Pigeon Trapping: How To Trap a Pigeon
Pigeons can be problematic and many Arlington pest control people turn to traps to keep them away. Large cages with one
entry will do the trick. The door of the trap should remain open for a few days so that pigeons get
used to entering it. Once they do, you can trap them easily next time they come. The main problem with

only temporary solution because they will easily repopulate the area. Airfields have a big Arlington animal trapping problem with pigeons since they can
