This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Birds are beautiful, majestic creatures, and watching them flitter about your backyard can be incredibly soothing — until you go outside and see the mess they left behind, that is. These repellents keep uninvited guests from sticking around by reflecting light, moving erratically, or otherwise making life uncomfortable for them. As an added bonus, they're relatively inexpensive and easy to set up. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 15, 2018:

Considered ultrasonic options, but upon deeper inspection, found that many operate at frequencies that birds can't even detect, and so they have little effect. Among the selections that made the cut, a preference was shown for those that created the most distraction.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
