  • Nesting Birds - HELP!

    I have a family of birds nesting in my gutter and on top of a permanent light fixture right outside my office door. There is poop everywhere, every day. I scrub the door, windows, walkway, etc but come back next day and it's a mess all over again. The front of my office is the tenants first impression so I need to get this remedied immediately. I have done some research and see that a fake owl might work well? Or bird spikes (which I think sound inhumane). Has anyone had this problem and successfully gotten rid of the birds for good???

    I thought the fake owl was to keep away woodpeckers.

    Let me do some research and see what I can find.

    Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can do today.

        Well, the plus side is that they hatch and fledge quickly because birds are protected. As soon as the babies are able to fly, dismantle the nest (wear gloves, birds have mites that bite) and put something to cover it. An owl ~may~ work. The gutter is an easy solve with a gutter cover. Plus an owl -which you can dress up if you' re so The light fixture? Hang cd's over it. Seriously, the spinny silver thing repels birds.
        I was born to be wild, but only until about 9:00 pm.

          Do you know what type of bird it is. If they are Pigeons they are considered a nuisance bird and here you can take care of them. I would ware gloves and move the nest.

            We just started last month renting on line and it is working good so far. We have Kiosks and there is not a lot of difference But you know nothing is perfect. I guess you could call it the future.

            We use storEDGE and have been asking for the feature since 2014 when we switched from sitelink stand alone. We were told that they would be adding the feature soon, and that has yet to ever happen. We offer RV Storage, and so say if a customer comes in on the 15th but won't need it until the 1st, we...

            My wife and I ran a property down in Dallas. We were right down town in a very bad part of Dallas. Lots of transients and drugs were rampant. The reason I mention all of that is it did not make a difference to us. When we left one my homeless people that I had to bicker with fairly often came up...
