Too many pigeons perching on your business sign? Or perhaps they like to gather above the doorway to your store and leave their droppings on your clients? Pigeons are one of the worst of urban pests. In fact, they are comparable to rats. They exist in large numbers in urban environments, can cause extensive structural damage and offer serious health risks unless dealt with effectively.
The first signs of pigeons in Calgary would be seeing them hang around open areas of structures followed by pigeon droppings building up in gutters, down spouts, and roof top areas.
Each year in Calgary pigeons cause extensive damage to a variety of structures. Pigeon droppings carry many diseases when left unchecked represent serious health risks. On residential properties pigeons perch on open roof tops, gutters and other objects. They force there way through soffits making a home on the interior of the roof.
The rock dove or rock pigeon are pale grey with two black bars on each wing. Domestic and feral pigeons very in colour and pattern. There are few visible differences between males and females. Pigeons have a high reproduction rate. The average life span is three (3) to four (4) years in the wild.
If you feel there are too many pigeons in and around your property Peregrine experts can help you to get to grips with the problem. We usually start by concentrating on eliminating perching and harbourage areas – usually those tight corners on roof tops where upper and lower roof lines meet, as well as gaps or holes in the roof line. Once the harbourage and perching areas are removed the pigeons typically move on within a few weeks.
Very efficient, professional, and good workmanship.
Peregrine General Pest Control was referred to us by someone who had used their service for a problem with mice. We hired them to deal with pigeons at a condo complex with 18 units, and they did the job well. Also, their price was half of what we got from another company.
Nick responded to us very quickly and had the work done in a timely manner. The roof of the condominium is very steep, so it required quite an effort to even climb up there. Nick told us to call him right away if there were any problems down the road, and he would take care of it.
We have had no sightings of pigeons or droppings since the job was completed. I would highly recommend Peregrine General Pest Control.

Thanks for the great job!
We installed solar panels on our roof and found that it did not take long for pigeons to be attracted to the roof. We had not had a problem previously so it was related to the solar panels. We had Peregrine look at the panels and make recommendations. We decided to have a barrier installed along the edge of the panels. This was done efficiently and per the quote. The barriers are like the spikes installed under bridges to prevent birds from roosting on beams and supports. The barriers have eliminated the problem with birds. Thanks for the great job!
