Las Vegas is a home to the Feral Pigeon
Many residential and commercial properties are subject to various hazards of the feral pigeon. Pigeons find the ledges of high buildings, a perfect substitute for sea cliffs, and have become abundant in cities all over the world. However, they are often considered a pest or even vermin, owning to concerns that they spread disease, damage property, cause pollution with their excrement, and drive out other bird species. Some also consider pigeons an invasive species, which is why pigeon control is so important.
The Pigeon has a restricted natural resident range in western and southern Europe, North Africa, and into South Asia. Its habitat is natural cliffs, usually on coasts. Its domesticated form, the feral pigeon, has been widely introduced elsewhere, and is common, especially in cities, over much of the world. A Pigeon’s life span is anywhere from 3–5 years in the wild to 15 years in captivity, though longer-lived specimens have been reported.
Contact with pigeon droppings may pose a small health risk to adults, children and pets. Three human diseases are known to be associated with pigeon droppings: Histoplasmosis, Cryptococcosis, and Psittacosis. Home owners should avoid all contact of pigeon droppings, whether it is through contact with the skin or inhalation.
