However, you might be worried about harming the pigeons, and not want to kill them. That’s no problem – there are plenty of DIY pigeon control methods that will shoo them away naturally and encourage them to go live somewhere better suited to their needs.

You’re happy, and they’re happy – it’s a win/win situation.

8 No-kill Ways To Get Rid Of Pigeons

Here are 8 no harm ways to get rid of the pigeons in your home and garden. Does this all sound a little (or a lot) overwhelming? Contact a professional instead. We know exactly how to get rid of pigeons – we’re the pigeon control london experts.

1. INSTALL ANTI-ROOSTING SPIKE STRIPS
You’ve probably seen this anti-roosting spike strips in train stations and urban settings. The spikes make it impossible for birds to nest, and that means that they’ll move on. Buy them from a garden centre and lay them out according to the instructions, and you’ll soon be waving farewell to your feathered friends.

2. INSTALL SLOPED SHEATHING
If you’re wondering how to get rid of pigeons on the roof, the best solution is to install sloped sheathing. This sheathing, constructed of metal, pvc, and/or plywood, is installed on an angle. Since pigeons don’t like slippery surfaces, they won’t build nests and roost on your roof.

Look for sheathing products that form a right triangle and a base that fits securely into the flat roosting area on your roof. But don’t stop there – you can also install sloped sheathing in your eaves, and on your windowsills, ledges, and flat areas.

3. GET RID OF ALL FOOD SOURCES
If you want to teach pigeons that your garden is a 24-hour buffet, you should leave lots of food out for them. However, if you want them to fly away and never return, you should never feed them! Say goodbye to bird feeders. Even if you love watching the prettier bird species eat from your feeders, pigeons will remember that you’ve left food out and keep coming back for more.

It’s a good idea also to eliminate berry bushes, seed storage, and stockpiles of dry cat and dog biscuits. Here’s another one you might not have considered – grass seed. If you keep laying down grass seed and it’s not germinating, stop seeding. Pigeons are very savvy food-seekers, and they’ll happily much away on your grass seed.

4. RUN STRING ALONG POPULAR ROOSTING AREA
This is one of the most straightforward solutions for pigeon pest control. Simply tie strings along the flat areas of your roof and eaves, approximately 2.5 cm above where the pigeons can perch. The string makes them lose their balance, which they hate, and so they’ll soon go away.

I have a tenanted property and am not local to it. James was diligent, professional and considerate with both the tenant of the property and I; giving us advice on how to deal with the rodent issue we had. I would highly recommend James and Pestcue to solve the problem First rate, honest and keeps to his word.

Been hearing scuttling for about a week until two nights ago when it sounded like someone was breaking into our kitchen. We went in to find a huge rat running around the surfaces. The next day we called James from pest cure and he was here within a few hours. During the visit he located the hole the rat was coming through & even saw the rat. By the time he left the kitchen was put back perfectly with two heavy duty traps hidden by the hole (non of those Amazon pieces of plastic). Although he said it could take a week, that night we heard a thwack and saw a dead rat in the morning. Called up James and he said he’d be here the same day to pick up the rat and fill the hole.For something that can make you feel so disgusting in a house, James sorted us perfectly and I highly recommend Pestcure. 10/10.

James is a very professional and knowledgeable pest controller. We are currently using his services for a bed bug related issue and he had been brilliant throughout the process, always able to fit in an appointment at convenient times. Would highly recommend him.

Unfortunately my issue with Mice in my flat was not resolved. James told me I had a “mild infestation” which I assumed would have been easy for a professional to deal with.Unfortunately, a bit more than a month after James’s initial visit, we still see mice in the flat.James was professional and explained that that there are holes in my walls which are large and difficult to reach which I understand and appreciate. Additionally, James was very responsive and came out to the flat a number of times to investigate the situation which is highly appreciated.However, I hired Pestcure to help me sort out an issue, paid their fee, but after a number of visits the issue continues to persist.Response to reply: I don’t understand why this is so disappointing to you. Imagine my disappointment then when I still see rodents in my flat after I paid your fee. I did mention that I appreciate the fact that you came out multiple times and I did mention that James tried his best. Also the claim that I did not close the holes is ridiculous and undermines your response. This is because I could not close the holes while James had traps and other rodenticides down there. I had to wait until James’s last visit before I took action with another professional.

Had bedbugs. Appointment was arranged quickly with Pestcure and James came for 3 treatments to get rid of our itchy friends.Was always easy to arrange the next step and James was always flexible and also let me know exactly when he was likely to arrive. James was always extremely pleasant and informative.Most importantly, the difference has been great and it’s been a fortnight (before the 3rd treatment) since we last saw a bedbug.

I can honestly say that pestcure is one of the best companies I have dealt with. My horses stable was plagued with rats and I was at my wits end! James knows his stuff 100% and I am so grateful that my horses food is no longer being eaten by rodents. Thank you so much Pestcure!

I would highly recommend Pest Cure. James provided excellent service and advice. He was very pragmatic and reassuring. The costs to deal with a mouse issue were very reasonable. The follow up was excellent and he went above and beyond to prevent further incursions by sealing up holes and grates. Overall, excellent, pleasant and professional service.

Highly recommend this company. James was so helpful and invested so much time with us to sort our problem. James’s was always on the other end of the phone to provide support and information and really cares about his clients to get the problem solved. Just want to say thank you to James as he helped me through a very challenging time!

Fantastic experience, James is v knowledgeable and has all the lot needed to remove any issues. Thinks about the client and is reasonably priced unlike other big big competitors who I feel don't have the same skill set. Would definitely re use although I'm hoping I won't need to!So my original review above was last year's issue, this year I had a larger rodent problem, called out James and yet again he's resolved the issue.Issues arose due to rodents living under an outbuilding. James' initial reaction was that it was a drainage issue. He was so thorough, put 2 x cameras down below the outbuilding, removed the decking himself and refused to leave the issue until it was resolved. He came out for 5 visits and after activity seen on camera for over 5 weeks, I've now been 11 days without an issue. This chap is the best in the business full stop, he's fitted drain valves (to stop the rat issue) and persistent rodent bait to eliminate the issue. If the issue comes back I know who to call, but I am at ease now because he has solved the source of the problem and has guided me on how to prevent it in the future. Absolutely brilliant experience and 5 stars really doesn't do his service justice.

James is an extremely professional and kind individual who explains what the problem is and gives his honest opinion. He follows up with good solutions and walks you through the how, what and why. Furthermore, he's helpful throughout the process and is happy to take any further questions or concerns. We used his services for rodent issues and the situation has been improving. Obviously some of it is down to construction issues, but he's more than willing to make you understand the underlying reasons as well. Would highly recommend his service.
