4 Best Tips to Prevent Pigeons
- Clean Outside of House and Lock Trash Cans
- Stop Pigeons from Building Nests
- Residential Entrances should be Sealed
- Seek Professional Help
1. Clean Outside of House and Lock Trash Cans
Examining the exterior of the house to make sure there are no readily available food sources is the first step in successful pigeon removal. To prevent pigeons from feeding on your leftover food scraps you must secure garbage cans by using recycling bins or compost bins. Pigeons might be deterred from returning by taking away any platters, plates, or serving utensils left over from grilling or outdoor dining.
Make sure all other family members are aware of the need of maintaining outside spaces clear of food and food containers once these common sources of food for birds have been eliminated. By doing this, pigeons won’t see your house as a potential source of food.
2. Stop Pigeons from Building Nests
Pigeons can build nests anywhere over your house, including rafters, roofs, balconies, garages, outdoor storage sheds, attics, and ledges. You can put bird spikes along the surface or edges where they are likely to land. This way you can deter the birds from creating a home over there.
These thick and long spikes are more effective when placed closely together. Pigeons can still build nests between the prongs if they are spaced too widely apart. These spikes may appear deadly, but they are relatively dull and flexible, and their intended purpose is to make a bird uncomfortable on a surface not to harm them by any means.
3. Residential Entrances should be Sealed
As they are intelligent creatures, pigeons may search for entries into your cosy and safe home when they need to seek shelter from potential predators or bad weather. To prevent pigeons from entering your home, you must block any openings that might seem alluring to them. Inspect your balcony, windows, and main door to find any potential entry points for the small birds.
Hardware cloth or pigeon netting for balconies can block larger entries, while silicone caulk is an easy way to seal minor holes. If any major repairs are required, now could be a good time to contact a roofing contractor. In addition to keeping out pigeons, a solid roof will protect your house from other creatures during bad weather.
