Many home owners and businesses have problems with birds, and wish to know how to prevent them from using their buildings nad property as habitat. Any wild bird will live in an area if that area provides suitable food and shelter. Oftentimes, our buildings do offer such requirements. Garbage can also serve as an attractant. Once an animal has established a behavior of visiting your property for these food sources, it can be hard to make them break the habit.
There is no good product on the market that really works for bird prevention. If you have a bird problem that you need to get rid of, the best bet is to actually catch the animals in a live trap, and physically remove them from the area. This is not usually a good field for amateurs, so if you need such services, it might be best to call a professional from the linked list of nationwide pros.
Effective bird prevention relies upon methods meant to simply prevent birds from roosting in the affected areas - basically, physical barriers. Some examples of the barriers used to keep out birds include large and elaborate netting systems that prevent birds from flying to, and landing on, affected areas. Other good physical deterrents include needle strips, which are tracks covered with sharp spikes that will prevent birds from landing on the surfaces covered with such a product. Shock tracks are also available, and they deliver an electrical jolt when the bird attempts to land on the roosting surface. These products and methods will work, but it's not the kind of thing that an amateur can install. Oftentimes it takes a professional company to do the job correctly.
