What are birds?

Warm-blooded vertebrates, birds have two legs and two wings, feathers covering their body, and a beak. Not all birds can fly, but all birds lay eggs. There are many different kinds of birds that live and breed outside and cause us no problems. However, some birds have come to be unwelcome pests; they take over our properties in large numbers, roost on our buildings, and create health hazards.

One of the most common pest birds living in our area is the pigeon. The pigeon grows to between eleven and fifteen inches in length and has a light gray body. Their beak is grayish-pink, and they have two dark bars going across their wings and another dark bar crossing their tail. Pigeons are a common problem in urban areas and on commercial properties.

Are birds dangerous?

A big concern with large numbers of birds living on your property is that their feces contains millions of spores that cause illnesses in people when inhaled. They also introduce disease-transmitting parasites onto the properties they are living on.

Pigeons and other pest birds are also very damaging pests. Their feathers and nests will clog and damage vents, fans, drainage systems, and machinery. Droppings from birds are quite corrosive and will cause physical damage to roofs, gutters, and siding. Slip and fall hazards are also a concern when pigeons and other birds live in large numbers on the tops of businesses. As bird droppings build up, they are not only unsightly but slippery.

Pest birds feed on and destroy farm and garden crops. They can create substantial economic losses within the agricultural industry.

Why do I have a bird problem?

Pigeons are a problem for people and live in large populations across the United States because they are not native and have no natural predators. Over time, pigeons have learned that people equal food and shelter. Their diet is varied, and they will consume a lot of the same foods we do, meaning our properties often offer them plenty of places to forage for food. After eating, they return to their roosting sites. One of their favorite places to roost is on the roofs of commercial buildings.

Where will I find birds?

Pigeons are active during the day when we are, so it is common to see these birds foraging for food in parks, fields, gardens, golf courses, warehouses, on sidewalks, and in parking lots. Commercial buildings often provide pigeons and other birds with a lot of shelter and roosting spots. We often see pigeons on roofs, rafters, steeples, and ledges.
