Nuisance birds can be tough to eliminate and nuisance pigeons are
historically harder to control than other birds. The reasons for this
are numerous but main reasons are their sheer numbers, IQ (4!) and their
strong nesting instincts. These nesting instincts make it imperative
that all nests, nesting materials, etc. are removed at the start of your
Orlando pigeon control program. This also means that a combination of devices
is usually needed to keep pigeons out of unwanted areas for good.
As you can see, it is best to use an audible with a visual, a
visual with physical roost deterrents or a combination of visual
devices. Rarely will one visual device scare away unwanted pigeons or
other nuisance birds when used alone. The exception to this rule is
when dealing with small numbers of sparrows or woodpeckers. In these
cases, Orlando pigeon trapping used alone can solve the problem - but not when dealing
with pigeons! Choose the combination of products that you feel best
suites your problem.
Salmonellosis often occurs as "food poisoning" and can be
traced to pigeons, starlings and sparrows. The disease bacteria are
found in bird droppings; dust from droppings can be sucked through
ventilators and air conditioners, contaminating food and cooking
surfaces in restaurants, homes and food processing plants.
Salmonellosis is a common bacterial infection caused by any of more than
2,000 strains of Salmonella.
Besides being direct carriers of disease, nuisance birds are
frequently associated with over 50 kinds of ectoparasites, which can
work their way throughout structures to infest and bite humans. About
two-thirds of these pests may be detrimental to the general health and
well-being of humans and domestic animals. The rest are considered
nuisance or incidental pests. A few examples of ectoparasites include:
Pigeon Trapping and Prevention in Orlando Florida
Anti-roosting bird spikes prevent pigeons from perching on
your property without injury. Our patented pigeon spikes for Orlando
pigeon prevention are simply glued onto any window, pipe or ledge where pigeons
roost; the dense pattern of protruding pins make it impossible for
pigeons to land, encouraging them to go elsewhere without hurting them.
Pigeon spikes are virtually invisible once installed and provide the
ultimate pigeon deterrent.
Pigeon control is usually required when unwanted pigeons decide to
roost or nest on the ledges of your building.
Here at Orlando pigeon trapping, our bird experts manufacture pigeon pest control spikes that are
ideal as a "Roost Modification Device". Roost modification means
changing the ledges of a building in such a way that pigeons no longer
wish to land on them.
The changing of ledges by applying anti-roosting spikes is a very humane
method of Orlando pigeon prevention.
This is because the spikes do not actually hurt the pigeons; they simply
act as a physical barrier, preventing pigeons from landing.
Other pigeon pest control techniques, that involve killing, usually fail
as new Orlando pigeons will quickly move into the area. All in all
we believe our pigeon control spikes to be the most effective, Florida pigeon control solution available.
We are often asked why we do not recommend killing pigeons as a form
of pest control? Take the example of a store with a severe pigeon
control problem; Imagine that nuisance pigeons are roosting above the
store entrance on signs, windows, pipes and other ledges lets say 50
pigeons are the culprits which are part of a flock of 200 birds in the
Now a flock size is always directly proportionate to the amount of
available food in that area. Should the quantity of food available
reduce then the pigeons control their breeding habits so that their
numbers reduce back to a level sustainable by the amount of available
Should a store holder arrange for pigeon control in the form of killing
the 50 nuisance pigeons then the remaining pigeons will almost
immediately increase their breeding and replace the 50 pigeons that have
been killed, within months.
