Pigeon Pest Control

Pigeons only have one partner and will lay one to two eggs. The eggs will hatch about 18 days after the pigeon lays them. Pigeons can only have babies when it’s time to mate. Pigeons stay with the same partner for their entire lives. Young pigeons are fed pigeon milk, which is made from food that both male and female pigeons have regurgitated. Pigeons can only produce pigeon milk while they are pregnant or nursing. Pigeons can only make pigeon milk when they have babies in their bellies. Even though mating can happen at any time of the year, it usually happens most often in the spring and fall.

For the Santee Pest Control Company experts to be effective, the entire pigeon colony must be removed from the area. So, they use a variety of humane ways to get rid of the animals. Our very experienced staff makes the places where animals roost and nest unsuitable so that animals won’t use them. Some other things that will help are building sloped resting areas, blocking off access to voids, and using devices that stop birds from landing. These will all be helpful. You shouldn’t use scare balloons, plastic birds, or plastic snakes because, for the most part, these things only work for a very short time. On the other hand, they might only be useful for a short amount of time. Pigeons should not be able to get to any food or drink that is left out. This is another important preventive measure. Pigeons like to eat and drink things that are left out in the open. Under no circumstances is it okay to feed pigeons in a place that is used for business. This includes any place open to the public. An expert member of the Santee Pest Control Company team will look at the infestation and come up with treatment plans that fit both your needs and your budget. Santee Pest Control Company also offers cleaning and repair services for places where pigeons or other birds have caused damage. The goal of these services is to fix the damage that the birds have done. It is suggested that a maintenance plan be made for bird control, and it is suggested that this plan be followed once every two or three months. This is done so that the best results can be reached. We also offer services that are only needed for a certain time period or event. If you have any questions about the way we get rid of birds, please give us a call as soon as possible.

A Few Quick Notes on the Way Pigeons Carry Themselves

Habits

Pigeons eat grains as their main source of food, and people often unintentionally feed them by dropping food or putting it out in open trash cans. When they are hungry, pigeons can be mean. Pigeons will eat the grains that humans feed them if they get the chance. Pigeons like to sleep in places that are high off the ground, and if there are steeples around, you can bet that they will build their nests on top of them. Pigeons can also easily build their nests in a number of other high places. Pigeons are known to raise their young in secluded places like holes on the outside of buildings.

Habitats

Pigeons need people to feed them and give them places to sleep and nest because they can’t live without these things. Pigeons also need people to give them places to sleep and food to eat. Like other birds, pigeons need people to provide them with places to sleep. Agricultural districts are often close to a number of different types of industrial infrastructure, like grain elevators, feed mills, and storage facilities. In cities, they can often be found near parks, buildings, bridges, and any other kind of construction. This is especially true in heavily populated areas.

Threats

Pigeons are dirty birds that can be dangerous to your health and cause damage to your property. Their trash is known for speeding up the deterioration of old buildings and monuments and for making accidents more likely to happen to people. This is because it increases the number of bacteria in the environment, which causes the above effect. Pigeons are known to spread a wide range of diseases, with cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, salmonella, and food poisoning being the most dangerous. It has been shown that pigeon droppings can contaminate food. Scientists have shown that pigeon droppings contain germs that can make people sick. In addition, the feces that these animals leave behind could help the histoplasmosis-causing fungus grow. This disease can be spread to people. There are many kinds of parasites that could be living on these birds besides fleas, lice, mites, and ticks. Here are some examples of parasites: There is a good chance that the parasites in question are living in these birds. Nests can also get bugs in them, like those that live in things that have been preserved. This can happen if the nest is not taken care of properly.

Prevention

It is up to property owners to make places where birds of prey and other animals nest and sleep less attractive to those species. As a way to help, we will stop people from getting into voids, make resting areas with slopes, and use technology that stops people from landing. Scare balloons, plastic birds, or plastic snakes rarely work for more than a very short time. Most of the time, these items only work for a few seconds at a time. Do not leave food or drinks out where pigeons could find them, since this gives them access to a possible source of food and water. It is against the law to give pigeons food or water in a public or business setting.
