Default Pigeons

Hi all, could anyone recommend a good deterrant for pigeons please as I'm fed up with the mess on my decking at the front.

I,m told a .22 air rifle works, but maybe thats a bit too extreme
God knows what they eat but it takes some shifting

try plastic spikes ... you get kit and glue to do the roof edges for about 20 ..... some on my site use plastic models of hunting birds attatched to corner of roof.... no idea if that works tho lol

Hi, we have same problem apart from the mess, its the constant cooing in the morning. I bought two large plastic owls with revolving heads that move in the wind, sold as pigeon deterrents. They cam and sat at the side of them :-)
I now have the plastic spikes on me tv and sat aerials.

Somebody once told me a good size realistic toy snake makes them think twice about landing, depends if you can stomach the snake on the decking, might be worth a try, although I did later hear about an eagle or hawk taking a toy snake, you can’t win really.

I know you can buy solar powered bird scares for around 20 on eBay, don't know how efficient they are.

Farmers use a very good version of bird scarers for persuading pigeons from letting. They are quite noisy as they make a terrific bang at regular intervals. Personally, I wouldn't recommend them as the neighbours may get a little tetchy. lol.

Obviously, this is a tongue firmly in cheek post. I hope those who have a problem find a good solution.

from experience, get next door to get 2 cats, sure you will have to feed them but they will hunt your van for birds all day long, you will end up with no birds but can watch your dogs go mad at the door trying to scare next doors cats away, but the birds will all be gone out of your garden for sure.....

oh, and ?????? dogs must be on a lead, but cats can go s%*t anywhere, tell me how it works ? take the cats to the van, let them wander at will never see them all week spend 2 hours calling tinker bell then crate them up and take them home, why ? what is the point, leave them at home the neibours will feed them as they got no birds to feed have they !!!
