Evicting Unwanted Guest


Residential homes offer many protected perches that birds find irresistible for nesting and roosting: eaves, attics, porches, carports, sheds – the list goes on. Most people facing bird problems, whether it be pigeons, sparrows, swallows, woodpeckers, or water fowl such as coots, ducks, or geese have tried a varitey of things to deter the pests.  They've used bird repellents and bird repellent sprays, bird deterents such as bird spikes, sticky bird gels, or balloons and reflective tapes.  Whatever tried, most don't work, or at least don't work for long.  Fly Away BMS is specifically designed to keep birds away from such areas.  Fly Away BMS is long lasting, easy to use, and most importantly - it works!


Start by removing as many attractants as possible (see Understanding Birds). If you find established nests with eggs or young chicks, wait until the eggs hatch and chicks fledge, and then place a Fly Away block or two in the area. Birds will immediately lose interest in that location and stay away. Birds commonly return to the same nesting spot year after year, but with a Fly Away block or two in place, returning birds will quickly decide to find a new place for this year’s next and for every year thereafter.


To deter birds from your garden, place blocks near the plants they favor at roughly 10 feet apart along the perimeter and on stakes throughout the garden. If they’re especially persistent, increase the density of the blocks to as close as 6 feet apart. To protect fruit trees, place several blocks in each tree. Time your deployment of fresh blocks shortly before the fruit ripens, when birds begin to smell and become attracted to the harvest.
