Hi All,
We have a real issue with Minor Birds – I can live with having to sweep all the bark back on the garden, but they come into my patio and perch on my outdoor chairs and poop all over them – It is awful. I have tried putting up wind socks but they don’t seem to be working. HELP…. Anyone got any ideas?

Ask your question

  • I hope the hawk worked. I would have suggested covering your patio furniture with a tarp when it’s not in use.



  • I like the idea of fake snakes or fake birds.



  • omg – thanks will be going to bunnings for the hawk!!!!



  • Fake snakes didn’t work for us. We got a fake hawk from Bunning. you hang it up and it moves in the wind. it’s been fantastic



  • you guys rock – thanks for sharing!



  • Safeway have statues of birds,give it a go!



  • Yes would like the answer to this too. thanks for asking!



  • There are also these that are supposed to work. I know our garden centre sells them.



  • It’s not the best look but old CD’s and DVD’s hanging nearby work. I often see them on gardens and it keeps the birds away.



  • The idea of fake snakes is very good. It functions in swimming pools too.



  • Place statues of fake birds there. Or even fake plastic snakes. We put them on our patio on our house boat and it stops birds landing there.



  • thanks!



  • Maybe smithing shiney and/or noisey might stop them? We have little ones that love looking at their own reflections. So they hang out on my window sills and around the car mirrors :/ lots of poop
