Expert Humane Pigeon Control with Defender™ Bird Spikes

Do you have a problem with pigeons in and around your property? Would you like to learn more about how to humanely control your pigeon problem?

If you have a pigeon control problem, you are probably looking for humane ways to approach the situation. You recognize that although you want to improve your pigeon predicament, you want to find a way to take care of it in a humane, animal friendly way.

Typically, pigeon control falls into four basic categories:

    • deterrence


    • exclusion


    • crop management


  • population reduction

Of these methods, deterrence is the most humane way to control your pigeon population. Here are some common pigeon problems along with easy solutions that are both cost effective and humane methods of controlling pigeons.

Problem – Pigeons often prefer to use the interior portions of buildings to nest and roost if an opportunity for access is provided.

  • Pigeon Control Solution – Openings to lofts, steeples, vents and eaves can be blocked with ½ inch galvanized wire mesh, wood, sheet metal or other solid construction materials to prevent pigeons from entering.

Problem – Pigeon numbers in the area are increasing.

  • Pigeon Control Solution – Reduce available food source; pigeons control their numbers by breeding less frequently when food availability is reduced.

Problem – Pigeons will nest or perch on the exterior surfaces of buildings.

  • Pigeon Control Solution – The most effective and permanent methods of pigeon control involve modifications which either physically exclude pigeons from the preferred surface or make it difficult for the birds to rest comfortably on the exposed building surfaces. A perfect way to prevent pigeons from perching or nesting on your property is with anti-roosting bird spikes. Anti-roosting spikes have many advantages:
    • Tough
    • Long-lasting
    • Transparent
    • Dense
    • Flexible
    • Environmentally safe and non-lethal

Anti-roosting bird spikes from Deterapigeon are simply glued onto any window, pipe or ledge where pigeons roost. The dense pattern of protruding pins makes it impossible for pigeons to land, does not hurt them and encourages them to go elsewhere. They are virtually invisible once installed and provide the ultimate pigeon control. In fact, the Humane Society of the United States recommends spikes as one of the solutions to unwanted pest pigeons on your ledge.

Each of these solutions has a specific application depending on your situation. To learn more about pigeon control products that are safe, effective and humane, check out today!
