how to get rid of birds (swallows) on front porch?


I tried rubber kid toys and tin foil. any other ideas. I'd rather not kill them but I will if I have to. Tired of poop.

He wants to have a house left after he shoots the birds though.

If he is of the mentality to kill the swallows would not shock me if he destroyed his house.

They do make a mess. Lay large piece cardboard for easy poop removal. Or maybe lean a board on that ledge so they can't roost.

We're on our second dang set of babies this year. See the lil phuckers heads pop up, barely, over the ledge.

I quit fighting them and went with it, we adopted.

Try an old shoe. Had some swallows building nest on my outside light on the patio. That wasn't bad, when they started dive bombing anyone who stepped out on the patio, that was bad. Tried everything, even sat with a water hose, & some beer, one night & sprayed them everytime they flew by. That was fun but not practical, so I put up an old shoe where they were roosting, they never came back.

I've either got sparrows or swallows or some shite trying to nest in my gables.

They can't get into my attic and nest anymore, but they still try and nest right there on the edge of the gable vent.

Do they eat mosquitoes? If so, tolerate them. If not you may try putting putty at a slant on the ledge...the 'muckier' the better as they don't want to walk on it.
