Doves in Boat house roof

chucks_placechucks_place Posts: 113 Officer
I am having trouble with doves wanting to build nest in the roof of my boat house. Have been using a sling shot but the rubber does not last because of the heat and when I pull back it breaks. I was wondering what trouble it would be to use a air pellet pistol. Two different kinds one you pump up and the other is spring loaded. I have a ccp and do not want to jeopardise that just because some one saw me with a quote,,,,,pistol. I do live in a neighbor hood developement so there are houses around but I will only be shooting up into my boat house roof.

    I have Pigeons in mine... PITA !!!
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    Have you tried hanging an imitation owl from the rafters?

    If you made a ceiling out of chicken wire, would that keep them out?
