Bird Control: Pigeons and Doves

Are you having difficulties keeping flocks of birds away from your property? Are you feeling overwhelmed dealing with their annoying cooing sounds or messes they leave behind? The Bug Guys Pest Control is pleased to provide bird control services to the Coachella Valley and surrounding areas. Birds can be great for spotting as a hobby, but not every bird is cherished among homeowners and business owners. Wild pigeons, also known as rock doves, are the number one pest problem in urban areas today. Because they tend to live in communal flocks, pigeons that have taken up residence in many of the places, we too, call home including on ranches, farms or backyards. Pigeons and doves can become quite the nuisance. But effective bird control services can solve the problem. Bird removal services are among the most popular specialties provided by the Bug Guys Pest Control for both residential and commercial customers throughout the greater Indio area.

Bird Pests Found Around Indio

Pigeons and doves remain as the top two annoyances for birds in the area. While doves can be a nuisance, pigeons are perhaps more so. The lifespan of the pigeon can exceed 15 years, which is an incredibly long time for a bird. However, in urban areas, their life span is decreased to only 3-4 years.

Pigeons can damage as well as bring disease to your property. Known for not being the cleanliest bird, they have a habit of depositing their feces anyplace they are standing, making all areas of your property their private restroom. This build-up of uric acid in this substance not only causes damage to metal railings, fences and rooftop but can also cause gutters and drains to back up when it rains, damaging roofs and causing flooding.

Needless to say, it's not very pleasant to live or work at a place where the sidewalks, pathways, driveways or parking lots are filled continuously with bird droppings. In addition, this accumulation of bird droppings can cause severe slip and fall injuries leading to legal liability, as well as create a less than desirable image and rapidly declining property values.

Perhaps the most troublesome feature of having a flock of pigeons on your property is the bacteria they carry. The bacteria present in pigeon droppings also can invite a host of diseases that can adversely affect both human and pet residents of the properties where pigeons have taken roost. In fact, a pigeon can carry up to 50 different strains of diseases, that are harmful to humans. Pigeons and doves will not only take over the outdoors of your property but can also make their way inside. Imagine having to deal with the same amount of pigeon droppings inside your home or office as you would outside. This can be a serious issue and one that needs to be remedied quickly.

Preventing Pigeons or Doves From Calling Your Property Home

To fight off pigeons or doves from making a nest on your property, there are preventative measures you can take. One of the best ways to approach the situation is making the area inhospitable for the birds. Removing food sources is one of the key ways for the birds to get the hint they aren’t welcome.
