Remove Dead Animals or Carrion
Obviously, the first thing that attracts turkey vultures to a yard is a food source. If there are dead animals on your property, turkey vultures will come. Make sure you remove any dead animals from your yard immediately. Not only do they attract turkey vultures, but they can also cause disease and create a foul odor. Make sure to contact a professional to remove a dead animal from your premises. Animal Remover offers dead animal removal services for your convenience.
DIY Control Methods
Turkey vultures are persistent, but they’re scared of humans. If you have trees in your yard that turkey vultures like to roost in, go shake the tree or make loud noises to scare them away. If you do this enough, sometimes the vultures will get the message and leave your yard alone. Be sure to do this as soon as you see them land in the trees. You don’t want them to get settled and assume that your trees are a safe place to roost. Turkey vultures in your yard can easily be scared off by waving your hands and making loud noises. You can even opt to spray them with a hose.
Some other DIY wildlife management systems include tying blank CDs to helium balloons. The shiny disks can scare them off. If your neighbors don’t mind you can also consider playing loud noises over a stereo system to scare them away for a period of time. If vultures are wandering around your yard you can utilize a motion-activated sprinkler to scare them away.
Remember, turkey vultures are a protected species of bird, so you are not allowed to kill them.
