Your porch is the grand stage of your front yard and is the first thing neighbors and guest see when looking at your house. If it’s covered in bird droppings, they may worry what the inside looks like. Learn how to ward off birds while keeping your porch looking good with these ideas!
Decorate with Faux Predators
Birds have trouble distinguishing between real and fake predators. Capitalize on this by incorporating faux predators into your front yard decorations. Options for decorative yard defense include:
- Carved wood predatory birds
- Seasonal scarecrow (decorate for every season)
- Rubber snake, positioned where birds perch most often and more!
Hang a Reflective Wind Chime
Wind Chimes are a great way to decorate your porch while discreetly warding off birds. The chimes should be shiny enough to reflect sunlight, maximizing their effect. The bright reflections and noise will scare birds away.
