Nothing beats relaxing and sitting on the porch during a warm summer night while listening to the bird’s chirp in the distance. However, the last thing any homeowner wants to do is clean up after those beautiful songbirds. The following tips are just a few ways to keep some separation between you and your feathered friends.
Use Household Items to Keep Birds Away
A trick to prevent pest birds from nesting on your property is to attach a small mirror to ledges where birds often try to nest. Setting up a mirror can trick birds into thinking there is another bird on the ledge and forces them to find a new spot. Also, any type of unexpected noise can startle a pest bird and scare them away. Birds tend to adapt to stagnant obstacles, but the unexpected sound of wind chimes is sure to startle any birds hanging by your property.
Store Any Food in an Enclosed Container
Birds will go to great lengths to find a new food source. If you decide to eat outside, make sure you either throw your food away inside or keep it in an enclosed container. This will reduce the smell and also eliminate easy access to food. Over time, birds will start to learn that your property is not a proper food source and migrate to a different location.
