Why You Need Pigeon Control

Pigeons may seem harmless, but it’s important to remember that these birds are scavengers and can grow to be a huge nuisance. To some, pigeons may even seem cute - but these birds can infest your property rapidly. Besides their overwhelming numbers, pigeons can cause a variety of different problems. If you are beginning to encounter pigeon infestations, you need to know the risks that these birds carry with them and how they may impact your property. Below, you will find several different reasons why you might need to consider pigeon control as soon as possible. The best way to protect your property is to be informed and take preventative action against potential infestations.

Pigeons Can Damage Your Property

Pigeons leave huge messes behind them, as they travel and commune in large groups. Their droppings have acidic properties that can destroy the paint or finish of buildings and cars. In addition, the waste that they leave has the potential to clog pipes and inflict fire hazards near electrical wiring. Their droppings can also kill vegetation, so any landscaping work that has been done on your property can be quickly undone by a horde of these birds. 

They Spread Diseases 

Pigeons don’t only pose a threat to your property, they can harm the actual individuals that inhabit that property. It has been discovered that bird droppings contain over 50 diseases that can be transmitted to humans. Their waste can also harbor various fungi that can cause different respiratory problems in people - and some of these illnesses can even become airborne. 


Pigeons are scavengers by nature, which means they have the natural drive to pick around in whatever food sources they can find. If they get too nosy, pigeons can contaminate food and other resources, which may cause serious health risks for other animals and humans. Pigeons can also carry parasites such as lice, fleas and ticks, which can be easily transferred to humans and pets if they get in close contact with these birds.
