Some pests scurry, some pests crawl but the worst pests fly. Discouraging birds from hanging around your home or business requires more than just shooing them away. When most property owners think of pest control, bird problems are not the first thing to come to mind, but these uninvited guests are loud, dirty and leave a major mess behind. Instead of learning to deal with droppings or getting comfortable with cooing, trust a Toodaloo technician with your Surrey pigeon removal services. Our team of highly trained experts know how to remove birds safely and humanely while keeping them from coming back!
Unlike other pests, birds cannot just be caught and released. If you are noticing pigeons hanging out around your home or commercial property, it is because something has brought them there. The main culprit here is a renewable or consistent food source but it also might be something as simple as a covered space to take a rest. Whatever it is that keeps them coming back, is called at an attractant. Swatting or shooing these intruders from a ledge doesn’t mean that they won’t be back within the next day, or even the next hour. In addition to spotting these winged pests with your own two eyes, there are other tell-tale signs that you’ve got birds squatting nearby.
Even if they are not visible in a direct moment, you may still find signs of a pigeon nesting nearby. Discarded feathers build up over time, creating a trail. Spotting the odd feather or castoff is common enough but when they are showing up consistently, you might have a problem. Another sign of unwanted guests are the sounds that they make. Unlike other birds whose songs are soothing, the coo of a pigeon is hardly a nice sound to wake up to. In fact, many homeowners are kept awake by the sounds of birds.
Last but not least, a sure-fire sign that you are dealing with a nearby infestation are droppings. No one wants to have splatters across their patios, deck, windows or vehicles. In addition to being ugly, pigeon droppings are known to be highly acidic. If left to sit, these droppings can have a negative impact on paint, finishes and protective coatings. It can be difficult to keep flying pests away from your space, especially if there are public areas nearby. Some good Samaritan might think its kind to spend the morning feeding pigeons, but their generosity might be what is drawing those birds back. You can’t control the world around you, but you can have a say what goes on inside your space. Call Toodaloo today to find out how to prevent pigeons from taking over your space.
Basic pigeon control products cannot prepare you for all the trouble that these pests bring. A department store bird repellent might scare them off for a while, but birds always come back. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on ineffective products and treatments, call Toodaloo for your bird control needs.
After years in the industry, our team of highly trained technicians know that the best way to beat an infestation is to prevent pigeons from landing in the first place. Simply asking nicely is not enough to keep tiny feet off your roofing or other outdoor areas, but our technicians have a solution that works! The most important part of any pest control routine is making sure that practices are handled humanely. Instead of using force to keep winged pests away, the Toodaloo technique deters pigeons without harming them. By preventing birds from landing on your space, nests cannot be built, and your property stays cleaner, longer.
Depending on the size of your property and the scale of your infestation, Toodaloo offers several options to keep your space free of pests. Pigeon deterrents range in type from bird spikes to netting and even electrical currents and audio tracks. By partnering with Bird-B-Gone, our team of experts can offer up something for everyone! Bird spikes are most commonly seen on top of streetlamps or on the awnings of commercial buildings. These might seem oversized for homes or smaller storefronts, but these strips come in many different sizes. All flat surfaces are a potential target for pigeon roosting. Even shorter spikes can make this uncomfortable and encourage them to look elsewhere for a place to stop. Bird netting, on the other hand works to keep intruders away by creating a physical barrier. Now, not everyone is going to be keen to hang netting across their balconies, obscuring views and getting in the way. These nets are also customizable for your space and are a top pick for industrial spaces and warehouses. It is not uncommon for birds to build nests in corners of warehouses, so netting is an easy way to keep them from getting comfortable.
In addition to more traditional deterrents, Toodaloo has moved into the future! Audio deterrents are an exciting addition to the tools roster. These can mimic the sounds of predators or other noises known to push pigeons away. Electric pulses can also be used to prevent birds from setting down roots. Upon landing, pulses or vibrations are felt, which can be jarring, and encourages birds to take flight.
