It was very interesting to hear how these clever little blighters (Hirundo neoxena) have learned to open doors by activating sensors.  Obviously it is hard to keep them out if they want in.
Does anyone know of any method of keeping them out of places where they are not so welcome swallows? Is bird proofing or the like the only answer or do raptor calls or owl cut-outs have any effect?
I am interested to hear any responses from both locally (Australia) or overseas.
