Pigeon Control

Effective Pest Bird Control in Brisbane

When you own a home, warehouse, factory or other large building, feral pigeons can rapidly become a problem.
Pigeons were once called “rats with wings” by Woody Allen. The biggest problem is their acidic droppings, which will corrode the metal of your property, while the mess they make with nest material and feathers may create blockages in gutters and drains, resulting in damage from overflows during Brisbane storms. The droppings from pigeons are known to contain some problematic human diseases including psittacosis, salmonellae and pseudo-tuberculosis.

Pesky pigeons favourite roost, is the roof of homes, getting in through cracked or broken tiles or windows, as well as any gaps in your roof. Even on well maintained roofs, pest pigeons may roost under overhangs, on the top of air-conditioning boxes, water tanks, gutters and window ledges, in fact any sheltered ledge.

Pigeon Control including Quality Spikes & Netting

Pigeons have an inbuilt homing mechanism and generally remain around their birth site. If relocated, they will quickly return to their birth home, which is why they can be such a pest and relocation is not a viable option.

It is difficult to provide a high level of control since pigeons are free flying and new birds are always arriving. However, the critical issue is to break the breeding cycle, to ensure new young pigeons are not born at your property. With persistent action, the number of resident pesky pigeons will reduce.

Trapping, treating, bird netting, bird spikes and other bird proofing all have a part to play in pigeon pest control. The key is to remove their access to sheltered areas and places to nest. Have a look at our solar panel page for more information about our special system for proofing around solar panels to get rid of pigeons from nesting underneath the panels.

For best results a combination of both removal and proofing is best. Our experienced pigeon removal servicemen will advise which options will be most effective for your home or business. Unfortunately though once pigeons are removed others that have been born at the site in the past may move back in so you may need to do another round of pigeon control 6 or 12 months in the future to maintain control and ensure the numbers of pigeons don’t quickly increase again.
Our removal options include trapping, treated grain and shooting. The proofing is completed with welded mesh, pigeon spikes and or netting. The netting and pigeon spikes we use are a high quality product with a long life.

Perhaps the fastest and most humane method of eradication is using a specially licensed pigeon shooter. This method is appropriate for some locations, such as warehouses, feed-mills and food factories. It quickly reduces feral pigeon populations, and also encourages them to move to other locations away from human habitation; it has no impact on other native birds that may be nesting in the area.

If you are a tenant, unfortunately we do need the owner’s permission to conduct any proofing work at the property, as it is structural work on the house. We would prefer if the owner is aware of the issue and requests the inspection from us directly so we know they are willing to consider our quote.
