Pigeons And Needle Strips: Does This Work?

It is a well-known fact that pigeons like smooth surfaces best when they land, which is why they prefer window sills, roofs, ledges and so on. Of course, this is also the main reason why they tend to nest on human properties, while in the process; they cause quite a great deal of damage. Pigeons and needle strips do not go well together and for the simple fact mentioned earlier. If you install needle strips on areas of the house where pigeons usually choose to land, you will prevent them from being able to roost and make a habit of it.

As pigeons will avoid needle strips you will soon discover the birds will move on and will try to find other smooth surfaces to land. In case they do not find them, they may choose to go for other, more friendly, homes where they do not encounter this much trouble. However, you should keep in mind that installing needle strips everywhere pigeons might sit can be a little expensive. Pigeons may still find some places to land, such as directly on your roof, so you will still have to fight their intrusion on a constant basis. The good part of this method is that it does not hurt the birds, and it can be used for a long period of time.
