Pigeons having being recognized as “pest birds” may seem harmless at a glance but can cause quite a lot of nuisance if their proper steps are not taken. Pigeons are known to fly over long distances during which they carry disease causing bacteria or fungi more likely to cause food poisoning and some serious health conditions like histoplasmosis which can prove fatal in some cases.
As we all know well, pigeons are very noisy birds with constant cooing along with a pungent smell from the faeces as well as lice.
At this particular complex the tenants/owners were facing pigeon infestation problem with roosting all around their air conditioning as well as defecating all over the window ledge.
By installing bird spikes that cover 180 mm wide, we can prevent pigeons from thinking about landing on the ledges and are not that noticeable from ground level, along with attaching them to each air conditioning unit and cable tying them to the pipes behind each unit, this will prevent them nesting on & behind each air conditioning unit.
When it comes to pigeons roosting the first thing to do is take away their nesting areas to stop the annoying sounds and smells. By spiking other areas you will stop the pigeons from being a nuisance and they will leave.
Other areas that also need pigeon proofing are your solar panels, as these are a perfect safe area for them to nest and interfere with the electrical wiring which can cause even more problems that can easily be prevented by the installation of a solar panel kit.
These solar panel kits are perfectly safe and are not drilled into your panels but are held in place via clips.
By attaching the solar panel kit with clips your solar panel warranty is still covered.
If you have any problems with pigeon removal there are specialist kits that are used along with the appropriate working at heights equipment which concur with the Australian Standards.
