How do you keep birds off of your roof?
You can have the roof treated to prevent birds from perching.
But in general they do no harm there.

No, what would support the Windows if the top is down.
Put spikes on the window sill. Just kidding. Try putting food somewhere far away from the window sill. Maybe it will draw the birds away from the sill and towards the food. Th…at might not work. If you are already feeding them, then try stopping.. The spikes are a real solution. There are strips of plastic spikes that, when properly installed, the birds will see and will avoid. How the strips will look on the sills is another problem.
Buy the plastic bird spike, cut to length and put on areas they roost with liquid nails (glue) and a caulking gun.
It is very hard to keep birds off of a fence post. Putting severalbird houses or bird feeders around your yard in different areascould prevent this.
You might like to try putting strong smelling items up there, as animals have very acute senses. If they are your cats then try blasting them with a water hose everytime they …get on your roof,if they are not your cats then use a live trap to capture them and take them to the local animal shelter...also try to eliminate access to the are in which the cats are gaining access to your roof..If you are in a more country type setting then the use of firearms can eliminate the problem much faster.
I have three words for you: Call an Exterminator.
give them a food they love and drag it to where you want it to go.......... try a food they love like seeds
This might mean your roof is not secured in the boot properly. Make sure Its latched in securely.
Unless you remove the method they are using to get into your bird feeder, you are out of luck. The best solution is to get a squirrel proof bird feeder.
try hot peppers. word has it that birds cannot taste it but squirrels can
I have the same problem. It appears to me after observing them for a while, that they are actually feeding. I have poplar trees around my house and in the fall these trees pro…duce little "helicopter things" that spiral to the ground. (Sorry I do not know what they are actually called). They fall into my gutters and the birds get them and peck the end that contains the seed. I assume they are eating this seed.
shoot them or shoo them.
one answer: Good luck with that. Squirrels are amazingly clever and resourceful, and even bird-feeders that claim to be squirrel-proof are not that way for very long. You m…ight be better off trying to distract the squirrels by putting down some sunflower seeds somewhere away from the bird feeder-- squirrels are not inclined to share, so if they have their own food supply, they will often leave the bird feeder alone. another answer: People claim many ways to keep squirrels off your bird pole but none of them seem to work consistently...those pesky critters always come back. One thing I've tried that does work is a product called Squirrel Grease: the squirrels can't get up your bird feeder and its pretty weather resistant.
Okay, this may seem strange but you have to do something SO TERRIFYING that they'll stay off for good, such as: . Shoot one (With a BB gun or airsoft gun) . Capture one (i…n a cage) and put it in the yard "on display" for the other birds . Let a cat or dog loose . Blast loud music in the yard . Hope this helped!
It can be difficult to keep birds off or away from your dock or deck. Birds look for undisturbed perches, safe places to nest, and ample food sources. However, if you plan to …keep nuisance birds off your boat or dock, you will not have to complain later about the time and expense of cleaning away unsanitary and hazardous bird droppings. What should an effective bird control strategy include? Most birds are foragers. If there is any type of food source, they are going to hang around and feast. Clean and remove any food items or waste from fishing lines or nets. Second, any effective bird deterrent must avoid "habituation," i.e., when birds rapidly become accustomed to and are no longer frightened by sights or sounds that were originally frightening. Your efforts to keep bird away should emphasize unpredictability, variety, timing, and persistence. Some people have tried pyrotechnics, such as loud bangers, whistles, flashes of bright lights, or propane cannons. While these methods are readily available, they do have disadvantages. They are loud and may result in complaints in residential areas or can even be illegal to use. They can present a fire hazard and safety hazard to bystanders. Effects are of short duration, and may require storage of a large magazine. Cartridges can be expensive. Finally, and most frustratingly, birds, especially gulls, may habituate to propane cannons in 1-3 days. Visual and auditory bird repellers with frightening effects that change \nand are unpredictable are a great choice to control nuisance birds. One repeller that combines sight and sound effects is the WhirlyBird Repeller. It uses wind to spin and sunlight to reflect patterns of light. When installed in a windy area about 6-8 feet above where the birds are roosting or perching, the constantly changing effects will discourage habituation and keep nuisance birds away from your boat, dock, or deck. There are many different bird deterrents on the market. Be sure to consider your needs and type of bird to repel. Talk to a representative from a bird control company, such as WhirlyBird Repeller, to learn what will work best for you.
im not sure what you can install but put a few moth balls in the gutter and that keeps em away
