Types of Pigeon Deterrents
Pigeons like to roost on roofs, ledges, in the attics of homes, in sheds, and in barns. Their presence is often unwelcome because of the messes they make and the diseases they spread. Thankfully, a number of pigeon deterrents are available to distressed homeowners. Most come in the form of habitat modification. Individuals can purchase a variety of tools like screens or netting to place around the surfaces on which these pests typically land and keep pigeons away. However, if holes or gaps appear in these deterrents, they're rendered useless. Frightening devices and other repellents are also available, though they tend to lose their effectiveness over time.
Installing perch repellents, like porcupine wire, also discourages pigeons from landing and building nests on ledges as they cause discomfort for the pests. Spikes serve a similar purpose. Since they are permanent fixtures, they must be cleaned with regularity to remove the feathers and feces that build up over time.
Roosting pigeons bring about various health problems and damage personal property. Using the commonly available deterrents helps keep the pests at bay, but maintaining and installing these devices can be costly and time-consuming. Furthermore, pigeons are resourceful birds that will eventually find ways around most deterrents. Contacting trained pest removal specialists ensures effectiveness. Not only do the professionals at Critter Control remove pigeons from private properties, they help devise plans to keep the pests away in the future.

Best Bat Removal
Brandon was out to please and make out lives easier with out bat situation. Above and beyond of the call of duty and got the job done. Thank you!
BAT POOP CLEAN-UP AND PREVENTION! Bat guano removed from gables. No bats found in attic, so put new screens on all gable vents, as one screen was close to breaking and then bats may have gotten in! Great work in Tulsa
Squirrels and chipmunks were in our attic. So we called Critter Control to do an inspection. Their representative climbed all over our very steep roof and found several places where squirrels had entered our attic.
Upon inspection of the attic, evidence of bats was also found. The Critter Control team came on time to completely caulk the entire perimeter of the house and create an exit strategy for the squirrels and bats.
Because bat droppings
can cause histoplasmosis, this also required total removal and replacement of our attic insulation and sanitizing the space. Not a small job in a 1,300 sq. ft. attic! While Critter Control’s cost was high, our homeowners insurance covered most of it. Everyone representing Critter Control was professional, courteous and timely. I would highly recommend them to anyone who thinks they might have unwelcome guests living in their attic
On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings
Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.
She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

We noticed droppings on our brand new deck - we were given their number from our contractor. They came the next day. Brian looked at it and said - yeah, bats!! He then checked every area in our attic and he explained exactly what needed to be done.
He found evidence of a mice infestation, provided a referral and they are helping us as well. Great service, very informative, very professional! We are very satisfied and would recommend them to anyone who has any issues with any critters!
