How to Keep Birds from Nesting on your Home

If you find yourself suffering from pigeon or bird problems that are nesting on your home, you’re not alone. These birds can cause a lot of problems and can bring mites, lice or fleas – all which can be bad for you or your pets health. Pigeons also tend to add constant droppings around your home. These droppings should be cleaned regularly, otherwise, they can bring diseases that can be dangerous for your family. As you can see, it’s important that you learn about how to prevent pigeons or other birds from nesting on or around your home. Here are some useful tips that you can follow, so you can prevent birds from creating their nests on top of your home:

1. Use an ultrasonic bird repeller

This is the easiest thing that you can do to remove pigeons from your home completely. This device is going to produce a disturbing sound wave that is undetectable with our ears. It uses an ultrasonic sound to repel birds on your home. Most birds, including pigeons, are going to be afraid of this type of ultrasonic sound. This type of device usually covers up to 5,000 square feet of area. You can use a battery or long cord for operating this device – depending on the device chosen. Be aware that these devices have mixed reviews. Some consumers swear by them, while others swear AT them.

2. Use bird spikes

This is another popular tool that is available on the market. As you have probably known, pigeons usually like to sit and nest on your roof. They usually sit around your deck, balcony, patio, and yard. When you can prevent them from sitting on top of your roof, you can prevent them from nesting on your home. You can block pigeons by using bird spikes that are made from shard steel. The installation process can be done very quickly and easily. You can use screws, nails, or heavy-duty adhesive for applying these spikes on your roof, just be cautious that you are not creating a leak hazard in your home. There are specialized screws with washer seals that can keep a good seal on your roof.

3. Apply a bird repellent gel

When you want to get rid of pigeons from your home, you should consider using a bird repellent gel. Using this gel is an effective way of preventing pigeons or other birds from nesting on your home. This type of gel is usually transparent. When pigeons approach this gel, they will be disturbed by its repulsive scent. The sticky feel on the gel will bother all birds, so they are going to leave your home immediately. This bird repellent gel is safe for everyone because it contains no toxic chemical substances. It also has received more favorable reviews than the ultrasonic bird repeller.

4. Install automatic water jet

Removing pigeons from your home should never have to be difficult for you. You can consider installing this device around your home. This device works by blasting spray of water to get rid of all pigeons effectively. It comes with a sensitive motion sensor that can activate the forceful sprinkler immediately. The detection range of this device will be around 30 feet. The water jet sprayer can be installed around the areas where the pigeons usually come. This device is going to use water that is, of course, safe for everyone – except for the Wicked Witch of the West, so that’s just an added bonus – and come on, an automatic water jet?! That’s just awesome.
