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.

Just put you a cat up there!

It seems that birds are really attracted to poop on clean cars, so maybe stop cleaning the roof?


Maybe an endless cycle. Clean roof attracts birds, you clean up the poop and the roof is clean for the next round.

Amazing!!!😮 No more bird poop!! I wonder if this snake trick actually works?? Well we shall see if these snakes continue to keep the birds away, or if they will just attract more peckers who will have fun using them as play toys!!! LOL

Well thank you everybody. I check the roof today. Sure enough no more bird poop. Looks like the rubber snake trick is actually working. I'll keep those fellows up there until its time to go south for the winter. If the this is actually working, it will help keep the roof clean until I go to Arizona in December!!!

We use a 44" Peregrine Falcon windsock/kite flying from a 10' pole attached via 4' of fishing line. Darn thing will actually flap its' wings! Seems to work but. Does need a breeze to fly!

Bought it at a kite shop in Ventura, Ca

Twirly gigs

We put the kids twirly gigs on our boat dock to keep the ducks away. I got the ones that had a lot of silver on them to flash when they turned. It works for ducks and birds.

Birds have been getting on the top of my ladder and pooping all over the end of the motorhome as well as the ladder. I had to really scrub to get rid of the seeds in the poop. I am going to try a "whirlybird" that kids play with and put it on the top of the ladder. This works for our mailbox.

Well I'll tell you what. The rubber snake method really works. 3 weeks now since I put them little fellows up there. The birds have never paid another visit to the roof of my RV. Just get a couple of rubber toy snakes from Dollar Tree. I'm so happy this trick was recommended to me here on the forums, it has been a success indeed.
