Pigeons are wonderful birds, no doubts about that. However, this trait appears to change when they come into your house as invited guests and disrupt the comfortable living that you and your family enjoyed before. Their noises are not pleasing at all especially when you need that quiet calm time to yourself. Their droppings are mot cleaning to please either. The first step to take to get rid of them is definitely inspecting places that serve as their entry points and correcting them.
• Places to inspect
Pigeons have a number of entry points. These would include cracks on your walls, spaces near your roof, areas around the attic. Ensure that you also inspect the balcony to inspect of any holes that may just be the size to allow the entry of these birds. You might also consider inspecting your fence for any gaps. Aside from just looking for holes and spaces inspect for areas that are rotten, rusted as well as split. After you have identified the entry points, the next thing becomes making these points unavailable for the birds. The methods would include:
Sealing should be done to all cracks in your walls. Holes around the roof and the attic should also be sealed. Sealing all the cracks as well as the holes will ensure these points do not act as entry points even in the future.
• Conducting repairs
For area that cannot be corrected by simply sealing, then conduct a whole repair. You could start by replacing all compartments in your house that are rotten. If the roof is rusted, then it will save you the trouble of having to constantly deal with them when you repair them. Rusted roofs in most cases may have holes that the birds could use to access your ceiling.
• Installing bird nests
There are entry points that you could not adapt the sealing or the repairing method and yet area entry holes for these birds. Such could include the vents. So when it comes to such, what you need to do is install bird nets to prevent entry. It is serves as a convenient method especially as bird nets are available in every hardware and ensures effectiveness.
• Engaging pros.
If it seems a challenge to conduct the inspection by yourself, there is always the easiest option of having the experts conduct the inspection and establish the necessary corrective measures.
