Pigeons roost in groups throughout residential neighborhoods, which is problematic because their feces quickly accumulate. Droppings collect on buildings, porches, sidewalks, and lawns.
What do they look like?
Similar in appearance to little marbles, pigeon droppings are firm and white-brown in color. The feces of healthy birds will contain tiny feathers. Loose, wet droppings are a sign of stressed or unhealthy birds.
What the droppings look like
In addition to being aesthetically displeasing when they stain building facades, pigeon droppings are highly acidic and erode both stone and metal over time. If enough accumulates within homes, the pest's excrement can cause floors or roofs to collapse. Large amounts can also kill vegetation and contaminate food meant for both humans and livestock.
Pigeon droppings & diseases
Finally, pigeon droppings contribute to the spread of life-threatening diseases like psittacosis, cryptococcosis, and histoplasmosis. Learn more about diseases that pigeons can carry.
To keep pigeon droppings off of private properties, individuals should use habitat modification and exclusion tools to reduce the possibility of attracting the pests. Frightening devices, bird spikes, and bird netting can all be employed to varying degrees of success. However, the most effective way to limit the presence of both pigeons and pigeon droppings is to call the wildlife experts at Critter Control.
For clean up, its best to contact a professional. Critter Control technicians know the best way to properly clean contaminated properties and possessions.

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!
