  • Where to Look for Pest Pigeons on Your Building

    Pigeons, Pigeon controlPigeons are the number one pest bird problem in the United States. They will nest and roost on, in and under many different structures. To keep pigeons from defacing and damaging property, it’s important to know where they roost and nest. What they eat and how they often gather in such large numbers.

    Food, Shelter and Safety

    Pigeons prefer lofty places that offer safety from predators and the easy access to food and water. Today’s pigeons have grown highly dependent on humans for food and sites for roosting, loafing and nesting. The birds need about 1 ounce (30 ml) of water every day, so look up from any source of free-standing water and chances are you’ll find them. This is also why pigeons prefer roof spaces that contain unsealed water tanks or cisterns. Continue reading

  • How to Keep Pigeons off Roofs

    keep pigeons offPigeons have been attracted to roofs since man first began building these structures. You can’t blame the birds; most roofs provide easy access to shelter and a high perch to spot predators, food and water. Roofs often have structures like AC units, water tanks, solar panels, chimneys, and aerial arrays where pigeons can build nests. In addition, many pigeons respond to the their ancestors’ cliff dwelling habits when they seek shelter on roofs.

    Regrettably, property owners have had to deal with the costly and damaging nature of these “rats with wings.” Continue reading

  • Keep Pigeons from Destroying Solar Panels

    Many homeowners and income property owners are installing solar panels to save electricity. Trouble is, in many areas, pigeons are attracted to these panels, as they offer shade and protection to the birds. When these prolific birds flock to a roof, they create costly damage by depositing droppings that eat into the surface of solar panels. Left to gather, these droppings block sunlight and can reduce the overall efficiency of panels. In addition, nesting materials built under panels can impede airflow and can cause them to overheat, again, more damage. Fortunately, the bird control pros at Bird B Gone have a solution to this problem.

  • Pigeon deterrent spikes are ideal at keeping pigeons off buildings

    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. Pigeon nesting materials, feathers and droppings often block parapet gutters and hopper heads, allowing water to enter a building. This can lead to the growth of decay organisms, resulting in even more damage. Continue reading

  • Get rid of pigeons with pigeon deterrents

    pestbirdsFeral pigeons are the most prolific urban pest bird in the world, causing millions of dollars in damage annually. 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
