Pigeon control

what kind of pigeons are roosting on my building?

We have several species of pigeons in Tennessee including; the Rock dove, Scaley-naped pigeon, White-crowned pigeon, Band-tailed pigeon, Eurasian Collared dove, White-winged dove, Zenaida dove, Mourning dove, Common ground dove, White-tipped dove, Ruddy quail-dove and the Key West quail-dove. Of these pigeons the only one on the threatened species list is the White-crowned pigeon.  Tennessee use to have the Passenger pigeon before it went extinct.  Pigeons were never native to Tennessee.  In the early 1600’s European settlers introduced pigeons to the United States.  Today there are an estimated 400 million pigeons worldwide.

Why is pigeon removal necessary?

pigeon guano and the dangers involved

Pigeons are known to be the number one pest bird problem in Tennessee, in the United States and even around the world.  The pigeon feces can damage paint, leave a horrible smell and spread diseases.  Pigeons reuse the same location to build their nest leaving piles of bird feces that continue to grow year after year.  A flock of 100 pigeons can produce almost 5,000 pounds of feces, also called guano, in one year.  Pigeon droppings can spread diseases to both humans and livestock.  Just like bat guano, pigeon guano can cause histoplasmosis.  Histoplasmosis is a fungus that grows on pigeon feces and bat feces.  The spores from the fungus become airborne and can infect humans.  This disease spread by pigeons can cause chronic lung disease and even death.  Both cryptococcosis, which is another fungal disease, and psittacosis, which is a bacterial disease, can cause serious problems for anyone with compromised immune systems, children, or the elderly.  If pigeons get into the attic of your home or roost on ledges of your building call Complete Animal Removal.  We will get rid of the pigeons in the attic, clean up the pigeon feces, disinfect the pigeon nesting areas and apply bird prevention. 

where do pigeons live?

what do pigeons eat?

Pigeons thrive in urban areas using buildings, houses, apartments, businesses and condos for roosting.  The pigeons roost on the roof of buildings and homes.  Pigeons also roost in storefront signs, on light poles, on ledges, under bridges and many other man-made structures.  The pigeons build their nest with twigs and leaves on window ledges, roof returns, in the attic and any other covered areas that are up high.  

Pigeons feed on grains, seeds and fruits but will also eat scraps from the street.  Also pigeons only require one ounce of water per day.  They mostly drink from standing water and when pigeons are in the attic they will drink from the A/C pan.  Pigeons remember where they have a food source and will return daily to eat.  People commonly feed pigeons without knowing the dangers involved in doing so.


Pigeon Facts



Pigeons are monogamous which means they mate for life.  Female pigeons become sexually mature at just 7 months of age.  Between one and two weeks after mating the female pigeon lays eggs (1-3 eggs) that hatch 18 days later.  It only takes about one month for the baby pigeons to leave their nest.  Before the first set of baby pigeons leaves the nest more eggs are laid.  


Pigeons in the wild live to be 3 to 4-years-old but in captivity have lived to be 15.
