You just painted your fence—all 150 feet of it. It looks beautiful, a gleaming testament to your hard work. But now the birds have come. Perching and preening and studying the lay of your backyard. And while they’re busy, they start to drop their loads, streaking your beautiful freshly painted fence with unsightly droppings for the world to see. You get out the garden hose and you attack. The birds flee and you wash and scrub until the streaks are almost gone. But you realize that they will be back. You can’t stand guard with a hose in your hand 24/7. The birds know that. And you know it. So being smarter than the birds, you arm yourself with the latest bird proofing devices man in his infinite wisdom has developed.

Flocks of angry birds have been dive bombing residents of Noe Valley, an otherwise peaceful neighborhood in the central part of San Francisco.

One resident who was attacked said the sparrows kept coming—in 24th between Castro and Diamond and then on 23rd and Diamond. A recent twitter reported birds attacking people just past Barney's on 24th between Diamond and Castro.

Time to get some serious non-lethal bird control—time for Stainless Steel Bird Spikes.Read More
