Pigeon Pest Control FAQs

  • Why are pigeons considered pests?

    Pigeons are often considered pests due to their prolific breeding, habit of roosting in urban structures, and the damage caused by their droppings to buildings, vehicles, and public spaces. They can also transmit diseases through their droppings. Contact us today if you need help or advice with a pigeon issue at your home or business.

  • What problems do pigeons cause in urban areas?

    Pigeons in urban areas can create problems such as damage to buildings from nesting and roosting, fouling of public spaces, and potential health risks associated with their droppings.

  • What health risks are associated with pigeons?

    Pigeon droppings can harbour harmful bacteria, fungi, and parasites, posing health risks to humans. Inhalation of dried pigeon droppings can lead to respiratory issues, and contact with contaminated surfaces may result in infections.

  • How can I prevent pigeons from roosting on my property?

    Preventing pigeons from roosting involves using deterrents such as bird spikes, netting, and visual repellents. Regularly cleaning areas where pigeons roost can also discourage them from staying.

  • When should I seek professional help for pigeon control?

    If pigeon-related issues persist despite your efforts or if the infestation is severe, it’s advisable to consult with pest control professionals who can assess the situation and provide effective and ethical solutions.

  • Can I feed pigeons to keep them away from my property?

    Feeding pigeons can attract more of them to your property, exacerbating pest issues. It’s generally advised not to feed pigeons to discourage them from congregating in a particular area.

  • Do ultrasonic devices effectively repel pigeons?

    While ultrasonic devices claim to deter pigeons by emitting high-frequency sounds, their effectiveness is debated. Some users report success, while others find limited results. Combining ultrasonic devices with other deterrents may enhance their efficacy.
