Get Pigeons Off Your Roof Ridge

I you have pigeons perching on your roof ridge, you want to read this.

Pigeons are on your roof ridge for a reason. This is their look out perch. They are up there to watch out for danger. I live in a community surrounded by houses that have their roof designed with long roof ridges. Rarely do pigeons perch on my roof ridge so I tried to analyze why this was so.

Now I don’t have spikes or bird b gone gel on my roof ridge but the pigeons don’t like my ridge. This is what I believe is making them avoid my roof ridge.

When we purchased this house, I was a crazy Master Gardener, so I planted 250 plants and dozens of trees around the house. I think that pigeons don’t like my ridge, because the trees block their clear view of on coming predators. We have small hawks in this neighborhood so these pigeons want a clear view of any approaching predators.

I will keep watching out for this but I believe this is why they do not perch on my roof ridge. Trees are a cheap solution to Pigeon Control.




Getting Pigeons to move away!

The 2 Foot Technique

On the Pigeon Page, I mentioned that you must keep up the stress level if you want those pigeons living on your roof to go away. I did not have the room to mention this stress technique in detail.

Stress is the key, so if you spray your birds( yes they are your birds they adopted you) be sure to blast them with water when they are about 2 ft in the air.¬† At 2 they are just beginning¬† to over come gravity. At this point they are working very hard to get up in the air quickly. Don’t let up on your spraying until they are out of reach.
