Are you having problems with pigeons on your balcony?  This is a common problem throughout the building and we have a few suggestions for you to solve this problem.


Some helpful hints to get rid of them and keep them from coming back are as follows.


·         Remove all nonessential items from your balcony.

·         Clear balcony every day.

·         Any small space they may nest must be cleared as they are looking for a spot out of the wind.

·         Attach a slinky to the railing; it makes it an unsteady perch. (Slinky’s are a child’s toy that may be purchased at the Dollarstore.)

·         Also shoot them with a water pistol, it is very effective.

Use caution when cleaning the droppings from your balcony, you should wear a protective face mask as the dropping may carry disease.


Please also be aware it is the policy of the Board of Directors to issue fines for infraction of the bylaws if these problems go unattended.


Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
