PIGEONS on my window sills and outside air conditioner
[Return to Topics]

Any solutions for getting ride of those pesky NYC pigeons from my window sills and outside air conditioner base? They seem to be attracted to my flower beds on my window sills. They also make plops on my air conditioner. I've considered shooting them , but I don't want to disturb my neighbors or the police.

Had a similar problem. I bought an inexpensive picture (11x14) of an owl. I placed the picture on the inside of the window. The pigeons would land but upon seeing the picture made incredible noises and flew away. I left the picture up for about 1 month. No more pigeons. Best Regards, Doc

We had them in an apartment in LA years ago, and they were cute unil everybody's flour & cereal started crawling with mites. Then the mgr hauled out his trusty BB gun & went hunting. Most poisons are indiscriminate.

That's what I would do. Get out the old BB Gun and have a fun day. Quick, quiet,& all the other apartment dwellers will notice is all the birds laying on the sidewalk in front of the building. Be sure you don't lean too far out of the window aiming. From what I see on TV about those big NYC apartment buildings, it would be hard to tell the differance in you & the Pigeon poop if you fall out of the window.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I like the idea of hanging pictures of my local politicians on my windows. That should scare the living daylights out of those pesky pigeons. If that doesn't work I could always crank up a version of Ragtime Cowboy Joe played by the University of Wyoming pep band. OUCH!
