Starlings nest in every nook possible in my roof and its in a area we cannot get to or we'd remove them. I started trying to shoot them with bird shot and got a couple but I'd have to sit there for a month to get rid of them all and I am not fond of shooting the gun since we have so many of our own animals around, kids, bikers, runners and neighbors, ect. I will shoot it when I have a easy target away from everything but the birds have to land in 'just' the right spot and I have to sit and wait for hours.
They drive me crazy and crap all over my patio, deck, grill, roof, herb garden, ect. I cannot even enjoy my patio or herb garden cause its covered in crap!
and they skwack a horrible sound all day long so I cannot open my windows and they come back every single year and more and more each year, what was originally one nest has turned into so many and in all the outbuildings and barns now too. I dont put out any bird seed and we do have cats, I am about to throw the cats on the roof ;-)
Any suggestions, I am ready to just hire someone to get on the roof and
remove them and replace all the roof vents and fix all the spots they are getting in but I am a avid DYIer and would like to figure this out myself if I can. The part they are nesting in is too steep and high part of the roof for us to get to with the tallest ladder, we already rented one and tried.
