Birds are beautiful creatures to observe from afar as they fly around the house or settling down together in a group chirping away. However, they can be a pest to deal with when they get comfortable in one of your gutters, and they are stubborn to get rid of. If you want to avoid clogs or potential water damage to your gutters, try these methods to keep birds away from your gutters.
You can find these sprays at your local home depot, and they are very easy to use. Simply spray around the gutters. This repellent creates an unpleasant smell to birds that will keep them away from the surface. The only problem is that the spray does not last for long, so if you have persistent birds, you will need to continue spraying persistently.
It may seem pointless or ineffective, but high-frequency and predator noises can be an absolute hit in scaring birds away. Birds are very cautious about sounding, and the last thing they need is being surrounded by unwanted noise that will make them and their little hatchlings be on a constant lookout for predators. Sound technology will need a handy person for installations as holes will be needed for wiring (unless you go Bluetooth, which can be more pricey)
