    Pigeons

    Hi Everyone,


    I am just wondering if any of the property owners have had any issues with pigeons, and is so, what would be the recommended course of action in order to get rid of them?

    Our property manager is saying that after we left, quite a few pigeons have decided to spend their time on our roof and around the house.



    Many thanks in advance!

    PLastic OWLS will help.

    They scare away other birds.
    Ask your property manager to position a couple of owls on the roof.
    They should be moved frequently.

    we have an issue with sand cranes here.
    the plastic owls dont scare them

    They definitely will, and most likely not only around the house, but in the whole neighbourhood! Apparently there are wild peregrine falcons on the island, I saw a picture posted on "Aruba Flora Fauna" facebook group https://www.facebook.com/ArubaFloraFauna/

    Thank you John!
