Default Birds Pooping on Name Sign Attached to Lampost

Any ideas on how to keep off birds that sit on the rod that extends from the lamp post & holds the name sign.
I have to clean the sign with soap & water every 2 days PLUS it looks bad from the street.

Find a piece of Barbed wire or the like and attach to the top.

A neighbor put a coiled, rubber snake at the base of his lamp post. It seems to scare the birds away.

Default Monofilament fishing line

A couple of lengths of fishing line suspended just above the horizontal rod ought to do the trick. They'll learn very quickly.

If none of the above work, there is a product that utilities use called 'bird stop' you might be able to get an 18 inch sample. It goes on with ty-raps, and has a lot of bristles pointed up that keep the birds from landing.

some stores sell a product that creates discomfort if the bird stands on it. Comes in a tube and you just lay a bead of it on the rod.

I wouldn't use a hose on the name signs.....It might just get water inside the plastic casing.

But thats just me....
