You own or manage a stunning apartment building complex or condominium that you know is doing great business. You also know that when clients buy this kind of beautiful apartment with an amazing view that overlooks the city, especially in an urban center, where real estate prices are high and maintenance is costly, the very last thing they want to see is pigeon droppings all over their balcony or courtyard.
The fact is that pigeons are extremely well-adapted creatures. The reason they proliferate even in urban areas, which may not seem too hospitable to wild bird populations, is because they’ve learned how to ingest scraps, fight off diseases caught from vermin, and breed incessantly to grow their own numbers. Rather than being stupid, as the term “birdbrain” suggests, they are surprisingly intelligent, and have been shown in tests and experiments to be able to organize pebbles by colour, shape, and size when trained. They’ve also been used throughout human civilization as letter carriers, and fancy pigeons have been bred to develop unique and astonishing physical qualities like large feathers, bushy tails, and so on.
Now, while all this doesn’t necessarily mean that you want them damaging your property, annoying your clients, or causing mayhem in large flocks, it does mean that they deserve respect and humane treatment. To get rid of your issues once and for all in the most humane way possible, look into bird control services with Pigeon Busters, because they have years of experience as specialists in this field.
Some of the ways that professionals will handle your problem is by strategically, professionally, and carefully installing one or more of the following options:
- Nets that deter the birds
- Spikes that keep them from landing
- Bird-friendly glass
- Electrical tracks
When you begin to take notice of the pigeons around you, be sure to study the cause of the entire problem rather than only its symptoms, and remember that an issue like this is best taken care of immediately, before the birds get out of control and become even more difficult to manage.
