My new building we put up in Pea Palace now seems to be home to unwanted starlings and sparrows. The building was built with one side of the existing corn crib as one sidewall of this 24x30 building. I used a tarp to close this wall off,instead or ripping the old boards off and buying plywood. I try to get home from work an hour before dark to get feeding and watering done.Everynight so far,once I enter the building there seems to be about 20 sparrows and 10 starlings flying around inside.My individual pens uses 2x4 welded wire above the 4x8 plywood. This wire extends to the ceiling-roof rafters and these pests do have to slow down,but can fly from pen to pen before I can get a gate open to shoo them out.Sometimes if it's still daylite outside they will quickly exit from the walk in door that I have to open to get inside this building. What really pullled my trigger was 3 nights ago I took a new loaf of bread out to feed the peas inside this building.I only fed 1/2 the loaf and last night I noticed what looked like flour on the floor.the da-n starlings had tore the plastic bread bag to shreds,leaving nothing but flour-like crumbs behind. These birds craps in the water bowls for my peas. They eat the feed in the feedbowls,and now have taken up permanent residence here.There used to be a poison called Rid-a-bird,,my old boss bought these "wicks" that was perches and we then soaked the wicks with poison.Once the birds sat on these wick perches,they were dead within a day. I looked for these but it seems they're no longer made anymore. Since the alleyway inside this building is secure and no peas can get out of their individual pens,I can put poison in that area for the starlings and sparrows to eat,and the peas will be safe.I'm not concerned about "humane" ways to scare them away,,the only sure way to rid a pest that knows where a steady supply of feed is during the winter,is kill them,,and I have no qualms about lessening the population of starlings and sparrows. Aside from grinding up alka seltzer and whole soybeans,,is there any sure fire home brew recipes you know of that will drop these pests with very little feeding,or very little time after they eat it? I could use a bb gun but I'm sure the new metal would get dents in it,and possible ricochet bb's could injury Thang.Ideas? And they don't have to be humane.
