What can I do about pigeons roosting and defecating on my property?

Regional Animal Services receives many calls each year regarding pigeons roosting or nesting in homes or defecating on property. A pigeon is an unregulated wild animal and therefore is outside the scope of authority of Animal Services.

There are several commercial deterrents that can be utilized to discourage pigeons from calling your property their home. You can contact a local pest control company or a home improvement store for assistance with these deterrents.

However, a simple way to keep pigeons from roosting or nesting on your property is to hang a CD in the area you are having problems.  This inexpensive item could save you a lot of heartache.
