While there are lots of pests that crawls into your home, here is the most common pest bird that can fly in!
- Identification- The pigeon is the most common pest bird and is responsible for the worst public health concerns. The adult pigeon is about 11 inches long with a short neck, small head, and short legs. Pigeons can be identified by their blue-grey color and iridescent feathers on the head and neck. Pigeons nest on small, flat areas away from the ground, such as ledges, air conditioning units, pipes, and window sills. Pigeons eat a varied diet of grains, discarded food, and livestock feed and manure, and they must have water daily to survive.
- Pigeon Problems- Besides the general nuisance of large flocks in public spaces, pigeons’ feces deface structures, accelerate deterioration, and cause slipping hazards. Their crude nesting debris clogs machinery. Pigeons are known to carry numerous diseases including pigeon ornithosis, encephalitis, and histoplasmosis, as well as various ectoparasites. Pigeons adapt very easily to manmade environments and may travel up to five miles between nesting and roosting sites, making a settled flock quite challenging to move.
- Getting Rid of Pigeons- Because of their homing capabilities and habitual instincts, captured and released pigeons will simply find their way back to the original nesting site. Moved flocks quickly adapt and settle in new environments, so visual and auditory scare devices are less effective the more established the roost.
- Food and water sources in particular should be as inaccessible as possible.
- A tactile repellent such as 4 The Birds Repellent Gel may be applied to ledges, sills, roofs, peaks, cornices, bridges, and overpasses to deter birds from landing.
- 4 The Birds Liquid Repellent can be sprayed on beams, girders, struts, supports and other areas where birds land or roost. 4 The Birds can also be sprayed on trees, bushes, and vines (except for those that are in bloom or bearing fruit).
- Bird netting is one of the most effective pigeon control products as it excludes the birds from possible landing, roosting, and nesting areas.
