Repelling Flocks of Birds in Your Yard
Birds in your yard or garden are pretty to look at, but not when you have flocks of them invading your yard. Birds are notorious for causing damage to crops, plants and even buildings. Some species of birds are known to be territorial and aggressive by nature, and once in your yard, they can be disruptive with the noise they create and the unsanitary conditions they leave behind. Some birds can present a health risk to humans and pets that inhabit the same living space. Bird droppings, debris, and feathers all pose a risk, as they can be full of diseased organisms that can make humans sick. Birds often carry parasites that could potentially be transferred to your pets and brought into your home.
Having an abundance of birds in your yard can cause negative effects for your pets. Bird droppings are not commonly harmful, but there is always a chance that one bird may be carrying a disease that could potentially affect a flock of birds and your pets. Some homeowners in mountainous regions face the particularly awful problem of predator birds, such as eagles and hawks, which have been known to swoop down and pick up cats and small dogs. This is a truly awful experience to go through and one that requires a homeowner’s immediate attention.
Birds can be a wonderful addition to a garden, as they usually eat insects and other unwanted creatures. However, they also love to eat seeds that have just been planted, and they can destroy fruits and leaves in surrounding trees. Once settled, birds may quickly decide that your yard is the best place to live.
In urban areas, and even some suburban areas, the old scarecrow just isn’t going to do the trick. Bird control can be a tricky business, and for years, people have tried everything they can think of to rid their yards of these pests. Birds can be stubborn and people have been known to spend a lot of time and money trying any number of different ideas. Because birds can fly, many of the typical methods for ridding your yard of critters do not work.
Fencing and physical barriers will successfully keep birds from eating and destroying your garden, however it does not prevent them from nesting in your yard. Likewise, granular and liquid deterrents will only keep birds a safe distance from the applied area. This does not necessarily keep them out of your yard completely.
