What to Do About Nuisance Pigeons

September 22nd, 2021

Pigeons

Whether they are nesting in your chimney or nesting in your attic space, pigeons aren’t animals you want lingering around your home. If you think you have a pigeon issue, we have four steps you can take to get rid of the problem.

1. Get An Inspection

The first step in dealing with bird removal is to get an inspection. During the inspection, a bird removal specialist will come to your home or business and identify the issue. From there, they’ll consult with you about how the pigeons or other birds can be removed safely.

Make sure you find a wildlife removal service that is transparent about their pricing and their plans for removal. If you live in Southwest Florida or the St. Petersburg area, Alford Wildlife and Pest Management provides free inspections that you can schedule online!

2. Leave It to The Pros

A wildlife management company will have various methods they can use to remove pigeons from your home. Some common methods used for bird removal include bird netting, flex track, optical gel, and bird spikes.

At Alford Wildlife and Pest Management, we specialize in population control and several Bird Barrier and Bird-X products. We’ll use our knowledge, tools, and expertise to make sure your home is bird-free in no time!

3. Ensure The Area Is Cleaned

Talk to the wildlife management company about how they plan to decontaminate the space where the birds have been living or where they are found dead. Pigeons can carry diseases and bring pests like ticks and fleas into your home.

4. Deter The Birds from Returning

Once the pigeons are gone, it is important to make sure they stay gone! Your wildlife management company should work with you to come up with a plan to protect your home from future bird issues. This may include measures like installing netting, spikes, or visual deterrents.
