How to Deter Sparrows

Sparrows nest in spring and summer, choosing buildings, holes and bushes to nest in. There are many humane, effective methods and products for deterring sparrows.

 

Habitat modification

 Block sparrows from entering eaves or other open areas with bird netting.
 Treat ledges and rafters with Transparent Bird Gel to prevent sparrows from landing. Transparent Bird Gel is low profile and will last up to 6 months outdoors.
 Bird Slope can be installed under eaves or other areas to prevent sparrows from nesting or roosting.

 

Remove any food source

 Sparrows may be attracted to your garden, lawn area or song bird feeders as a food source.

 

Scare Tactics

 Visual deterrents with reflective surfaces can be hung in open spaces to scare birds by creating a visual distraction zone
 Hawks are a natural predator of sparrows. Use the Hawk Decoy in gardens, patios, balconies and other open spaces to scare sparrows away.  
 Sound deterrents alert sparrows of nearby danger by broadcasting predator and sparrow distress calls making them want to flee the area.
