The High Desert and Inland Empire in Southern California has an abundance of feral pigeons- also known as rock pigeons or city doves- even though pigeons are not native to this land. Pigeons can be a reason for several diseases, enormous excrement, external parasites, and damage to surrounding buildings. They can easily find habitat in buildings, homes, protected roofs, ranches, shopping malls, farms, crops, and any sort of sheds. If they find a property with livestock, poultry, or any source of food or water, they start breeding instantly and increase in number in no time. Pigeons are found to be the number one bird pest species globally and declared as an invasive species by the United States Department of Agriculture. So, as much as some people find it adorable to feed them at Piccadilly Circus in central London, the nuisance pigeons are able to create by their invasion into private properties can cause a lot of irritation and problem for the inhabitants. Therefore, it’s natural to find bird removal solutions for people who are adversely affected by their presence.
The waste created by the innumerous number of pigeons found on roofs, outside shed or backyard is extremely damaging to the materials used on which they sit and excrete. The concrete, roofing, wood, air conditioners, ventilators, solar panels, tiles, and outdoor paint becomes extremely filthy and damaged by their waste. Ventilators, air conditioners, and solar panels can be adversely affected by their continuous intrusion and waste collection. Sometimes even the insurance company would refuse to cover the damages in case your insurance doesn’t cover pest damage.
Pigeons are not clean nesters and carry a lot of filth and bacteria along with them. They use the same nest without cleaning out their feces. Their nests eventually get hardened due to excrement. During the course of their stay, they carry on building frail nests on top of one another. This causes a lot of parasitic insects such as lice, mite, and flies in their nests that feed on them and are transmissible to humans as well.
Plausible Diseases caused by Pigeons
The damage is not restricted to only outdoor machinery, but the diseases they can carry and spread are even more alarming. There are over 60 diseases pigeons can possibly spread around you that are contagious as well, such as Psittacosis, Cryptococcosis, Histoplasmosis, and Salmonella. Their infestation in your shed, attic, or anywhere near your residence can create serious medical conditions that could be life-threatening. Their ability to contaminate livestock, hay, and edible items surrounding the inventory through their droppings is a significant problem. Another fatal and contagious disease in poultry that they transmit is VND (Virulent Newcastle Disease).
Pigeon Control Solution
There are two methods to the bird control procedure in case of severe intrusion and problems: the first method is pigeon prevention, and the other is pigeon removal.
Just like they say prevention is better than cure, the statement holds true for this situation as well. In case you fear pigeon infestation in the future at your property, you need to take precautionary measures right away. Prevention is easier than removal, and there are many tactics that can be used to avoid any kind of pigeon infestation. There are several pigeon spikes and pigeon deterrents available in the market, which can help keep them at bay from your property and roost somewhere else.
In case you are a bit late for the precautionary measures and couldn’t place pigeon spikes or bird deterrents on outside areas of nesting, there are solutions available to cater to this problem as well. If a flock of pigeons has already started nesting on your property, you need to contact High Desert Pigeon Control right away for the removal of bird nests, exclusion netting, and even birth control to stop their breeding.
This is the best possible solution for pigeon roosting on areas such as rooftops, ledges, chimneys, windowsills, gutters, signboards, pipes, and beams. Pigeon spikes are highly recommended bird repellents because they aren’t visible from a distance. This would refrain them from gaining any foothold in the area even if they try repeatedly. Choose unsharpened spikes, so there is no injury caused to them.
Pigeon Birth Control
In case your property is large, and you need a bird deterrent, pigeon birth control can control the reproduction. Facilities like airports, factories, malls, parks, and university campuses resort to this solution without getting into trouble. There are numerous programs that prevent the pigeon eggs from hatching and thus control reproduction. The treatment is extremely humane as well, as it doesn’t include harming or poisoning the bird.
In case you left the problem unchecked, and now the pigeon flock has become heavy at your property, you need to go for pigeon trapping. As feral pigeons are not protected by federal or state law and come under the intrusion category, it’s easier to get rid of them by trapping. Only an expert in this area can execute this properly without harming the birds. Once the flock is decreased in size with the help of trapping, the affected area is installed with pigeon deterrents to diminish future attacks. Various methods of pigeon trapping are used, such as collapsible pigeon traps (for easy transporting), repeating pigeon traps with Shade, or pigeon traps for slanted surfaces. Remember that even leaving a flock a hundred miles away wouldn’t rid you of the problem at hand. They will eventually get back to their roost. Therefore, it’s just the first step, and the next step is to install a pigeon deterrent to provide you a solution for pigeon removal permanently.
