I'm dealing with a pigeon issue in a four-story senior citizen apartment building in a residential area. There are a few dozen pigeons roosting under one of the fourth floor dormers just above the tenant’s balcony. Avitrol is not appropriate because of secondary poisoning of seagulls. A contractor is going to do exclusion work, but first the pigeons have to be removed before cleanup can comm...

I have a house that has carpenter bees that we have treated. However, now the customer is saying that woodpeckers are digging into the wood of the house to get the larvae. What can I do to, and is there anything that will help?

I have a sparrow problem in a food processing warehouse. We have tried trapping, glue boards with water and seed on them, and shooting them, with limited success with all of the above. I am asking if you have any other suggestions as to what we can do to help this customer out. They are becoming a little upset.

I understand that Avitrol is no longer available since it has closed. I am wondering if this is still legal to use in the state of NY. I am having a bird issue in western NY and I was looking at implementing a program at the location. Can you please advise?

I'm looking for a solution to a problem with flickers, which are hanging around by vent screens, and may have gotten into one. They also are creating a mess all over the exterior.

In regards to Pigeon control I've been using Avitrol and it seems to work alright. I'm trying to up my productivity against this pest and wondering what your take is on "scary Eyes Balloons". Do these work at all or is it more of a gimic? The senior tech told me they might work as long as you move them around on a month to month basis. The boss says they just need to be installed properly so th...

I have a customer who just had an in-ground swimming pool installed with a very nice stone apron surrounding it.

Are there any solutions that I could offer this customer? She had one local person offer to fire off some sort o...
