Installation of Repellent Devices

Professionals use a range of repellent devices for pigeons, such as:

– Anti-pigeon spikes: Prevent pigeons from perching on structures without causing them harm.
– Protective nets: Block access to potential nesting areas.
– Electrical systems: Provide a harmless but effective barrier to discourage pigeons from landing on buildings.


Habitat Modification Techniques

Habitat modification is a key strategy, including reducing sources of food and water and eliminating potential nesting sites, making the environment less attractive to pigeons.
