Default Crow Problem

I got crows and other birds coming into my backyard. They're pooping all over the place and its driving me crazy to get out the pressure cleaner everyday. How can I make them stop coming?

You can get fake owls and put them out to keep the starlings out of your yard. I think there are even some with motion sensors built in that will make noise. The only drawback to the owls is that sometimes the starlings get smart and figure out that owls aren't out in the daytime!

Some towns will set off harmless but noisy charges for you to scare them off as they're considered a health hazard.

Lol I would but they would cry about it for months.

Any other tips I really need to get rid of these things. I really want to get a gun and shoot them but if I miss, than I'm gonna shoot the other houses around here. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

The problems getting worse cuz theyre starting to try and attack me. I cant go outside without a tennis racket or ill get dive bombed by a crow. UGHHHH i hate them sooo much.

You should call your town's city manager and ask who you need to speak to about this problem. His secretary can probably give you the right information. Another place to call is the wildlife resources agency.

ROFLOL!!!

Yes, I'd do what Renee said. That is positively getting out of hand....sounds like the balance of nature is screwed up a little in that area. I'd probably shoot them too. Those owls sound great, but the birds will get habituated to them and come right back. It would be nice to have a trained, pet hawk. That would fix 'em.

Before you start shooting you'd better check to see if there are any laws against discharging firearms where you are! Not to mention tell your neighbors what you're doing.

We have more birds hanging around in our neighborhood than other years. I sit outside watching and I've told my husband I swear that some of them tease Princess! So reading your post just convinces me more that I'm right. The ones that tease are crows. The bird sits on the fence and hollars to get Princess' attention then swoops down just above Princess then up to a tree just out of Princess' reach. Princess goes nuts, jumping at the tree and barking. I dont think my husband believes me when I tell him a bird is picking on Princess!

We had some starlings that were doing that with our dogs earlier - until Bimmer leapt up and caught one! They leave the dogs alone now, lol!
