10 strategies for bird control

Posted by   on

Following are 10 methods for keeping pest birds at bay in a safe and effective way

1. Bird spikes

Bird spikes provide a physical barrier that prevents birds from landing on surfaces such as rooftop edges, ledges, and windowsills. Spikes come in plastic and stainless steel options—both of which offer constant coverage. They are easy to install, and stop birds from landing and nesting on elevated surface areas.

2. Bird netting

This is a great choice for semi-enclosed spaces and large open areas, like gardens. Bird netting comes in a variety of materials; heavy-duty and lighter options are available. It provides a protective barrier that keeps birds from entering, but allows sunlight in and allows for watering greenery.

3. Ultrasonic bird control devices

These devises play irritating high and low-pitch frequencies that don’t bother humans. Over time, the annoying ultrasonic frequencies make an area uninhabitable for pest birds, and they vacate elsewhere. These low-profile devices can be effective for facilities with high-volume human traffic, because they are silent to most people.

4. Sonic

Sonic devices broadcast bird alarm calls and terrifying predator calls that alert birds that an area is unsafe. To humans, these sonic recordings simply blend in with nature. But, to birds, the sounds are extremely frightening. Similarly to ultrasonic bird control units, these devices condition birds to not return with continued use.

5. Laser

Laser bird control units work by emitting laser beams with constantly changing patterns and colors. The blinding lights work day and night to scare pest birds, while the motion of the beams inhibits acclimation. Birds remain away from the area and are unharmed.

6. Drones

Drones used for bird control are another high-tech pest control method to enter the market. A drone’s threatening physical presence can be combined with sound technology. Recent versions of bird control drones use sonic devices to play recordings of predator noises, and can fly fully autonomously with integrated Google Maps customization. The combination of sight and sound offers a multi-pronged effect for pest bird control.

7. Shock track systems

These systems are a good option as a low profile bird control method. Nearly invisible shock track strips are installed on places like windowsills or ledges, and gently shock birds upon contact, alerting them not to land in the area. Shock track systems are humane, as they do not harm pest birds, but keep them off structures.

8. Liquid taste aversions

Liquid taste aversions cover grass, turf, and foliage, and these products can be sprayed across a large area, providing an extremely cost-effective solution for pest control. Treated surfaces deter birds because they make the area taste unpleasant. Meanwhile, bird gels can be applied to structures and repel birds by creating a sticky, uncomfortable surface that is not suitable for landing. To ensure that plants and other wildlife aren’t affected, non-toxic, biodegradable formulas are preferred.

9. Visual scares and predator decoys

These are user-friendly pest control methods, as they are usually inexpensive and low-maintenance. These visual deterrents alert pest birds that there is a threat in the area and force them to seek refuge elsewhere. The most effective stationary scares use reflective or moving parts. Many predator decoys look like extremely realistic owls, hawks, coyotes, falcons, and alligators.

10. Floating bird balls

These are physical barriers that completely cover a body of water’s surface. They prevent pest water birds, like geese and ducks, from landing and swimming on the water’s surface. Floating bird balls are an eco-friendly approach to pest control because they deter birds while allowing sunlight to enter in order to preserve the water’s ecosystem.
