About Pigeons

A member of the Columbidae family, the pigeon was originally found wild in Europe, North Africa, and western Asia. Introduced to North America in the 1600’s, the pigeon is now an all too common sight in rural and urban areas throughout the United States. In addition to being a nuisance, an infestation of these seemingly harmless birds actually pose a serious threat to your home and family.

Pigeon droppings carry a number of serious diseases and can put you at risk for a number of different diseases including Histoplasmosis, Cryptococcosis and Psittacosis. These can potentially serious health issues. Pigeons can also cause costly property damage. As their native habitat is open areas such as  cliffs and rock ledges, they tend to gravitate to your home’s roof to nest. Over time these nests can compromise the structural integrity of your roof or gutters. Gutters can become clogged and malfunction, causing the water to overflow and damage your roof and possibly other areas of your home. In addition to structural damage, because the materials pigeons use to make their nests are extremely flammable, the risk of fire is increased.

To protect your home and family the hazards involved with pigeons and the damage they cause, it’s best to call the professionals.  If you’re in need of pigeon control in New Jersey, New York or Florida, AMCO Pest Control Solutions can effectively handle an infestation of pigeons or any other pests that cause a threat to your home and family.
