Why have they come and how can we get rid of them?

Maybe you could try scaring them with firecrackers.

OH, OK, I see now, you're in Charlotte, those vultures may well be looking for what is left of the Panthers.

No- not Charlotte- Mooresville.

I am thinking they got foreclosed on down in the Point!

Seriously though- they always used to roost at the farm up near Mallard Head Golf course, but for the last few weeks we have noticed them here ,mainly at night and when weather is about to take a turn for the worse.

They favor the Pine trees-I guess for the shelter and tonight they're out back and front.

Around 40 or more in total and they are pooing all over the picnic bench at the front and we have our house on the market too, plus I don't like the big bu----s hanging around

Firecrackers,where can I get them?
Any other suggestions please?

They will move on; I had them one year when I lived in Huntersville. They would perch on our deck fence looking in house it was creepy I would recommend a dog if you do not want to wait.

Oh heavens-if they start looking into the house from the deck I'm off.
Maybe I can borrow a dog from a neighbor

Grab firm on the leash though or wrong kind of turkey. Hopefully the barking will be suffice.

I wouldn't bother them . Be glade that you can see wild birds and let them move on unmolested.

Just a get a BB rifle and shoot at them. The BB's wont hurt them and after a few days it will scare them off as a place not to roust in. Treat it like a Pavlov exercise (bell & food).

Better make sure it's one of those tree climbing dogs, otherwise that may not do much good.
