How to Use One-Way Exclusion Funnels to Get Rid of Pigeons

One-way exclusion funnels are one of the most effective ways of getting rid of intruding animals in your house or your barn. Although it has its successes, it doesn’t mean that it will chase the pigeons away from your farm, you can only install the funnels in an enclosed place like a house and this means that they are free to roam anywhere else except in your house. If getting the pigeons out of your house, let me teach you how to employ the use of one-way funnels.



One-way funnels have to be installed directly on the building for them to be successful. They have to be installed on the routes where the pigeons fly into your house. You can choose to have a cage at the exit point of the funnel, but if you are not ready to trap the harmless pigeons, then it is best to leave it open.

First you have to investigate all the openings in your house or the place from which you want to get rid of the pigeons. Depending on the condition of the house, there may be multiple entry and exit points. If there are several unmanageable holes, you should seal most of them and then leave open only those that you are sure you can be able to buy and install the funnels on. The sealing can be done with any material since the pigeons are not really chewers.

During the buying, you will note that the funnels have a broad end and also a narrow end. The broad end should be the entry point while the narrow end is the exit point. The point of having these two ends is so that the pigeons may be able to get into one end, but they can never be able to enter through the narrow end; it is just big enough for exit. The broad end is the point you will install facing the interior of the house while the narrow end should be to the outside of the house.

If you install them in the right way, then the pigeons can only exit the building but no entry can be made into the building. The good thing with these funnels is that they can be installed at any time of the day. The noise you make while walking up the roof or while going up a ladder will chase away some few of the scared ones. Those that remain will have to get out of the building through the funnels and they can never get back.

The downside of this method is using it on a place with so many opening, like barn, can be a problem. This is because you have to find and seal all the openings. Leaving a single opening unmanned can give the pigeons a chance to come back into the house and flourish once again. Go back to the How to get rid of pigeons home page.
