Admittedly, pigeons can be quite of a pest to our human existence. They often swarm in multitude in many of our properties and their multitude would often hamper us in living peacefully. Often, their presence is also a predicament in certain human activities, compromising costs and or investments in different proportions.
However, despite of that character, they still do not deserve to be inhumanely destroyed with the use of lethal control methods. Methods such as kill traps, petrifying gasses, and guns are listed as among the top most violent ways to kill pigeons and still a lot of people are using these approaches. Pigeons as species somehow do not deserve to be driven that way, lest kill them. In fact, having a particular crucial role in the entire ecological balance, they at least deserve to be returned to their natural habitat. However, returning them as well to their natural dwellings would be quite a challenge considering the proliferating urbanization of the places in the world. Their habitats are somehow reverted into very few locations. This is also the very reason why their habitations overlap with humans. Still we are the cause of their flight to our territories.
Fortunately, there are still those people who care about the pigeons existence and have somehow innovated ways on how to deal with them without truly hurting them.
These humane approaches should be used popularly instead of the contrary methods. Using these methods is one way of understanding the nature of their existence and thus at the same time fostering appreciation for them.
A common misconception from people is that when they use humane pigeon control methods, they assume that they are not as effective as using the lethal methods which they see to deliver immediate output - eradication. That's absolutely not true at all. Destroying a creature is never the sole effective way to get rid of it. Human pigeon control methods are enthusiastically innovated in order to cater two prongs of the pigeon problem - getting rid of the pigeons and not killing them at the same
