How To Deal With Pigeons Issues?

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Ustadh Farid Dingle

Question: Is it permissible to kill pigeons that are damaging my home and vehicle?

Answer: Bismillahi al-Rahman al-Rahim.

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your good question.

It is permissible to kill animals if they are damaging your property. Please see: Mercy Killing of Animals to End their Suffering

The question here is whether or not the occasional dropping really constitutes “damage”. Unless it is excessive, it wouldn’t really seem to be “damage”. See: How To Recover The Car Paint Damage From Bird Droppings for more details.

Perhaps you could get a cat, or try shooting the pigeons for food on the weekend. Please see: Hunting with Modern Rifles

I pray this helps.
