ARGHH!!!!!!!!!! Magpies...

Can anyone help?
For the past week I've had a problem with magpies pecking out areas of my lawn and it now looks terrible. My lawn was beautiful as i look after it well, I've never had this problem before, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would of put money on somebody coming out with that :thinking:

Stand on one leg, touch your nose with your left hand whilst pointing at each bird and signing the national anthem backwards

Works everytime

one for sorrow
two for joy
three for a girl
four for a boy
five for silver
six for gold
seven for a secret never to be told

# It may be possible to deter them by playing a tape of a crow or rook distress call. get the tape recorder out of course they might dance but it will distract them from pulling grass LOL

ahhh.. but was it naked? :w00t:

As long as there is more than 1 magpie then let them be.........

1 magpie is bad luck supposedly...and this has been true for me....the other week on the way to work....I was driving along and passed 1 single magpie at the side of the road....5 mins later I was in a minor bump with another car.... :-(

this week, I passed 6 magpies.......and last night, I nailed a petite blonde milf with FF's :-D

Karma.....you gotta love and believe in it really :-D

i've heard statues of owls deter pigeons ...maybe magpies don't like them either.

The Magpies are almost certainly after chafer grubs and leather jackets in your once lovely lawn.
If they've already been at it for a week then the damage is done. I'm afraid. You could try an insecticide to kill off the rest of the grubs and CD's dangling from green sticks but it's a bit late. You will have to save your lovely lawn by looking after it well again, probably need some re-seeding, once the magpies have moved on. As a very keen gardener, except for my lawn, you have my sympathy.

Buy a cat...

And when that starts pooing in your garden, buy a dog. :thumbsup:

Plant marigolds. Magpies are averse to strong odours. Scatter moth balls … Plant marigolds. Magpies are averse to strong odours. Scatter moth balls around your garden.Ask your butcher for scraps and lace the meat with hot peppers or pepper spray. You may wish to do this only when you can keep an eye on the bait to ensure no other animals or small children come in contact with it.



Are you saying i should get a load of brightly dressed old people with flatulence and scatter them around the garden :w00t:
