Modify Their Habitats

The easiest way to keep birds out of your home is by modifying their habitats. Birds are creatures of habit and will return to the same place day after day if they can successfully hunt for food there.

If you make it difficult for them, they’ll likely move on in search of easier prey elsewhere.

Keep trees trimmed so that branches with nests are not easily accessible from certain areas around your house or yard.

Also, keep your pet’s food inside so that birds won’t have a reason to stay in your yard.

Put Fishing Wire Over the Pool

If birds tend to land near your swimming pool, you may want to consider putting fishing wire over the top of it. The birds will not be able to land on your pool, which means they won’t get in the pool and make a mess of things either.

This material will make it difficult for any bird, big or small, to land on an area where you don’t want them landing.

Put the line about three feet off the ground around both sides of your pool deck or porch. You should also put a little extra up in trees that have nests if possible, as well as those areas where you know birds like to hang out near windows.

Utilize Aluminum Foils

Birds do not like the feeling of aluminum foil under their beaks or feet, so they will avoid it.

You can purchase rolls of aluminum foil at most big box stores and use them to cover your windowsills or other places where you know birds like to sit. It is a simple fix that can have immediate results if done properly.

Place strips of the material under your garden’s surfaces, around plants, trees, and other places that they usually land on. The good news about this method is the fact that it is a very cheap method and it could work effectively.

Apply Baking Soda to Your Patio and Window Sills

Birds are not fond of the taste or smell of baking soda, so they will avoid it just like aluminum foil.

You can sprinkle a light layer of baking soda on your patio and window sills to keep them away from these areas while also making sure that you do not create any health hazards for yourself in the process.

This method works well because birds won’t fly through this material. It is sticky enough to cover large surfaces without blowing around too easily either, which makes it effective at keeping birds out when applied properly.

Predator Decoys or Statues

Birds will flee from predators, so if you find an area where they like to land frequently, place a decoy that looks like the predator.

For example, birds are afraid of owls and hawks, which is why these animals make great decoys for getting rid of them.

You can also simply purchase predator statues or sculptures at your local craft store. Place them around your home where you know there have been bird activity previously to scare off those pesky creatures before they have time to cause problems in the future as well!
