Why Pigeon Exclusion Services Are A Must For Your Las Vegas Business
Birds are a common sight no matter where you live, but they can also be a common problem. Although people don’t always think of birds as nuisance pests, they can definitely fit into that category. In Las Vegas, your home or business can be negatively affected by pigeon presence. We’ll take a look at why pigeons are considered pests, what you can do to prevent them from causing problems, and who to call if you need help.
What You Should Know About Pigeon Behavior
Pigeons are grey or black birds that thrive in cities. They often come in flocks, meaning if you have one pigeon hanging around your business, you’ll probably have more soon. They roost on outcroppings of buildings, on air-conditioning units, in windows, near vents, and on roofs. Pigeons tend to roost near sources of food. If you have many pigeons near your building, there’s a good chance they’re finding food nearby.
Are Pigeons Bad For Business?
Pigeons poop. A lot. Not only is a business that is covered in bird droppings unappealing to clients, but it’s also dangerous. Pigeon waste can be slippery, causing liability issues. Along with this, an abundance of pigeons might leave a bad smell surrounding your business, and droppings and feathers can lead to the spread of disease. If your business is overrun by pigeons, your employees and clients could become sick.
As if this isn’t enough, pigeon poop can also erode surfaces of your building. Their constant roosting may damage the building as well. Pigeons are also loud; they make cooing sounds and may squawk at each other. They can distract from business and can cause damage by flying around warehouses or getting in the way of employees.
