What Damage to pigeons do?
Pigeon droppings on roof tops, and AC units. Fouling occurs where pigeons nest or roost. Apart from being very nasty to look at, the acidic pigeon droppings can erode concrete, paint, and stone work resulting in costly damage to your building and equipment. Gutters can become blocked with pigeon fouling causing many water damage problems. Fire escapes can become coated with pigeon droppings, making them unsafe to use. Pigeon droppings can also cause major problems with AC units and electrical systems.
What bait should I use for my pigeons traps?
Pigeons love whole corn, pop corn and about any kind of bread. In the wild, they will eat virtually anything offered to them. Most areas with pigeon problems are commercial areas such as city parks, down town roof tops, and anywhere pigeons are feed or find feed left by humans.
Where should I place pigeons traps?
Pigeons can be placed on flat on the ground where pigeons feed, or on flat roof tops where the pigeons roost. They will enter the traps readily when they see corn or bread. Prebait an area with corn or bread to accustom the pigeons to feeding in the same area. Most of the pigeons will be captured in the first few days. You can leave several pigeons in the pigeon traps to serve as decoys to lure the other pigeons into the pigeon trap. Water should be provided in a bowl inside the pigeon trap. Visit the pigeon trap every day to remove the trapped pigeons and to add bait & water as needed. If you are baiting the pigeons in a area with direct sun, place something on top of the pigeon trap to provide shade for the trapped pigeons.
