Will rice or alka-seltzer kill a pigeon?

You simply can’t ignore the point that within past few years the population of pigeons has grown in great numbers and this has become a matter of great concern for property owners. The main point to highlight here is that actually pigeons are smart birds and most of the times they depend upon humans for their survival to a greater degree. They prefer to live near people and consider taking residence inside buildings and houses where human population is present. It has also been noticed that pigeons like to live up at high places so you can find these upon ledges, roofs, beams as well as courtyards. You need to be very much careful because according to experts approximately 60 diseases are carried by these birds and they can transmit these. It is a matter of great concern and in situations where you notice that there is heavier infestation of birds giving importance to cleaning is very much important.



You should use all the available resource for getting rids of these birds and in this section we will focus upon the question that will rice or alka-seltzer kill a pigeon?

RICE

It is believed by majority of people that rice can be used for killing pigeons. However, you should be careful and must use dry rice. Main idea present behind this concept is that dried rice expands after being exposed to liquid. This means that when pigeons eat dried rice there stomach gets fuller and it can even burst. However, you can’t be sure about this myth besides birds are considered as experts at regurgitating so this method can bring results but not to a great extent. Nevertheless, it can be used for driving away the birds for some time. Just keep in mind that pigeons can’t be killed with rice so try something better and more convincing.

ALKA SELTZER

Now this is another material, which is considered as useful for dealing with pigeons and it is also based on a similar concept. The main idea is that with alka seltzer gas will get accumulated and this will make the pigeon to explode. Again there are suspicions related with this concept which you need to consider. There are natural mechanisms present inside the pigeons that will allow them to survive. Again it is not that much useful, but you can still give this concept a try for getting inner satisfaction.

From the above mentioned points it is very much clear that for killing pigeons you will have to use more effective ways as things can make a big difference. Rice and Alka Seltzer are used based upon myths so you can never be sure about the results which they deliver therefore it is better to be careful.
