Re: Boathouse Bird Solution

OK, here is a FREE solution to birds in your boathouse. Most birds that roost in your boathouse are pigeons or collared doves (invasive species). Here is the way to deal with them: things you need, a very bright flashlight and a hose at the boathouse, you need to keep a keen watch in the evening to see the bids go to roost. Give them a little while to settle down, after dark is best. Go quietly and stealthily to the boathouse with flashlight in hand, quietly pick up the hose (should be already turned on). Locate the birds and flash them with the light, shine it on the birds and all around and at the same time scoot them with the hose and don't stoop till they have all gone to someone else's boathouse. They will never come back. This method does not cost anything it is free and also FUN.
