Pigeon netting completely controls all pigeon problems, forcing the problem pigeons to look elsewhere for a nesting or roosting site. In addition to bird netting, another effective pigeon control product is BirdShock Flex Track System. The harmless shock typically modifies all roosting behavior that birds do.
OvoControl, “birth control for birds“, is a ready-to-use bait that interferes with the reproduction of treated birds, causing the population to decline through attrition. This effective and humane technology is especially useful for managing pigeon flocks in larger areas without having to resort to poisons and their associated risks.
The basic steps required for planning an OvoControl program include the following,
Unintentional food sources
Even when not feeding on purpose, we humans are messy, leaving leftovers and dropped crumbs everywhere. Pigeons hang around town squares, public parks, and other trafficked areas to help themselves to what we leave behind, especially when convenient roosting and nesting sites are nearby. To discourage pigeons from gathering, food attractants need to be cleaned up regularly.
In suburban neighborhoods, too, homeowners may mistakenly feed pigeons, or they may be providing food for pigeons inadvertently when feeding their backyard birds by tossing seed on the ground, rather than putting it in birdfeeders. To discourage pigeons visiting your yard, change the type, amount, and timing of feeding. If most of the pigeons fail to move elsewhere, you’ll need to stop feeding all birds for a couple weeks. (Don’t worry; the birds won’t starve.) When you resume feeding, only put out seed in birdfeeders and keep the ground below them cleaned up.
Prevent roosting and nesting
Pigeons look for flat surfaces for roosting and nesting. Encourage them to do these things elsewhere by making flat surfaces unavailable to them. With the correct application of the right product, roosting structures can be rendered virtually pigeon-free.

Pigeon problems: Why these birds can be dangerous Most of us don’t object to pigeons unless they are present in large numbers. Pigeons’ droppings may ruin vegetation, damage property such as statues, benches, cars and buildings and what’s more produce an objectionable odor. A few centuries ago pigeon droppings were extremely valuable. Droppings that are combined with feathers and nests may block vents and downspouts on buildings. Finally, large accumulations of droppings may cause several fungal diseases in humans. And if you don’t want to deal with mites and parasites that are carried by pigeons it’s time to embrace some efficient pigeons’ control solutions.
