Why you need to consider calling the experts if you think you have a pigeon problem

Pigeons tend to congregate in almost any big or small city. While they are not harmful by nature, pigeons are quite noisy and do leave a lot of mess. This can result in diseases, along with trash and pollution. In recent years, pigeons from the North have also invaded countless Southern cities. This has been deemed a scourge on society – since these nuisance birds are causing a lot of problems and headaches. If you are dealing with pigeon problems or other bird problems, Avon Pest Control is at your services. With years of extensive industry experience, we have the tools to safely remove these pests from your home or office.

Pigeons tend to flock together for protection against predators. They also look for food together, which results in massive noise and feathers being spread all over the place. While pigeons are synonymous with big city landmarks – they also tend to congregate in homes and offices. No truer is this then when it comes to attics, which offer a sense of protection for pigeons. Like bats and raccoon, pigeons can cause a serious mess in attics, basements, and even crawlspaces. Some pigeons also carry certain diseases, as well as germs and other sicknesses. With Avon Pest Control, we have developed strategic plans of action to remove pigeons from your dwellings. This includes but is not limited to:

·         Checking access routes in attics and homes – safely leading pigeons to fly away and seal up these entrance – exit paths.
·         Removal of dead pigeons –nest removal.
·         Placement of traps – barriers – block up attics.
·         “Scare owl” figurines – repellents and light/sound deterrents.
While these are but a few ways Avon tackles pigeon control, it all depends on the severity of the issue. If only a few pigeons and nests are present – we can easily remove these at cost-affordable rates. In the event of massive infestation (like bats), human and pet-safe pesticides may be needed. Simply contact us to discuss your options and choices. As your premier pest control agency, we are committed to excellence in all pigeon, raccoon, vermin, and insect removal services. Our company is highly reputable and continues to receive stellar reviews and industry ratings.

Let Nuisance Birds Be a Nuisance No Longer With Our Expert Help!


Birds are nice when they come to your home alone or in pairs but when they flock they can cause problems. Pigeons are one of the most common problem birds that people encounter. Pigeons are notorious for roosting in flocks. When they roost they make nests and lay eggs and then it becomes impossible to drive them away. Not only do they make the roof and other areas of your home look unsightly, you may have to re-roof your home because their poo is acidic and will eat through almost any material.  Starlings are also a problem. They also flock like pigeons and in the end, not only your roof a mess, your gutters will be blocked. Blocked gutters are less than ideal – when it rains and the water has nowhere to go it will flow back into your ceiling and then you will be looking at damage in the hundreds if not thousands of pounds. The problem with nuisance birds is that they don’t scare easy. You might succeed in rousting them from their nets but they only fly off for a few minutes – they are soon back and noisier than ever. Some people try using traps but there is very little success with those if you are dealing with a flock of problem birds.  The best thing to do is call in a professional pest control company because they know how to effectively deal with all bird problems including pigeon problems, starling problems and others. They know how to create anti-roosting structures so that the birds don’t come back.  One of the best companies that you can call in for a solution is Avon Pest Control.

If pigeons are proving to be less than welcome guests in your home, Avon Pest Control can help


If you live in Warwick and surrounding areas your may have seen one or two pigeons on your roof or on the ledge in your garden. They are not a problem when they are seen from afar; but what do you do when they come to your home to roost? It is not uncommon for homeowners in these areas to have pigeon infestations but the question you have to ask yourself is “how do I deal with these pests?”

First, they will make everything look unsightly because they defecate everywhere – it will not take long before your roof, your ledges and even your yard are covered in a smelly layer of white. Second, pigeon faeces are acidic so everything that it comes into contact with is ruined. It will also clog your gutters so that when it rains the water pools on your ceiling rather than flowing down to the ground. As if property damage is not enough, pigeons can make you seriously ill; they can transmit diseases such as meningitis and salmonella.

Maybe you are thinking that you only need shoo them away and problem solved. You are wrong – once pigeons have nested they will come back again and again.
