It might sound picturesque to share your property with nesting birds, but when it comes to pigeons, these fine-feathered non-friends will quickly wear out their welcome. That’s because nesting pigeons not only inflict property damage, but they also can carry disease and germs with them, not to mention make your home or business look like a white-speckled park statue.
Generally, pigeons like to nest in places that offer them a bit of shelter, like the eaves, gutters or in the vents of your home. As they nest, they can dig holes into your roof in order to gain entry into attics or dormer windows. As they make themselves at home on – or in – your home, pigeons will begin to use your property as their restroom, and you’ll soon see their droppings on your once-immaculate façade. While these droppings are unsightly, that’s not even your biggest issue; bird droppings can corrode the siding of your house and strip the paint off your car, not to mention that those droppings can carry some hazardous germs and bacteria, like salmonella, E. Coli, fungal infections and Encephalitis. Pigeon droppings, over time, dry out and turn into dust, which can then become trapped into vents and filters, polluting the air of your home or business.
