HOW TO AVOID GETTING PIGEONS
The first step of pigeon control is prevention. Pigeon populations are sustained almost exclusively through deliberate feeding. Elderly and single people are normally the individuals who will go out up to 7 days a week and feed the birds, allowing them to multiply quickly. Around your home and business you can make sure you aren’t inadvertently contributing to these feedings by not leaving out food, such as dog food that they could get into to, or water. To discourage roosting or perching on windowsills and roofs as well as gutters you can place anti-roosting spikes which are highly effective in deterring them. This will go a long way in pigeon proofing your home or business.
