Wildlife Control for Hotels and Motels
Pigeon Control

Pigeons use a variety of habitats but are most common in and around urban areas or large man-made structures. Hotels and motels are often prime locations for pigeons roosting and perching. The longer the birds stay in the area, the more numerous they will become.

Pigeons nesting under building canopies can become a serious inconvenience, as well as a health hazard for your guests and employees. Accumulations of pigeon droppings and urine, or guano, can be hazardous to human health and can damage structures, necessitating expensive repairs if the droppings are not removed appropriately.

For example, pigeon droppings contaminate an area with bacteria and fungi and can harbor several serious diseases, including salmonella and histoplasmosis. Their nesting and perching can cause damage to the structure, and in some cases their nests can be hazardous, especially when they are situated on or near light fixtures.

Bird feces are also particularly damaging to metal and painted surfaces, and they will often leave stains etched into the surface, even after cleaning and disinfecting. This is due to the corrosive nature of their droppings.

The best way to prevent damage is to eliminate pigeon perching and nesting activity. Most pigeon problems will require a combination of treatment techniques.

Solutions

Denying pigeons the ability to perch and nest can be accomplished in a variety of ways, depending on your building structures. Options include exclusion netting; bird wiring; metal screens; electrified deterrent systems; gel repellents; visual deterrents such as lasers, reflectors or other light-emitting devices; and even sonic and subsonic repellents. Often the most straightforward and inexpensive solutions are the most effective.

In addition to repelling or excluding the birds, we might also suggest population reduction. This can be done in a variety of ways, but trapping is usually the most cost-effective and efficient. Trutech® technicians are experts at trapping pigeons, and our trapping techniques can often remove large numbers at one time. This type of service can be done on an as-needed basis or as a recurrent service, similar to pest control.

Our team is focused on providing a permanent, quality solution to your pigeon problems.

Snake Control

Snakes pose a potential hazard to your guests and employees, and their presence may indicate other problems such as an infestation of rodents – a favorite food of hungry snakes.

While snakes tend to stay outside, they frequently find their way into buildings. If the snakes are venomous, there is the obvious risk of a venomous snakebite. But because it can be difficult for non-professionals to easily determine which snakes are venomous and which are not, all snakes should be treated as a threat and removed from your property.

In areas where snakes are common, it may be necessary to take a proactive approach to snake control and prevention. This requires an ongoing, professional snake control program.

Solutions

Snake control and prevention begin with an on-site inspection and consultation by a Trutech® technician. He or she will look for snakes around your hotel or motel and will remove any snakes found.

Our technician will also assess the accessibility of your buildings for snakes, including doors, utility entry points and vents, plus potential habitats such as landscaping or wooded areas. Since all snakes require specific habitat types and foods, our professionals can often tell which species are most common in a particular area.

For ongoing snake control, we offer two options: One is snake trapping in a particular area for a set amount of time. The type of trap and duration depends on your hotel or motel’s unique circumstances.

The other option involves a combination of techniques – trapping, reduction of food sources, manipulation or modification of the landscape to make the area less desirable and sometimes a snake repellent. This aggressive snake control service is typically provided on a monthly basis. It is unique to Trutech and has been perfected over years of testing and experience. This approach often yields the best results and is usually the best option to keep hotels and motels as safe as possible.
