When pigeons land on your building, they put a real poop on your spirit.

Their mess and squawking cause a big eyesore to you and your guests, plus the ‘poo’ can pose serious health risks in the form of Histoplasmosis and other disease.  Air conditioner not keeping up?…Maybe it had something to do with the 2 inches of pigeon poo!  Here are remnants of their over-welcome stay in less than 3 months.  Every bird or wild animal service is different.  To place PPC above the competition, and ensure success, we treat every job like a research project, and are methodical.  Why get in a hurry and drag the job on unnessarily because of a hasty jump to conclusions about the proper manner of solution?  I do not believe that employees who are hyper and compulsive make good wildlife control persons, simply because they do not possess the patience required to work through the solution and then work to make sure the problem doesn’t happen again.  In the photo we took, birds were roosting on so many places that shock strips, netting, and spikes were beyond the budget of the building owner at this time.  Also at this business, we did NOT want to use Avitrol.  Instead, we decided upon a course of action to disturb the birds into relocating using another EPA registered product that is completely odorless (not something from Jed’s shed), harmless, nearly silent (no bird-bombs or guns), not sticky (like some bird products), and will positively not result in dead or injured birds.  Dead birds on the sidewalk are worse press than the poop they cause.  This specific project has just started, but should be successful in 2-3 weeks.  Oh, we also hauled screen and snippers way up onto the roof and sealed some of the chimneys from the 1880’s…always end up with a bunch of scratched hands when working with that screen!  After a bird or wildlife control effort is successful, we will often suggest a maintenance plan on a yearly basis to ensure that the problem doesn’t reoccur.  This is especially true of birds, as with even the most ambitious efforts, if the work is not monitored yearly, they will often find a way to start roosting and nesting again, even on spikes.
