Bird spikes

Amazon sells a product called Bird Spikes...a clear plastic designed to hold up to the weather and get the job done...they are resonably priced and well made....and they work!

I have the ultimate solution: no roof ladder. No problem.

I have never become emotional about a bird defecating on the motorhome.I appreciate their presence and enjoy feeding them.

Keeping Birds off the roof

For nearly 10 yrs as a full timer I've flown a Pergrine Falcon stringed atop a 22' Fiberglass pole. Look at Jackite website for everything you need or Amazon for free shipping. Home based in an agricultural area with lots of bird. No poop, fun to watch, great for conversation. Geese even divert when they flyover. Fly it year round, take it down in stormy & high winds above 25. Bird last about two years

birds

I got a "life like" Owl and hung him in the middle of my driveway. The birds keep their distance!

Maybe use galvanized nails or stainless steel screws so that rust is not a problem?

I bought an Owl from Home Depot and tied him up on the top of my ladder. No more bird droppings.

I use "bird spikes". I had some left over from working on airplanes at museums. We put them on prop tips, tail surfaces and antennas, etc. I wouldn't know where to buy them though. I have them on the part of the ladder sticking over the rear of the unit. It has done a pretty good job of protection there, but the part over roof is not protected as yet and they do their job on the roof. Basically, it is about like you have done, only I have many more spikes.

If you solve the problem you don't have climb up the ladder every now and then with a garden hose to spray off the poop.

Emotional? You encourage birds to crap on your motorhome and that's OK. Others don't like it. I'm with the others
