    pigeon controlRegrettably, pigeons and buildings are almost synonymous. And many a building/owner/manager has had to deal with the costly and destructive nature of these “rats with wings.” Pigeon droppings are not only unsightly but destructive, eating into wood, plastic, vinyl and stone surfaces. Removing these droppings can be difficult and expensive.

    Pigeons Cause Extensive Damage

    Pigeon nests, droppings and feathers often block gutters and rainwater pipes, causing water damage. The nuisance birds will lift loose roof coverings, tiles and battens to gain entry into roof voids. Rainwater is then free to enter, creating wood-rotting fungi, which then attracts insects, resulting in further damage.

Unless bird droppings are promptly removed, these surfaces can be defaced and damaged.   Continue reading

They multiply rapidly and their droppings and nests attract more pigeons. The corrosive uric acid in their droppings can eat into paint, metal, plastic vinyl and even stone. Their feathers, nests and droppings can wreak havoc with rooftop ventilators, AC units, solar panels, skylights, drain spouts and rain gutters, causing all sorts of costly damage. In addition to physical damage, the bacteria, fungal agents and ectoparasites found in pigeon droppings can create a serious health risk. Finally, there’s simply the cost of cleanups as droppings gather to deface signage, windows, walls, entryways and doors—another ongoing maintenance expense. Continue reading

  • Protect your home from pest pigeons with pigeon spikes

    keep pigeons offThe feral pigeon is often the pest bird that needs to be deterred. The conflict with the pigeon is usually when they invade the home. The bird flu and other transmittable diseases are known to be associated with pigeons. Another major concern is the damage the pigeon creates on the property. In urban areas and most cities, the supply of food all year long for these pests is why they are going to settle on your home and other structures on your property. It is a comfortable habitat for their breeding and other natural habits. Pigeons lay eggs up to six times per year. This means the pigeons are capable of multiplying rather quickly if left to do so.
