How to Be Freed from Crows in your Yard

Crows are not evil, and they are not purposely trying to torment you. They are just being crows, trying to live their lives and feed their families. Actual property destruction is one thing that might require action. Once crows have decided to come to your yard, it might be hard to convince them to leave. Some people scare crows away to make them leave, while others kill them to quickly get rid of the problem. Whatever option you choose, you must make sure that you are obeying the law and doing something that actually works.

There are many other ways to get rid of crows, here are some method which we suggest you to follow for good result rather than erecting a scare crow alone.

  • String old CDs together: Get some old CDs and string them together. Place the string of CDs near the affected site, making sure that the CDs reflect sunlight. Crows hate the reflection that the CDs give off, and they should go away.

  • Keep your surroundings clean: Crows may flock around your home because your surroundings aren’t clean, and you have poor garbage disposal practices. The birds can find plenty of food in these surroundings, so they stay and encourage other birds to follow them. Keeping your surroundings clean may help reduce the crows in your area by depriving them of food.
  • Make some noise: Oftentimes, loud noises are enough to get rid of crows. Just bang your pots and pans whenever the crows are starting to flock in your yard. You can also use firecrackers to really send a hostile message to them. Do this consistently every day, so the birds will not return to that place again.
  • Set up a bird-repel system: Place a bird repel system near the area where crows flock, and it should scare most of the birds away. Most bird repel systems are audio devices that produce sounds that keep crows away. Some of these devices produce loud shrieking sounds that fool crows into thinking that there are predatory birds around.
  • Blast them with a water gun: Use a water gun instead of a real one if you want to shoot the birds without hurting them. Large water guns are best for this purpose because they can hit a lot of birds with one squirt.
  • Keep a dog: Some dogs instinctively chase after other animals like crows. You may build a dog house near the area where crows flock, so the dog can always scare the birds away.
  • Use an owl decoy: Owl decoys are stuffed figures of owls that scare crows and other birds away. Place an owl decoy near the site where crows flock, and leave it there for a day or two.
