How to Get Rid Of Alabama Pigeons

Pigeons are one of the most beautiful birds around us. Most people love pigeons but even then don’t allow pigeons in their homes or stores. So you can think why they do so. The reason is that the pigeons can create problems for you, specially their droppings. The droppings of the pigeons contain uric acid which can damage the finish of your building or your vehicle. Other than this pigeons can create many problems so it is better to get rid of them.

The main objective of this article is to help you in getting rid from pigeons and I will suggest you some methods which can be used for this purpose. Pigeons can normally enter from large holes and you have to find these. After finding these holes try to close them permanently or you can use a one way trap, which will not allow the pigeons to enter in the building. You can also use some reflective device which will create noise to keep them away. But these noise making devices can create disturbance for you as well and they will also provide only a short time protection against pigeons.

For a small area you can use bang devices. These devices are easily available and work quite well. With these devices the pigeons will get scared and will leave the building. Pigeons also don’t like the force of water on them. So if they are on such a place where you can spray water on them just to get rid of them, it will work. Some ultrasonic devices are also available to get rid of pigeons, but these devices are costly. So I will suggest you to use them when you are unable to find any other way to get rid of pigeons. These devices can work very well for a comparatively large area.

You can also use the predator birds to frighten the pigeons. If you own such a bird it will work for you, but if you don’t own you can get an artificial hawk to frighten the pigeons. Now just place this artificial hawk at a location where the pigeons live. Pigeons also don’t like certain spices so you can use them to get rid of pigeons. Just sprinkle some pepper or any other spice on the place where they rest. But this is a repeating process and if you don’t sprinkle spices periodically the pigeons will come back.

However the best solution is to use pigeon repellent gel. These gels are cheap and work very well. Just apply these gels to a place where the pigeons rest. Many such gels are available in the market. There two basic categories of gels; one can be used for indoor protection and the other can be used for outdoor protection. Huntsville animal control experts can help you with this.

If you tried many solutions and nothing has worked for you then I will suggest you to use electronic bird repellent. These devices create noise that humans are unable to hear. This is because it is produced at a different frequency, but pigeons will hear this noise. The main advantage of these devices is that they can be used for any type of animal but they are found more effective for all types of birds. With this device the sounds are adjustable and you can select the sound range. I will suggest you to start with a minimum range and then increase the range if the birds are not leaving the building. This is the safest method to get rid of pigeons. But these devices are quite costly. But always remember not to feed the pigeons. If you feed them more and more pigeons will come to your place and you will find it very difficult to get rid of them. So don’t ever feed any pigeon.
