Frequently Asked Questions

How can I keep pigeons off my AC outdoor unit in our commercial building?

Bird netting can be used to achieve complete exclusion in certain regions. Netting can be put over any A/C system to keep birds out permanently. We can keep pigeons out of an A/C unit that is mounted on a frame by blocking off the underbelly with a heavy-duty galvanised steel screen. The netting can simply be put over the parapet after installing it in a recessed area. The net will last for roughly 5 years if properly maintained.

How can I access the A/C unit(s) once the bird netting is installed?

A system of hooks and cables is used in the application of bird netting. The cable goes around the netting’s perimeter, and each end is connected by a turnbuckle. The perimeter cable is loosening or tightened by the turnbuckle. Larger portions can be equipped with a zipper for access to the netted region. The tension in the cable is reduced by loosening the turnbuckle by unscrewing it.

You can simply lift the net over the desired location after the wire is no longer taut, allowing homeowners and/or service technicians access. When access is no longer required, the net must be reinstalled and the cable tightened using the turnbuckle. Failure to properly secure netting as it was originally erected can result in a fresh flock of pigeons nesting and a buildup of droppings.

Does the scarecrow or scare owl tactic actually work?

No. These devices are ineffectual, despite the fact that they are sold by many merchants and bird control agencies. The birds may react to the presence of a plastic owl, snake, scary eye, etc. for a day or two. The pigeons, however, resume regular behaviour once they realise the “deterring” object is not moving.

How shall I stop pigeons from roosting around my premises?

Pigeons can be deterred from perching on houses with a variety of treatments available to professional pest control officers. These include: When properly placed, bird netting can be completely effective. Nets are available in a variety of sizes. Other species will be excluded as well, including house sparrows, starlings, and feral pigeons. Netting is sometimes available in a variety of colours to match the stonework of the building.

A caulking gun can be used to apply the gel on ledges, which can subsequently be coated with a sealing fluid. This generates an unappealing and unstable surface beneath the bird’s feet, making perching impossible.

Post and wire are tried and true solutions that can be used on window ledges and ridges to keep birds from acquiring a grip.

Spike and point systems are simple to install and consist of strips with various arrangements of upright metal or plastic pins to deter birds from landing on the surface. They are especially effective on decorative structures.

What do I do if the birds build a nest in my chimney?

Install a specially designed chimney cowl on the chimney pot to prevent birds from building the nest inside the chimney. These are simple to set up and cost little money. If the chimney is no longer in use, a chimney cap may be an option. Pigeons do not build nests in chimney pots, but jackdaws do. Before taking any precautionary actions, make sure that the breeding time has ended.

What is the Humane method of getting rid of Pigeons quickly?

Pigeons, let’s face it, have acidic faeces, a bullying attitude toward other birds, and a proclivity for disease transmission. They seem to like roosting in every available open space in your garden. Here are some of the effective techniques used to control pigeon roosting and nesting that you can use right now in your own home.

  • Use reflective surfaces
  • Install anti-roosting spikes
  • Use pigeon repellent gel and apply it to roosting areas
  • Install a pigeon net

Which pigeon deterrent device is the most effective?

Pigeon scare devices, such as motion-activated noise deterrents are quite successful at keeping pigeons out of warehouses. Combine these gadgets with other deterrents such as

  • Spikes.
  • Gels and Pastes.
  • Optical Gels.
  • Ultrasound Devices.
  • Plastic Owls.
  • Reflective Discs.
  • Fogs and Vapors.

What are pigeons afraid of?

Windchimes, aluminium foil pans (as used in fast food), flashy rubber snakes, and balloons are all things that pigeons dislike. Pigeons can be deterred by using commercial gel bird repellents, but they must be renewed on a regular basis.

What are the different smells that pigeons hate?

Pigeons, in fact, have a keen sense of smell that they utilise to navigate. Vinegar, hot and chilli peppers, cologne, perfume, garlic, peppermint essential oil, black pepper, onions, ghost peppers, cinnamon, cumin, and even jalapenos are all aromas that pigeons despise.

How can I keep pigeons away from my garden?

Birds aren’t fussy when it comes to food. Seeds, grains, berries, breadcrumbs, worms, and other foods are among their favourite foods.

  • Use a scareowl or hawks and crows as decoys. You can also use fake snakes that may scare the birds away.
  • To scare the birds, use old CDs as sparkling reflective objects.
  • To protect your crops, buy or manufacture bird nettings out of cord or wire.
