How do I keep these flying rats off the shorestafion canopy and my kids water trampoline.


The black mat is essentially white and I'm about ready to just kick the crap out if them.

Got the same issue with those gulls craping all over my boat cover thats moored at my dock. I already ruined a cover by shooting at them with a slingshot to scare them off. They come right back an hour later. I'm at wits end. I don't want to end up in the slammer over this. I wish they were mice, or chipmunks.

My folks rented a cottage this summer. Shore line of the property had large armour stone with fire pit etc. Nice dock with foam Lilly pad for kids. Found out first night at dusk that they have what I was told are goose getters. Itís essentially the spike style rotating sprinklers hooked up to a motion detecter / timer combo. You set the time you want it armed or Iím sure can have a switch to turn it on/off. Couple ducks had navy seal training and would slip on to the lily pad but no shit on property or dock. . I was impressed, planning to get one for my place to keep drunks out of garage at night

I'm wondering if i can make some some of mechanized scarecrow or dummy mounted to the dock to keep those gulls away. They won't come near when i'm out there...i need them to go shit on my neighbors boat.

I am sure a 12 gauge shotgun would work well.

They had these up in Mackinaw City a couple of years ago and I kind of figured that it was for geese and seagulls. Don't know if they worked or not.
