Talkback: Deterring pigeons

Posted: 15/07/2013 at 16:57

i thought feeding the pigeons would encourage more to come, but i seeem to have just the same three everyday (considering i'm in the inner city, i don't think this is two bad.) i've also got a resident magpie pair, so between them they seem to keep all the other big birds away but still leave room and food for the little ones.

mine seem to prefer bits of kibble dog food to corn, and like mccavity says, i think they're too lazy to bother looking for anything else one they're full up on easy pickings.

Petrol Strimmers

Posted: 14/07/2013 at 16:57

having tried other strimmers (electric and petrol) i've now got a sthil fs 40, never gives me a moments bother. easy to use and at 4.4kg's it's not too heavy to tote around and you can always use a shoulder harness with it for comfort if you have a big space to clear.

was it worth spending £200 on?, yeah, worth every penny (and if i do want to sell it on in the future, it's a brand that holds it's value well.)

Feline Invaders.....AKA Cats

Posted: 10/07/2013 at 14:05

if you want cats to stay out of your garden then you have two choices, either use 45 degree angle on the top of your fencing to stop them getting in and out that way or make your garden unpleasant by using a super soaker water pistol aimed at the body of the cat (not the head!) you have to make sure the cats can't see you when you 'shoot' them, otherwise they learn that the garden is only out of bounds while you're visible. the shot of water has to be akin to an 'act of god' to be really effective.

safe, cheap and unlikely to upset your neighbours and fellow forum members. as for the petition... you're wasting your time, and dog wardens? birmingham has one for the whole city, so good luck getting central govt to cough up for 'cat wardens'.
