How to Deter Pigeons From Garden But Not Other Birds

Birds are not always garden pests. They help us get rid of parasites that intend to spoil crops or plants. But not all birds are safe for humans. For example, pigeons are carriers of various diseases. Pigeons only harm your garden in the UK. To prevent problems associated with them, it is necessary to scare them away and control their numbers.

Observe where most pigeons congregate most often. In this place, set up some kind of barrier for them. For example, stripes with spikes. You can find them in stores with household goods or garden goods.

Don’t feed the pigeons

Pigeons come in search of a food source. If you feed them at least once, it will be difficult to get rid of pigeons on your site. Therefore, never feed pigeons on or near your property. In addition, it is necessary to eliminate other sources of food. Do not leave seeds in the public domain.

If it turned out that you caught pigeons on the site, then the fastest and most effective way to scare them off is to direct a strong stream of water at them.

Also use reflective surfaces. The reflected sun rays from such a surface frightens pigeons, which prevents them from landing on your site. You can use reflective film, old CDs or foil.

Pigeons are contented intelligent creatures, which complicates the process of scaring, but this does not mean that it cannot be done. Try different options and then you will succeed.
