How do I get rid of birds building nest on my Trailer
Anyone have a suggestion to stop these pesky birds from building under my gooseneck horse trailer. Either it's a Robin on my propane tanks or barn swallows mudding up the place. Please help.

Just keep knocking down their nests, preferably before there are eggs in them.

They'll eventually get tired of having to rebuild, and go somewhere else.

I knew someone who would place ammonia soaked rags in certain areas to discourage skunks and raccoons from coming. Don't know if it would work for birds, but its an idea.

Tie a cat under there!
Just kidding of course. . .
Perhaps you could tie some sort of sparkly, clattery, contraption there- a string of aluminum pie pans, or empty soda cans, silverware, tinsel streamers, etc.
That's what my Grandma used to do in her garden to keep the birds away.
