The types of Pigeon Deterrents We Use On Your Residential & Commercial Properties
At Standard Pest Management, we pride ourselves on building custom Pigeon deterrent solutions to keep them away from your home. There are a number of different, humane solutions we can offer you. Each that may carry an advantage over the other depending on where the Pigeons are nesting and what size the flock is. We offer:
This is a common deterrent we use to keep out large flocks. It’s also primarily used in places where entry/exit is a bit more complex. We have performed hundreds of commercial Pigeon netting projects with many of them being in large facilities. The beauty of netting is that it will provide you with a complete defense system against any type of flying bird from intruding and nesting on your property.
Pigeons love nesting alongside your rooftops or window sills because the flat surface makes for an inviting place to be. This won’t be the case with our bird spike installations. Don’t worry, they don’t actually harm the Pigeons, they’ll just make landing along your property an unattractive idea. We have installed Pigeon spikes along window sills, parapet walls, rooftop ledges, beams, girders, lights, towers, HVAC units, aerials, awnings, doors, entryways and much more.
Don’t worry, Our Shock Track deterrent systems aren’t as bad as they sound. This is a more modern, high-end solution for property owners or managers that would like absolute discrepancy when it comes to keeping birds away. Standard Pest Management has a strong stance on doing things in a humane manner. The shock track won’t actually harm any Pigeons. It will simply send a slight jolt thereby letting them know that “this property is not the right place to nest, go somewhere else.”
This is a popular option that our customers love because it requires very little maintenance. The idea behind Bird Wire is simple. We setup two posts that are bonded in between by nylon-coated steel wire. Underneath the wire, our technicians will place springs. When Pigeons attempt to land, they won’t be able to, due to instability. We typically install these over parapet walls, building ledges, roof ledges and more.
OvoControl Flock Management
Standard Pest Management always takes a proactive approach to everything that we do. This includes keeping Pigeons out and away from your property. Whether you have an existing deterrent setup or not, this makes for the perfect addition to lower the bird population around your property. OvoControl Flock Management is an automated feeder that will disperse ready-to-use bait. The Pigeons will bring this bait back to where they’re nesting, feed on it and will not be able to reproduce. This has shown real-world excellent results for homes and commercial properties of all kinds.

Residential Pigeon Control & Removal Solutions in New York City, Westchester County, Long Island or NJ
Pigeons are found all over New York City boroughs, Nassau County, Suffolk County, Westchester County and New Jersey. There are hundreds of thousands of residential properties within these areas and they are all ready-made targets for roosting by Pigeons. This nuisance bird is most likely attracted to your property for a number of reasons other than shelter. To start, the exterior of your home will always provide a steady source of food. Pigeons like to feast on garbage, insects, seeds, grain, and bread, which is fed to them by people that don’t know any better.
You’ll know that you have a Pigeon nesting problem, if you begin to see them in flocks cooing to one another. If you wait around long enough, you’ll notice that they are waiting around for food. Droppings will also begin to accumulate wherever they are nesting outside your home. These annoying birds love to nest on top of slanted shingle-roofs, chimneys, attics, lofts and more. If you don’t see dropping but are aware of some type of nesting issue, try to look around for piles of sticks, twigs and even grass. This is a surefire sign that Pigeons have invaded your home.
Why Residential & Commercial Pigeon Nesting Is Such a Hazard
Pigeons, which are nesting outside your home or business, are hazardous for many reasons. Chief among them is what’s contained in their droppings. Pigeon droppings contain a fungus that can spread a disease, which infects humans called “Histoplasmosis.” This is a respiratory disease. Other types of Fungi spread by Pigeons include “Candidiasis”, “Cryptococcosis”, “St. Louis Encephalitis”, “Salmonellosis”, and “E.coli.” Some of these, you’ve probably heard of, others are just as harmful. When we inspect homes and buildings for Pigeon infestations, we try to connect the dots. We’ll look around HVAC units and ductwork where many Pigeons will nest. If we see something, there is much work to be done. Many of the above types of Fungi spread disease, which is transmitted through the respiratory system and can eventually affect other parts of your body.
Pigeon droppings are also very bad for business. If you were out shopping and encountered two retail stores right next to each other, the first covered completely with bird droppings and cooing Pigeons and the other being completely clean where would you go?
We’re going to take a guess and assume that most people are going to tie the appearance of the store to the products or experience inside. Bird droppings are disgusting, unsightly and can cause not just a financial loss in business, but also a drop in employee morale. Who wants to visit anywhere that is surrounded by Pigeons constantly flying, landing, cooing, dropping feces, and feathers. Did we mention the awful smell that permeates the entire surrounding area? Pigeon droppings are no joke, but we specialize in comprehensive cleanup services. We’ll clean up every bit of Pigeon droppings you have on your property with industrial rated, High PSI power washing equipment.
