Joe; Try them on your MH and let us know how it works. You may be able to sell the cats instead of giving them away! LOL

I have found the rubber snake method to be very effective. Almost 2 months now and no signs of birds anywhere. I go up there and move the snakes to a different position each week so it tricks the birds into thinking their alive!!!!😱

Setting up in our winter home. We camp under large ficus trees that have lots of doves. Last year there were seven (7) nests above the coach. Have half a dozen snakes to lay on the roof and hang in the trees.

Hope the doves recognize the rubber menace and stay away. Also hope the little falcon that chases the doves does not like snake (especially rubber) as an optional meal!

Will let you know how my experiment turns out.

Sure glad it works for you!

Joe: How much you paying, how many bags of cat food are included and are all their shots up to date?

Just had the coach washed and waxed. Tomorrow the "snakes" go up to stop the dam* birds from crapping on the roof.
