Well I have a bit of a problem.I have a bunch of pigeons roosting all over my house!I didn't mind them being there at first but it is getting a bit out of control.There is feces everywhere,all over my driveway,patio,car,even on my windows.I was wondering the best way to get rid of them?I have small children in the house that can get sick playing outside.I counted 26 of them a few day ago.I you had this problem how would you go about handling it?

They usually only roost on your house if you're feeding them, or feeding songbirds and have feeders out. Do you feed them?

Someone in the close vacinity must be feeding, otherwise why are they perching on your roof? Are you close to other houses? Must be something attracting them.

I have one house directly next to me but no one is living in it.There are some of them living on that one too.LOL I am not to sure what is attracting them.

Are they roosting and nesting there, or just perching there during the day?

Don't think he wants to feed them in order to give them OvoControl. Just wants them gone.

PigeonLvr, have you tried squirting at them with a hose to scare them off, or maybe bouncing a tennis ball near them, not to hit them, but to scare them off the roof? I would think that if you made it scary for them, that they would go else where.

I live in las vegas.I have tried spraying them with a hose,lighting fireworks off in my driveway,shouting at them,etc etc.I called pest control and they wanted to charge me some crazy price so that ain't happening.They will scatter for a few days but always seem to come back.

Are they nesting there? What is the attraction? Are they on many of the roofs around you?
How long have you lived there, and how long have they been there?

They have been there about a year and I am pretty sure they are nesting.They are on other roofs next to my house but not as many.

I'm sorry, but the only way I can think of, is scaring them away. But if they are on other roofs near you, then they would eventually just come back. I wonder if someone in that area is feeding them.

That's a terrible thing to do. Just to get rid of a few birds. Nothing humane about that.

How so?As long as I get a quick and clean kill should be fine.I have had enough of these things destroying my house.I would much rather shoot them then put poison or something.There was 54 on my house the other just picture the kind of mess that would make.I am going to shoot 5 or 6 of em and see if the rest go away.
