Pigeon Control & Removal

How to settle a pigeon related problem

Pigeons or "Rock Doves" are quite common in cities around the world, and in many places, they aren't considered as household pests too often but if you have got them at your place, the better is it for you! Pigeon control is a real issue, and if not taken proper steps on time, it may cause several illnesses. Also, the droppings make the surroundings look nasty. Considering all these factors, we often prefer calling up a professional to clean the place and control its existence, but here are a few tips that you can opt to try before! 

Problem With Pigeons

Pigeons are neither ugly nor harmful, and if you have ever tried chasing it, you might have found it to be more scared from you than you have been from it! The feces contain diseases such as Chiamidosis (much like the virus, Influenza), cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, and psittacosis (much like pneumonia). Besides, they carry pests like mites, lice, ticks, and fleas that can make other people sick. The pigeon droppings were treated as manure in the middle ages, but to the intellectual people, it serves as an agent of sickness that spreads among the people with low immunity.

How to get rid of these pigeon threats?

Looking at the way these pigeons are attracted to humans, it is essential to call out a pigeon control procedure as early as possible. If your residence has been a target of this nuisance, it is more important than all other tasks you have in hand. 

We see most farmers prefer shooting these pigeons to save their farms, or else, they opt for trapping the flocks. These are good-to-go solutions but are not permanent. This is because this is not going to last long as the eggs they have laid will hatch within a few days, and a new population will be up soon!

Keeping Pigeons Away

To control the population of the pigeons, the first and foremost thing that you can do is to change their habitat. By keeping a hostile environment, you will encourage these scavengers to live! Changing the environment will lay its impact on its population as well. Another common reason that drives the existence of these pigeons is the availability of open food sources that is quite prevalent in the urban areas. Therefore, make sure that whether it is a park or a garden, it should be devoid of all food sources. Another way out to get rid of these pests is to use a pigeon repellant. It is useful if you can fix things yourself. In case you can't, call for a professional to seek assistance.
