Pigeon Control in Sacramento, CA
No one wants to be welcomed to your business by a flock of pigeons and their droppings. Pigeons have perfectly adapted to our human environments. Your building offers perfect roosts giving them easy access to food and shelter. City life has proven beneficial to pigeons since high human presence wards off natural predators. Besides creating an unsightly mess, pigeons can carry up to 60 different diseases and parasites and can become a breeding ground for bird mites. Their droppings are highly corrosive, destroying window frames and ledges.
Live Pigeon Traps
Attracted by food bait, pigeons enter through a one-way entrance and become trapped. Trapped pigeons can then be carried away. The risk, however, is that pigeons may find their way back and others will join them.
Pigeon Exclusion Devices
Pigeon spikes, bird netting, wires and electrified wires are among the most popular option of pigeon control. Spikes that angle out from a base to which they are attached, like a ledge, make it impossible for pigeons to land. This is the least expensive and most effective method of pigeon removal.
These, used with exclusion devices, are also popular ways of controlling your pigeon population. Some deterrents include a mechanical speaker which plays a variety of predatory bird sounds. A pigeon that hears hawk calls will avoid that area for a long time. A sticky gel can be laid down anywhere, making it very unpleasant for the birds to land on an area. They learn to avoid that place so as not to become entrapped.
