    Talking Die Pigeons, DIE!!! - New Video!




    Someone in the pro area mentioned my old "Pigeon Video".

    Well I found it and some other pigeon video clips that I had saved and edited myself a new video for you guys!

    As you will see, these are only regarded as Flying Rats around here and as despised as Cock Roaches!

    I found this similar Pigeon Trap online as to what i found in that video... http://www.bird-evictors.com/pigeon_traps.htm

    I was working on newer carrier yesterday with 6 inches of pigeon sh!t in the condensor section along with 2 baby pigeons that were almost ready to leave the nest. My co-worker who had gloves on grabbed the baby's and asked them, "are you baby birds ready to fly" and then he tossed them both over the 30 ft. wharehouse building we were working on. Only one survived the drop. I felt kind of bad at first that he did it. But after taking another look at the big pile of mess in the unit. I realized it had to be done.

    Must be no tree huggers there

    we have problems with seagulls - giant flying rats


    dang it they are protected - you can't bother them or their nest if there are eggs in it
    you can however remove their nesting material before they lay eggs
    we have plenty of tree huggers and greenies here that would go after you in a Heart beat if ya get caught.

    I've been dive bombed numerous times - I usually carry a fliter on my head and a pvc pipe I stick up in the air to stop them getting too close

    For seagulls, just carry some Alka Seltzer tablets. When seagulls get bothersome, toss an Alka Seltzer into the air. Seagulls will snatch up anything you toss in the air and eat it. The Alka Seltzer kinda makes them explode internally.

    Great video. No love lost for dead pigeons. I had an account with a bad pigeon problem and every time I went there I ended up getting sick. That is scary. We have other accounts near the lake that we have to send two guys during nesting season to fight off the seagulls while one guy works. They will dive bomb you and hit you on the head.

    I bet that cleaning cooling towers out there is a real b!tch! We have pidgeons here also, but nothing like that!

    Just remembered a job I did years ago in Alexandria, VA for the dept. of the Navy that had a massive amount of pigeons all over the place. Then came the Mexican drywallers and the pigeon population decreased continually after lunch each day. Yep; these guys were catching and cooking up pigeons for lunch right on the jobsite.

    I LOVE it!!!

    And that's the truth. You feel bad for a second, then you look at the facking MESS AND DISEASE and kick the baby Pigeons right off the roof!

    I found one baby Pigeon before that was hiding in the shade. I got it out in the open and kicked a field goal right off the edge of the roof I was working in!

    I was also told to put Alka Seltzer into a pice of bread and feed the pigeons and make sure they have some water to drink.
    Then watch them DIE in the same manner!

    OMG really? Dive Bomb? Crazy!!!

    Oh I hope you didn't jinx me now! That would SUCK to clean out of the water panels!
    LOL so far I haven't been to a tower with a Pigeon Problem. Maybe there's not enough shade or place for them to roost like there is under an RTU on a stand?

    Ahh no way!!!

    When we moved to south Chandler, AZ as kids we were the poor white kids living in the hood with a lot of immigrants from down south. All of our friends were Mexican and many times one or both parents were born in Mexico. So basically we saw a big culture difference form ours.
    We would catch Crawdads (I forget the spelling for them miniture Crabs) from the streams near the golf course and the parents would boil them up and eat them!

    I had fun catching them, but I never did eat one. Yukk!

    I was just going through some of my videos and realized why Pigeons don't occupy those areas....






    Listen to that start up and tell me if that wouldn't scare the sh*t out of some Pigeons down in there sipping on some of that nasty blue water in that cooling tower!

    These Mexican (assumption because they were Hispanic who spoke no English and kept to themselves) workers cooked their lunches every day. It took the rest of us a while before we realized they were catching and cooking up pigeons. Worked out for all of us.

    Crawdads, crayfish or whatever you want to call them are good eating. It just takes so many to make a meal. More like little lobsters then crabs. Real easy to catch once you get used to putting the container you want them to go into behind them while you approach them from the front.

    ************TECHS BEWARE******************

    cryptococcosis or histoplasmosis

    Pigeon crap contains the above fungal infections. (potentialy fatal and benign till too late)The fungus spores are airborne. At the very least, a tyvek suit, disposible gloves and a mask that filters down to a micron should be worn. Even after all the debris is removed, the spores are still there and in the air. The area has to be decontaminated.

    Hey Payson, becareful on that roof if it's wet that thing is slicker than snot on an icy door knob, the first one I ever worked on had a low spot in the middle of the roof, and there was always water on it, anyway I was walking across it to get to a unit both hands full, and figured I'd just wade across, it was only a couple of inches deep, got to the middle, zoom feet flew in the air, did a back flop in the puddle of water and you guessed it pidgeon shat, man I was so pissed off.

    Pidgeons are good for improving your shooting ability though, they're easy for the first shot, but they can sure learn how to dodge the shot after that

    Robo, I never did like seafood too much. So I caught them but never ate them. I'm more a steak and potatoes kind of guy.



    zzonko, Yeah I've heard that there are dieases in their filth!

    If it's wet, you slide in that sh*t. If it's dry, it goes airborne when you disturb it!

    I swear I'd have a CO2 BB Gun in my toolbag if it's didn't get me into trouble just because it looks like a real gun.

    In Payson,AZ the techs carried RIFLES in their work vans and it was OK!
