Does anyone know of a chemical or nematode, etc., that will decompose pigeon and dove droppings? They spend the night in my trees and without rain it builds up on my expensive gravel.

Watering the droppings in, or raking them out, is about the only thing you can do.

You could tie bird scare in the trees.(reflective tape) I used it before on the patio cover to keep them away and I use it on the fruit trees and grape vines

I guess the bird tape is going to have to do. I was hoping some red worms or something like would do it. Supposedly we do have worms here in AZ, but they must be really deep because I have never seen one.

I have earth worms or red worms every where but I use steer manure everywhere
