also hazardous to your health. They can cause serious but treatable infections of the lungs including histoplasmosis, crytococcosis, and psittacosis.
Do you have a pigeon problem?
What to look for:
- One obvious sign of a pigeon problem is pigeon droppings (feces, excrement) in attics, garages, or warehouses, or pigeon defecation on anything that they can fly over, such as on cars, trucks, roofs, sidewalks, picnic tables, playgrounds, driveways, and in parking facilities.
- A secondary indication would be pigeon nests in attics, garages, warehouses, or on window ledges.
Our pigeon removal services:
- It's been proven that trapping and relocation methods are the most effective way to remove them. Some other bird and wildlife control companies sometimes use other methods for pigeon removal, but these other methods are not as effective and frequently inhumane. Some companies will use poison to kill birds. These methods will only bring you more trouble because the birds then often die in the attic or other roosting area and produce a sickening stench. Then the removal of the dead pigeon carcass will be necessary.
- After Pigeons are trapped and removed, thourough clean up and pigeon control (deterrents and intrusion prevention) services are recommended. Trained and experienced, our technicians can assess the amount of pigeon or other bird droppings in your attic or in specific areas of your property, and provide an estimate for cleaning up and sanitizing affected areas, and for the best methods for repelling other pigeons from causing more damage.
