    Magpies

    I have had enough now, we have got 9 yes 9 magpies in our garden everyday.
    They are wrecking everything,they have ripped through the cover on my hammock and broke the rope on my sons trampoline. Any ideas on how to get rid of them?

    get a cat!!
    or one of those cat statue thingies with glowing eyes
    Windchimes sometimes help too

    Salute them and unleash hell with an air rifle, or alternatively recruit the assistance of C32 - He'd make a good scarecrow.

    Don't you get a kiss for seeing nine of the blighters?

    Get a cat cut out from the garden centre and watch them scatter or you could get a bird scarer :w00t:

    There are all sorts of devices out there, the one I quite fancy connects to your hose/tap and when the detector senses movement it squirts a jet of water in the direction of the movement. it is primarily designed for cats but birds it will also work on.

    Wind chime scares them, But also gets on you/your neighbours nerves to!!

    I never knew magpies were so hilarious. I love Drubie's comments about the vicious ones that stalk him cyclingforums.com/t-2…tml

    Thanks guys and gals off to buy some wind chimes and windmills, alot cheaper than a new trampoline and hammock.
    Tried air-rifle but they all fly off as soon as the window or door is open.
