Annoying bird poop in pool area.....Solution?
I have been having a bird poop problem around my pool area. The birds are flying over the pool and pooping all over the patio and in the pool. They are eating these dark purple berries from Ivy and thus their poops are dark purple. The other day I went out there and the patio area was covered in this stuff. I hosed it all down and got it clean only to have it bombarded again a few hours later. So quite accidentally I think I hit upon a solution! We were having company over the weekend and for decoration I blew up a very large inflatable alligator and turtle. These two inflatables have quite menacing faces and the wind blows them around the pool randomly. No birds or poop since!!!!!! I hope this continues to work. They also scare my two dogs who stand at the waters edge and bark and growl at them. It's too funny!
