How to get rid of nesting Mynah birds?

Barry Manilows greatest hits should suffice.

No, that'd kill the homeowner, too.

Thanks for the suggestions.

 

I am going to try the toy snakes first.  

 

I think that might attract them though... as when snakes are about in the garden all the birds flock to see it and make a lot of noise attacking it.. which attracts more birds.

 

I would prefer the plastic owl.  Think that might scare them off more.  But have never seen one for sale.

 

Shame I can not rent a hawk or real owl to come and eat the 2 birds and be done with it.

 

 

 

 

Plastic animals will not work. After a while they will simply ignore them or even attack them. If it's your property, shoot or harm them physically.

Spikes worked for us, perhaps you need to arrange them in a way that really makes it impossible for them to build a nest. I also used a Songkran-style water gun, put some irritant in the water.

In stores like Daiso they sell repellants for various animals including birds, I don't have experience with that though.

global sells a sprinkler with a motion detector.  Maybe if you could set up by there.  Might be hard to do though.

Ultrasonic bird repeller. About $70. Called balcony Guard.

 

I think I'd go for a propane cannon.  :whistling:

So why put the snakes there in the first place😋

How would he find out that they don't work for keeping the birds away if he never tried it in the first place?

buy a few rubber or plastic snakes and put them around the patio, birds will stay away

Does not work with pigeons, so why should it work with mynah birds?

Also does not work with pigeons, and they are stupid birds just like mynahs.

It's fine now.  They have gone.  No sign of them for the last few days.   I tried to let them 'finish' but they never can, because as I said in my first post, the nest keeps falling down as quick as they make it as the ledge is too narrow to support it.  I mean all the stuff they pile on there falls off EVERY DAY, even as they are adding more.  They are so dumb.  Not given up in over a year!!!!  

 

It's dangerous for me to clean up their mess... because the nest is about 3 and half meters off the ground and I have to go up and down tall ladders to get to it to clean the wall.  It's not hard to sweep up the fallen sticks... but doing that 2 times a day every single day for a year starts to get irritating and annoying (and it's not just a small amount of sticks like from a dove or sparrow nest).  Plus all the dead dried up birds, feathers and plastic bags keep blowing all over the garden and into the pool.

 

All those saying the toy animals don't work..... they have in this case.  I am going to make sure I keep moving the plastic snakes into a new position once a week for a while just to make sure.  

 

At the moment its so nice not to have the birds waking us up in the morning, pooping all over the patio furniture, and making such a mess with the nesting attempts.
