Problems Associated with Pigeons on the Roof

Since pigeons often rely on humans for food and shelter, they are usually found in cities and on farms. The rooftops of buildings make excellent nesting sites as they keep the pests high above the ground away from predators and in close proximity to food sources like seeds, bread, trash, and crops. However, the presence of pigeons on roofs can be detrimental to residents. For instance, the pests produce a lot of droppings, which soil building facades and contribute to the spread of diseases such as salmonella and encephalitis. They also damage shingles, siding, and gutters, as well as annoy nearby individuals with their frequent squawking. Finally, pigeons put homes at risk of fire when they construct their nests inside pipes or too close to electrical wires.

Control & Removal

Since pigeon presence can be so damaging, property owners should employ preventative measures to reduce the possibility of attracting them onto yards. Placing bird spikes along the edges of roofs makes it so the pests can't land, let alone nest. Eliminating standing water from lawns and cutting down food availability also makes private properties less favorable to pigeons. If the pests have already set up nests, individuals should contact professional wildlife control. The experts at Critter Control not only remove pigeons on roofs, but also offer more extensive tips on preventing future infestations.

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!
