Rosemary, congratulations! You're the winner of the $20 Lowe's gift card. And, here's your answer: We talked to a highly-rated animal removal company, and their most effective remedy is a product that uses a very fine grape-scented fog. The... machine goes on your porch and then you need to refill it and replace the batteries throughout the summer as needed. There are other options as well, such as netting or using reflective items, like tape. Reflective items can deter some types of birds and may work with the barn swallows. Calling animal removal companies in your area can help you find the best solution for you. Good luck!
