We have pigeons. They can be annoying when they gather. Especially on my balcony railing.
I’ve tried everything. Shooing them off the balcony. Spritzing them with water. And yet the continue to land on my railing and make a mess. Now they come onto the balcony and walk around leaving a mess there as well. So the battle has begun in earnest.
Repellent ribbons, they worked well until rain caused the ribbons to shrivel up and lose their shine.
Repellent device #1, they did keep the pigeons away, but they made too much noise when it swung against the glass panel
Spinners, they worked fine until mother nature unleashed strong winds and spun my spinners from their pole into the ground below. Later I found remnants of my spinners.
Repellent device #2, same strong winds took these away as well.
Spikes, I took a gamble and bought these spikes. After losing the spinners, I put one strip up and watch a pigeon land on my railing, take a few steps and encountered my spikes and flew away. Victory, but now I have to wait to see what mother nature will do to these spikes before I put the rest down.
Do you have troublesome pests?
