Pigeon control for individual homes requires a joint effort between the homeowner and U.S. Pigeon Control. The ideal solution for pigeon control is always a Community Control program; however, when this is not possible, we do have a program that can be effective for your property.
Remove Nesting Birds:If the resident nesters/breeders are not removed, pigeon control is much harder to achieve. For individual homes, U.S. Pigeon Control agents will physically capture or remove the nesting birds only. Once these nesting birds are gone, the remainder of the birds can be moved off your property behaviorally.
Cleanup/Decontamination:Like most animals, pheromones play a big part in the presence of pigeon flocks. Ensuring that your property is cleaned, using our proprietary and all-natural chemical called PheroClean, is an important step to regaining control of your property. It also will get your property back to looking its best.
Exclude Nesting Areas:Eliminating potential or existing nesting spots will prevent a “nesting core” from taking root on your property. This will help considerably in keeping other pigeons from roosting specifically on your property by taking the “leaders” out of the picture.
Behavior Modification:Pigeons roosting on your property is a “behavior”. Where total flock removal is not possible, animal behaviors can be changed with operant conditioning. U.S. Pigeon Control agents can work with you to train you on simple tricks you can do to create and maintain an “invisible fence” around your property.
U.S. Pigeon Control’s commercial services offer the most advanced and effective pigeon control solutions in the world. These services include:
Area Patrol: Pigeon Control Agents will regularly patrol coverage zones identifying any pigeon issues occurring within the service area. Pigeon Control Agents regularly create assessment reports that are used to assign resources to a particular control zone.
Dispatched Response: Pigeon Control Agents can be dispatched to respond to many different calls from the community. Some of these calls include rescue, carcass removal, or individual capture operations.
General Capture/Removal: U.S. Pigeon Control will implement capture and removal operations as often as is necessary to maintain acceptable levels of control for designated service areas. This may include a range of services or assets, including Pigeon-Saver® placement or Special Teams.
Investigation/Reporting: Pigeon Control Agents can be called upon to deal with compliance issues such as intentional feeding or inadvertent feeding. In some cases these investigation reports are used in legal proceedings, evictions or trespass notices.
Compliance Certification: All businesses or communities under the public rates will be issued a Pigeon Control Compliance Certification which can be used as verification that an integrated pigeon control program is in place.
Humane Pigeon Solution
Getting animals to do what you want them to (or don't want them to) do requires a great deal of patience and understanding. Working with the animal (not against it) is the only proven way to modify behavior patterns.
Working with the animal is also the only way to capture them. Before you can get close enough to any animal, they first have to trust you. Once you have established that trust, you can take steps to safely remove them from environments where they are involved in conflicts with humans.
Introducing Behavioral Pigeon Control
Animals (especially a pigeon) have an amazing natural ability to adapt. Even if you are not an experienced animal trainer, you probably already know that addressing the environment will do little to control the undesired actions of these birds. They will simply adapt!
While there are many theories on animal behavior, science has proven that there are only 2 ways to change or control this with any animal: positive or negative reinforcement.
Now take what you’ve just learned about animals and ask yourself why owls, screens, spikes, shock track and poison bait don’t work for pigeon control.
You’re right! It’s because these actions also address only the environment and not the pigeon itself.
Now that we know why typical methods of pigeon control don’t work, how do we apply that knowledge to pigeon problems? U.S. Pigeon Control has the answer and we call it “behavioral pigeon control”. If you would like to know how we can help you to control pigeons, contact one of our experts today!
