How to Keep Birds Out of Awnings

Bird Control for Awnings

It can be difficult keeping birds out of awnings. Awnings and other covered spaces provide ample protection from weather and predators. Birds seek covered areas such as awnings to take refuge to build their nests. For this reason, it is important to install effective bird deterrents for awnings. 

Bird Control Products for Awnings:

The most effective way to stop birds from nesting under awnings is to install exclusionary bird control products such as bird netting. If birds are not nesting, alternative bird deterrent products can be used to keep birds out of awnings. 

Note: It is important to clean away nesting materials and droppings  thoroughly before installation of products.
