Will homeowners insurance pay for pigeon damage?

Depending on where you live and the nature of your pigeon problem, you may be able to make some claims to your homeowner's insurance. The big factor in this will be the cause of your pigeon problem. If you suddenly find you've got a bird problem because you've been negligent with your home repairs, the insurance company will see this as your fault and probably won't help you. If you live in a city where pigeons are just a part of life, there may not be anything you can do to stop them from visiting your property from time to time. In this situation, pigeons can be seen as "acts of God," and the damage they cause might be claimable. If you have a pigeon removal issue, it may be in your best interest to consult with a wildlife removal company to see why this problem exists. Remember, if you can be seen as at fault, your insurance won't cover your costs in most situations.
