Pigeons Be Gone has addressed the needs successfully of over 500 commercial properties in Las Vegas, Henderson, NV, Summerlin, NV, Green Valley, NV, and most of Southern Nevada since 1998. Some of these properties include casinos, banks, schools, restaurants, gas station canopies, billboards, parking garages, shopping malls, warehouses, and cell towers. The majority of commercial properties are advised to begin addressing their pigeon control or pigeon removal needs by first eliminating food sources from the property. Reducing the food supply has been proven to reduce the number of nesting pigeons. This can be done by garbage control from trash left in and around dumpsters. Make sure your tenants are sealing all trash bags and closing lid doors on the dumpsters. Remove food sources that reoccur each season such as pyracantha bushes or olive trees. If removing isn’t an option a professional tree trimming company can spray a chemical hormonal fruit eliminator which should be done annually.
Once the food sources are eliminated most commercial properties are advised to begin addressing their pigeon control needs with a trapping program. Removing pigeons from a large commercial building is a bit more challenging than addressing a smaller residential property. Mass nesting is common as pigeons are a community flocking bird; often dozens sometimes hundreds will share one building. Trapping is by far the most effective way of removing nesting flocks of pigeons. Once the pigeons are removed we can work with the customer to decide if they want to remove the pigeons on an annual basis or install one of our many more permanent preventive measures. Such as spikes, screening, or bird netting, as costs for the methods we use may vary considerably.
Before the permanent methods can be installed we always recommend a bio hazard cleaning or Pigeon Cleanup. Roof drains can become clogged with nesting materials or feces causing extremely hazardous conditions for occupants of a building during heavy rainstorms. When drains are clogged there is always a potential for the roof collapsing. Roof leaks and pigeons go hand in hand as pigeon droppings filled with urea are highly acidic causing damage to the paper underlayment. Pigeon droppings can also stain the tile on the roof permanently which can create a bullseye for new pigeons flying over the property. The staining can also happen to the stucco causing an unsightly first impression for customers. Physical damage to air conditioning units is one of the main concerns for our clients. Nesting materials, feathers, and feces can get sucked into the air intake coils causing the unit to become inefficient and eventually lead to mechanical failure. The other common concern for a.c. units is the air being pumped into the building itself may pose a health risk to occupants. Pigeons are known to carry over 60 diseases and some can be transported into the air. Three extremely dangerous human diseases associated with pigeon droppings are histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis. Those with compromised immune systems, elderly, or infants are generally more of a risk to these airborne diseases.
Commercial properties also run the risk of a potential slip and fall lawsuit because wet pigeon feces are extremely slippery.
