Solution Spotlight: Controlling Pesky Critters Humanely

Bird-X has been producing humane pest and bird deterrents for 45 years. Established in 1964, its first product was an ultrasonic repellent engineered to affect pest birds using audio signals undetectable to human ears. Since that time, the company has continued to develop unique and effective products and now offers a full arsenal of bird repelling devices and other pest and critter deterrents. In fact, according to company literature, today Bird-X offers the most comprehensive line of eco-friendly (i.e. "green"), environmentally safe, non-toxic and non-harmful pest and bird-control products available. They range from state-of-the-art laser technology to ultrasonic/sonic bird control, goose and pigeon repellents, bird spikes, bird netting, animal sound repellers and taste aversion gels and solutions.

Bird XPeller
Bird-X deterrents are the result of decades of scientific study and field testing. These products fall into four basic categories:
  • Physical Barriers: Bird Spikes, Sticky Gels, Bird Netting
    Gator Guard
  • Sound Repellers: Bird XPeller, Critter Blaster, Goose Buster
  • Ultrasonic Sound Deterrents: QuadBlaster QB 4, Ultrason X
  • Taste Aversions: Bird Repellent Sprays, Bird Repellent Solutions
  • birdx_terror-eyes
    Terror Eyes
    Visual Deterrents: Bird BLazer, Terror Eyes, 3D Coyote

Bird-X notes that while each of its products is an effective deterrent on its own, using them in combination (i.e. a sound device plus a visual device plus a physical roost inhibitor) can yield significantly greater results than any one product alone. This is especially true in situations where pest birds are particularly stubborn, where they have nested in one place for extended periods, or where an area provides food, warmth or shelter. In spite of your best efforts, does this sound like your plant or facility? If so, a combination of Bird-X products will work synergistically to create an aurally, visually and physically undesirable environment for bird and animal pests. MT
