While birds might be pleasant guests in your backyard or garden, they can quickly outstay their welcome in your shed or garage. Often undetected for weeks or months at a time, birds can build cozy new homes in sheds and garages year-round when you least expect them. Here’s how to keep birds out of garages and sheds with Avian Control.
Use Visuals to Stop Unwanted Birds
Birds will be deterred by the sight of their natural predators, so using visuals can be an effective way to stop birds from taking over your garage or shed. This is a harmless and inexpensive option for bird control. Options for visual deterrents include:
- Silhouettes (wooden replicas) of hawks, owls and
other predatory birds
- Plastic coyotes, foxes or raccoons
- Barriers between windows or awnings
- Windsocks or shiny objects to distract pest birds
Install Netting to Reduce Bird Access to Openings
Netting can be placed in eaves and other areas of garages and sheds to prevent birds from gaining access in your buildings. It can also be used to fill holes and crevices in a building that would otherwise allow birds to enter the space. Good netting should be made of high-quality, durable polypropylene.

Put Up Obstacles to Prevent Landing Altogether
If a bird can’t land on the roof or surface of your shed or garage to begin with, it will likely choose a new location to build a nest and get comfortable. Here are several ways to prevent birds from landing on the roof, your garage or shed:
- Boards – Place on the ledge of your garage or shed at an angle over 45 degrees
- Glazes – Coat the roof of the building with a glaze that dries to a hard, slippery finish
- Bird wire – Place bird wire along the roof or ledge of the building
