  • We Can Solve It!
Many of South 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 South 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 York 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 Fort Mill animal control for wildlife issues.

Fort Mill Wildlife Removal Tip: Will repellents get the pigeon out of the attic?

An attic also known as a garret is a big space that is found just below a pitched house roof or any other building. These spaces are usually neglected and for this reason uninvited animals find refuge in such undisturbed areas. Such areas usually provide shelter to pigeons as they usually build their nests in such areas. Such areas are also not easily accessible by large predators and for this reasons pigeons seek shelter in attics. Pigeons are commonly known to live in attics because such areas are usually in human premises and for this reasons, it is an assurance that there will be frequent foods for them.

Repellents used against pigeons

There are different repellents that people use with an aim of discouraging pigeons from visiting attics and human premises in general. Such repellents include the following.

1. Pigeon spikes
2. Use of man-made owls
3. High pitch sound emitters

Effectiveness of pigeon repellents

Pigeons are known to be very intelligent birds and hence they are able to maneuver through these repellents. Just as the word suggests, pigeon spikes are sharp spike-like items that are usually installed in attics. These spikes are usually for discouraging pigeons to move around the attics and this may result in the pigeons leaving for more comfortable areas.

Pigeons are one of owl's favorite foods. Fake owls may be put in attics as a way of repelling pigeons away as they may think that they are live owls. It is a perfect way of playing smart with the pigeons mind but with time the pigeons will get used to the fake owl hence this method becomes useless.

High pitch sound emitters are machines that are made in such a way that they usually emit sounds of very high frequencies. The sound creates uncomfortable environments as it affects the hearing ability of pigeons. At first, high pitch sound emitters may be effective but as usual, pigeons will get used to the sounds. They will take the sounds to be natural sounds at those particular areas and hence will not repel them at all.

Finally

Repellents are usually meant for driving away animals or even pests. In the case of pigeons, most repellents may work for a very short period of time but the pigeons are too intelligent to realize that the repellents are not of harm to their existence. All the pigeons do is to ignore the repellents or assume that they are part of the environment they are in.
