    Default Bird problem

    Hi ladies,

    So it seems the birds (common sparrow) have taken a liking to the verandahs on my house both at the back and front. They have multiple nests and just make a mess all over my verandah.

    Would anyone know of a good deterrent? I have heard of a 'fake owl' that you can place on the verandah, but you need to keep moving it otherwise the birds catch on that its not real. We have also tried blocking the holes on the roof of the verandah, but they still seem to sneak through.

    Any ideas???

    I have a cat statue with glass eyes, that looks like it's eyes follow you when you move. I got it to get rid of tom cars and birds... There are less birds but could be a coincidence.

    Fighting for control over who's right... Predictive text or me!
