All you can hear all day long is the cooing of pigeons on your roof‚ in your gutters‚ in your head. Did you know that pigeons mostly coo when they’re ready to fight‚ mate or nest? That means there’ll be even more of them in a few weeks. It’s time‚ isn’t it?
Feral pigeons are pests that spread the bacteria that cause psittacosis (that can be fatal in 10–15% of those infected without treatment)‚ salmonella and paratyphoid fever. They can breed large families quickly‚ up to six times a year‚ and even when they are discouraged from staying‚ they can be quite stubborn about getting the message. They love normal bird foods like grass seed and fruit‚ but one of their favorite ways of getting food is to dig into your trash. The more available food they can find‚ the bigger the local pigeon population will be – one of the reason why certain cities are banning the feeding of pigeons.
Some signs of pigeons in your home are:
Pigeons can be useful in that they eat spiders and other small bugs‚ but the damage they do to a home is simply not worth throwing out the welcome mat for them.
The best way to discourage pigeons is to get rid of their food sources‚ but your pest control methods need to also remove all of their nests and seal off future and existing entry points. We have years of experience doing this‚ and our certified pigeon removal specialists are ready for your call.
First we look at all the possible food sources the pigeons have access to and remove them‚ if possible‚ which will reduce the population. Then we remove all nests and debris‚ and clean up their droppings – they are highly acidic and can even erode metal. Once that’s done‚ we focus our attention on preventative measures – we cover brooding hot spots‚ seal entry points and give you tips on how to discourage the pigeons’ return. We believe MiteBuster′s integrated pigeon removal system is the most efficient and cost–effective method you’ll find in NJ.
