Can Birds Bother your Baltimore County Home?



Don’t let birds get the best of you.

Birds can be a major nuisance for your home, and due to their numbers they can be overwhelming. Thankfully, whether you simply want to get them away from your home or you need to keep your office clear, you can deter them using humane methods. Are you ready to learn more about how you can keep birds from overrunning your life in Baltimore County? Well, let’s get started.

Keep birds from landing on your home.

Birds love to land on buildings and cause all sorts of trouble, but they can be deterred. You can use bird spikes to keep them from finding a good place to land. You can also use reflective surfaces. These shiny places will scare the birds, urging them to find a different place to hang out. Bird slopes and bird spiders also deter pests from perching on your property and causing damages.

Use sound and mist to deter birds as well.

If you’re not interested in making your home or building look cluttered with bird deterrents, then try using a mister. The mist is made up of a chemical found naturally in concord grapes. Birds dislike it, but they will not be harmed what so ever. Sonic deterrents can also help you rid your property of pesky flyers. They can be mounted discreetly so that you can enjoy a bird-free home without ruining the aesthetic appeal.

Consider the classic approach.

One of the oldest tricks in the bird deterrent book is the scarecrow. Scarecrows do actually work, but birds can often adapt quickly to their presence. What you should do to keep your scarecrow scary is keep it changing. Change its clothes, location, or accessories every few days. You can also add rubber snakes into your garden to protect it, but keep them moving and changing as well.
