About PigeonsPigeons hold the dubious title of the number one pest bird the country. Domesticated over two thousand years ago, pigeons are unafraid of people and readily adapt to an urban environment. Because their droppings contain an acidic component that is highly corrosive, pigeons can cause a great deal of damage to your property in a short amount of time.
Getting rid of pigeons on your own isn't easy. The birds have an inbred homing instinct that causes them to feel attached to a particular site. Mating pairs can hatch as many as four broods a year, quickly turning a small pigeon problem into a major disaster. Because pigeons will resort to laying eggs on bare surfaces if need be, getting rid of pigeons isn't as simple as removing their nests. Fortunately, Bird Barrier offers a number of bird control products that can effectively resolve any pigeon problem.
Bird Barrier's Bird-Coil is an easy-to-install bird control product that provides an effective deterrent against pigeons roosting on ledges, window sills, eaves and signs. Consisting of loops of coiled stainless steel, Bird-Coil makes is a humane barrier that makes it difficult for pigeons to land. BirdSlide is a bird control barrier that creates 45-degree on eaves and ledges, visually and physically deterring pigeons.
From our Screech Owl plastic product that rotates and transmits noises that sound like the screech of a hawk to the Bird-Shock Flex-Track product that deters birds by giving them an electric shock when they land, Bird Barrier has the right solution for every application. Our expert field representatives are happy to work with you to help you find the answer to your pigeon problem and to provide you with any technical support that you may need to get the job done.
Pigeon IdentificationThe feral Pigeon is the number one urban pest bird. Large numbers exist in every city across the country. Not a native bird, feral Pigeons are descendants of domestic homing pigeons brought over from Europe and released here in the 1600s. They were domesticated from the wild rock doves from the sea cliffs of Europe by the Romans over two thousand years ago. Several traits have allowed them to dominate the urban landscape. Because of their history, Pigeons are not afraid of people; they roost and nest readily in man made structures and they have a diverse diet. The standard Pigeon has a short neck with a small head. Their short legs with the level front and hind toes allow them to perch on branches as well as walk on flat surfaces.
The feral Pigeon is generally blue-gray with a white rump; has iridescent feathers on head and neck; two broad black bars across each wing and a broad dark band across the end of the tail. They also can display white, brown or gray plumage.
