There are a few simple things that you can do to get rid of crows from your yard or house. Crows can be a nuisance and very hard to deter because they are both fearless and smart.
Call Animal Control
When dealing with any sort of pest, you should first call the animal and pest control representatives in your area. Not only will they be able to tell you any local or state laws on handling pests, but many of them are also willing to help you with the process.
A good way to make sure that crows are not attracted to your area is by cleaning your lawn and roof. Make sure there is nothing that they would like to eat and no areas of water on your property. Crows will eat almost anything, so it is important to clean your yard after barbeques or to clean up after your pets.
You can purchase small spikes to install on your roof. Though these are difficult to install, they will make you roof impossible for birds to land on and will eliminate crow on your roof.
Short Term Actions
To get rid of crows for a while, try these easy methods:
- Spray them with water from your hose
- Scare them by shouting and clapping your hands at them
- Throw things at them
Keep in mind that these methods will not eliminate your problem, however, and the crows will return.
The easiest way to get rid of crows for good is by making sure that your garden plants are unreachable to them and your yard is clean.
