I have problems with birds pooing on my new patio. I have a TV aerial on the gable end of my house and birds sit on the aerial and poo on my nice new patio.

Anyone know a away of stopping the birds from sitting on the aerial? Moving the aerial is not an option as the reception will only suffer.

Thanks

Mack

to keep birds from landing on and then messing on buildings they cover buildings in a netting that the birds cant land on.

maybe a netting of sorts could be the answer for your aerial??

i'm a dog girl, maybe one of the bird ppl here could fill in my blanks for you.

as for cleaning it off your patio without ruining your plants i use hot water with washing up liquid in, when im cleaning up piddle puddles as i have kids i sometimes use a cap of dettol too. i use a hard broom for scrubbing the path with.

sorry but I don`t think thats a good idea.
I used to have it on my house, but so many of the birds got stuck and died.
We saved three,but we couldn`t get the rest, we were to late.

Just place a plastic owl in the area.
The birds will avoid it.
If it is crows though, they are smart and unless you move the owl every few weeks, they soon learn it is not real.
