How to Get Rid of Pigeons on Your Roof

There are several ways to get rid of pigeons on your roof, and keep them off for good. Pigeons can be pests as well as a carrier of disease that could harm you and your family, so it is important to know how to get rid of them.

Call Animal Control

A good way to start getting pigeons off our roof is to call animal or pest control. Not only can they sometimes come remove the pigeons, they will also know of any local laws about getting rid of animals so that you do not wind up in any legal trouble.

Purchase a “Scare-owl”

Putting a fake owl on your roof could discourage pigeons from flocking on your roof, as pigeons are frightened of owls. Finding a weathervane owl would be optimal as it would move from time to time.

Plastic or Metal Spikes

If you continue to have problems with pigeons, you can purchase plastic or metal spikes that are designed to be installed where pigeons perch. Though installation can be difficult, it will make it impossible for pigeons to land on those surfaces.

Block up Attics

Block up attics, sheds and anywhere else that pigeons would like to build their nest. If they cannot find a place to build their home, they will probably move on.
