Smart Ways to Keep Birds Out of Your Buildings and Sheds


The sound and sight of birds in our yards can be soothing, but when these winged-creatures find their ways into our homes, businesses, sheds, and other buildings, they can quickly create chaos and become a nuisance. 

Don’t let your space fall prey to a curious bird. Follow these tips and tricks to keeping birds where they belong; outside. 

Scare away birds with visual displays

While these animals can be curious, they are just as equally cautious. Visual displays help to pose as a potential threat and deter birds from coming near (or past) the object. Displays that work best are:

  • Statues of predatory animals
  • Windsocks
  • Mirrors
  • Reflective tape and other shiny objects

Establish Bird Barriers

Birds will sometimes settle on top of your building because it is an ideal place to land, relax, and build a nest. In order to deter birds from doing this, you must make your building unappealing by creating physical barriers. Some examples include:

  • Placing angled boards along ledges
  • Painting a slippery glaze on flat surfaces
  • Installing bird wire or sharp objects along the edge of your building or in tight spaces.

Install bird netting

Birds can get in through the tiniest holes, finding their way into your attic, shed, drop ceiling, and more. What’s worst, is that sometimes you may not realize their presence right away, allowing them to create a mess that can lead to health and safety concerns for you and your family. Draping bird netting over these openings can keep birds from dropping in. Common places to apply netting are to:

  • Rafters
  • Chimney openings
  • Small or large holes
  • Gutters
  • Any other openings
