Pesky Birds

Pigeons and Other Pest Birds

Pesky birds are one of the most dangerous and hazardous to our health. That is why we need some action to exterminate these problem pest pigeons. Many people and some countries in the world are not happy in the presence of the pigeons and other birds species. Pigeons are now considered as a pest birds not as a pets. Exterminating pigeons in a violent ways are not agreeable in some pet lovers but there are many easy ways in controlling and exterminating these problem pest birds. Pigeon extermination in a humane ways are very easy to find and apply. First, the birds are annoying because they deposit their droppings on buildings, benches, statues and cars. This is not only unsightly and smell, also causes permanent stains or premature corrosion and oxidation of some metal structures and other objects. Moreover, their nests can clog water chutes. On the other hand, from the health point of view, birds can carry pathogens and can transmit diseases such as histoplasmosis, ornithosis, salmonellosis and cryptococcosis. They are also hosts several ectoparasites: Cimex columbarius (bug nest of the dove), Argas relexus (tick dove) Pseudolynchia canariensis (dove flies), fleas, mites, spiders, etc.. That is why Pigeons are considered now as a pest birds. Many experts and companies offers different pigeon repellent, bird spikes, bird control products and pigeon control experts. they offer they service and products in controlling these pesky birds. They also offers procedures on how to exterminate pigeons.

Pigeons are considered by much of the population and pest birds as of now, however, at present, the bird plague more dangerous to humans. They are found both in cities and rural areas. In cities, pigeons congregate in masses that can reach several hundred individuals. They fly in groups and lie together. They usually have a preference for large buildings to land, although in some cases, small groups dwell on individual houses. They use the bridges, buildings, statues, etc.. as roosting areas, resting and nesting. In rural areas live in the backyards of farms, stables, barns, towers, etc.. In general, pigeons are animals that tend to feed, nest and rest in the same places routinely at sites located in upland areas and protected. Normally feed on garbage and food scraps, which are at your fingertips. An adult pigeon consumes about half a kilo of food a week. To facilitate digestion ingested with food grains of sand or gravel to help grind food. Pigeons build nests any material advantage from his own excrement, sticks, paper clips, wire or even other skeletons of dead pigeons. They have a great dependence on water. In fact an adult pigeon can survive without breaking down for several days without solid food, but they need water every day. The young are fed by a kind of white substance regurgitated by their parents. After 4 to 6 weeks the young leave the nest. Mating can occur any time of year, but in spring and autumn are reproduced with special intensity. In town, to find good nesting, breed steadily throughout the year. In the wild live to 15 years or more. However in urban areas rarely exceed 5 years. They are birds that tend to move routine, breed and feed always around the same areas. These birds are now a pest in Argentina and some countries in the world. In pigeon bird control methods there are many diferent kinds of products and solution in controlling pigeon pest.

Pigeon Extermination

Pigeon birds are a public health risk for several reasons. They damage and contaminate food with their droppings and feathers. They have health effects, since they carry more than 60 diseases associated (although not considered as vectors), such as salmonellosis, ornithosis, Cryptococcosis, Hialoplasmosis and allergic alveolitis. They can act (both they and their droppings) as reservoirs of pathogens that affect humans and pets. They are carriers of ectoparasites such as ticks, fleas, lice, etc. Pigeon bird droppings are very slippery on the pavement, especially when it rains, being the cause of accidents and also cause other problems such as create dirt with their droppings, and contain acidic substances that are very aggressive in building materials such as stone and cause corrosion on metal surfaces. The seagulls can bring special problems causing noise nuisance, making lots of garbage and excrement, damage to buildings, and even attack people and pets causing this adverse effect against tourism. There are many kinds of pigeon extermination methods and bird control products out there which is offer with different bird control companies that are highly effective and very efficient in controlling with those problem pest birds that are damaging and cost us thousand of dollars in mantaining and repairing our properties. There are also pigeon extermination experts or pigeon exterminator that we can deal to do the pest treatments or we can do it in our selves. The most importand thing in controlling pigeons or any other spicies of pest birds is to find and know what kind of spicies are they before we move and take an action for them.  

Depending on the pressure he is under to protect the site.
To determine the type of pressure from birds to do a delicate exploration and consider a series of questions such as:
- Why use this place to land?
- Birds nest in place?
- Spending the night there?
- Is it a place from which to make out their lunch or occasionally perch?

Therefore pressure is defined by the number of birds that come to the site concerned and for what they do are there, being able to distinguish three types of pressure:
Low pressure: Are those areas where birds are occasionally. They are often quite exposed such as railings or parapets (top of a balcony or balustrade). These areas can be treated with almost any type of product. Average pressure: Are those areas that are regularly used for perching birds. They are usually near where they feed. They are used normally during the day. The birds will try again to overcome these areas and prevention systems, so they must be robust enough. If the birds can not return to these places, and will be the closest. In these areas it is advisable to use network systems, or barbed wires carefully. When using the wire system would be desirable to reduce the population through trapping.
High blood pressure: Are those areas used by birds for the night and nest. The birds showed a great persistence in wanting to go back to them despite being placed exclusion systems useless by many protection schemes. In these cases the only systems are networks, but also skewers the system can work, but would improve with an entrapment of the population. If allowed, it could eliminate some birds with a rifle, if that can not be caught. These areas are often very sheltered places and have a great pile of excrement. Here are located nesting sites, being in the case of pigeons can be anywhere, with little backup material. Depending on the type of pressure that the birds carry these or other measures taken, one building may be subjected to various kinds of pressure. Some of these pigeon bird control methods include such as baits with narcotics. Chemicals are mixed with food. These chemicals have the active material and alfacloralosa seconal. With this substance get numb to the bird so we can remove it. But it presents many drawbacks. You may take any other animal. It is difficult to estimate the dose, because they must eat enough to numb them. In short, this pigeon extermination method is also useful but complicated.

This is a possible measure which is commonly used with pigeons. Pigeon bird control method is merely figurative, because while not remove the food source or access is not impeded, the birds will continue coming to these places. This method is very useful and effective, such as spikes or wires, and animals that pigeons are very persistent and try to go to places that have been treated so they can be trapped in cages. These cages should be placed in quiet places and it is vital that people "with good intentions" do not release the birds. It is necessary to put food in (Pre-Fatten), and leaves the door open to catch the pigeon familiarity from 5 to 10 days. After this time, special doors down, but that let out. Pigeons are left trapped for several days to serve as a claim to other, being very important constant supply of food for birds are not stressed. Because of this constant maintenance labor is very expensive. Pigeon extermination method is widely used in municipalities.
The cages can be extended to pigeons and sparrows.

In some cases their use is essential and it needed permits. Used air guns, especially a very persistent bird that can endanger an entire system of protection.

Removal of nests and eggs. This method in pigeon extermination is also efficient and very effective. You can remove nests and eggs to prevent farming. By removing the birds usually lay eggs again, that instead of eliminating what you do is pierce, put an oil (avoiding the diffusion of O2 into the egg) not to hatch, and so on. This is a very laborious and impractical.

The problems posed control methods are:
- Legal provisions.
- Reaction from the public.
- Effect of "empty"
