Pigeons are monogamous and will lay one to two eggs which hatch within eighteen days. Young are fed pigeon milk which is regurgitated food from both males and females. While mating occurs year round, the peak mating seasons are spring and fall.
Humane Pigeon Removal & Abatement
Griffin Pest Management uses a variety of humane exclusion techniques to remove a pigeon population. Our technicians make roosting and nesting areas inhospitable. We also fill in access to voids, sloping resting areas, and preventing landing by using devices will help. We do not recommend using scare balloons, plastic birds, or plastic snakes because they rarely work except for a very short period of time. We also recommend keeping all food and standing water out of reach of pigeons. In commercial settings, do not allow pigeon feeding. A Griffin technician will assess the infestation and recommend a strategy that best fits your needs and budget. Griffin also offers clean up and restoration for damage caused by pigeons and other birds. For the best results, we recommend beginning a bi-monthly or quarterly maintenance program for bird control. We also offer one-time services. For more information about our bird control program, please call today.
Quick Facts About Pigeons
Pigeons prefer grains for food and people will commonly feed pigeons unintentionally by spilling food or it in open trash containers. Pigeons roost in areas above ground and will readily nest in steeples, as well as voids on outside areas of buildings and other protected areas.
Pigeons are dependent on humans to provide them with food, roosting and nesting sites. They are commonly found around agricultural areas as well as warehouses, feed mills, and grain elevators. They are also commonly found in cities around parks, buildings, bridges, and any other structures.
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 may also infest nests such as stored product pests.
Homeowners need to make roosting and nesting areas inhospitable. Filling in access to voids, sloping resting areas, and preventing landing by using devices will help. Scare balloons, plastic birds, or plastic snakes rarely work except for a very short period. Keep all food and standing water out of reach of pigeons. In commercial settings, do not pigeon feeding.

Mike Watts is the BEST! He gives you a fair quote, doesn't oversell or want to gouge your eyes out or take everything in your bank account. He is honest, reasonable and fair. They did a great job on the fumigation of termites at my parent's rental property. I suddenly was seeing what looked like ANTS with Wings. I found out they could be termites. I will be using them at my house in the OC, for termites, insulation and rodent / raccoon fecal matter remediation in the attic. For PEST CONTROL - this is the GOTO COMPANY!

Great company, great employees. Joe Wilburn arrives at the scheduled time and does a great and thorough job. A lot of opossums, raccoons, and other such critters like to run through my back yard. That results in a flea infestation that the Griffin rep takes care of in his every other month treatment. Recommend Griffin if you are having flea/spider or other insect problem.
