Pigeon Bird Traps

The traps are control elements that are used frequently in pigeons, crows and sparrows when they become a plague or a nuisance. This is a  bird control method to be used then on the use of locking methods and habitat modification, because if we do not remove the food source, or not impede access, the birds will continue coming to these places, representing its nest.

This pigeon bird control technique is very useful as an adjunct to prevention systems, such as skewers or wires, and animals that pigeons are very persistent and try to go near the places they have been treated, so that they may become trapped in the cages. These cages should be placed in quiet places and it is essential that people with "good intentions" do not release the birds.

It is necessary to put food (called pre-bait) into the cage, and leave the doors open, so that the bird colony is to become acquainted in 5 to 10 days. After this time, special gates are lowered, but not to let out. Pigeons or birds that are trapped for several days to serve as attractive to others, remains very important in constant supply of food for birds are not stressed. Cages can be reused for a long time. Because of this constant maintenance, labor is expensive. The method is widely used by municipalities in public spaces. Recommend relocation of birds caught in a place where they can live harmoniously without causing damage or nuisance to people.

In the end, we recommend contacting civil associations that are dedicated to protecting birds together to find a viable solution to resolve the problem without infringing on animal suffering. Beyond ethical and humanistic of the matter is very important legal advice before taking actions that may harm protected species.

Pigeon Information

Normally, pigeons feed on garbage and food scraps that are at your fingertips. An adult pigeon consumes about half a kilo of food a week. To facilitate digestion, ingested with food grains of sand or gravel, which will help crush the food. Pigeons build nests any material advantage from his own excrement, sticks, paper clips, wire or even other skeletons of dead pigeons. They have a great dependence on water. In fact an adult pigeon can survive without breaking down for several days without solid food, but they need water every day. The young are fed by a kind of white substance regurgitated by their parents. After 4 to 6 weeks, the chicks leave the nest. Mating can occur any time of year, but in spring and autumn are reproduced with special intensity. In town, to find good nesting, breed steadily throughout the year. In the wild live to 15 years or more. However in urban areas rarely exceed 5 years. They are birds that tend to move routine, breed and feed, always around the same areas. These birds are now considered as a pest bird in some countries in the world.
