How to Keep Birds from Building Nests in Gutters

We are often asked the question, “how do we keep birds from building nests in our gutters.”  Pest birds like Indian Mynas and Starlings will hop into the floor of your roof guttering, then they squeeze their way under small gaps under your bottom row of tiles and metal sheeting. These pest birds will build their nest in the eaves space because this area acts as a cave-like shelter. Pest birds will rarely build their nest actually in the gutter itself because that is a flood zone with no overhead cover.
We have removed hundreds of pest birds from residential and commercial roofs.

Indian Mynas in particular are destroying Australia’s native birds. This is a problem that is only getting worse, pest bird species are dramatically increasing in numbers as native birds gradually disappear from metropolitan areas.
