How to Deter Robins

Though Robins migrate north for summer and south for winter, they can commonly be found in suburban and agricultural settings in America year round. Most homeowners encounter problems with Robbins at bird feeders, in yards and backyard gardens. Robins also like to nest in dense shrubs and trees. Other times, Robins are attracted to windows pecking at what they perceive is another bird.

 

Important: Robins are protected under the Federal Migratory Bird Act which states that once an egg is laid in a nest, the nest is to remain intact until the hatchlings have left. Avoid hefty fines, call Bird-B-Gone at 1-800-392-6915 for advice or an installer in your area.

♦  Net off fruits or vegetables to completely block the birds from the area
♦  For windows, try the window alert or bird alert to let the birds know there is indeed a surface in front of them.
♦  At bird feeders, if they are overwhelming the other birds, try a specie specific bird feeder. If they are eating up seeds that have dropped to the yard, try a bird   feeder with a wider catch tray.
