A bit about pigeons

Pigeons, also known as Rock Doves, are a non-native species to North America having been brought over from Europe. These birds are one of currently 3 federally unprotected species in North America, but each state has different rules regarding their control. Pigeons can breed all year long, laying 2 eggs at a time that have a 17-19 day incubation time frame. Once the eggs have hatched, they have a 30-35 day fledging period.

What can be done?

Depending on where the birds are being a problem, there are many different methods available to remove problem pigeons. Netting is a popular method of all bird control, but it must be done properly or the birds will find ways around and continue to nest.
