Judicial use of a Spanner ( as opposed to a Spammer ) to whack each one.  
Just for Anni  :D

    Don’t kill them all, they have a very complex way of mating , they won’t be around for long, once the wings drop off you won’t see them again,

    They are quite a sight Lyn aren't they ?  Fascinating little creatures.

    I was watching the seagulls a few days ago, wheeling around the sky catching as many as they could.  One flew past me and l said to it  "Please be careful, they're waiting for you".
    OH thought that was very funny for some reason......

    The best method is leave them alone, they feed a lot of birds. Gordon Ramsay told me that Philippa  o:)

    Just bare with them for a little while, once they’ve mated they’ll be gone and think of the birds and bats that will get a lovely feast.
