Bird Control in Pleasanton, CA
Bay Area Bird Services
With just one service, we can eliminate birds that are infesting your premises now, as well as prevent new birds from taking over in the future. Pigeon waste removal and clean-up is crucial before bird proofing and we can make sure to safely and effectively remove any nests, feces, and debris left behind from birds.
Commercial and residential pigeons know how to make a mess. One mating pair can quickly turn into a small family. Within a year or two, your house or commercial building can literally be covered with fecal matter. Allow us to provide the Bay Area bird proofing services you need.
The Negative Impact of Pigeons
Pigeons are attracted to the scent of their mothers’ droppings. When left alone, pigeons and their offspring can stay together on your structure until the end of their natural lives. Pigeons are abundant in cities and around rural areas. They conflict with humans for several reasons. Their droppings deface buildings, kill vegetation, and are aesthetically displeasing when deposited on benches, sidewalks, and cars. Around grain elevators, pigeons consume and contaminate grain destined for human consumption.
Birds are known vectors of disease. One way birds get people sick is when mosquitoes, ticks, or mites feed on the birds and then on us. This is how diseases are spread to humans. Pigeons carry Pigeon Ornithosis (psittacosis), Encephalitis, Newcastle disease, Toxoplasmosis, Salmonella food poisoning, and other diseases. Histoplasmosis, a fungal disease that can infect people, can be contracted when cleaning up accumulations of dusty pigeon manure.
Pigeon ectoparasites such as mites, fleas, ticks, and bugs may readily bite people. Pigeons are also considered a hazard around airports. Pigeons have been known to cause roof leaks due to their accumulations of droppings, which, in time, may either rot away a roof or dam up rainwater that may sit on the roof for weeks, until it finds a way into the structure.
Pigeon Control and Removal
A number of options exist for managing or preventing nuisance situations involving pigeons. The cleanup of bird infested sites is a first priority and is usually completed before a full exclusion program is started. Pigeons often prefer to use the interior portions of homes and buildings to nest and roost if an opportunity for access is provided. Openings to lofts, attics, steeples, vents, and eaves can be blocked by installing wire mesh or other materials to eliminate birds from nesting and roosting.
Our pigeon control process is simple! The process begins with you scheduling an inspection. After that, we can do all the work for you.
The process includes:
- Schedule an inspection
- Remove nests and loose droppings
Before we can install anything on any structure, it must be thoroughly cleaned. We start by removing and bagging all nests and loose debris on the structure. This reduces the amount of debris coming off the structure during the pressure washing phase.
Pressure Wash All Pigeon Affected Areas
We use a 3000 PSI pressure washer to clean structures with pigeon affected areas. This includes all nest and roosting areas. It also includes areas where pigeon fecal matter may have accumulated such as sidewalks, driveways, walls, beams, ledges, etc. We always wash walls and concrete areas that are affected, as runoff from pressure washing occurs. The end result can be a very clean structure!
Next, we install any deterrents agreed upon in the estimate which may include netting, spikes, screening, mesh, bird wire, electric shock systems, and more. As necessary, we can adjust to the new habits which pigeons are forced to make from the new deterrents placed in their former homes and perch areas.
All work is guaranteed! We stand behind our products, installation, and effective performance. We’ve been in business long enough to assure our clients that if the birds return to any area that we have treated which have not been disturbed by any building maintenance or repair activities, we’ll be back to take care of the problem at no charge.
