Pigeons and Other Birds

Pigeons

Pigeons have been called ‘rats with wings’ – with good reason! Pigeons can be found almost everywhere. The average Pigeon is about 13″ long, bluish grey, with two cross bands on each wing. A pigeon’s ‘voice’ is a series of softly rolling coos. Even though they sound pleasant enough, pigeons can be dangerous pests. Pigeon nests, droppings, and the birds themselves have more than 50 diseases associated with them. Their droppings are also very acidic. We have several effective methods to eliminate pigeons from your home. We can trap the pigeons and relocate them. Our technicians can also block access areas to pigeon nests or resting areas; this is called ‘exclusion’. As a last resort, poisoned corn can be placed around the pigeon nuisance area.

Other Birds

Sparrows, Crows & Swallows are other birds of nuisance in urban areas. The birds can cause health concerns with their droppings while the nests can cause water backups, trees can be overwhelmed, noise, and sheer numbers can be reasons for bird removal.

 

Call TruTech Pest Control Today and have those nests removed and discuss how we can prevent future nesting and roosting for you.
