Should you ever trap a pigeon in a cage?
Some people would like to just keep the pigeons, since these are smart birds and they may also be lucrative. However, they are not meant to be kept in the suburbs like in your home, because their poops may contaminate the entire area, they can be kept in a farm instead, but if you do not have one, then it will be best to just get rid of them to stop the infestation. When the birds are not raised as pets, they become annoying creatures, they leave their feces anywhere in the property and that causes damage to the structure. In this case, they are no longer the source of enjoyment and fun, but they become the source of stress. There are several ways to trap them, but cage trapping them and then relocating them will not be a solution, since they are smart and they can go back to the site where they roost.
Live trapping is one way to get rid of the pigeons. The birds are smart and this is the reason why they were trained and used by humans for various instances from the ancient times to this day. Since this level of intelligence is what they have, you should know that when you do a cage trap. The right type of bait is important for them; you can check that out when you buy the cage. You can also be sure that the conceal of the cage upon buying it will make the bird easy to get in and it will not be shy. Some of the best kind of bait includes seeds that you may buy in a local supermarket. There is no need to get a nice and embellished trap for them anyway.
You will never trap the pigeons if they have to reason to come near the trap. Luckily, that may be done using corn daily. All you need to do is to get some corn and then spread that in a place where they are seen all the time. when the pigeons get used to the idea of getting the food without having to look for it, they will keep coming back to get more. As soon as you have them around, you may want to put some of the same corn in the cage to catch them. You must always keep in mind that pigeons are fast, so you must get a trap that is meant for them. If you will get another kind, that may hurt them in the process. The bird traps can be bought at a home or at a garden shop anywhere and they are not really harmful to the pigeons. It is just important to get rid of them in a humane manner.
