Anyone who owns a car has dealt with a bird or two trying to turn their vehicle white. Whether parked in
a parking lot, mall, or grocery store, bird droppings can cause serious damage to the paint of cars.
Those living near rivers, lakes, and the beach should make sure they have bird control measures in place
for the birds to stay off their vehicles.
Darn birds! It's a mystery as to why these pesky birds keep pooping on the cars that we've just washed!
To stop them, we have to put up a sign or scare them away somehow.
How to keep birds from pooping on your
car: the basics
One way to prevent bird poop from ending up on your car is to drive at least three feet away from any

If you are looking for a way to keep birds from pooping on your car, the best solution is to cover it
with a high-quality bird deterrent. There are many products available on the market and you can get them

Birds fly away from reflections of the sun. If you have birds invading your garden or backyard, consider
using De-Bird Discs to deter them from your property. These disc-shaped discs made out of plastic foil
are placed on windows and other reflective surfaces to scare birds away from the area and into an area
where they cannot damage property.
Now, take a number of CDs and arrange them into a pyramid-shaped structure with the reflective sides
facing out. The sunlight will reflect off these surfaces, making your car easy to spot. Arrange some
clothes or cloth around a magnet and then glue it to the bottom of the pyramid. As you exit your car,
place this pyramid on top of your car to make sure that every bird sees them from miles away.

How to keep birds away from your car
Birds can be very territorial and they will try to defend their territory from others. This is
especially true during the mating season. If they see themselves reflected in your car's side-view
mirror, they will become aggressive toward the intruder. They may perch on a mirror waiting for you to
reappear or even fly toward you. By blurring or blocking the reflection, they are less likely to react
aggressively toward you. To keep the birds off your car, cover your car mirrors with something that
makes it hard to sit or perch.
