How to Rid your Attic of Pigeons
Pigeons are grayish birds that feed on grain and seeds. However, they like living undisturbed in buildings. Pigeons mostly live in house attics and no other parts of the house. This is because rarely will anyone ever visit the attic, and also the fact that the attic often has multiple access points that they can enter through and also make quick exits when faced with danger. What are some of the ways that you can use to keep your attic free from pigeons?
Using One-way doors and funnels
These are funnels like structures that are narrow on one end and then wide on the other. The wide point is kept in the building with the narrow end pointing to the exterior of the attic. This ensures that the pigeons can get from the attic into the wide entry point of the funnel and then exit through the narrow end. However, there is no entry point into the attic since the narrow end does not allow entry. This is an effective method only when you have a well-kept attic that has few openings.
Use of pepper
For many centuries, pepper has been used to get rid of many pests from farms. However, if you sprinkle some pepper in your attic, it will also act as a deterrent to pigeons and if you repeat the sprinkling a few times a year, then there is a chance that the pigeons may disappear from your attic completely.
