Will rice or Alka-Seltzer kill a pigeon?
The populace of pigeons across the globe, particularly in some parts of the US is simply uncontrolled, particularly because most of the homeowners feed them, so where the sources of food are, they are there as well. Repelling the nesting places of the pigeons have been the biggest concern of the public. Pigeons are smart birds and they are also independent, but they may depend on humans to survive at times. They will live closely where humans are to get some food and they will also occupy your home for their roosting place. The birds want to be in a higher place, so the roofs, attic and the upper part of the building are prone to pigeon infestation. There are more than sixty diseases that are being carried by pigeons and their droppings as well. That means that where there are infestations, cleaning up must be on top of your list.
How about the use of rice or Alka-Seltzer to kill the pigeons? Is that effective? Will it help in stopping the infestation in an area? Well, for some, they do believe that rice can be of help in killing the pigeons. However, it must be dry. The concept behind it is that the dried rice will expand if it will be exposed to liquid, so if the pigeon will eat the dried rice, there will not be so much room in the tummy and the pigeon will burst out. However, things would have been that simple, but it is not. It is just a myth that you must not believe in, because that will not work. The birds are good in vomiting, if you haven’t noticed that, they are good in it, then you will be fooled. You cannot just kill pigeons using rice.
How about Alka-Seltzer? Is that effective? Will it kill pigeons? How to use it effectively? There are some deals that say that Alka-Seltzer will work in killing pigeons, since it will make the pigeons gassy and they will eventually explode. Oh! Come on, it will not work for them. They have the mechanisms that will enable them to survive. It is what they call burping, which is the same thing with humans if the stomach is full of gas. They also burp to release the gas. You will not kill the pigeons by simply giving them a dose of Alka-Seltzer. With these in mind, how can the pigeons by killed? Shooting them will be the best option, though there are places where shooting is not allowed. However, the use of the rifle is legal in some residential places and it is quite easy to use indoors where the pigeons are roosting. You can also use netting and spikes to prevent them from landing in your place.
