Pigeon Facts

  1. Pigeons are our most common urban bird. Found just about everywhere, worldwide except maybe the Artic/Antartic. Pigeons are considered the number one pest bird problem in the United States and around the world, 400 million pigeons worldwide.
  2. They flock to protect themselves, many more eyes to see predators.
  3. They may have been around since 3000 BC.
  4. They have been referred to as “Rock Doves” – The first time it was mentioned in the Bible it was reference to the pigeon (or dove) was in the Old Testament of the Bible in the first millennium AC and this was the story of Noah and the dove of peace. In the New Testament, the pigeon was first mentioned during the baptism of Christ where the dove descended as the Holy Spirit and continues to be the sign of Peace.
  5. Pigeon droppings deface and accelerate the deterioration of buildings and increase the cost of maintenance.  Large amounts of droppings may kill vegetation and produce an objectionable odor.  A single pigeon can produce up to 25 pounds of guano, annually.
  6. Pigeons are monogamous and typically mate for life.

Pesky pigeons…

Tips for control:

  1. When excluding for pigeons consider the entire resting or roosting area.
  2. Hardware cloth is best, chicken wire doesn’t look nice. By the way you can spray paint hardware cloth.
  3. Remove all the nesting materials.
  4. Clean as much as possible.

Birds and their damage.

So you just noticed that birds or something is getting into your attic, well if you ignore it maybe it will just go away? Probably not, but even if you fix the problem that might not be the end of it. Birds, critters or even pests can cause other problems. The animals might have parasites and once you get rid of them the parasites might come down from the attic looking for food. That might be you!

So one of my suggestions would be to do periodic checks of your property, look up and down. Look for openings or rub marks (like the picture on the right), or for feces buildup on your home (left picture). My recommendation is to do monthly or at the very least quarterly checks of your property.

Pigeon issues at your home?

Then you need a little help in clearing them off and away from your home. Hardly a house in this neighborhood had a single pigeon on it.
