I have a client who has a terriable problem with birds roosting in her trees. They mess all over the yard & pool area. Does anyone know of a chemical I could spray or a granular I could apply? PLEASE HELP!!!

Try hanging an owl decoy around the area. Should keep most birds away.

Fake snakes are also sold, that are suppose to scare birds away.

My former partner's step father is the bird guy at the exterminator company he works for. When he's not shooting them, he uses big shiny mylar balloons to keep them away. He used to do Tiger Stadium (the old one) and he'd put those up in the rafters to keep them from making nests.

Once he had to get rid of these big black crows at a business, and they wouldn't let them shoot the birds. So he got those glue traps they use for rats and baited them. Caught a ton of 'em on those things.

when i used to deliver pizzas. had a customer with bird problems, so they went some place and got a shot gun sound machine. set the timer for every 30 seconds it would blast and eventually the birds will stay away. oh yea, the pizza part. they called and ordered a pizza, forgot to tell me about the shotgun machine. i walk up to their door and BOOM i here that thing go off. i dropped the pizza and started running thinking i was being shot at...*l*

Run some temporary electrical lines to the trees and put in some spots lights. Either leave them on or rig up a movement sensor to click on. After awhile they will roost elsewhere. Might have to repeat it next season.

Try hanging those useless AOL cd's you get every other month.

I love the smell of Napalm in the morning. Although it sometimes has some undesired effects on the neighbors property.

I don't know how to keep them out of the trees but I can tell you how to make them all congregate in just one tree!

Park my truck under the tree and every bird for 15 mile around will be only in that one tree...... Honestly.:cry: :angry:
