When bird droppings and other debris left behind by pest birds are covering your signs, lights, walkways and entryways, your company image takes a dive. Clients and pedestrians are not impressed by the unsightly mess pest birds create. Depending on the type of business, this could do more than ruin your company image; it could create an unhealthy environment, legal issues if someone slips and falls on bird droppings, and huge clean-up costs. Don’t let pest birds ruin your company image – Implement bird control.
If larger birds, like pigeons, gulls or crows, are landing and roosting on your business, bird spikes are an effective solution. Bird spikes create an uneven surface preventing birds from landing on the treated area. Bird spikes are humane and will not harm birds or installers. Bird spikes come in two foot sections for easy installation, and are sold 50 feet per box. They are available in a variety of sizes including super wide 8”. Installation is easy; simply glue, screw or tie down to most surfaces.
Bird gel is an effective and low cost bird deterrent. Bird-Off Gel is the original and first bio repellent gel. It is used to prevent pigeons and other large birds from roosting and congregating in unwanted areas. Unlike other bird repellent gels which are made from polybutene, Bird-Off Gel is an oil base bird repellent gel. It’s nontoxic and doesn’t harm the bird, even if the birds come in contact with Bird-Off Gel they can still fly or walk. They will not be trapped on the treated surface. The gel can be applied with a caulking gun.
An electric flat track system is effective in keeping birds off of unwanted surfaces. The low profile, electrical track system produces a mild electrical shock when birds land on its surface. The shock will not harm birds, but will modify their behavior by conditioning them to stay away from the area. Be sure to use an electric flat track system that is made in the USA and has anti-arcing and glue trough designs.
If birds are nesting on your business premises, full exclusion is the best solution. Bird netting is the best way to ensure full exclusion. Heavy Duty Bird Netting comes in a variety of different mesh sizes. There’s a 2-inch mesh to keep out larger birds like gulls, pigeons and crows; and a 3/4-inch mesh to exclude sparrows and other small birds. The best netting should be fabricated of a UV–stabilized material that’s been ISO 1806 protocol mesh tested, flame resistant and rot- and waterproof.
