|Bird Removal in Orlando, Florida
Wildlife Patrol is a wildlife
removal business operating in Orlando, FL. Pigeon prevention is a common job we
perform for businesses that have consistent bird problems. Some buildings
attract pigeons to nest and inhabit their attics and these birds can make a
large mess. To stop pigeon problems, we remove the birds if they have entered
the attic, we prevent their re-entry by sealing the building, and lastly install
bird spikes over their roosting areas to keep them away from the building.
|Orlando pigeon control program is designed to make sure
pigeons cannot nest.
Nesting is best treated by excluding Orlando pigeons'
access to desirable areas.
When all the nesting spots have been
treated, you will realize about
a 50-60% chance
that the birds move on.
After nesting treatments, when you treat all the spots on which they are standing, your
odds increase to over 90%
Orlando pigeon control recommends bird trapping and making
sure another flock could not nest
even if they tried.
Pigeons nest where their eggs will not roll and they cannot be removed. This
nesting can nclude against spikes, mesh and
even electric shock systems in Fort Lauderdale.
Pigeons gravitate to the highest perches possible so they can protect themselves
Pigeons prefer to habitat spots where they have protection overhead or at least shade.
Pigeons are familial and breed for life. Orlando pigeons also possess a natural homing instinct.
There is no product or service that can legitimately guarantee pigeons will not stand
on untreated surfaces.
Pigeons are also used to people who feed them seeds, contributing to their increased populations. Florida
pigeons can eat and live on just about any kind of diet, and will crowd out songbirds
that feed near them. Pigeons are daytime critters,
and the birds seek out a safe place to roost every night, and will only
fly at night when disturbed. The important parts of any
pigeon control program is to make sure
pigeons cannot nest.
In today's world, the common structure-dwelling pigeons have become
the avian equivalents of city rodents. "Flying rats," as they have
been described. Unfortunately, forced into this role by man, as much
as by their own natural instincts and habits. First and foremost to
the problem of overpopulation, are the numbers of nooks and crannies
that modern man builds into the exterior of all of his structures,
forming the basic home unit of a pigeon. This means that almost
every bridge or large structure harbors a certain number of these
(or other) birds. Not good.
Pigeons have also become habituated to humans, by being extensively
fed by humans, in almost every culture, which only aggravates the
problem. Pigeons, domesticated for thousands of years, are easily
tamed and handled by humans. It is important to note that NO wild
animals, including wild pigeons, should be fed, at any time, for any
reason, by anyone.
|Orlando Pigeon Control
The most effective control is exclusion. You keep pigeons out
of the attic. This can be a difficult animal problem. Bridges
and complicated buildings offer many areas that Florida pigeons enjoy
roosting on, and depending on how these structures are built, it can
be difficult, if not impossible, to exclude the pigeons.
In certain areas, the use of a toxicant for pigeons is allowed for
the control of pigeons. The 2 most often
used is strychnine and "Avitrol". Both are used exactly to
poison seeds that the birds eat.
|How To Remove Pigeons
First of all, the trapper must be an expert with the pigeons. Study
their habits in the environment you plan to keep the birds away from. The following
are some of the items you must consider:
|What is the food source?
If so, do what you can to end this practice. Feeding pigeons, of
course, only attracts more pigeons. If you have control of the
people feeding the pigeons, exhort them to stop. If they are not
under your control, speak to the parties involved, tell them of your
problems, or enlist a trusted third party to do so. Some people are
inveterate bird feeders and cannot understand that feeding any wild
animal is not wise. The last resort would be the local health
department officials. You should also check with local health
officials about your local laws regarding pigeons.
