Steps - not talking about taste. The paste/grease stuff in the tube is spread out where they want to land/roost. It is not for eating - it sticks to their feet. And they don't like it. From memory it had an additional additive that gave them itchy feet - hence the 'Hot Foot'. Not sure what they had in it but have a feeling it was some chillie base. I have used it. Works OK - problem is it collects dust etc and looses some effect over time and then you have a bit of a mess to clean. But for short term, more specific areas, def worth a shot. Not sure if still available or not. Pest control guys used to use it.

Dunno no about "spice" chilli" stuff.
 We bread parrots, kakariki crimsons Burke, turqs  few other breeds for many yrs.
 They do not have the taste receptor for hot stuff.
 As far as to say they where so sort after we used to use the seeds of capsicum and chili as rewards when training them.

 The cores (hot seeds) out of capsicum where a regular part of their veggie diet which was a good 60/70% of their overall protein/ fruit seed diets.

That won't work for swallows. They have to eat it. Usually dosed into grains etc.

Yes - that is sort of what the Hot Foot stuff is - with a bit of spice thrown in. They don't like tacky feet.

Just enjoy the gift of beautiful swallows in your shed. Not everyone is so privileged . They will nest and soon  be gone again .

I did notice in bunnings some of those wire spikes that come in strips.
Often seen on commercial buildings.

demolish the shed Wink
Hmm. Can see large piles of rubble looming.
But yes - noise things are very limited. Birds don't mind noise - they get used to it. Airports have problems with birds. And people don't like living by airports ... because of the noise. They don't mind roosting in noisy factories etc. In fact they are very adaptable. It takes them a few days to work out the latest ruse.
Physically deterring them generally works tho - make it uncomfortable for them and they will find your neighbors shed more attractive.

A $8 red shed trap laid over that part of the boat, or whatever.

Was down at a factory couple days ago, they had a movement operated distress sound... more bloody annoying than the birds.
And the guys recon the birds get used to it.
There are stickers of birds of prey that can be put  on windows that are prone to bird strike (wood pigeons, tui, blackbirds etc)
 Ultra sonic gadgets, know a few ppl who have had them for mice stuff like that. mess up some of their dogs , thats it.

Then there is the air rifle...good on pigeons, trouble is as soon as the flock in the tree reduces another pair move in to nest/ roost.
 Now pigeons, there is a legit complaint.. sound like cats in high heels on the roof, mess up the roof and decks by perching on gutters.
 What is the easiest way to chop down and kill a large mature phenex palm?

If extend the chop down logic as a soln... demolish the shed Wink

there's those "birds of prey" decoys, that may work. People put them on their moored boats etc to keep gulls from ****ting all over their yacht/launch. An Owl perched very near by in the shed will have them nesting elsewhere in no time. Personally, I like my shed resident swallows.....but yeah, do make a mess.
