City pigeons or technically speaking feral Pigeons are the biggest nuicense in urban areas. Because of their ability to breed all year around, the number of these pigeons have sharply risen. These feral pigeons pose a health risk to humans as they are the potential carriers of diseases. Their droppings are prime transmitters of urnithosis and salmonellosis. That is why it is so important to utilize pigeon removal methods.
These feral pigeons peck at the food and when perched on the highest point on the roof for a vantage point, they invariably peck and destroy the roofing crowns and tiles. This may lead to a costly repair if not taken care immediately. There are several options available to pigeon proof the roof and keep them away from the roof of your home.
The first and easy way of pigeon proofing is to use a bird gel. This transparent non-toxic bird repellent gel makes the surface tacky and uncomfortable for the birds to sit on and thus uninviting. Over time pigeons will avoid the areas applied by this gel for perching.
Bird Spikes is another way of keeping the pigeons off your roof. These spikes come in two materials – polycarbonate plastic or stainless steel. These spikes make landing and perching on the roof very difficult thus preventing them from using your roof as a landing and perching zone. The polycarbonate spikes come in different colors to match your roofing thus camouflaging them. Polycarbonate spikes have an advantage over steel spikes that they do not interfere with the TV and radio signals.
Bird Sonics are electronic devices that can be tuned to a particular pitch, frequency and timing to scare off the pigeons from your roof. It emits – rather blasts – a Peregrian Flacon’s call that scares away these pigeons from the roof. It prevents the pigeons from using your roof as a landing, perching or a nesting area.
