    Stupid Birds....

    Keep building nests under my porch pillars and under the eves of my house!!! Ive tried a few way to keep them away! One being little pieces of wood that I put a few long nail spikes through the bottom and screwed into the top pillars much like you see in strip malls/shopping plaza's. I recently bought a fake Hawk and move it every few days. Dang things still build nests!! Anyone have any sure-way ideas to keep these pesky poopers off the specific areas I dont want them in. Shooting would be my first option but my wife wont take kind to that.. haha.

    My dad built caps for the inside of the posts that tapered to a peak(think sloped pieces of wood) that kept the birds from being able to get the nesting material to stay put.

    That was going to be my suggestion as well. Don't give them a flat surface to build the nest.

    As others have said, tapered blocks work the best.

    I've heard that if you were to lay a rubber snake up there - they would avoid the area.

    I'd agree with the use of tapered blocks. The spike strips work, but don't look as pretty. At my place I have a pair of Eastern Phoebes who build nests on my porches. They follow me on the 2720 and eat the bugs while I'm mowing, so I leave them be. I like flycatchers. The poop is a maintenance issue, though.
