Residential Pigeon Control

Asked January 6, 2017, 4:43 PM EST

Good Afternoon, My elderly parents have at least two nuisance pigeons roosting on their residential roof top, making a mess of the walkways and roof. Can Penn State Extension assist in any way? Thank you, Sandra

Pigeons are attracted by food and a place to rest - like your parents' roof top! To discourage the pigeons, any food source must be removed and resting places made unavailable. Here's a link to a thorough discussion on pigeon control:

A great product for roof top pigeon problems is "Bird Barrier." Here's a link to more info: http://www.birdbarrier.com/residential/

You can hire a professional to do the installation, if necessary.
