Pigeon Removal in Fairfax, Alexandria & Arlington

Among all species of birds, pigeons may be the most comfortable living in an urban environment. Lots of food and shelter is available and, because the birds are not afraid of people, they will pretty much roost anywhere.

Their nests are made of sticks and grasses and clumped together. Nests can be found in rafters, beams, insulation, and nooks and crannies located in attics and crawl spaces. Pigeon droppings are high in acid and can corrode gutters and metal structures. They can erode stone buildings and loom as a health hazard if inhaled.

To remove pigeons from your Virginia home, your best option is to summon the experts from Summit Environmental Solutions.

Why Removing Pigeons is a Problem

Certain methods that work for other bird abatement are usually ineffective at removing pigeons as they are accustomed to human interaction. There are still a wide variety of techniques that can be used, some with more success than others. In most cases, they are most effective when used in combination.

As feral birds, pigeons are not protected by any federal or state laws, although local ordinances may exist. Even without those protections, it is still best to call a wildlife control specialist to remove pigeons. These specialists are trained to humanely eradicate nuisance birds from homes.
