Velcro barbwire

So there is an owl in our neighborhood. I am pretty sure his, "home" is the hand rail to the stairs on my boat trailer. If you did not know this, an owl is capable of producing 43 pounds of feces. ...a day. It is making for a pretty shitty situation.
I have seen the, "thing" that keeps birds from landing, it looks like a small row of needles. What I need is something like that but I can take on and off of the hand rail. Any ideas of suggestions?

What I really need is a Navy F18 to engage the fat bastard and take him out, but I guess something has to eat the stray field mice ...and cats... and ..probably a black bear or two based on the size of the bones I have seen.

And as a bonus to this post, I just realized, I have been on this forum for 16 years. No wonder all of you are looking so old.

Maybe have a board with the "spikes" with two squeeze clamps to attaching it to keep it removable?

I found this on the internet! I think it should work. https://www.hunker.com/13405803/how-to-get-rid-of-owls

Install an exploding device near the owl's areas. Exploding devices emit a gunshot-like noise that scares away pest birds, including owls. Combine this scare tactic with a scarecrow that you regularly move around your property.

In local news....a Tallahassee man was arrested for cruelty to animals when he reportedly killed an endangered owl with an IED.

Fake news... IED would be instant death and therefore not cruel. :D

"He was charged as a domestic terrorist because of the bomb making materials in his possession purchased from the internet."

Find some of those clear carpet runners that have the spikes on the bottom side and attach it to a piece of plywood with spikes up. Those sum bitches hurt on bare feet.

See, glad I asked. I didn't even think about that! I think I even have one of those mats somewhere.

So far zip ties sticking straight up seem to be working. But if more owl crap shows up I will start thinking of more high voltage deterrents.
