Natural Deterrents for Birds

While they've generally had a terrible reputation, pigeons are regarded as noble creatures in our history. Moreover, a developing absence of natural predators has made these birds a nuisance in urban areas around the globe,  despite a couple of species confronting (or coming to) extinction because of human extension. 

You will more likely have to adopt these techniques to deter pigeons from your home. Read on to find some of the most effective methods of deterring pigeons from your gardens and rooftops. 

1. Homemade deterrent sprays 

Prepare anti-pigeon deterrent sprays by blending stew powder, water, and vinegar and sprinkle around the areas where pigeons gather the most. Place "pomanders" of sharp flavors, for example, red chili powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and cinnamon, around your porch and outside window ledges, or any place pigeons will generally assemble. You can take an adequate amount of these flavors and envelop them by the cheesecloth or just sprinkle them along railings and ledges 

One of the most widely used methods of deterring pigeons and other birds is to use mothballs. The truth of the matter is that pigeons detest the smell. Mothballs don't pose any sort of threat to anybody, including the pigeons, they just dont like the smell. 

2. Bird spikes 

Bird spikes are a series of long, sharp wires extending up from surfaces on which birds like to land and conceivably nest. They are legal, common in many urban areas, and regularly prescribed as a humane method to deter birds. Whenever introduced effectively, bird spikes will keep bigger birds from landing anyplace on or around your business. Note that some smaller birds, for example, starlings and sparrows won't be deterred if you use these bird spikes alone. 

3. Plastic decoys 

This is the strategy to use to scare birds off. Decoys like scarecrows, balloons, plastic owls and plastic snakes can be placed toward birds off. This strategy may work for some time, however, birds mostly get on. Inevitably, they will become accustomed to whatever imitation you are using. Commonly they will transform scarecrows into a comfortable roost. The most ideal approach is to constantly change the positions of these decoys. This will keep the birds confused and cause the bait to appear to be lively. 

4. Netting 

Perhaps one of the oldest techniques to deter birds away from your property is to cover the problem areas with netting. It probably won't look good. however, it does the job perfectly. A couple of drawbacks to netting is that it tends to be a torment to introduce. Getting the correct areas protected or balancing nets inside the rafters of a structure will be a tedious job. Also, after some time nets can extend. This can prompt openings that birds can fit through. 

5. Hang wind chimes 

Another easy approach to deter pigeons from your yard, deck, or gallery, is to attach a wind chimes. Not exclusively are wind chimes lovely to tune in to on those somewhat windy summer days, however, they are a fantastic method to frighten away birds and shield them from arriving on your deck or porch. You can also search for other sparkling, loud and moving yard stylistic theme to help keep the birds under control 

6. Use reflective surfaces

This is an old gardeners' stunt to deter birds. A lot of us have seen this in practice. For example, it is expected to see gardens enhanced with CDs or other reflective surfaces. The reflective surfaces make a prism effect that, when exposed to daylight, can incidentally influence the pigeons' visual perception and make your yard an area that birds sidestep.
