Identify Your Pest >>

Regardless of where your business is located, there are bound to be pigeons. These birds are recognized around the world and their appearances may vary by region, but their threats to human health remain the same, underscoring the importance of commercial pest control.

After all, pigeons can be unsightly to many potential customers, especially if your venue offers food. Pigeons have adapted to urban living and are comfortable with carrying out their lives in close proximity to humans. This is due to a variety of reasons, including a high availability of food sources and access to nesting areas within buildings.

Understand the risks

Pigeons carry many diseases, including cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, food poisoning, salmonella and more, according to the National Pest Management Association. Additionally, their droppings can cause damage to structures and health through a fungus that causes histoplasmosis. Handling pigeon fecal matter requires professional pest control services such as those from Abell Pest Control. Avoiding the many problems introduced by a pigeon infestation begins with basic pest prevention.

Keep pigeons away

Though you most likely can't alter the exterior of your building and eliminate potential roosting spots for pigeons, you can lower the likelihood of their nesting by limiting their food sources. Pigeons are often fed by humans and settle in the area. Post signs around your establishment asking visitors not to feed the wildlife. Additionally, replace any open trash containers with ones that have lids. This will ensure that the birds don't have easy access to food.

There are many products that can keep pigeons from nesting, such as pigeon wire. However, these can be detrimental to the overall aesthetic of the building. These should be considered if the structure has a history of playing home to these winged pests.

Regardless of whether or not pigeons have roosted, you should check the walls and roof for any holes that may have developed. If pigeons do wind up living on the exterior of the building, you want to ensure that they won't be able to gain access to your venue.

If pigeons are already a problem at your commercial establishment, reach out to Abell Pest Control. These pest control experts will pinpoint the source of the problem and resolve the issue quickly and effectively. Additionally, they'll provide you with further information on how to best keep them away from your property for good.
