Q. Have you ever been asked about how to deal with buzzards legally? The birds are federally protected; otherwise, we would have an obvious solution.
I have two buildings being summarily damaged by turkey vultures. On one building, they’re eating the caulk from the precast parapet joints. On the other, they appear to be eating the EPDM roof membrane.
I once dealt with a similar situation in the past (birds eating caulk joints) by re-caulking the parapets in two stages: first with a standard (silicone based), flexible caulk that was then covered by a much thicker tape type caulk applied over the softer, more vulnerable joint. I don’t remember what products were used, but it stopped the problem.
