Lovebird Invasion

Technically we don’t have Lovebirds here in Arizona as they are actually a type of parrot native to the African continent. However, the euphemism of lovebirds do apply to Pigeons since they do typically mate for life.

When a pigeon couple mates up, they usually stick together for life and can reproduce new chicks year round. They will usually have a nest or two and keep it as long as they feel safe to do so.

If you have a couple of lovebird pigeons on your property laying eggs, you can count on new birds being born about once every 6-8 weeks if they are an “active” couple. This can be very bad news for you since pigeons living around your property can be destructive little pests.

Pigeon nests are especially bad since they will usually have more then one for each parent. They will spread a lot of next making material around and tend to have no problem pooping very close to where they live. This adds up real fast and can do serious property damage.

Not to mention all the disease they pigeons can easily spread.

If you notice lovebirds on your home using it as a nest, you should get it taken care of as soon as possible. The best methods are also the most humane which involve installing spikes, nets, and other hardware that keep them from accessing areas where they feel safe and comfortable to nest.

Of course you will need to scare them away first and clean up all the mess they made so they will have to re-create a new home. They are likely to come back when you finish, but once they see they can’t get back to the same areas they lived in before you put in the anti bird hardware, they will just move on to an easier target.
