Beside this, what smells do birds hate?
Birds dislike the smell of hairspray, perfume and after-shave—they can be toxic. While birds possess olfactory glands glands, enabling them to smell, they do not rely on this sense as much as humans or other animals. Birds primarily use their sight and keen sense of hearing to find food and detect predators.

Also know, how do you stop birds from building nests under carport?
Place a rubber fake snake or owl somewhere on your carport. This should be enough to scare away the birds at first. Move the snake or owl around every two to three days. This should deter all but the bravest birds from roosting in your carport.
What home remedy keeps birds away?
