How To Keep Pigeons Away From Your Home

Pigeons are not the type of bird you want close to your home. They will make quite a mess in their wake, and they will try to get any food they think is edible. Pigeons aren't exactly picky when it comes to food, so even trash left out is going to be annihilated by these pests. To keep them away, there are things you can do that can deter these pests and keep them from your home, yard, or patio. Read on for helpful tips on pigeon control.

Set Out Decoys

Using decoys is one of the best things you can do to keep these pests at bay. You can set out decoys, such as a statue of an owl or a hawk. These will be the best to use. Be sure to move the decoys often or get decoys that move on their own. They could move their heads or flap their wings in the wind. You should move them around your yard, balcony, or patio to prevent the pigeons from realizing that the decoy is not a real animal. Decoys can be found online, or you can find them at some hardware stores.

Set Up Deterrents

Other deterrents can also be used, such as plastic spikes to prevent these and other birds from being able to land, or you can set out a deterrent that makes noise when it senses motion from a pigeon. The loud noise will send the pigeons away. Other deterrents can also be used, such as a windsock or a flag. The motion may help to deter these pests, although they may only work in smaller areas such as a balcony. 

Hire A Pest Control Expert

Hire a pest control company to help you set up your yard, balcony, or patio to deter these pests from coming back to your home. These pests can leave quite a mess in their wake and prevent you from enjoying the outdoors. They can help you get rid of these pests in a humane way and prevent them from returning. 

If pigeons are ruining your outdoor fun, hire a pest control expert to help you get back to enjoying your time outside. Use the tips above to help you as well, but if your deterrents and decoys aren't getting the job done, it will be best to hire a professional to ensure it is done correctly and humanely.
