How do I get rid of birds in my downspout?
Is your home is so nice that a Mama bird has decided to build her nest in your downspout? If so, here is what to do about it:
If they're already established just leave them alone and let Mother Nature run its course; however, next spring you can clean away the old nest and clean the downspout, then before they start their nest tie a cord to the soffit and let it down to hang around where the nest was. Birds are very protective of their nests and do not like anything hanging or swinging over their heads so they will find a better place to nest.
