Whether you live in a big city, a rural area, or a suburb, you’ve probably grown accustomed to coexisting with pigeons. You see them flying above, walking across crowded streets and sitting side-by-side on lampposts. But do you know the feral pigeon’s history in America? They arrived here as domesticated birds in the 1600s from Europe, escaped, reproduced and now flood many urban and farm areas.
Although we tolerate pigeons, they have become a pest in many areas, causing serious issues and disrupting our day-to-day life. If pigeons nesting in your home or building are causing problems, you may need to contact professional pest control in Baltimore City.
What Problems do Pigeons Cause?
Nuisance pigeons create a mess by defecating on our homes, in our streets, and sometimes even inside buildings. According to the Humane Society of the United States their feces is highly corrosive and contains uric acid, which can be potentially hazardous to humans. Some pigeons even carry diseases, making their feces even more dangerous.
What Can You do About Pigeons?
Installing sharp-angle ledges to discourage roosting is one of the only effective ways to discourage pigeons. Beyond that, there is no effective do-it-yourself solution to getting rid of pigeons. Chasing them away with a broom will only be effective until they return minutes later.
