What type of pigeons do I have?
The feral pigeon is the number one urban pest bird. Large numbers exist in every city across the country, including Denver, Fort Collins and other CO cities. Not a native bird, feral pigeons are descendants of domestic homing pigeons brought over from Europe and released here in the 1600s.
Are they dangerous?
Pigeons are filthy birds, causing disease and damage. Their droppings are known for triggering human slips and falls, as well as accelerating the aging of structures and statues. More seriously, pigeons may carry diseases such as cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, salmonella, food poisoning and more. Also, their droppings may harbor the growth of fungus which causes histoplasmosis. Other pests may live on these birds, including fleas, lice, mites, ticks and other pests. Pests such as stored product pests may also infest bird nests.
So why do I have them?
Pigeons seek out nesting sites that offer protection over their head, close to a heat source, food and water.
How do you get rid of them?
Getting rid of pigeons is generally done by live trapping or exclusion.
A full plan for removal, damage repair and cleanup is offered during the initial inspection.
