Phoenix Pigeon Control

Pigeon Control Phoenix AZ

Pigeon control is a serious problem for many in Phoenix. Getting rid of pigeons on your own is never easy. These pest birds have a innate homing instinct that makes them feel attached to their established roosting and nesting areas. Couple that with the fact that mating pairs can hatch as many as four broods a year, your small pigeon problem can rapidly turn into a disaster. Pigeons can resort to laying eggs on bare surfaces if they have to, so getting rid of pigeons isn’t as simple as removal of their nests. 

What is Pigeon Control?

Pigeons are by far the most common type of “pest bird” here in Arizona. They are responsible for an assortment of problems at homes as well as offices and commercial building, such as airports and power plants. According to the experts at Bird-X pigeons can cause a number of problems for humans, including:

  • Pigeon feces can contain diseases such as cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, and psittacosis that can make people sick
  • They can carry other pests like fleas, ticks, lice, and mites that can themselves carry other diseases or make people sick
  • Pigeon droppings can also become a liability risk. The droppings can make surfaces slick and lead to slip and fall incidents.
  • Pigeons naturally like to build their nests in small niches and crevices of cliffs. In an urban environment, this can translate into pigeons building nests in building air vents and chimneys, which can become a fire hazard.
  • It can cost tens of thousands of dollars to safely clean up built up pigeon feces
  • Contamination from bird droppings can result in government citations and fines that can shut down businesses.
  • Their droppings also highly acidic and have a corrosive effect on buildings and other structures. In extreme cases they have even been known to eat through steel and cause structural collapse.
These factors make pigeons a difficult, but important bird to control in Phoenix.

Tips on Pigeon Control in Phoenix

Pigeons are highly adaptable, somewhat intelligent and not afraid of humans. Together these combine to make pigeons a difficult pest to control. In order to keep the relentless birds away, it is best to prevent rather than remove when ever possible. Before you start randomly placing bird spikes or dusting off your childhood bb gun, you should survey the exterior of your home and make nesting areas as inhospitable as possible. Here are some simple methods to get rid of pigeons around your home.

How do I get rid of pigeons in Arizona?

  • Install anti-roosting bird spike strips. Choose logical spots such as window sills or ledges to keep pigeons from landing.
  • Tie a string or metal wire across roosting areas. Strings tied one inch above the nesting areas will make landing uncomfortable for pigeons.
  • Install sloping covers to window sills and ledges. If there are no flat surfaces to stand or build nests on, the pigeons will migrate to another place to make their home.
  • Stop feeding them.  Like most birds, if you feed pigeons, they will keep coming back and the extra of food will attract others. 
  • Eliminate of other food sources. Just like actively feeding them, any available food source will attract them roost near your home. Make sure that all trash is properly sealed and placed in a bin with the lid closed.

Once they realize the unsightly nests and unpleasant smells are more than they can put up with, pigeon removal becomes a priority. DIY pigeon control is possible but most busy home owners find that’s it more effective to hire a pro. Others put off pigeon removal because they believe it involves poison, and unsightly bird spikes.
