How To Get Rid Of Pigeons In Your Home

October 16, 2017

You may be wondering, “How to get rid of pigeons?” Getting rid of pigeons isn’t as easy as you may think. They are easy to attract, but they’re not so easy to keep out of your home. Thankfully, there are several ways to get rid of pigeons in your home. One of these methods involves using essential oils to repel them. You can mix a few drops of one of the oils with water or vinegar and pour it into a spray bottle. You can also use cotton balls soaked in the oil and place them where the swarm is occurring. These scents will irritate a swarm of squaws, so they’ll stay away.

One of the first things you should do is control where the pigeons are gaining access. Try to find a secluded area, such as a backyard or garden shed. This way, the pigeons can’t access food or water. You can even make it harder for them to enter your home by capping chimneys and blocking their access to these areas.

Another way to control pigeons is to fill in any holes in your siding or roof with a thick layer of tar. This way, the pigeons can’t stand on it. You may have to line the entire area with these spikes to get rid of pigeons completely. While these are the most effective methods, you may need to use a combination of these strategies.
