Many of Virginia'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 Virginia'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 Fairfax 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 Centreville animal control for wildlife issues.

Centreville Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a pigeon's natural diet?

Whether you are keeping a pigeon as a pet or you have a flock of hungry birds in your lawn, it is important to know what you can, or cannot feed these birds. Animals do not have the same digestive system as humans do, this means that they are not able to tolerate the same foods that we are. If you are feeding your pigeon the wrong food, it could lead to some serious health issues. If you notice that your pet pigeon is looking under the weather, it might be a good idea to chat to your vet in order to ensure that you are feeding it correctly.

The natural diet of a pigeon in the wild consists of whatever seeds and grains are readily available to them, this includes:

1. Grains like corn and wheat should never make up more than 50% of a pigeon's diet as it can lead to illness.
2. Fruit and vegetables, if you have a pet pigeon you can finely chop raw fruit and vegetables for your bird, it is part of the diet that they eat in the wild.
3. Snails and worms. Even though pigeons prefer fruit to snails and worms, they are opportunistic eaters and will eat what is available to them.
4. "Human food". Pigeons are scavengers and will eat what is available to them; this includes bread, cooked meat and unsalted peanuts. Even though this should make up a minute portion of their diet, if you have a pet pigeon and it ingests some of your food by accident, it should be okay. It might even enjoy some egg or cheese.
5. Water. Make sure that your pigeon has fresh, clean water available at all times.

What not to feed pigeons

1. Chocolate
2. Coffee
3. Alcohol

It should go without saying that these foods should be avoided by all pets, yet people don't always think a small amount will make a difference. These foods could kill your pet pigeon, and although wild pigeons are much more tolerant of these substances, it should still not be fed to them on purpose.

Can I buy pigeon food from a vet?

There are a variety of bird feeds available on the market. It ranges from seed mixes, to seed balls that will give your pigeon the illusion that they are working for their food.

If you have a pet pigeon, the ideal is to give them an amount of fresh food every morning and allow them to eat it during the day. It should be finished by nightfall and replenished the next morning. This ensures that your pet does not eat spoilt food and will prevent them from getting sick.
