Bird Removal

messy pigeons

Birds, though nice animals, can be the worst of nuisance avian animal pests, especially for commercial property owners. Birds often choose to roost on signs, ledges, or rafters of commercial buildings. This might not be so bad, except for the fact that birds make a horrible mess with their nesting material, and worse, droppings. Pigeon droppings in particular can really accumulate, and are not only unsightly, but a health risk to you, your employees and customers. To the right you will see some pigeons that I captured using standard pigeon traps, placed on the roof of a commercial property where they created a nuisance with their unsightly and disease-ridden droppings.
