How to use one-way exclusion funnels to remove pigeons without trapping them
If you wish to control the number of pigeons in your area, then getting rid of their food and water source is one of the best thing to do. Pigeons nest in your place, because there may be a good nesting site there, source of food and accessible water source. If you will not get rid of any of these, they will continue to roost in your place. Your attic will be at risk of pigeon infestation and you will suffer later on. It is highly suggested by the experts in pigeon control to stop feeding them in places like your yard. You also need to clean up all the spilled grain around your yard. Getting rid of the standing water around for pigeons to use is also important. You have to completely modify your property and make sure that they will be less attractive for these creatures.
Exclusion is one of the best things to do to get rid of the pigeons and to also stop the infestation. They can be excluded in your property when you use a one-way exclusion to funnel. It will block the access to the indoor nest, it is composed of a wire mesh, nylon net or plastic. Roosting on the shelves may be discouraged by altering the angle to more than 45 degrees. The metal sheet, wood, styro, stones, blocks and other materials can also be used and then fastened to the shelves to get the angle you want to have. The ornamental architecture may also be placed with a screen with just an inch of mesh polypropylene UV stabilized netting. It will prevent the pigeons from roosting and nesting. To make the netting aesthetically beautiful, it may be painted to meet the color of the structure, however black has been the prime option. The life span of the net may be good for more than ten years.
In a tool shed, roosting may be prevented by putting a screen underneath the rafter area with netting. The nylon netting may be stapled or affixed to the other part of the rafters to exclude the birds from the roosting. The panels may be cut into the net and the fasteners will enable the access to the rafter area to service the lights. You may also use the porcupine wires, which are mechanical repellents that may be used to exclude the pigeons. They are primarily composed of different spring tempered nickel stainless steel with sharp points that reaches the outer part of the angles. The prongs will be fastened to the base that may be installed on window sills, roof peaks and other places of the house where there are possible roosts. Excluding pigeons is possible, so there is no need be worried, but be sure it will be at the onset of the infestation.
