Pigeon Droppings on Your Roof? Here’s What You Need to Know

Living in Sun City, Arizona, you’ve probably noticed the abundance of pigeons. They might seem harmless, but have you seen the mess they leave behind? Pigeon droppings are more than just an eyesore—they’re a serious problem for your roof and your health. 

Let’s dive into why pigeon droppings are such a big deal and how Green Machine Pest Control can help.

Why Are Pigeon Droppings a Problem?

Get rid of pesky pigeon droppings with expert help from Green Machine Pest Control.

Health Hazards

Did you know pigeon droppings can carry up to 60 diseases? That’s right—these droppings are not just gross; they’re dangerous. 

Diseases like histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis can be transmitted to humans through the spores in dried droppings. It’s not something you want to mess around with.

Roof Damage

Beyond the health risks, pigeon droppings can seriously damage your roof. The high acidity in the droppings can corrode roofing materials, leading to costly repairs. If you have solar panels, the situation gets even worse. 

Pigeons love to nest under the panels, and their droppings can render them inefficient. Plus, when the wind blows, those droppings can fall off the roof, making a nasty mess on your patio and even in your pool.

Why Pigeons Love Your Roof

Pigeons are always looking for shade, especially in the scorching Arizona sun. They tend to roost and nest on the north side of rooftop air conditioners, roof returns, under solar panels, and anywhere else that provides a bit of cover. 

Once they’ve found a spot, they’ll stick around—especially if they’ve hatched an egg there. These birds are so persistent that they’ll nest right on top of spikes meant to deter them. So, just putting up a few spikes isn’t going to cut it.

How to Get Rid of Pigeons
