Bird Prevention for Pigeons & Other BirdsClick here for a nationwide list of 100's of professional bird control experts!
Pigeons and other birds can cause a real nuisance to commercial property owners and homeowners alike. The primary problem with birds is that they often select buildings - public buildings - as roosting sites, and they leave their droppings everywhere. This is a serious sanitation problem, and most building owners facing such a dilemma would like to be rid of those foul feathered beasts once and for all.
Bird prevention is not simple. There are many products available on the market purporting to scare away or deter bird populations. Some of these products include fake owls or hawk decoys, whether in plastic or balloon form, or ultrasonic sound emitting devices. These products are a waste of time, and don't work in the slightest. In fact, true bird control experts will sometimes seek out plastic owls in order to find out where they might get real bird prevention work!
Effective bird prevention relies upon methods meant to simply prevent birds from roosting in the affected areas - basically, physical barriers. Some examples of the barriers used to keep out birds include large and elaborate netting systems that prevent birds from flying to, and landing on, affected areas. Other good physical deterrents include needle strips, which are tracks covered with sharp spikes that will prevent birds from landing on the surfaces covered with such a product. Shock tracks are also available, and they deliver an electrical jolt when the bird attempts to land on the roosting surface. These products and methods will work, but it's not the kind of thing that an amateur can install. Oftentimes it takes a professional company to do the job correctly.
