Pigeon Problems

 

 

Pigeons, Columbia lavia, are the most common nuisance bird in America, and they exclusively utilize man-made sites! Pigeons are stimulated to choose a site because of its orientation, structural character and proximity to food and water sources. Pigeons make value judgments every day, usually to the determent of people in the site (see Consequences “Did you know” of Pigeons).

Lethal control is not socially acceptable for many, but pigeons have no federal protection. For small populations or isolated birds, lethal control can provide relief. Often however, the birds learn to avoid these actions over time. In cities and industrial sites, birds can not be controlled by lethal means due to unprofessional actions, which end up training the birds avoidance behaviors.

Many aversion products are proposed and marketed. Most are failures! While they may look good to humans, effigies and sound machines do not impact pigeons long-term. There may be initial reactions, but within a week, the birds learn that the aversion activity has no personal affect and they become resistant.

Controlling pigeons by structural exclusion can be affective when done properly. However it is often the most expensive solution. In addition, unprofessional installation creates costs and not control- the birds remain. Often even proper installation will alter the site and make new habitat for other pests.

MA aerosols offer bird control without changing the site and with no lethal or negative environmental effects. They can expel and buffer small locations or large areas with millions of cubic feet. With no reentry restrictions, They can operate while people work and move in control areas. With every release, the birds evacuate, and over time they “learn” the site is not acceptable and they go elsewhere.
