While our pigeon control solutions typically vary depending on the unique needs of the situation, we offer an effective method to reduce pigeon populations. It includes pre-feeding the pigeons an attractive food source that is later altered to include a substance that results in sterile eggs.

If you discover a bird’s nest around your home and there are no dangers associated with the birds being there consider letting it alone.
