How to Get Rid of Birds

Pest birds can pose a serious problem for homes and businesses.  Bird droppings not only corrode roofing material but also create a major slip hazard. Birds promote secondary pest infestations and can become aggressive to passers-by during periods of nesting.

In the Caribbean, pigeons and blackbirds are typically the main culprits. Pigeons in particular flock in large numbers and their populations grow rapidly, making removal challenging. Because they have evolved to survive off of food scraps from humans, pigeons and blackbirds tend to invade high traffic urban areas.

Bird Removal Tactics

The simplest way to discourage birds from flocking to an area is to remove their food sources, however in busy urban areas this is not always a practical solution.

If birds are causing problems for your property, there are a number of tactics that you can try:

  • Removing access to potential nesting sites (for instance by putting barriers over window ledges) can be an effective bird deterrent.
  • Keep any possible food sources well hidden.
  • Make sure bin lids are secure and rubbish bags are not left in the open.
