How To Get Rid Of Pigeons
The humble pigeon is an animal that can often divide the opinions of people, with many thinking of them as little more than vermin that need to be exterminated, using terms like ‘flying rats’ and other barbs. Other people will keep domestic pigeons and homing pigeons and will sing the praises of their own birds. The reality is that feral pigeons that are so often to be found around areas of human activity are probably descended from domestic pigeons that have been released into the wild.
This is why there are so many pigeons often to be found in urban areas and cities, and the problems such as droppings, disease and food contamination can often cause significant damage.
The majority of pigeons will not take up residence in domestic homes, rather they prefer large buildings that they can fly in and out of, that will have rafters that they can use. Pigeons are usually a much greater problem in warehouses, derelict building, public shelters that have a large roof they can nest in and have even been known to move into churches or other large open buildings.
There are many different techniques that Milwaukee pigeon removal can use to catch and remove the pigeons, and although some will use live traps the majority of methods to deal with pigeons will be fatal. For those who do use live traps they can be baited with almost any type of food, because pigeons will often want to get hold of any human food that is available. These traps should be checked regularly by Milwaukee bird control, otherwise the animals could suffer if they are left for a long time.
The remaining options for pigeon removal will involve killing the pigeons, and this can be done in a number of ways. If they are being removed in an area where they are nowhere near the public, a marksman will often be able to kill many pigeons. There are also traps that will kill the pigeon on impact, but these will also need to be checked regularly so that the carcass can be responsible removed and destroyed. There are even some towns and cities that have hired a falconer to encourage his pet bird of prey to hunt the pigeons, and this has also had great success.
Ensuring More Pigeons Don’t Return
Once Milwaukee pigeon removal has ensured that the pigeons have been removed, then the next step is to adapt the area to make it much less hospitable for them to choose as a nesting area. There are a number of different things that Milwaukee pigeon removal can do depending on the nature of the building, but one of the commonest techniques is to use pigeon spikes on any railings, ledges or rafters so that the pigeons cannot land and will quickly depart. If there are regular rafters or girders inside the building and the pigeons are entering through an open area below, fine mesh netting can also do a good job of preventing them from returning to the building.
Pigeons are often described as “flying rats”, and this is because they do cause a lot of problems similar to rats, and their droppings can be particularly unpleasant. In certain cities where they have traditionally been fed by people then they can also be a big nuisance, and can get quite aggressive.
Although there have been examples where hiring a man with a trained bird of prey has worked successfully, this is unlikely to be the best solution in the majority of cases. Professional trappers and wildlife removal experts such as Milwaukee bird control will be the best course of action for those who need to get rid of pigeons.
