Will repellents get pigeons out ?
Even when you are fed up those pesky pigeons pooping everywhere and making you home a smelly disaster, you don’t want to kill them. The thought of trapping them and then having to deal with relocating the animal doesn’t appeal to you either. Now you are asking friends and family, searching the internet, and even asking the guys down at the feed store what to do. Somebody comes up with the bright idea of pigeon repellents. There are lots of different types of repellents they can range in price from 10.00USD to over 1200.00 USD. Here is a list of the more common from cheapest to most expensive. Scare tape or ribbon is a stiff Mylar or metallic tape that is highly reflective and makes noise when it moves. While its movement or sound might startle the birds, they just avoid the immediate area of the tape. Repellent gel is supposed to frighten the bird away through smell and consistency. It is extremely unsuccessful. The product is applied like caulk to ledges, around opening, and to areas that the birds roost on.
Fake predators- rubber snakes, plastic owls, tinsel hawks, etc. These may startle the birds when they initially appear because of their approximate size and shape, but not for long. They don’t really look right, they certainly don’t move right, and even thought pigeon’s sense of smell is not acute, they don’t smell like predators either. Another high priced Bird proof Repellent gel is supposed to frighten the bird by giving it the sensation of being trapped when they step in it. The product is applied like caulk to ledges, around openings, and to areas that the birds roost on. This sensation, in theory, will frighten the bird so much it won’t return. The pitfalls to this are obvious. The gel eventually dries or wears off, and once the bird is loose it can avoid the area. Another form of repellent is a high frequency emitter. Often these systems are coupled with a flashing light. The premise is simple. The ultrasonic sounds are emitted in bursts that are supposed to disorient the birds and frighten them away. Again, once the bird realizes that it cannot harm them, it gets ignored. While thousands of desperate and gullible homeowners will waste a huge amount of money on these useless gimmicks, the smart ones will remember – Prevention is always the best cure.
