    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.

    :D

    put a couple of cats over there. after the birds no longer return then put a dog over there to get rid of the cats.

    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*
