Pigeons In Barn: How To Exclude Them

Pigeons are birds that thrive in almost any setting; they live in large groups and generally create large amounts of unsightly, hazardous waste in and around their living area. Pigeons are adept at finding their way inside buildings in order to roost and build their nests – usually constructed from small twigs and built on covered ledges. Pigeons can pose a threat to the health of humans and animals and if pigeons are in your barn, you must learn how to exclude them.

Excluding pigeons from a building such as a barn is tricky as there are many access points for the birds to use. Ideally, a bird net should be used to cover the access points – this can be done discreetly and, when looked after properly will provide over ten years of service. It may also be a good idea to use pigeon spikes within the barn in order to prevent the birds roosting and nesting. The best way to exclude pigeons from a barn, or any building, is to make it as unattractive as possible, this means making it impossible for them to roost and removing all food sources as well as making gaining entry as difficult as possible.
