You can also scare pigeons by inflating several balloons and painting large eyes on them. Pigeons will see the eyes and think that there is a large predator on your balcony or porch.

Pigeons are the bane of many city dwellers’ lives. They leave their dropping on balconies and porches and can even transmit fleas to your pets. It is possible to scare away pigeons humanely and even cheaply, if you know what kinds of things strike terror into the heart of a pigeon. Here’s how to scare away pigeons.

Don’t just ignore your pigeon problem. Those baby pigeons nesting on your balcony may be cute, and maybe you’d hate to evict them from their home, but invariably pigeons mean pigeon droppings, which can compromise your health. The elderly, the young and people with compromised immune systems can contract fungal and bacterial diseases, such as histoplasmosis, from pigeon droppings. While only a small number of people are infected yearly, it is a concern if you have a young child or elderly person living with you.

Place plastic owls and rubber snakes strategically around your balcony or porch. This may scare the pigeons. You will need to continually move the owls and snakes, or the pigeons will learn that they are harmless and ignore them.
