Damage Caused By Bird Droppings/Get rid of pigeons

The life expectancy of a rooftop for commercial, can be cut in half by the continuous application of bird droppings. The accumulation of bird droppings can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs or an entire roof replacement. Bird droppings are naturally acidic and bird droppings actually eat away at most substrates, especially tar-based roofing materials. When bird droppings are allowed to accumulate on rooftops, they eat into the material and eventually cause leaks.

Bird Nest/ Water Damage/ How to keep birds away!

Pigeon nests are often built in rain gutters, drains and corners of roofs where drains are located. Pest control for commercial properties and warehouses is necessary when they experience water damage every year. There are rooftops that even collapsed when drainage systems are blocked and standing water is allowed to accumulate.

Bird Droppings/ Collapsing Ceilings/ Get rid of pigeons

Pigeons enter attics of apartments, warehouses, restaurants and other commercial buildings through openings that are not sealed off properly. In most scenarios the pigeons will set up residence in these protected areas and start to build nests, all the time discarding bird droppings. Over time the weight of the droppings becomes so great that the actual ceiling can collapse.

Fires Started by Bird Nests/ How to keep birds away!

Nesting materials such as straw, twigs and dried droppings are usually very flammable due to their dry nature. When birds build their nests inside fire place ducts, electric signs or other areas where the nesting materials may be introduced to fire, there is a great risk of property damage. Sign companies that service electric signs blame bird nests for most of their sign fires.

Bird Nests Blocked Ventilation System/ Get rid of pigeons

Bird nests built in chimneys and ventilation systems can not only spread diseases through the system, but can actually block airflow which can have horrible consequences. Any bird’s nest blocking an outside air intake, may cause carbon monoxide levels to rise in the facility and create a serious health hazard to humans.

pigeon trapBird Trapping (Pigeons)

The success of a trapping program relies on several factors:  scheduled trap maintenance, trap design, technician experience, and proper trap placement.  A good trapping program offers a comfortable and attractive environment that will lure them into the trap.  Sometimes trapping is done prior to the installation of other control products.  Problem birds can be removed from a site by trapping to eliminate some of the pressure that they might exert on a deterrent system installed later.  Trapping is an effective flock reduction tool because it reduces the overall number of breeding pairs.


Batting (Avitrol)

Avitrol is a poison bait with flock-alarming properties used for the control of feral pigeons in such a way that a part of the flock may react and frighten the rest of the flock away.  Birds that react and alarm a flock have usually consumed a lethal dose.
