Pigeon Inspections

We recommend doing an inspection first for any pigeon problem as every situation is different and will require its own method or combination of methods. After the inspection, we will prepare a detailed and customized proposal to your site.

Avicidal Baiting

Technician will place out the baiting stations/trays strategically across the site, followed by a placement of avicidal baits to deter pigeons from congregating on the roof – this is good for flat top roofs. It usually requires an initial set up followed up regular monitoring and rebaiting. Initial set up and regular treatment will be quoted separately.

Pigeon Trapping

For the trapping service, it requires an initial placement of pigeon traps, followed by weekly or regular service. During each visit, technician will monitor of the traps, resetting the traps, picking up any pigeons caught and releasing off site (20 km away), plus baiting. This is good for a long term control.

Pigeon Spiking Installation

Pigeon Spiking Installation

We can install deterrents such as spiking in areas such as ledges, alcoves, roof and balconies etc. We also sell these products at our office for do it yourself enthusiasts. During the installation, we will use screw or combination of PL 40 (glue) to secure the bird spikes on all the potential roosting areas. The bird spikes are 8 inch stainless steel and they are aesthetically pleasing and are hardly visible from a distance. This will prevent the birds from ever roosting in these areas and gaining access. This is will be a good long term control program without frequent monitoring and follow up.
