Understanding and Dealing with Pigeon Problems at Oil Refineries

You scan your oil refinery with pride. But seemingly out of nowhere, you spot something in the sky.

All of a sudden, you feel like you could cry.


Because that thing in the sky is an annoying pigeon.

Small pigeons may seem harmless enough. But the truth is that these common North American birds can cause your oil refinery a slew of problems.

For instance, they can hurt your business’s image. On top of this, their droppings may contain ectoparasites, bacteria and fungal agents that can pose health issues.

Pigeons’ droppings can also create dangerous surfaces leading to slip-and-fall accidents.

If you’re experiencing pigeon problems at your premises, it’s time to take action. Here’s how you can overcome your pigeon issues this fall.

Let’s get started!

Get Rid of Pigeon Food Sources

First and foremost, get rid of any food sources on your oil refinery premises that may attract these unwanted pest birds.

For instance, clean up bird seeds and grains that might make your premises a convenient place for pigeons to roost.

Also, secure trash cans as well as other waste sources.

Eliminate Pigeon Water Sources

In addition to eliminating food sources, get rid of water sources that may lure pigeons to your oil refinery.

Even just a tiny quantity of standing water may support a population of obnoxious birds.

If your property lacks water, pigeons will be less likely to choose it over another one that has water readily available.

Get Rid of Pigeon Nests

If you spot pigeon nests around your property, destroy them. You can simply do this by using a rake or even a tree branch.

If you do this every couple of weeks or so, this will keep pigeon eggs from hatching. The pigeons will eventually realize what’s going on and will take off to a safer area.

How We Can Help with Your Pigeon Problems

Another way you can finally bid adieu to those pesky pigeons for good is with our unique products, known as Falcon FrightKites.

These self-launching products can silently patrol the sky over your oil refinery. They soar high so that pigeons can easily see them even from a long distance.

Once pigeons spot your FrightKite, they’ll fly away in terror.

So, why exactly are our products so powerful? Because they essentially work on your pigeons’ inherent fear of birds of prey.

Pigeons are actually less fearful of you than they are of being attacked from above. After all, if they spot you on the ground, they can simply fly away. However, if they see a prey bird in the air, they can still be attacked right away.
