Pigeons

I have pigeons in love who want to build their home on my balcony.

One is white, one is grey and purpleish. I think the white one is female but that's just a guess based on nothing.

They bring their friends by to check out the place and I have to keep shooeing them off. If they weren't desease infested filthy vermon who were trying to nest in my storage boxes three feet away from where I watch the sunset I doubt I'd be bothered.

Google isn't super helpful. Well, that is to say, google has a few ideas on how to get rid of them but there isn't a whole lot I can do. Pigeons are tenacious buggers and it seems my only recourse is to buy metal spikey things to discourage them from moving in. So I'm off to try to find metal spikey things in hopes that they don't cost much because, you know, I don't have much money what with being laid off and all.

Any other suggestions? On the weekend I can scare them off but come Monday I fear they'll have a housewarming party and move right in.

Windchimes? Other things that dangle and move in the wind and make noise unexpectedly? Those are the only things I can think of. Good luck finding a workable solution.

Try one of those canned air horns for a couple of bucks at Home Depot or Lowes.

Good ideas! I think I was able to scare them off by yelling and making a commotion. I don't need no vermon babies on my deck.
