Vancouver Island is known around the world for its beautiful scenery and beaches and the city of Victoria. This capital city is known for it’s history, its culture, its architecture – and pigeons! These birds are intrusive, destructive and a real pain for property owners in the area. Instead of letting these unwelcome guests take over your home or business, call Toodaloo!
Professional Victoria pigeon removal services are able to help property owners keep their spaces clean and inviting by handling your bird problem efficiently and humanely. No matter the size of your space, there is a way to remove these birds and keep them from coming back.
The high-traffic, waterfront streets of Victoria are a common playground for pigeons and other scavenger birds. These winged pests are so common that they are practically a part of the landscape. More than taking up sidewalks, bothersome birds are known to wreck their surroundings with loud cooing, bacteria and, of course, droppings.
Bird droppings are unsanitary and visually unappealing but pigeon droppings are somehow even worse. These leavings are so acidic that they are corrosive. A bird dropping on the hood of a car looks terrible but it can also wear away at protective coatings and damage paint.
One of the biggest set-backs to a pigeon problem is just how stubborn these pests are. You might spend time shooing birds away or spraying them with water, only to have them come right back. It is one thing to get a bit of temporary relief from the presence of birds but if you want to get rid of pigeons for good, it is time to explore the different types of bird repellents and deterrents.
Every minute, there is a pigeon roosting somewhere in the greater Victoria area. Flat surfaces are an ideal place for birds to nestle in, but they are able to get cozy in a wide range of environments. Unfortunately, for property owners, the majority of these are in tough-to-reach areas of residential spaces, such as balconies of condos, attics, roof peaks, garages and just about anywhere else that they can access.
Unlike your average pest, birds such as pigeons have become such a menace that larger cities have taken drastic measures in regard to pigeon control. As much as our Toodaloo technicians understand the need for pigeon control, we still love animals in all forms and are committed to safe and humane removal.
The key to successful, non-lethal pest control services is to understand what deters pigeons and what attracts them. By adding deterrents and ditching attractants (where possible), it is possible to encourage these pesky pests to go elsewhere.
After years in the industry, our experts have learned a thing or two about bird control. Instead of simply insisting that these pests find another place to nest, our Toodaloo technicians have an arsenal of tools behind them. By partnering with Bird-B-Gone, specialists are able to outfit homes, commercial properties and multi-unit spaces with everything from spikes and bird netting to audio and visual pigeon deterrents.
Once a bird has uncovered a recurring food source, it can be difficult to get them to leave. In a highly populated area like Victoria, this can be tricky. Tourism allows for a running stream of discarded french fries and ice cream cones but this does not have to be your problem. Call Toodaloo at the first sign of trouble and have your home outfitted by the best in the business.
Choosing local pest control specialists means prompt service, excellent customer service and access to any aftercare needs. Instead of being just another appointment in a schedule, Toodaloo caters to its clients like friends and neighbours – because this is often the case!
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.
