You’re not alone in your pigeon problem. Pigeons are an issue in both major cities and suburbs, and while the environments may be different, the methods of prevention or removal remain mostly the same. Below we share some of the most popular methods for pigeon removal and which one works the best, without affecting the appeal of your home.
Understanding Why Pigeons Choose Your Residence
Discovering why pigeons are choosing your home is the first step in removing them. Birds will generally reside for one or two reasons:
- They’ve found your attic or garage to be a warm place to live.
- Your home offers a regular food source.
Eliminating any potential food sources and closing off access to potential nesting areas is the first step in pigeon removal. However, this may not always keep the birds permanently away.
Issues with Physical Methods of Removal
There are many methods of bird removal, both physical and chemical. Although, from a homeowner standpoint, physical methods of removal/prevention can be an eyesore. Physical bird removal methods are exactly that, physical. They can be seen at all times and may take away the aesthetic of your home.
If you want to remove the birds without any large physical objects, chemical methods could be a better fit for you.
Chemical Methods of Removal
The word chemical leaves a nasty taste in people’s mouths. Fortunately, most chemical bird removal methods are not only harmless to pigeons, but are also non-toxic to you and your pets.
Chemical methods work by irritating birds’ pain sensory systems. Once they come in contact with a chemical deterrent, pigeons will remember that your home is not a comfortable place to stay.
