The most effective way to rid your rooftop of pigeons is to install commercial grade bird control products specifically designed for roof applications. At Bird B Gone we specialize in effective bird control products for the professional and residential consumers. Lucky for you, our bird control experts have shared their top recommendations for DIY bird control products for roofs.
Pigeons, seagulls and other bird species are drawn to roofs for a specific reason, roofs are the perfect destination to roost comfortably. Rooftops provide ample space to look for food, water, and keep a look out for predatory threats. If you have the tallest roof in the neighborhood, there’s a good chance the birds in your area gravitate to your rooftop. Likewise, if your business has the tallest building in the area, the birds are sure to be drawn to your roof to perch.
Although pigeons are typically the main pest bird, other bird species such as seagulls, crows, and vultures will scout for high vantage points to rest. This is where rooftop bird control becomes so important.
Note: It is important to clean away nesting materials and droppings thoroughly before installation of products.
Bird Spikes and Bird Wire are two of the most popular deterrents used for pigeon and seagull sized birds. They prevent pigeon sized birds from attaining stable footing to land, forcing them away from the roof. These products should not be used for smaller birds as they allow sparrow sized birds to comfortably perch. Deterrents such as bird spike, bird wire, electric track, and repellent gels will quickly get rid of pigeons when used correctly.
The following products are made to deter all bird species from exposed rooftops. Some locations will experience not just pigeons, but small bird species as well. In these cases, it is important to select the appropriate deterrent for your situation. Bird B Gone’s electric track system works for all bird species. The Bird Jolt Flat Track system conditions pest birds to avoid the tracks by using a mild electric shock.
