Why are Pigeons Attracted To a Building?
Pigeons are commonly attracted to architectural buildings and man-made structures, utilizing structural protected areas that offer shelter from the environment. Pigeons will usually stay in these areas especially if they are fed, and have a adequate water source. Simple modification of certain areas experiencing pigeon problems can make a long term solution. Pigeons will commonly be drawn to level, flat ledges, I-beams, roofs, roof vents and AC units, shelfs, gutters, peaks, light posts, signs, and other area that offer protection. For warehouses with open bay or dock doors, this creates a open invitation, and pigeons will take advantage of. Pigeons are highly dependent of human activity, and will often be found in city buildings, parks, feed mills, yards, electric wires, bridges, and other structures.
Pigeon Damage From Droppings
Pigeons can create a huge mess of droppings and nesting that can hold bacteria and pathogens, as there are more than 64 human communicable diseases associated with Pigeon droppings. As the birds continually move over dried droppings, fungus spores or fecal particulates can become airborne. Histoplasmosis is one of the most common zoonotic diseases associated with pigeon droppings, therefore professional help is recommended. This can be a issue if roosting next to a ventilation system on a roof, directly overhead of a public walkway, or in a warehouse. Pigeon Droppings are so highly corrosive , we have seen them eat through metals. Droppings will accelerate the deterioration of a building, and increase costs of maintenance greatly.
