Prevent Birds From Nesting On Your Porch With One Handy Hack
Aluminum foil is a harmless way to deter birds from nesting on your porch, as it shines light and makes sound as the wind blows, creating an uncomfortable environment for them.
Grab some aluminum foil and adhesive tape to get started. Cut the foil into appropriately-sized pieces, and attach them securely to the areas where birds tend to nest or perch.
For hard-to-reach areas, place glue dots or double-sided tape onto the foil. Then, use a long pole to adhere it to rafters and doorways.
Regularly check the foil for damage caused by weather conditions, and replace it as needed to ensure its effectiveness. Also, try placing it in different locations.
