  • We Can Solve It!
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 Fauquier 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 Warrenton animal control for wildlife issues.

Warrenton Wildlife Removal Tip: What kind of damage do pigeons cause in an attic

Pigeons are beautiful birds, but we cannot deny that they can be very annoying when attacking your space. They destroy your home environment with their voices and, worse, with all of their constant waste that you will often have to clean up. Pigeons can find several entry points for our homes, including the attic. It is not necessary to say that once they enter, the condition of your attic will certainly not be as good as before their invasion. Like machines, cars and our ventilation systems, the attic gets its share of damage caused by the presence of these birds in these areas. The damage stems from the fact that their feces accumulates over a long period of time. Here are some damages pigeons can cause in the attic:

Damage to the roof

The waste of pigeons is acidic. This means they have the ability to destroy the roof by the roof material absorbing acid, especially if a large amount of waste accumulates. These damages significantly reduce the lifespan of the roof by reducing it to 50% or more.

Collapse of the roof

These damages are usually rare, but they certainly affect low roofs. These damages are the result of significant accumulation of their feces over the years so that the ceiling becomes lower and lower every year, and the end result is its collapse.

Blocking ventilation systems

Blocking of ventilation systems can be caused when the pigeons establish their nest in that area. This situation is particularly dangerous as it can cause health problems for house owners. Materials that cause blockage prevent normal continuous airflow, which is dangerous to the health of those in the household.

Increases the likelihood of fire fatalities

The materials used by pigeons to create nests are flammable in nature. Such would be straw, twigs and feathers. You will certainly find some of their feces in the nest. They set these nests near the electric cables in your attic to increase its heating capacity, a situation which has the potential to cause a fire fatality.

In addition to damages in attics, we know that pigeons are flying contaminants of chemicals and liquids used in the production process. Packaged foods can also be contaminated, which results in a loss of one million pounds of waste per year. It is known that pigeons swirling around affects the vehicle paint by simple abrasion of the protective coating and paint. When the remains stay on the color for a long time, they cause even more damage to the vehicle. They are also known to cause heavy damage to industrial machines, air conditioners, insulation, coatings and so on. When such damage occurs in the machine, it poses a dangerous health risk to any worker working around it.
