Though pigeons are a nuisance, we know that guano used to be very helpful. Of course, that doesn’t make it any easier when you’re trying to clean off the wall or the hood of your car.
Just picking it off with your fingers isn’t advisable however as the feces does carry several diseases that humans can contract. So if cleaning isn’t the best option, what do you do?
Disrupting a pigeon’s four basic needs is the best way to keep your walls and car as clean from that mess as possible.
- Food – The simplest thing to do is not feed them or make sure your neighbours don’t either. Make it easier to feed them elsewhere.
- Shelter – Pigeons roost. Taking away access to the interior of a building or other roosting spots is a great way to keep them from your roof.
- Breeding – It takes work, but having a ladder to remove nests is a must.
- Safety – Having natural predators around is the best option, but if you don’t have a falcon in your back pocket, try stand-ins like shiny metal objects and noisemakers to scare them away.
