How To Get Rid Of Pigeons

Birds are pretty to look at but they're also pretty in another way. When birds come onto the property of a business, they can be pretty frustrating. Canada geese destroy waterways. Crows congregate and create a noise disturbance. Starlings get into electrical boxes and present a fire hazard. While all birds cause many similar problems, each pest bird has its own unique traits that make it unique. Let's take a look at pigeons.

Common Bird Problems

Like all pest birds, you can expect pigeons to create the following issues when they come onto your property:

  • Birds leave droppings everywhere. Droppings are not just unsightly, they present many issues. When left on walkways, they can be a slipping hazard for customers and employees. When left on exterior surfaces, they can present a health hazard. When dropped on customers, they can leave a very bad impression. And the droppings from birds are acidic and corrosive to building materials.
  • The nests created by birds are frustrating to deal with and remove. Nest clean up requires protective gear to prevent serious illness.
  • Birds can bring parasites with them. One parasite that is of particular importance is the deer tick, which can carry Lyme disease.
  • Many birds clog gutters, and those clogged gutters can cause water damage to a structure.
  • All birds have the capacity to create unwanted noises.

Unique Pigeon Problems

These are smart birds. Really smart, in fact. They are able to pass the mirror test, a specialized test that determines whether or not a creature is able to recognize its own reflection in a mirror. The pigeon is only one of 6 species able to do this. Pigeons are also smart in other ways. They can recognize all 26 letters of the English alphabet. Smart birds! But sadly, this is not a positive attribute if you're looking to keep a pest out of your trash or out of your business. To keep these clever birds away, you're going to need a clever bird control specialist.
