Deterring Birds from your Dayton Home

If you have attempted to grow a vegetable or flower garden in your Dayton yard, or if you have an attic that has an opening, you have probably had a few run-ins with birds. This is because birds are attracted to the food present in your garden and are always looking for a new place to nest. However, there are ways to deter these birds from harming your Dayton property.

  1. Physical Deterrent- If you are worried about birds nesting in your attic, consider installing bird spikes. While not causing direct harm to the animals, bird spikes will prevent birds from being able to land and nest in your home. You can also use a bird net to cover your garden and the openings in your attic.
  2. Sound Deterrent- Playing the sounds of different predators and fellow birds can also help to deter the animals from your home. However, birds will become accustomed to sounds played constantly, so be sure to change the sounds often.
  3. Visual Deterrent- Using a visual deterrent to scare birds away from your Dayton home is useful as well, but needs to be changed regularly. If you have an object that never moves, the birds will realize it can’t hurt them. Instead, use bird foil or anything with a reflection to scare the birds away.
  4. Taste Deterrent-If you are having a major problem with birds eating your garden, consider using a “food-grade biodegradable spray.” This is a great way to deter the birds without causing them, or your garden, any harm.
