    Default Pigeon Trap is Out

    My son put my pigeon trap out on the top of a service station. He'll leave it wired open for a few days and let the pigeons get used to going in and out. Results will be posted later.

    We have caught 11 under a bridge near my office in the last week.
    I went on a guided fishing trip yesterday and one of my buddy's was suppose to get the
    birds in the trap, but on my way home today, I see he did not get them.
    They fly really well.
    Good Luck on your trapping

    I find it to be a lot of fun trapping squabs. The building owners seem to like the free service that we do for them too.

    I had a private message from a visitor this morning. For some reason I could not open it. The title was "How do you trap pigeons". So here goes. I bought my pigeon trap from Lion Country Supply (dog training supplier). It has two one way doors (one on each end). Prop the doors open for a few days. Put food in the trap. Use either sunflower seed, wild bird seed or scratch grain. If you can, put some water in the trap. After a few days the pigeons will go in and out of the trap. After a few days, remove the props from the doors. The pigeons will go in to get food and will be trapped. Check traps often.

    The one way doors are simply bars that hang down that can be pushed inward but not out.

    Wayne, I have trapped thousands of pigeons and whole kernel corn is the way to go. It will keep the little birds away.

    Corn works for me too. I use the same idea of waiting two days before putting down the hatches!!

    The thunderstorm yesterday evening messed up the pigeon trapping. It washed all the seed away and probably caused the pigeons to head for cover. One step back.
