How to Keep Pigeons Out of a Wall

Pigeons are actually harmless birds, but pigeon activities in and around your home may cause significant damage to your property. These birds are called winged rats for a reason, they really can be a nuisance. Pigeons can infest your home with disease-carrying mites or ticks, and their pathogen-laden droppings are yet another problem. Pigeons should be nowhere near your home, let alone in your walls. Here is a great source at pestcontrolbird.com to learn more about bird removal.

But if you’ve got a pigeon problem, here’s how you can deal with it. 

The easiest way to keep pigeons out of your wall is to find the entry point, install an exclusion device, and let them fly out themselves. But to keep them away for good, you have to keep them away from your property. 

Pigeons won’t get the chance to enter your walls if they are not already roosting on your roof or chimney. If you can successfully keep these birds away from your property, then you will never have to worry about having them inside your walls. Pigeons are persistent and no matter how many times you chase them away, they will always return, except you take some extra steps to ensure that you make your home uncomfortable or inaccessible to them. 

To permanently keep pigeons away from your property—walls, attic, roof—you will have to make certain changes like installing pigeon spikes or netting that deter birds or putting up physical deterrents that repel pigeons like fake owls. Inspect your building and seal holes: check the roof, attic, and chimney for holes and seal them off. Since pigeons live in the sky, they will access your building from the upper sections. They will often perch on the roof or chimney and can get inside through any cracks they find. You can keep pigeons out by properly and completely sealing every crack, also cap your chimney to prevent pigeons from building their nest in it. If you make your home undesirable to pigeons, they will be forced to stay away, and you will eventually have some peace. 

Some pigeon deterrents to consider

Pigeons may not be scared of humans, but they have natural predators that they find very scary. You can use this knowledge to your advantage and install ceramic owls or hawks to scare them away. But this technique alone will not do the trick because, after a while, the birds will realize that the owl is fake and will continue coming to your roof. You can also try reflective objects like foils or mirrors, this works because birds have a hard time seeing properly when they are close to shiny and reflective objects. 

Another option to explore is water hoses, you can drive pigeons away by spraying them with water, but this method is very temporary as the birds will return once they notice that the water is gone. 

Remove attractants

One of the most effective methods for keeping a pigeon away is to make him less interested in being there in the first place. Remove any standing water that could be used for drinking and bathing. You'll also want to be certain that all trash is contained and out of reach to avoid any free meals.

Bird feeders will always be a problem, despite the fact that you can buy designs with narrow openings that only allow songbirds to enter. If you have bird feeders, consider removing them, especially if you notice that they are attracting the wrong birds and creating a problem for you. 

Another thing that may attract pigeons to your property is a vegetable garden. It’s impossible to hide a vegetable garden if you have one. But you can make your fresh tomatoes and cherries out of reach to birds by investing in a fruit cage. Use a mesh wire fruit cage to protect your veggies and keep nuisance birds away.
