@sah612:  that’s exactly what I was thinking!!. Or, everytime you see someone sitting out there, have a stick you can poke out the window, with curtains closer, and poke them relentlessly. LOL.

I love the cactus idea!!! Or barbed wire. It probably wouldn’t be worth the effort, but it wouldbe amazing to rig a bucket of water to dump on their head if they sit on the ledge!

Cactus bushes, and call the police! They are trespassing

There is glass you can buy that is used for fireplaces. They come in a ton of colors and look decorative. I would super glue shallow pans (like cookie sheets -spray paint a pretty copper, black or brown color, if you like) and fill them with the glass. Or you could use regular glass.

You can also use the museum glue they use in museums to keep stuff on the ledges, but it won’t keep things from being broken. 

How about bricks, glued on a slant on the ledge? They would look like they are on a slant. Put them 2 in apart, so no one can climb up on the ledge or if they do they can’t sit comfortably? Lastly, can you put a screen up to block the ledge entirely? Or burglar bars?

rounded burglar bars that go past the ledge to leave room for potted plants is the best bet i think. . . unfortunately. . . 

 

or a super soaker squirt gun…

What would be awesome but probably doesn’t exist and would violate noise ordinances would be a motion detector that sets off an air horn when someone gets too close to the window.  In the absence of such an invention, I like the idea of pigeon spikes.

@skyeatnight:  I’m soooo on board with the sprinkler/squirt gun idea. Or the pokey stick…. which wouldn’t help you sleep but would still be hilarious.

This thread is awesome.
