We have over 15 years of cumulative pigeon experience and have successfully removed birds from many buildings in the Las Vegas area. The products we use have proven effective time and again for more than 50 years. Their exceptional design and construction allows them to survive long term exposure to the elements and their maintenance-free performance sharply reduces the frequency and cost of exterior maintenance made necessary by these pest birds. In addition to the benefit of a cleaner, healthier and far more attractive environment, many of our customers have reported a significant cost recovery within just a few years.
Many buildings in the Las Vegas area that have pest bird problems are almost always infested with feral pigeons. The Feral pigeon is a non-migratory bird that lives in one location its entire life, eats anything it can find, and nests in sheltered areas like; roof top eves, under air conditioning units and on structures with over hanging roof lines.
Here is a list of just some of the problems caused by these pest birds:
The following are pigeon services Progressive offers and recommends:
Progressive Pest Control recommends a Flock Dispersal Program. At the start of the program our technicians will place bait at central locations where the pest birds feed to start a routine for the animals. Then Avitrol, a poison with flock alarming properties used for the control of feral pigeons, will be placed at the bait locations, and once ingested will cause the effected to react in a way that will frighten the remaining flock away and then die. This process will be completed with the removal of the deceased birds.
As a non-lethal alternative for pigeon removal Progressive also offers a bait & trap program. Much more involved than our lethal option, our pigeon trapping and removal program requires site selection, trap installation, pre-baiting, trapping, bird removal and a follow up service. To ensure full pigeon eradication this program lasts a minimum of four weeks and may extend further if needed.
To ensure these pest birds have no reason to loiter on your property we also recommend implementing a combination of some or all of the exclusion methods offered Progressive Pest Control. Once the nests of the feral pigeons are removed these areas must be sealed off in order to ensure they do not return and rebuild. Such exclusions are done using an exclusionary fencing or netting to enclose areas under eaves, overhangs and around air conditioning units. Another set of products we utilize are bird spikes which can be installed on ledges, above windows and on signage to stop perching and roosting.
To eliminate the heath risk at your site all nesting materials and debris will be removed and safely discarded and all bird droppings and build-up are power washed away using a natural enzyme based cleaning solution. The washing and disinfecting of problem areas will leave the your property clean and sanitized when the service is complete.
Progressive Pest Control is back with better, stronger, and more efficient pest control solutions for your homes. Our newest service addresses one of the most overlooked yet truly conniving vermins of the pest family: Pigeons.
While it’s not every day that birds get labelled as pests, certain situations can make you realize that these creatures that innocently flap their wings and randomly poo on air are such big troublemakers – especially when you have solar panels installed on your house’s roof. Let me tell you why.
Recent technological advancements have certainly made the world a better place to live in. Our energy resources, for example, are constantly innovating. After all, with the amount of energy we require to go about our lives normally, we would need a renewable source that replenishes fast and effectively. Luckily, we have this great big ball of energy just floating right above us and the best part is it never runs out.
That’s right we’re talking about the Sun – the closest star to our planet. In the past two decades, solar technology has been improved and innovated for domestic use. Before, only big power plants and technological giants can afford to install large solar panels to solar light energy to electricity. Nowadays, the costs of solar panel installation has diminished considerably that even the common man can afford to light up his house naturally if he would set aside a few thousand dollars for it. The efficiency of solar energy as an alternative power resource has certainly improved over the years.
Nevertheless, it is not without challenges.
The Problem With Solar Panels
If you plan to switch to green energy, the most efficient way to do it is to have solar panels installed in your home. While the sun is not the only source of natural energy (there’s also wind and hydro-powered conversion devices, after all), it is still the most abundant and accessible. You don’t need to be in a specific area or to meet particular weather conditions to harvest solar energy.
Since the sun naturally rises and sets every day, you have a steady source of power. People who experience long winters might be at a disadvantage but there are still ways to store enough power to last half or all the way through the cold months. However, in order to have your solar panels harvest as much energy as they can from the blazing sun, they have to be situated in a place that’s closest to the hot ball of fire. And which place could possibly be more perfect than the roof?
Solar panels are almost always installed at the top of the house. These wide energy-absorbent discs are often laid down in rows on the roof of homes. For many who already have these panels installed, I bet you can relate when I say that pigeons are a true nightmare.
If you’re wondering why, it’s because of these two unappetizing words: Bird poo.
Bird Poo Problem? We Can Fix It!
You can have the cleanest and greenest home in the planet; you can use green energy all you want. However, this wouldn’t save you from the reality that wild pigeons have grown fond of taking a dump on top of your house. Since roofs are likely to be uneven due to the design or pattern of the material used, laying solar panels on top would create hollow spaces in-between – the perfect depository for randomly dropping pigeon poo. In fact, I could imagine birds intentionally making a stop to take a dump once they get used to the idea of your roof being their regular bathroom.
Aside from being totally unhygienic, these dirt deposits may turn into a much bigger problem later on. It can cause all sorts of germs and bacteria to spread and may even endanger the health of your family in the long run. When it rains, you also risk your house being overcome by horrific odors that are enough to make your eyes water. Anyhow, bird poo deposited in the hollow spaces between your solar panels and roof is never a good thing.
This is why we offer to remove it for you.
