It’s very likely that you walk by pigeons on a daily basis, whether in the parking lot at the grocery store or flying around the park nearby your home. While you probably don’t pay attention to these birds while out and about, all of that can change when they make a home nearby yours. From perching on your roof to making a mess on your car, it’s easy to see why getting rid of these birds can become a priority. Some of the top management tips to help you take control are listed below.
1. Clean Up Garbage and Cover Up Trash
Pigeons are attracted to food sources that they can rely on, which means they may hang around for quite a long time if they can regularly find healthy food outside of your home. To help with this, make sure to keep garbage covered in a trash can and clean up any food droppings you might find outside.
2. Install a Plastic Predator Bird
In the area where the pigeons normally congregate, install a plastic owl or hawk. These are predatory birds that pigeons are naturally scared of, which may give them a reason to hang out elsewhere. However, keep in mind that due to the fact that these statues don’t move, some pigeons may not be scared off as others.

Tips for Identifying a Pigeon Problem
– Appearance of Nesting Materials
If you see nesting materials such as small twigs, then this could be a sign of pigeons or other birds. This will usually appear on the ledge of your home or inside of a gutter (which would cause a blockage during rainy weather).
– Increased Bird Droppings
One surefire sign of a pigeon problem is the increased prevalence of bird droppings on your roof, sidewalk, car, and driveway.
