Flying Rats!

Pigeons are a mainstay of any urban city, however the dangers of them are unknown to many. Pigeons carry many diseases such as the H5N2 strain of the bird flu, or the H7N9 strain which can cause very serious illness in humans. In fact, there have been over 600 confirmed deaths from the bird flu alone, and that’s just one disease that these flying rats may carry.

Another concern is for the owners of businesses in areas with a high count of pigeons. Let’s set a scene and say you’re walking down a major street after leaving your apartment in New York City. You’re on your way to pick up groceries and come across an organic food store; however just as you’re about to walk in you see that their store sign is covered in pigeon feces! Anybody in their right mind would turn around and find a new place to shop after seeing how unsanitary this place may seem.

What do pests like pigeons search for in a nesting or landing place? The most common places for a pigeon to reside are roof tops and ledges, holes in roofs or walls, or rooftops, warehouses etc. Many people worry about these pesky birds damaging such property or the areas around it. Pigeons thrive in areas that have high rooftops, water irrigation such as gutters, and leftover food waste left behind by humans in public garbage cans. In other words, any urban town or city is the perfect home for these disgusting animals. The professional removal of these animals is recommended over any “do it yourself” tactics in order to ensure a safe, healthy, and humane course of action.

These flying rats are the cause of serious health problems, they hurt the pockets of business owners, and they inconvenience the everyday lives of regular people like you.

Wildlife and your Patio

Decks and patio spaces are great for entertaining on a nice summer day; but a wild animal may be using yours as it’s house. Many animal species can use a deck as shelter, to various degrees. It is important to make sure that your deck is well guarded against wildlife.
One of the most common ways that a wild animal will gain access to your deck is by digging a hole. Raccoons, foxes, squirrels, or skunks can dig slight openings under the edge of the patio to slip inside.If you see a dug indentation in the ground near your patio, you may have an invading animal.
Many decks have fence-like structures under them, rather than solid walls. This allows for snakes or rodents to easily navigate in and out of the space below the deck at will. Decks like this should be built with a metal mesh fence on the inside to prevent pesky animals from setting up shop below.

Prevent Snakes from Moving In

When a snake moves into someone’s backyard, it is because there are a lot of benefits for the snake in the area. Is your backyard a haven for snakes?
Snakes like to hide in debris and wood piles. If the side of your house has a pile like this, you could be providing a home for a number of animals; snakes included. Investing in a rack for your wood stack that raises it at least 6 inches off the ground can help prevent wildlife from moving in. Clear debris from near your house whenever possible.
Ponds, fountains, puddles in the backyard can be a watering hole for any number of creatures. For something higher on the food chain, like a snake, this can also be a good hunting spot, as other critters may come for a drink. Snakes will especially like to utilize a pond or water feature if there is ample shade near it.
Your landscaping can be a welcome mat to snakes. Vegetation that is close together and taller are ideal for snakes. Tall vegetation provides more shade for snakes. Plants that are closer together provide cover and shelter for snakes.
Make sure your home, garage, and shed are sealed up. Not only can snakes get in, but so could rodents. If rodents take up shelter in your buildings, snakes are more likely to live nearby.
Snakes are most active from the Spring to the Fall, because they try to stay dormant in the winter
