How to Keep Pigeons Away from Power Plants

Pigeons may consider power plants to be an ideal place to live, but that's insane. Here are some workable ways to keep pigeons away from power plants.

How to Keep Pigeons Away from Power Plants


By Carol Bradley

Have you ever seen pigeons nesting and revolving around power plants? Pigeons reside there in such a big number that sometimes it makes us think as if the very first reason for building these power plants is to provide a rent-free residence to these homeless birds. And if we have a keen look at the sight around the power plants, it supports this thinking a lot. A source of water, fields with grains, open-air, greenery all around, how come pigeons won't get attracted to such sights?


Damages Caused by Unwanted Guests

Pigeons may consider power plants an ideal place to live, but it is a nuisance for us. Their droppings cause many problems, such as corrosion and deterioration of the power plant structure. These droppings can contaminate sensitive and expensive equipment at power plants. And it results in high-cost frequent maintenance cycles along with loss of production. Moreover, they can cause safety hazards, too, by causing slip and fall due to their feces.

Therefore, it is important to get rid of pigeons near power plants. There are many known methods of getting rid of pigeons, but each of them has certain limitations, and we have to decide what method will work the best for us, keeping in mind both factors; the cost and the effectiveness.


Why Poisoning is Not a Good Option

Poisoning is not a good option because it may harm other animals and birds also, not only by eating the poisoned food but also by eating poisoned dead pigeons, and this may go up the food chain. If we talk about the results, poisoning may ensure the removal of pigeons for a short time, but this removal is soon compensated by the new birds because they reproduce very fast. Moreover, to see pigeons convulsing is not easy. Another shortcoming of poisoning is that the dead pigeons will cause a lot of problems. And if their dead bodies become trapped in machinery, it will be very difficult to get them out. So poisoning is not an appropriate way in this case.


Birth control

Pigeons reproduce at a very fast rate. So, a decline in the population of pigeons can be an important parameter. Birth controlling pills like OvoControl P and others can be helpful in managing their population. These pills and additives are added to the pigeons' food. When a female eats this food, her eggs lose the ability to fertilize. A 50% decline has been observed by using such food additives.

This method may take a longer time to show results, but it has been proved to be the most effective one in the long run.


Bushing and Conductor Covers

Power plants have some very sensitive equipment. This type of machinery, if not kept safe from intruders like pigeons, may result in serious damages. Therefore, make sure all such points are covered carefully with insulators to avoid any hazard.

Trapping

It is better to entrap pigeons than to kill them. Bird trappers are easily available in the market. They can be installed easily everywhere and can be customized according to one's needs. Trapped pigeons can easily be sent to any nearby forest. Hence, using live traps to catch the pigeons and then carefully disposing of them is a useful and efficient method of getting rid of pigeons from the surroundings of power plants.


Ultrasonic bird repellents

Although pigeon trappers are good, there is a demerit. A large number of trappers will be required to cover the whole power plant. So, modern technology helps us here. Scientists have come up with a convenient device. It is called "Ultrasonic bird repeller." It uses high-pitched, ultrasonic sound waves that are very irritating to birds and so for pigeons. But it is silent to almost all humans, and that is one of its salient features.

In addition, there are other audio and visual devices that can be used to scare pigeons.


Pigeon spikes and nails

Pigeon spikes, nails, or glass pieces should be placed on flat places and shelves, where pigeons land and stay. These sharp things keep pigeons from landing and gaining a foothold. But these are only useful for flat surfaces. These things cannot be used on wires, pipes, etc.


Destroying the nests

You should be careful about the pigeons' nests. Once you get some pigeons with their nests, you are going to face problems. So we must remove all nests to avoid pigeons. It will result in a decline in their growth and their gathering in the work area.
