Pest Control/Pigeons

Question
I have a problem with pigeons on my roof. I know there are bird repellents I can buy but the main issue is access to my roof to apply them. I have a very high 2-story house with tiled roof and getting up there is difficult and dangerous. Is there another method I can use to rid of them without having to get on the roof? Is there a liquid bird repellent that I can attach to my hose and spray the roof?

Answer
http://www.ianrpubs.unl.edu/epublic/pages/publicationD.jsp?publicationId=1300  read this pub as it gives you the realistic options. Ca is quite restrictive so you would probably have to get a pro to get access to repellents. But water alone can work if you are willing to spend the time, but few are.
