Pigeon problems are common in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Here is a sample of pigeon problems encountered by residents of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Currently I live in an Apartment complex in Grand Rapids. I've had the air vents inside the apartment professionally cleaned because of a strange odor. But the smell is still there. There are a lot of pigeons nesting above the building. I have a downstairs unit. So why is my apartment the only one with the odor? The maintenance man mentioned that sometimes pigeons get stuck in the attic and fall between the walls causing a bad smell. Great, there are dead pigeons in the walls?? My concern is that I have a 3-year old. Is this a harmful and unhealthy thing to inhale? The smell is even worse when A/C is running. Bailey P.

We have noticed a pigeon problem in the steeple of an old church we are about to buy to convert into a community center. It appears the birds have been there for several years. Before we complete this purchase we need to know approximately what it will cost to get rid of the pigeons and clean up their mess. Ramona T.

Pigeons are pooping all over in two eaves at high point of roof. I need wiring or screening installed to block the eave access as my ladder is too short to allow me to completely block off eaves, plus I don't really know what to use. I just need to do something and the neighbors may be interested in the work you do, too, as these birds seem to be everywhere. Sandy A.



We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Grand Rapids and surrounding areas. Give us a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

Many of the projects we solve involve raccoon families in attics and chimneys, mud swallow nests on stucco, woodpeckers drilling siding, voles and gophers destroying lawns, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, bat infestations, skunks stealing pet food and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their noise and commotion and smell. Baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that my professional wildlife removal operators and I are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don't hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, pigeon waste cleanup, bat guano removal, mouse droppings, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

I have been in the professional wildlife control business for many years. My favorite stories and experiences are removing bats from schools and churches.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Bats from attics, eaves and belfries
  • Pigeons from rooftops
  • Swallow nests from eaves, stucco, log siding, and exterior walls
  • Voles that tear and dig up lawns and destroy root systems
  • Moles and gophers that damage golf courses and gardens
  • Mice from basements, attics, walls, crawlspaces, etc.
  • Feral cats from parks and neighborhoods

Grand Rapids Wild Animal Control News, Stories, Events and Alerts

Our most common wildlife removal requests in Grand Rapids, Michigan include squirrels:

We have squirrel problems and need professional help. One or more squirrels have entered the attic through the vent on the side of the house below the peak of the roof. In fact, it appears that they chewed through the wood vent. They are very noisy and it could be more than one. Mike D.

I keep finding black oil sunflower seeds in my attic. I occasionally see chipmunks around my home and in the yards and believe this may be the critter in the attic. But considering the number of seeds and the size of the poop, I also suspect it could be squirrels, which I have seen in the neighbor's yard. I need help in resolving my problem. Timothy C.

It appears that I have squirrels in the attic. Natually, they are active at night. Every night! I believe I know where they are entering the house. I had them in the home once before but that was years ago. Joyce E.
