George Morco had been invaded by sparrows. George knew they were noisy, smelly and the nest would bring more sparrows. The problem was the sparrows nest was located above the front door between the white roof eave and the red bricks.
This post shows the eight steps to overcome the sparrows invasion.
Step 1: Fig.1 and fig.2 shows the damages from the sparrows. Checking the nest found that the sparrows had long departed. The damages had not penetrated the interior of the house. The repairs were slated for the exterior only.
