How to keep pigeons out of a barn
The pigeons will usually hang around and then eventually nest around in the barn if there is a nearby source of food. Though, they are cute to look at, they may be unwanted and annoying since their droppings can bring diseases, plus the fact that they can also eat some of the grains in the farm. The barns are meant to give shelter to a cow, but it can also provide a safe haven for pigeons. One of the many features of the barns that made the pigeons attracted to it is that there are only a few timbers that restricts the air flow, it also gives them a perfect place for roosting.
If there are pigeons around, how can the cows live there and eat, since the birds will eat the grains that are meant for the cow and other animals. The barn will be contaminated with the droppings of the birds and it will also be noisy. It will not be the best place to keep your cow anymore, unless you will do something to stop the bird infestation. Birds can also carry and spread diseases that will be risky for humans and for the animals as well. According to a biologist, pigeons carry salmonella, E. coli as well as the Campylobacter.
These are the 3 diseases that may be transmitted to a cow and may spread to humans as well if the cow that will be eaten by human beings are infected with the said diseases from the droppings of the pigeon. Though, it seems that the cows do not have an issue with sharing the barn with the birds, if the disease will be transmitted to humans, they can bring GI distress and even mortality later on. There is a prevention and wildlife control damage series available at the county extension office. It states the proper ways to control the number of pigeons and other wildlife animals in an area.
There are suggestions on how you can get rid of the pigeons by using exclusion method and tools, modifying your barn, repellent, trapping and shooting. In a lot of dairy related operations in the farm, the actions commonly observed by the people are exclusion, repelling and scaring the pigeons. Some suggestion says shooting may be done, though few people do this, particularly in the barns, since some of the cows may be hit by it as well. If you will also try to shoot the pigeons in the barn, your next issue will be the moisture that will rise in the barn, there will be an increase in moisture as the spot vent shows off in the roof. Some other methods to solve the barn infestation may be seen in the series offered by the county office, you can check on them to not worry about it anymore.
