They use them in the orchards around here and you can here them for miles.
We used the cannon's around our rice fields after planting. Our general consensus was that all they accomplished was to let the blackbirds know which fields had been planted, kind of like a dinner bell!

I don't have problems with holes. The roof was resealed les than a year ago. And the bugs and birds don't seem interested in the sewer vents. Probably cause there's no air to breath down there. And strange enough they stay away from AC and fridge vents. We have had a few rain storms recently. I think the birds like to play in the water on the roof whenever it rains and leave their doo doo. After all this is quite literally a scorched and over baked desert this time of year. So birds are drawn to water like dogs are drawn to human food. LOL!!

Buy or make a couple of these, banana hooks, and then hang a an old CD from fishing wire on it at both ends of the coach. The reflection of the moving CD scares them. Just don't forget to take them off when you leave.

Flypaper strips. They hate it, yet won't stick enough to entrap them.

I think I am going try the rubber snake option. Seems like a lot of you have had good success with this method. So I will report back.

I have decided this is unacceptable, something has to be done to make these pests disappear. The birds have got to go. Anyone here had a problem with birds on the roof?? What did you do to end the problem? ?? These pests have got to go. So feedback please.

I've never had a bird poop problem...however I park my coach "out in the open" with nothing but sky above...(no trees or branches... no overhead wires...no roof)
Apparently birds have a hard time flying, pooping and hitting their target all at the same time.

That's just it! People who park their rv's under trees or on grass pay a hefty price. LOL To be honest I have never had this problem before either. I think the problem is unique to the location where my rv is currently located. I bought a hand pressure pump (its like a portable 2 gallon car wash) So I can give the rv a wash down every time it needs it. Seems tw work quite well.

We park under very large ficus trees. Had to leave the coach for a while and returned to find 7 dove nests above the coach. Called the coach cleaners and they took care of the mess.

Doves and pigeons are the worst because they have no mercy and it is all out warfare with those pooping monsters.
