Why You Need A Las Vegas Pigeon Exclusion
The need for Las Vegas pigeon exclusion services has grown remarkably large in the last few years. Pigeons are considered to be synanthropic; which means they rely on humans and our food, water, and shelter to survive, which is why they tend to be more concentrated in our cities and towns. In fact, it’s hard to find a neighborhood they haven’t gotten into, thus solutions are needed and they’re needed now! When it comes to keeping pigeons out, nothing is more effective than a Las Vegas Pigeon Exclusion. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the term given to pest control techniques, like pigeon exclusion, that offer you a pigeon free home without heavy reliance on pesticide.
Las Vegas Pigeon Exclusion Prevents Nesting
The first step is finding their potential nesting areas. Mother pigeons lay about 2-3 eggs per pregnancy, but the eggs are cared for by the father pigeon until they hatch. Two weeks after laying the eggs, the mother pigeon flies away, never to return. She goes off to find a new mate, to start the process again, and so on. Pigeons are on average about a foot long and some of them get very plump, but if you know anything about pigeons, you know that this doesn’t stop them from building their nests on top of each other in sometimes very tight spaces. Underneath the shingles on a roof top of a small eave makes many of our rooftops in the Las Vegas valley very susceptible to pigeon occupation. These ares are looked at first when performing a Las Vegas Pigeon Exclusion.
Pigeon Exclusions Prevent Disgusting Messes
Everything about pigeons is pretty disgusting. Pigeons build their nests out of feathers, twigs, dead grass, and/or anything else they can scrounge up. Pigeon nests are very poorly constructed and are sometimes even made out of pigeon poop that has accumulated over their original nests. A pigeon’s nest can leave a disease carrying mess which is just another reason to make sure they don’t infest your home.
Pigeons become very territorial once they find a home, making them extremely difficult to get rid of. Pigeons will live anywhere protective enough to live there ALL year long and, as we’ve previously discussed, Pigeon don’t migrate! They choose a location to live and stay there until they die. Sometimes pigeons die in their nests and other pigeons build their nests right on top of them. Pigeons are very attached to their homes and always build their nests in higher up locations that require a ladder or even a scissor or boom lift to reach. If you’re at this point, it’s too late for Las Vegas Pigeon Exclusion; you’ll need a professional pigeon removal service.
