Wild Turkey problem

Does anyone have any solutions for keeping turkeys off the roof of the trailer? I am in a park that has alot of wildlife incl. a flock of wild turkeys. I know they sleep in the trees at night but I just heard something running across the roof of the trailer and sounded likes nails scraping the side of the trailer, I got up to look outside to see what the ###LL was going on and the flock was behind the trailer........Dont want any damage done to the roof.

Try some rubber snakes. I know they work for smaller birds.

Try laying a couple of rubber snakes on the roof...2 to 3 feet long.

the rubber snakes should do the trick. If they don't tie a piece bright colored fabric on your TV antennae, so it will move in the breeze.

Clear fishing line stretched tight around anything you can tie to will keep birds off as will Mylar ribbon lots of flash.

Maybe it was Santa and his reindeer doing touch and goes getting ready for the big night in a couple of months

Sorry just had to say that : laugh:

Watch what kind of rubber or plastic you lay on the roof. Some of tem contain an oil and it will react with the roof....sort of melt.
