How to Repel Birds

The snow is melting, the grass is getting greener and the sweet melodies of birds migrating back to Michigan fill the air. The sounds of birds chirping may sound pleasant at first, but the messes they cause when spring is in full swing may not be so pleasant. Here are a few ways you can repel noisy birds so you can enjoy the warmer weather without their droppings.

Short-term Bird Repellent Methods

Whether you need to repel birds from your home, crops or professional business, here are few quick methods you can try:

  • Bird Gel is a transparent, sticky substance you can caulk onto surfaces. Birds dislike the feeling and remember not to land on that surface, but it will need to be replaced often and you will need a lot of it to cover large surfaces.  
  • Flash Tape is a brightly colored strip of shiny, metallic ribbon that you can tack or nail to a high post or branch to deter birds from the area. The ribbon sways in the wind to distract the birds and can be moved around. Works best on windy days.scarecrow
  • Noise Makers come in a variety of options, from electric to manual shakers, and work as a scare tactic to repel birds. However, if used frequently they may cause you more annoyance than necessary.
  • Netting is generally for larger areas to keep birds away from produce. Setting up the netting is long and tedious, especially since a single tear will render the netting useless.
