Pigeon Control is a very important step in order to keep your home or business safe from the many problems pigeons cause.
Watching pigeons at the park loafing around or eating pieces of bread from the local pigeon feeder is no big deal. On the other hand a flock of pigeons taking over your property is a whole other ballgame. Engaging in effective pigeon control and pigeon cleanup is important before any pigeon problem whether it be commercial or residential gets out of control.
3 Good Reasons You Need Pigeon Removal
There are many good reasons for professional pigeon removal. Here are 3 of the top reasons why you should consider hiring a professional pigeon control company
Pigeons carry disease
Pigeons are very dirty birds. It might surprise you the number of pathogens that pigeons spread. This includes more than 60 diseases, including histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis.
Although it is rare that the diseases and pathogens that pigeons carry will be fatal to humans, that doesn’t mean they can’t make you, your family, and your pets very sick if exposed to them.
Pigeons carry parasites
In addition, pigeons are also known carriers of mites, fleas, and ticks, which do cause discomfort and possibly serious health issues in people. If your home or business are infested with pigeons the risk of being exposed to these diseases or the pathogens they carry is magnified.Get started with Pigeonpros
Pigeons defacate. Pigeons poop. Defacation is an art for these Pigeons. They don’t hold back when it comes to pooping.
Pigeon droppings are how most of the diseases and pathogens that these birds carry are transmitted to others.
Most commonly, inhaling the pathogens in the dried droppings can spread these diseases to people.
Pigeon poop may cause major damage to your property
Pigeon poop corrodes exterior paint on buildings or car paint, eats at wood, cloggs rain gutters, and shorts out electrical equipment and wiring. In addition to the physical damage to your property, pigeon droppings ruin your home’s curb appeal.Let Pigeonpros help you
If pigeons decide to move in, they will nest throughout your property. Some examples: Pigeons may build nests under solar panels, in rain gutters, in chimneys, little cubby holes where the rooftop interesects with other angles of your roof, or in drains.
Pigeons cause roof leaks
If a pigeon nest clogs any part of your home’s roof drainage system, the roof may not drain properly and could result in structural problems such as a roof leak or in the worst cases a collapsed roof.
Also, if birds nest near the chimney or the ventilation system, the nesting materials used may block airflow into your home, which can potentially result in disease-carrying pigeon feathers spreading into the interior.Pigeonpros can help
A few tips for getting rid of the pigeons
Pigeons are considered the number one pest bird problem in the United States and around the world.
What’s worse than finding that your vehicle has been used as a pigeon toilet or noticing that the birds nesting materials have clogged your roof up and caused a roof leak? Not much. As well, these airborne “rats with wings” cause distress to humans by pooping on every surface of your home or property, they will also annoy and frustrate you by causing major damage to your home or business.
1. Discourage Pigeons before they get started
Don’t feed the birds! Pigeons will be more likely to nest on your property if they have access to food. Pigeons have great memories. They won’t forget a good food source. They will consistently return to places, most likely with more pigeon friends.
As such, it’s important to ensure that your property does not have any food source that may be attractive to these nuisance birds. So first, whatever you do, do not by any means feed pigeons on your property. It may seem cute to feed pigeons bread while at the park, but you’ll be very unhappy with the results of feeding them at your house.
Additionally, look for any other food sources around your property. These may be anything from trash receptacles that are not tightly secured to grass seed, berries or fruit on trees, and food left outside. Eliminating or controlling access to food sources will reduce the number of pigeons.
2. Seal off any openings
PIgeons will try to get inside, with that being said, it is important to know that pigeons will get inside your home if you don’t have openings sealed off.
To begin with, pigeons getting in the attic is a problem that happens more than you might think. That is why it is important to fill any gaps between your roof tiles, the stucco or the siding of your home where they may be able to gain access.
Also, you may want to cap your chimneys. Many pest birds can gain entry into your home through a chimney, so it’s important that there is a solution in place to prevent birds access to the chimney.
Installing screen, mesh, or stainless steel caps are an effective solution for preventing these birds and other pests from entering while still allowing smoke to escape the chimney.
3. Pigeon proof your home
Additionally, after ensuring all openings and attractive entrances into your home are blocked off, it is also very important to pigeon proof any other areas around your home where pigeons can nest or roost.
This will be areas like the peak of the roof, the rafters, solar panel areas, balconies, alcoves, shady areas, and ledges. You can deter pigeons from getting comfortable at your home in a variety of ways, but certain pigeon deterrents are far more effective than others.
As part of your pigeon proofing plans, consider using these effective pigeon control methods and deterrents.
Pigeon control spikes are an easy, way to keep pigeons and other birds from invading your home or property. These spikes can prevent pigeons from landing on a surface, whether it be your roof, balcony, or a ledge.
Installation pigeon netting is an effective way to prevent these pigeons from reaching certain areas around your home. Pigeon netting can be effective when used to protect air conditioning units and solar panel systems.

We know how frustrating pigeons can be. Here area a few more ideas that may help you eliminate your pigeon problem.
4. Pigeon trapping may be an option
If pigeons are infesting your home or property, one way to reduce the bird population is to set up pigeon traps on your roof.
Trapping pigeons may be necessary if your efforts to repel them from your roof or property are unsuccessful. Setting up traps can often be a difficult, time consuming job and will only be effective if you know what you are doing.
There are humane traps designed specifically for pigeons, consisting of large cages with doors that will trap the pigeons without causing any harm to them. In Arizona, there is no law against killing these pigeons humanely and this must be done to prevent pigeons from returning to your property.Got pigeons under your solar panels?
