Property owners are quick to lay traps and bait stations for household pests like ants or rodents, but what can you do about birds? Due to mild winters, pigeons can be seen flying over the Coquitlam area all year long. This means incessant cooing, the spreading of bacteria and bird droppings being left on homes and businesses for all 365 days! Instead of letting these winged pests take over your space, ditch the mess with one call to our Toodaloo experts. At Toodaloo Pest and Wildlife Control, our Coquitlam pigeon removal services deter birds humanely and safely while still getting the best results!
Part of what makes bird control such a difficult process is their mobility. How can you shoo something away when it will just come right back? Swinging a broom or shooing a bird might push them away for a moment but if there is something appealing about your space, you can bet they won’t stay away long. Having chickadees or robins flying around your space can be a pleasant enough sight but pigeons are scavengers. Trailing sidewalks and dumpsters for their next meal means picking up bacteria on the way. When you spot a pigeon roosting along your roof or on your deck, they are not just resting their wings they are spreading germs!
In addition to being dirty, these birds are loud! It can be distracting to have loud cooing going on in the background during an event – or even worse, when you are trying to sleep! Balconies are prime real estate for these unwelcome guests. If there was any doubt that avian populations are a pest problem, there is one last thing to consider: pigeon droppings. Due to their diet and digestive habits, these droppings are highly acidic. While they do look terrible, a bad aesthetic is not the worst part of having these splatters on your concrete, car or windows. Over time, these acidic leavings can be corrosive, stripping away protective coatings and even paint! On porous surfaces like concrete or glass, droppings seep down into pores, weakening materials from the inside. This means breakage and inevitable repairs and replacements, which cost a pretty penny and cause a big headache. Luckily, professional pigeon control can solve these issues by keeping pests away from your property.
Pigeons are a global issue. In the past, some major cities have taken extreme pest control methods to handle bird populations. Instead of taking a harsh or chemical approach, our experts get results by preventing pigeons from landing in the first place! The best bird repellent on the market is an unwelcoming environment. More often than not, these pests are looking for a good meal and a place to rest. By removing food sources from surrounding areas and using barriers to stop birds from landing. This seems like a tall order but there are plenty of pigeon control products on the market that do just that.
By partnering with Bird-B-Gone, Toodaloo technicians are able to outfit any and all property types with pigeon deterrents best suited to your space. Everyone has caught glimpses of large spikes sitting on top of lamp posts but not all bird spikes are so obvious. Spike strips can be fitted to roofing without ruining the curb appeal of your space. If spikes are not your preferred bird deterrent, there are plenty of options to choose from. Netting is often used to block off corners of commercial or industrial spaces to prevent nests from forming out of reach.
In the same way that certain sounds can be annoying to humans, pests are not immune to audio assaults. The right type of audio or visual que deters pigeons by making them feel like an environment is unsafe, usually because there are known predators nearby. Electrical currents can also be applied to handrails and awnings. Vibrations from these additions make it uncomfortable to stick around for long periods.
Choosing a local pest control company gets the best results in the best time frame, but there is also a community connection. Each member of the Toodaloo team cares about the condition of your property, but also about the pigeons themselves. Instead of harming these birds, we just want to redirect them to a new space. Instead of throwing up some netting and calling it a day, our specialists are committed to getting the best results possible. This means aftercare and regularly scheduled services, if necessary.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
