When you are looking for a professional company that can deal with your pigeon problem, one of the types of companies that you may come across in local telephone directories will be pest control companies. The pigeon is a pest animal, so it is natural to think that a company that describes itself as a pest control company will be able to deal with the problem. In some cases they will be willing to take on the work of dealing with your infestation, but it is important to consider what they will actually do, and whether or not they are the best type of company to handle your issue.
What Is The Specialty Of A Pest Control Company?
Pest control companies are formed to deal with a specific type of pest, and the majority of these companies will focus their expertise on dealing with insect infestations. The techniques that are required when removing ants from a garden or dealing with termites that are eating through the floorboards are not necessarily the same as those that are required for dealing with birds that are flying in to an attic.
The Actions They Will Take
The most common approach that a pest control company will be familiar with is the use of poison to kill any animals that are causing an issue, and it is true that there are a small number of poisons that are licensed for use against birds that are causing a problem. The main issue here is that this isn't what a bird removal expert would do when dealing with a pigeon infestation, and laying out poison can have some very harmful consequences.
Problems With Using A Pest Control Company
The use of poison means that there is a strong possibility that you will subsequently have to deal with any pigeon carcasses, as they will very rarely fly away from their nesting spots to die. Poison can also be harmful to other animals, and a pest control company will rarely have the expertise to target the poison effectively enough so that it is only the pigeons that are harmed.
Who Should You Use To Solve Your Pigeon Problem
There are plenty of bird and animal removal professionals who deal with pigeon problems regularly, and if you are looking for someone to deal with a pigeon issue, make sure that you are hiring someone who has the experience to solve your problem, and will also do the work to ensure you don't have another infestation in future.
