Birds can provide many benefits for those that own a pole building in West Virginia.  Their chirping during a sunny day in April truly sets the mood for beautiful Spring day.  Birds are also effectively remove many insects from our lives, which is something many of us take for granted. 

Although they have their benefits, birds can also be quite a nuisance if they get inside and set up nests in your barn or garage hobby shop in West Virginia.  This article will explain some of the most effective ways to prevent birds from causing havoc in your West Virginia pole buildings. 

Visual Deterrants 

Initially you may have success setting up items like a scarecrow or even a fake plastic owl, as birds may be scared off by these “threats” in their minds.  After a period of time, birds usually adjust to these items and are no longer intimidated by their presence.

Loud Noises

There are specific devices used to make noises loud enough to scare off birds, such as bird bangers and cannons.  These devices can make noises that mimic thunder which deters birds from entering your pole building in West Virginia.  Like scarecrows, birds eventually get used to the sound and these devices lose their effectiveness.   

One way many barn owners prolong the life of these noisemakers is by moving them to different locations.  This is an effective way to confuse birds and prevent them from setting up nests. 


Birds can enter a barn through windows and doors if they are left opened or unattended.  A few items that are perfect for your garage hobby shop in West Virginia are window screens and heavy plastic door strips.  Both of these items block birds from entering your barn while still allowing your barn to be properly ventilated.  This also lets your animals move in and out of the barn without manually opening doors for them.

Bird repellents can come in liquid, granular, and adhesive form.  These items are typically not harmful to birds, but they offer something edible that has a bad taste, which deters birds from coming back to the same spot.  Repellents should be used carefully and moderately inside West Virginia farm buildings so that there are no harmful consequences for the birds.
