Do Plastic Owls or other birds of prey work to keep pigeons away?


The problem( as I see it) is that the hawk is a bird of prey, meaning that it attacks from above. If this thing is just fluttering around in you're front yard, the pigeons will soon figure it out, same thing with just one sitting there. It is a short term solution

Do Plastic Owls or other birds of prey work to keep pigeons away?


My dad is an Exterminator in CT I worked for him for 3 years...the birds on the powerlines are the biggest pain in the ass. Because you really cant start shooting pellets at them not knowing where the pellets will land even after penetrating through the birds if you were to hit them. Fake birds don't do anything...There are different feeds you can buy that are toxic, but be carefull I'm not sure what your state laws are or animal activists will think of what that'll do to the birds. But there are feeds you can buy that maybe layout on the ground and when they start floppin' around remove them lol...But otherwise you may want to get your neighbors together and complain to your city about it and how unsanitary their droppings can be. Good Luck

I went & bought one today, it only cost me $13.00 so I figured why not give it a try.

I'll move it around every couple of days & see what happens & post my opinions on how well it does or don't work.
