Probably the most effective control is exclusion. You EXCLUDE them from the area. This, sometimes, is not an easy proposition. Bridges and other super structures offer may areas that pigeons enjoy roosting on, and depending on how these structures are built, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to exclude the pigeons.

Physical barriers consist of bird nettings, constructed of needle sharp barbs which are designed to keep the birds away from a roosting area. They help. However, the bird will gather sticks, leaves and other debris to cover the barbs, and if they are not maintained, the pigeons will beb back. Netting also helps, but both methods need to be installed, sp planning and how these devices are to be placed is very important.

The pigeons will exploit every crack or crevice, and will certainly find every flaw of your well planned exclusion effort. Although pigeons are not very smart, they are creatures of habit and will try to return to the same places as before.
