Pigeons are extremely smart birds. For centuries, humans are believed to have used these creatures to deliver messages or other navigation purposes. Because of their human interaction, the birds have adapted to become quite comfortable around humans. They have learned to eat human food and can make their nests almost anywhere. For these reasons, many cities have developed a pigeon problem and many residents are looking for solutions to drive these pesky creatures away from their property. Pest Raiders is happy to offer effective pigeon control services for Summerlin and the surrounding areas.
Problems Caused by Pigeons
Pigeons are known to carry viruses and bacteria that can lead to sickness and other health problems for humans.
The droppings from pigeons create an unsightly environment and can trigger asthmatic responses for some people.
Pigeons like to build nests in unlikely places, such as solar panels on rooftops. This can cause damage to the panels and reduce their effectiveness.
The birds are very noisy creatures and become quite a nuisance if they make their homes inconveniently close to people.
Because pigeons are so accustomed to being around people, they can make people uncomfortable by how close they may get when searching for food.
Pigeons can cause damage with their beaks and wings and will often tear things up if they believe they have found a food source.
Since pigeons have an amazing sense of navigation, they often return to a location if they found food or a good place to nest. This can make it difficult to keep them away once they have found these things on your property.
