Pigeon Control for Municipalities in Illinois

Pigeons living in bridges, signs, parking garages, warehouses, and commercial buildings pose a nuisance and a health hazard. Our team expertly controls pigeon colonies in Illinois by humanely solving pigeon problems.

When people walk under bridges and overpasses, pigeon droppings pose a risk to their health. Pigeon droppings transmit the fungal lung disease Histoplasmosis, and in addition to being dangerous, they are a smelly and unsightly nuisance. We remove pigeon colonies by installing humane bird deterrent systems that get rid of pigeons and keep them from coming back.
