Default Eating the ceiling

We have that nasty, dust collecting popcorn ceiling and there is one spot where Wooster can reach the ceiling and today for some reason he decided to see if it was tasty or fun. It's a spot he loves to perch on when he has free time and it would be hard to move the sling down right now so I just tacked up a scrap of fabric. Can anyone think of a better method?

Personally, I'd remove the hammock.

I agree with Therm.
The room doesn't appear to be very budgie safe.

There is way too much fabric available for your budgie to chew piled up in that hammock and adding another piece up by the ceiling is unlikely to help anything.

Ingestion of fabric fibers can cause crop impaction.
I'd also get rid of the fish tank if that is the room where you are letting Wooster have his out-of-cage time.

The tank has a hamster in it and it has a lid so no worries there. And we have removed the hammock. Thanks for the input.
