Exclude Pest Pigeons with Pigeon Netting

Birds especially, pigeons can create a major problem for property owners and their managers. Regrettably, the larger the building, the bigger the problem and, in turn, more reason to exclude pigeons. For strip malls, warehouses, loading docks, hangars and other large structures, pigeons can quickly become a very costly nuisance. The birds often nest under awnings, overhangs, open roofs and covered beams in breezeways.

Pigeon droppings can be highly destructive. The acidic content of these droppings can eat into paint, plastic, metal, wood and even degrade stonework. Pigeon droppings can also deface and damage expensive signage - whether the signs are fabricated of metal, wood or plastic. For commercial and retail properties, pigeon droppings can create an image problem. Droppings on entryways, walkways, display windows, benches, umbrellas and nearby lampposts can be a turn off (calling for costly frequent cleanups). In addition, contact with pigeon droppings may pose a health risk, for they have been known to cause such diseases as histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis and psittacosis. This can pose a particular problem for any property that stores, prepares or serves food. In such venues, health inspectors have been known to shut down a property where evidence of bird droppings are present.

The Solution: Pigeon Netting

One of the most effective and humane ways to keep pigeons from your property is to seal them out with specially designed pigeon netting. The netting is non-conductive, so it can be used around electrical systems and RF transmission systems without worrying about shorts or interference.

The netting even comes in three colors - black, stone and white - to blend in with the area of installation. Once installed, the netting is virtually invisible.

Before pigeon netting is installed on a property, there may be a need to clean up pigeon nests and droppings. It's important to keep in mind that during any such cleanup effort, precautions should be taken to protect the public as well as work crews. The use of disposable gloves, eye protection and facemasks are recommended. If cleanup crews are working in enclosed areas, such as attics, respirators should be used.
