So you may have noticed some pigeon droppings on the ground recently by the front door or along the side of the house and thought nothing of it until one day you looked up and discovered, lo and behold, you appear to have pest birds all over your house.

Pigeon problems are very common in Arizona. They could be loafing on your roof, roosting under your eave overhangs, or they could even be nesting under your solar panels. At this point, like many of us, you are searching the internet for terms like pest pigeon control, pigeon control, or bird control attempting to learn how to get rid of pest pigeons from your home.

Why Do I Have Pigeons or Pest Birds?

Before you overload on all of the internet searches learning about pigeon control spikes, pigeon exclusion netting, bird wire systems, and pigeon control shock track systems, and many other pest bird or pigeon control deterrent products on the market today, you need to understand why the pigeons are on your home or office building. Why the birds are on your house, and how many are on your house, is called bird pressure.

Learning about the different types of bird pressures and how to counter act the them will lead you to discover how to get rid of the pigeons or pest birds from your property.

The Three Categories of Pest Bird Pressure

Light Pest Bird Pressure

• The pest birds or pigeons are just loafing or sitting on your roof top, ridge cap, or parapet walls as a nice place to rest, take in the afternoon sun, watch for food, or be close by to their nesting sites.
• A light pressure site is a take it or leave it site and does not have any pigeon nesting areas.

Getting rid of pest pigeons from a light pressure area is a simple task.

• You can usually apply some type of pigeon control product like bird control spikes, bird coil, bird tension wire or even a low voltage bird shock track system along the parapet wall, roof top tiles, ledges, or tile ridge areas the pigeons are roosting on to make them move away from their preferred spot.
• It may be as easy as cleaning up your dog food or asking the neighbor to do the same.
• If the pest birds or pigeons are getting water from somewhere around your home or pool, figure out how to stop the birds’ access to that water source.

Medium Pest Bird Pressure

• Pest birds and pigeons are a little more committed to these medium pressure sites.
• Medium pressure sites are where the pest birds or pigeons know they have good chances of getting food or observing food opportunities, like on a parapet wall above or near the outside dining area.
• They are fairly committed to these sites but don’t nest or roost here.

Getting rid of pest pigeons from a medium pressure area is usually fairly easy.

• You can usually apply some type of pigeon control product like bird control spikes, bird coil, bird tension wire or even a low voltage bird shock track system along the parapet wall, roof top tiles, ledges, or tile ridge areas the pigeons are roosting on to make them move away from their preferred spot.
• Sometimes it is as easy as cleaning up the food, closing the trash lids, or removing anything the birds are hanging out for.
• If the pest pigeons or birds are getting water somewhere on your property, block the access to the water to stop the birds or pigeons from waiting there.

Heavy Pest Bird Pressure

• Pigeons and pest birds are very committed to these heavy pressure sites.
• They most likely have protected overnight nesting and roosting areas on the roof, under overhangs, under HVAC units, or under solar panels.
• They may be habituated, meaning they may have been born at this location, or have lived there a long time and would consider it home.
• These heavy pressure sites are always the hardest places to get rid of pigeons or pest birds from.
• Always be aware that just because you have excluded pigeons or pest birds from one place does not mean they will not move to other protected sites on the roof.
• It is critical that all possible nesting sites be excluded so pigeons do not remain on your roof.

Getting rid of pest pigeons from a heavy pressure area is much more involved.

• You can usually apply some type of pigeon control product like bird control spikes, bird coil, bird tension wire or even a low voltage bird shock track system along the parapet wall, roof top tiles, ledges, or tile ridge areas the pigeons are roosting on to make them move away from their preferred spot.
• Bird netting or galvanized screening material (not chicken wire) can be used to close off the protected sites and exclude the pigeons or pest birds from their nesting sites long term.
• Bird spikes should only be used for window ledges, parapets, tops of beams, or pillars and not stuffed into a roof overhang or the pest birds will simply build their nest between the spikes.
• If pigeons or pest birds are nesting under the roof line overhangs, the area should be cleaned out of all the nesting materials and any other debris and disinfected before closing off.

Now you should have a better idea of why they are on your roof.

Now you’ve got the knowledge of what to look for on your home or business to get a better understanding of what the pest birds or pest pigeons are doing. Therefore, when you are searching the internet for how to get rid of pigeons or pest birds, you can consider the reason the pigeons are on your roof in the first place. This will give you a clear idea of the type of pigeon control or pest bird solutions you should be looking at.
