- Highlight awning with spikes
- Scare birds with decorations
- Hang protective netting
Awnings are a great way to accent your home, but they require a lot of care and maintenance. You must constantly defend against critters like birds because they will nest given the chance. Once a bird builds a home, it can become aggressive or leave unsightly and corrosive droppings on your awnings. Prevent your awning from bird devastation with these helpful suggestions.
Set Up Bird Spikes On Top of Awnings
Birds will build nests on awnings because they are easy to rest on. To prevent birds from becoming too comfortable, place small bird spikes where the awning connects to the house. This is the main area birds will nest, so protecting it is important.
Decorate with Scare Tactics
Setting up faux predators is an effective tactic, but it can be unsightly in your backyard. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to discreetly decorate your backyard while scaring away the birds. Some of these options include, but are not limited to:
- Wood sculpted owls
- A festive scarecrow
- Shiny decorative trinkets, and more.
Utilize Bird Netting
Bird netting isn’t solely reserved for agriculture, it can be used for awnings too! Annoy birds trying to hang around by simply draping the bird netting over the awning. However, this tactic rarely looks good in any yard.
