Knoxville Bird Control
Protect Your Business from Property Damage & Health Concerns

These birds can also transmit diseases to humans through airborne fungi in their droppings.

As a local, family owned and operated company, we understand the importance of protecting your business’ reputation. This is why we will promptly dispatch a licensed or certified pest control specialist who will provide service we guarantee you’ll be pleased with.
Why Bird Control Is Important
The droppings of pigeons contain a fungus which produces an acidic secretion that will deface and slowly deteriorate surfaces such as the side of buildings, ledges, and sidewalks. The longer an infestation is in place, the more difficult it is to remove droppings and the more expensive it is to restore the corroded surfaces.
Pigeons are also associated with many diseases in humans and domestic animals.
The following diseases have been linked to pigeons and can cause death:
- St. Louis Encephalitis
A list of more than fifty non-lethal diseases, ranging in effects from respiratory problems to food poisoning and severe headaches, have been found and verified in typical pigeon populations.
Pigeon Control Methods
Various methods are used to destabilize the East Tennessee and Knoxville pigeon population, such as repellents, mechanical devices, and non-lethal chemical treatments.
As pigeon populations are different in size and roost preferences throughout the area, any or all methods may be used in a particular case. The important part of a bird control and pigeon management program is a continuous follow-up service to prevent new infestations. Complete cleanup of the roosting area is also advised after the initial population is removed. Our experienced professionals can protect your property, your employees, and the public from Knoxville bird control problems.
