Pigeons in the attic or on the roof? Those pesky rock doves leaving droppings all over are common pigeons. Pigeons are notorious for causing significant damage to buildings, vehicles, property, and machinery with their excessive droppings. Not only do pigeon droppings cause odor and aesthetic problems in public places, but droppings can also increase the rate of building destruction.
