What areas can pigeons enter a
Pigeons have strong connections with homes more
than any other species of birds. While they can
be good pets for the house, they can carry tiny
pieces of items with them frequently and they
use these tiny items to build their nests.
Pigeons can re-enter a house without any
assistance, and they can access a home from the
windows, chimney, doors, roofs, and through
cracks and moderately wide holes.
Through the Chimney
Your fireplace or Chimney is one of the primary
ways through which a Pigeon can gain access into
your home. First, when you remove the fire guard
of your home, a Pigeon nearby can fly through,
and secondly a pigeon can enter through other
ways and then settle into the Chimney. Abandoned
pigeons can be one of the most sought-after
places in the home for pigeons, and they can
start their nests with the tiny pieces of items
they bring in. Many Chimney related fires have
been linked to Chimney air-flow blockages caused
by bird nests and droppings, thus the easiest
way to remove a pigeon from your chimney is to
remove the tongs and fire guard and let it fly
away , then you must block-off its entry points
immediately, otherwise it will come back sooner
than you expect.
Through the Windows
Windows are very large and most pigeons who
accidentally fly into the interiors of homes
will normally watch out for opened windows.
Little openings within closed windows can also
be a perfect entry point for smaller pigeons.
Windows with improper seals may also provide
access to pigeons, thus it is often advisable to
have safe nets around if you often open your
windows for proper ventilation.
Through the roofs
Most Pigeons will prefer to hide and build their
nests in the roof, and the reason being that no
one monitors their activities in the roofs. From
the roof tops, pigeons will normally find their
way into the ceiling and create their nests.
Pigeons can create nests close to attics and
insulation wires in the roof and this can
trigger some fire accidents. Pigeons also create
their colonies more rapidly in roofs; they raise
their kids and also bring in foods. Pigeon
droppings and urine also build up rapidly in
ceilings, creating foul odors’ that can
constitute serious health hazards.
Small pigeons are known to find their ways
through cracks in walls and foundations and
wooden structures in and outside of a home.
Pigeons don’t stay in cracks; they only use such
as passage ways to establish their nests inside
Non-lethal traps such as one-way cages are the
best possible way to trap and dispose pigeons,
poisons and other lethal traps are not
recommended. Go back to the How
