Starting a garden? Beware of pesky pigeons. Pigeons will make nests in your garden and eat the plants you are trying to grow. Pigeons carry a lot of germs and viruses, so you probably don’t want them living in your garden. Before starting a garden, here are a few steps to take to ensure you won’t have a pigeon problem.

Install Netting to Protect Your Garden
Bird netting is an effective and humane way to keep pigeons out of your garden. Placing pigeon netting around your garden will obstruct bothersome pigeons from accessing your plants. Before putting up netting, be sure to measure the area and choose the correct type of netting specifically for pigeons. However, this might not be the most cost-effective solution.
Eliminate Pigeons With A Bird Repellent
Bird repellents contain an ingredient that causes an undesirable sensation for birds. Once this sensation is felt, birds are taught to avoid treated areas for good. A licensed bird repellent is one of the best ways to get rid of unwanted pigeons because of its mild nature. The effects of the chemicals are not harmful to pigeons and this will have your garden bird-free in no time.
