    2 birds nests in a23-24 in a month :(

    I was wondering what you guys use aside from foam to keep the birds
    from making a nest in the tail cone of your planes I removed one nest
    the size of a life preserver only to have another appear 3 weeks
    later . Worse yet I found some blue eggs in it.( I think they were
    starling eggs) I am thinking of having my girlfriend stich some kind of
    canvass cover to close off the tail cone during the nesting season./Any
    input /advice appreciated regrads Chas

    2 birds nests in a23-24 in a month :(

    I made a tailcone cover out of rip stop nylon. Made a template from
    newpaper then out of the nylon. Goes over tailcone and first 1 ft of
    elevator. Fastens with Velcro along back edge. Now that I'm in the hangar
    we don't need it but outside, we had the same problem ! Use it when I travel
    now.

    I just ordered the tailcone boot; been meaning to for a while now. Red
    only, embroidered N-number, fifty bucks plus five bucks shipping, roughly a
    week delivery.

    Chas,

    Planecover.com has a tailcone boot that fits great and keeps the tailcone
    closed to birds.

    http://www.planecover.com/redirects/page_2.htm#
    <http://www.planecover.com/redirects/page_2.htm> and click on "Tailcone
    Boot."

    2 birds nests in a23-24 in a month :(

    Hi all,

    I've never tried it myself, but I have heard over the
    years of putting moth balls in the cowl. I would think
    tethering a cloth sack full to the inside of the cowl
    plugs to insure removal before flight might work. If I
    ever have this problem I will try it. A friend of mine
    put them around in his hangar, and he said they keep
    the birds away. If anyone has any expirience with
    this, let us all know.

    2 birds nests in a23-24 in a month :(

    I bought the planecover.com tail cover last year after being charged
    $300 to remove bird nests that I couldn't see - too far inside the
    tail.

    Best money I've spent so far.

    2 birds nests in a23-24 in a month :(

    Never even thought to look that way (had owned 45L for only a few
    months at that time).

    I ALWAYS look up the tail when I check the elevator & lock nut, but
    never noticed the nests until I saw a bird fly out as I was doing
    the preflight.

    I then fiddled around with a coat hanger & found pieces of a nest -
    that's when I had it opened up & inspected.

    2 birds nests in a23-24 in a month :(

    Be VERY careful of any aroma producing substance. Some aromas
    combine with humidity/condensation to create corrosive compounds.
    Some sealants, for example, will emit an aroma under the right
    condidtions that can combine to form acetic acid (vinegar). This is
    highly corrosive to aluminum. I don't know what the active
    ingredients in the mothball aroma, but until I'm sure it is NOT
    corrosive, I'll use barriers to keep out the birds.

    2 birds nests in a23-24 in a month :(

    I wasn't going to jump into this discussion but my solution seems to work
    since we had to pull out a nest (starlings).
    Now don't laugh (everyone does, even my partners) 'cause it works. I place a
    colorful rubber snake through the gap above the stab. I have no idea if the
    color, size, shape, or type of snake makes any difference. (Can they even
    tell is it looks like a coral snake???) All I know is we have had no nests
    for 3 years since we started. (Sure scares linemen too! Guy in Virginia
    wouldn't fuel my plane until I removed it.)

    I was wondering what you guys use aside from foam to keep the birds
    from making a nest in the tail cone of your planes I removed one nest
    the size of a life preserver only to have another appear 3 weeks
    later . Worse yet I found some blue eggs in it.( I think they were
    starling eggs) I am thinking of having my girlfriend stich some kind of
    canvass cover to close off the tail cone during the nesting season./Any
    input /advice appreciated regrads Chas

    Steve, and all,

    I'm not laughing, because I had forgotten all about
    that. I did exactly that years ago, with a sport I had
    tied down, and it worked. Right now I have a realistic
    plastic owl sitting on the cowl of my Sierra. I don't
    know if it works or not, but I haven't had any birds
    in my hangar, and my 11yr old grandaughter, who put it
    there for me, for that purpose, swears by it.

    2 birds nests in a23-24 in a month :(

    I have bought the main cabin cover and tail cover from him. Fits perfectly
    and have no fit problems at all. great in the wind and resonably priced.
    When I checked last this place was even cheaper than Bruces covers.

    Chas,

    Planecover.com has a tailcone boot that fits great and keeps the tailcone
    closed to birds.

    http://www.planecover.com/redirects/page_2.htm# and click on "Tailcone Boot"
