Trying to Control pigeons and other birds on the roof top or exterior buildings areas often requires quiet a considerably amount of effort. We find that the most effective and long lasting methods of control involve structural modifications which will either physically excludes the birds or pigeons from their preferred roosting or nesting surface or making it difficult for the birds to rest comfortably on the exposed building surfaces.

We have put together a list below and some detail information on many of the available bird or pigeon deterrent products that are available to us to help stop your birds and pigeons from making a mess on your home or business.

Our Pigeon Removal and Bird Control Deterrents

Pigeon Control Spike


Bird control spike is best used as a ledge deterrent. Stainless steel bird spike holds up to the Arizona heat better than the cheap plastic spike. Bird spike is a good deterrent for pigeons and larger birds but not small birds. When using bird spike be aware that sparrows may nest in the spike.

Best used for ledges against pigeons and larger birds

Bird Control Netting


Bird control and pigeon control netting is used for total bird exclusion by creating an envelope birds can’t get into. Bird net needs to be supported by a cable or some sort of preminitor support system. Depending on type or size of bird will determine the netting needed. Pigeon net is 2″ squares, Starling net is 1 1/8″, Sparrow net is 3/4″. Netting comes in Black or Tan, black is the preferred color since it holds up better in the Arizona sun and heat. Tan net can be used under canopies or out of the sun.

All birds can be control using bird netting if installed correctly

Bird Control Screening


Galvanized screening can be used to securely close off roof line overhangs, tops of pillars and many other places for long term control. We use this same material for closing off under or around Solar Panels using special solar panel panel clips and attachments we custom build to hold the screen in place. We can paint to blend the screen and screw down all our screen unlike some companies that just staple the screen to the facia board.

Most birds in small to medium sized places, around solar panels depending on the area.

Solar Panel Pigeon Screening


Our solar panel pigeon deterrent screening system is designed to prevent pest birds from accessing the area beneath solar arrays. Pest birds like pigeons will nest under the solar array, creating a huge mess, causing damage and costly repairs and clean-up. Protect wiring systems, solar panels and your roof with our solar panel pigeon deterrent screening. We use galvanized material to close off around Solar Panels using special solar panel clips and attachments we custom build to hold the screen in place.

Most birds and pigeons from under or around solar panels depending on the area.

Pigeon Control Shock Track Systems


Think of a dog or cattle shock fence but for birds. A Shock track system provides a mild but very effective very low profile solution to birds like pigeons when their feet make contact with the 2 stainless steel braided wires. Power is supplied to the shock track by a plug-in charger or a solar powered charger.

Good for low profile solutions on ledges, parapet walls and other places.

Pigeon Post & Wire or Pin & Wire Systems


Stainless steel post are spaced no more than 5 feet apart with a thin braided stainless steel wire run between post which creates an unstable area for pigeons to stand on. Usually have to use several rows depending on width of ledge. A single row can be used when running along a cable or pipe.

Good for pigeons but smaller birds can easily stand on the wire

Daddi Long Legs or Bird Spider


The arms wave gently in the breeze and as pigeon fly to land they hit the waving arms and leave. Works good on light poles, Ac units and chimney caps as long as you don’t have a real fire in the chimney or the DDL will melt..

Good for pigeons and other bigger birds

Bird Deterrent Coils


Looks like a big slinky when stretched out. Bird coils create and un-stable landing surface that most bigger birds like pigeons don’t like and will avoid parapet walls where these are installed. Bird coil provides a very low visibility solution to parapets and other types of ledges.

Good for ledges, parapet walls against pigeons

Woodpecker Scare Spider


Looks like a holloween toy but is very effective at scaring away woodpeckers as the make any type of drumming sound. Hang up a scare spider off of a facia board and when the wood pecker starts to drum the scare spider drops about 2′ on a string scaring the woodpecker. The scare spider then works it way back up the string moving its legs as it goes.

Useful if placed near where Gila Woodpecker are pecking or drumming

Eagle Eyes Bird Reflectores


Let the sun help scare away your birds. The Eagle Eye is an optical bird scarer device that harmlessly deters birds from unwanted areas by making use of light beams reflected from direct sunlight or artificial light. The light beam reflected back by the eagle Eye disorients birds in flight by limiting their vision significantly.

Good for pigeons and gulls

Flock Reflectors


Use on parapet walls and other places where the sun reflects back at the bird to disorient the bird, much like the Eagle eye. Should be use in conjunction with other deterrent products or hazing systems.

