Need Help With A Specific Bird?
DO YOU HAVE A NUISANCE PIGEON CONCERN?
Pigeons have adapted well to living in an urban environment. There is usually lots of food and shelter available and since they are not afraid of people they will pretty much roost anywhere. Their nests are made of sticks and grasses and clumped together. They can be found in rafters, beams, behind insulation, get into walls, building lofts, church steeples, attics, etc. The droppings (also known as guano) is high in acid and can corrode gutters, metal structures, erode stone buildings, and burn lawns. Their droppings can also be a health hazard if inhaled.
HOW DO WE GET RID OF NUISANCE BIRDS?
Certain methods that work for other bird abatement are usually ineffective at removing pigeons as they are accustomed to human interaction. There are still a wide variety of techniques that can be used, some with more success than others. In most cases, they are most effective when used in combination. As feral birds, pigeons are not protected by any federal or state laws, though local ordinances may exist; it is still best to call a wildlife control specialist to deal with the wild animals. The safest method of removal is to contact a qualified professional to take care of the nuisance birds. Wildlife control specialists are trained to humanely eradicate troublesome birds from homes.
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON DISEASES SPREAD BY PIGEONS?
Histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis are two of the most common diseases spread by pigeon feces. Pigeons are also a host for parasites which can transmit a number of diseases as well.
