Los Angeles Pigeon Removal
Pigeons are found everywhere, especially here in Southern California where there is massive amounts of people and buildings.
Pigeons are cliff dwelling birds and our structures are great “cliffs”. Pigeons will be found nesting just about anywhere they can, in the structures of buildings, inside attics, hanging flower pots, palm trees, etc., anywhere that it is safe for them to build a nest and raise their young. The higher up the better for them to escape predators such as raccoons, possums, squirrels, their winged enemies such as hawks and owls.
When pigeons nest on a home or in the attic, they create various problems. The smallest is their incessant cooing that can keep you up all night. They roost in the same spot where they poop and poop and poop! This accelerates the deterioration of homes and business buildings and increases the costs of maintenance. Pigeon droppings and nesting materials can create serious health problems to people including Histoplasmosis, a lung disease. Other birds can expose people to Psittacosis, which can result in the inflammation of the heart, liver, and nervous system, and migratory birds are suspected as an introductory host of the West Nile Virus.
Trapping and control by Animal Trapping and Removal Service is the best and most effective way to rid yourself of the nuisance pigeons. Other effective methods are exclusion work, closing any open areas that are natural nesting spots for the pigeons and other cliff dwelling birds and animals. We also install spikes and needles which prevent roosting and nest building. This should only be done by experts like the staff at Animal Trapping and Removal Services as we have been doing this method and technique for over 30 years.