Use for pigeons and sometime other birds depending on placement location.

OvoControl- Pigeon Birth Control Pellets


OvoControl P is a ready to use bait that controls the reproduction of treated birds, causing the population to decline. Ovocontrol interferes with egg hatchability. Since no new birds are hatching, the population declines. We see as much as an 80% decline over 24 months. OvoControl is used with an auto feeder at the rate of 1 lb per 80 birds per day. If the pigeons stop eating the pellets they become fertile again.

Used for pigeons

Pigeon Control Chemical Hazing Systems


The system works by inhalation and irritation of the respiratory system and the birds soft tissue membranes, without any risk to the birds or peoples health. M.A. is a grape extract that when turned into a mist even in small doses repels most larger birds like pigeons, but is not as effective on small birds. Use in hangars, food courts, shopping malls, product processing plants, and other open air places to reduce the current population. It does leave a slight grape scent in the air.

Repels pigeons when they fly into areas with MA in the air.

Pigeon Control Slide or Pigeon Bird Control Slope


Made of UV stabilized polycarbonate materials. Bird slide or bird slope completely protects the ledge against all birds species; they simply can’t get a grip on the 45 degree angle and slide off. There are also extension that can be added to protect wider ledges like in parking structures. When the product is reversed and placed along the wall and ceiling they provide a very good barrier to stop Swallows from from nesting by breaking up the angle.

Protects against most bird species including swallows

Pigeon Live Trapping


A very reliably way of reducing the current resident population of pigeons from most sites as long as there is a flat or slightly pitched roof available. Many times trapping will reduce a very large flock of pigeons to a few in a number of months. Pigeon trapping is a good way to reduce the size of a flock of resident birds when they are attached to or have been nesting on a building for a long time. Some times even after non-lethal deterrents have been installed pigeons will not leave.

Pigeons are flocking birds and traps provide a good stand alone option, most times.

Sparrow Live Trapping


Sparrows are a tuff little bird to trap which is why there are a lot of different styles for the same place. Some traps use sound to attract and others use seed bait. Places like big box stores have sparrow problems and it is never an easy or one time fix since they leave the doors wide open and have food inside that attracts the sparrows to the inside.

Sparrows take time to live trap and find the correct trap to use.

Warehouse Bird Control Screen Doors


Large vented warehouse screen doors that slide open and then can be closed to prevent birds coming into the warehouse through the open door. The screen are a coated rubberized mater with lost of holes air flows in and out and from the insides looking out you can easily see through the screen. The doors slide on rollers that are inside of a metal track for long term use.

Warehouse screen doors come in all sorts of widths / heights and wall attachments

Bird Control Visual Deterrents


Like the plastic owls visual bird deterrents come in all sorts of designs and styles There are reflector streamer tape, scare eye balloons (shown), bird reflector diverters, holographic owls and other such things. We have yet to see most any of this work on their own, but used along side other more proven methods many time will help.

We use the flash flags, reflectors or holographic tape with scare spiders for Gila Woodpeckers

Bird Control Audio Deterrents


Sound systems usually make distress calls or predator and hawk calls to scare off unwanted birds. Sound systems are very loud and are best not used around public places, up on a 5 story building roof top or blasting over a mines over flow pit or retention area can sometimes be helpful.

Plug-in units and solar powered units are available

Bird Control Gels


Bird gels have been around for 50 plus years in all different formulations and when it comes down to it they do not work. Bird gels create a sticky mess and when the larger birds walk through it they just move the gel around, small birds when they walk in it get stuck and die all covered in a sticky mess. Gels get covered in dust or dirt after a short time and the Arizona heat breaks down the gel and it can start to run.

Bird gels are a short term solution that will work if your lucky about 30 days

Bat Excluder Cones


Bats like small tight places, when doing exclusion bat work we never want to just close off the area and let the bats die. Bat cones at placed at points along the gaps we are sealing so that when night come the bats will find their way out through the bat cone but because its at an angle the bats can not climb back up the cone. Hopefully they relocate to another building if we got all the access spots. After a time when the bats are gone the cones can be removed and sealed.

Excludes Bats and some smaller birds

Plastic Owls or Plastic Falcons

no-imagePlastic owls or plastic hawks do not work, maybe for like two seconds but not long term. They do not work, they do not work, they do not work, they do not work, they do not work – how many times do we need to say it?

They look tacky and they don’t work. DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT WASTING YOUR MONEY ON THESE…
