Many of North Carolina's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving North Carolina's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Cabarrus county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Harrisburg animal control for wildlife issues.

Harrisburg Wildlife Removal Tip: Should you ever trap a pigeon in a cage?

Pigeons are trapped for different reasons and purposes. In most cases, one may decide to trap pigeons if they are causing any kind of nuisance to human beings for relocation purposes. Animal agents encourage relocation of pigeons instead of killing them. In other cases, pigeons may be trapped for keeping purposes. Pigeons may be kept as pets but only if the one keeping them will provide regular feeding and care to the birds.

Pigeon traps

Pigeon cages are the most common traps used. The cages are designed in such a way that they have a single opening. Inside the cage is bait mainly meant for attracting pigeons into the cage. The bait is used a trigger whereby after a pigeon gets into the cage and tries to feed on the bait, the opening seals off making it hard for the pigeon to escape. After trapping, then one should be able to decide on what to do with the pigeon.

Does trapping and relocating pigeons work?

Despite relocating being the most humane method of getting rid of pigeons that may have invaded one's premises, it does not work effectively. Pigeons are known to be so perfect in mastering the environment they are in. After relocation, pigeons may be able to trace their way back to human homes which acted as food sources. Despite their mastering ability, there are more reasons that may result to pigeons going back to human homes. Below are some of such factors;

1. In every natural habitat there exist predators. Pigeons are favorite dishes to predators such as foxes and so pigeons may end up returning to human homes in such of shelter from such predators.
2. Unlike other birds that move in large numbers, pigeons are not natural migrators. This means that they do not migrate frequently. They tend to maintain a single homestead as long as there is stable food supply and security.
3. The need for food may also be a factor making pigeons to go back to areas they were relocated from. They need a constant supply of food and hence relocating them to areas with minimal food supply may be disadvantageous to them hence making them trace their way back.


Trapping of animals should only be done with a reason. Pigeons should only be trapped for relocation purposes but if one wants to completely get rid of pigeons, killing them remains the most effective method.
