Want to Make Birds Go Away? There Are Many Ways To Go

Want to Make Birds Go Away? There Are Many Ways To Go

Homeowners and commercial enterprises spend millions of dollars every year trying to play catch up with the damage and nuisance inflicted by pest birds. If only there was a way to make birds go away. No one really wants to harm our fine feathered friends, we just want them to find a nice tree in the park to call home.

Perhaps no one wants to make birds go away more than commercial  building owners. For pest birds can lead to a myriad of costly problems. Their droppings not only seriously detract from a building’s appearance, but the acidic secretions produced by the fungi that live in these droppings can mar paint and other surfaces. Bird nests and droppings can clog gutters and down pipes, causing rooftops to leak; this debris can be sucked into ducts, grilles and vents, jamming air conditioning and heating units. It can get into rooftop turbine ventilators and ceiling windows, causing them to seize up. Cleanup and repair costs can go through the roof. Of course, there are many other reasons why commercial building owners want to make birds go away.

When bird droppings gather at building entrances they create a slippery surface resulting in huge slip and fall liability to commercial property owners. Bird droppings around loading bays and storage areas can mar the appearance of costly finished goods, as well as the cardboard packaging of these products.

Restaurant owners know fair well the problems pest birds can create. The offensive odors and noise can discourage customers. And bird droppings accumulated on signage  can ruin the image of even the most popular eatery. Pest birds can also be a health hazard, carrying and transmitting any of 60 known diseases. The mantra, just make birds go away is oft repeated in the commercial industry.

Today’s cash strapped homeowners are no less anxious about ridding their domiciles of pest birds. They don’t need to replace window awnings, air conditioning units, spa covers, solar panels and satellite dish antennas annually, thanks to bird droppings. Nor do they want their children exposed to the diseases carried by bird droppings left on patio tables and chairs.

Fortunately, for both homeowner and commercial building owner, there are a number of ways to make birds go away. And stay away.

Among the most popular is the bird spike. Ideal for pigeons and other large birds, these are available with rigid unbreakable polycarbonate spikes or stainless steel spikes. A cousin to the bird spike is the bird spider. These have proven effective for awnings and patio covers, since the spider arms flagellate  with the breeze, preventing pest birds from landing. The spiders also come in a number of diameters. Spikes and spiders are easy to install and while they appear menacing, they won’t harm birds.

A surprisingly simple and effective way to make birds go away, the bird slope is widely used by both homeowners and commercial applications. The angled, slippery PVC panels cause pest birds to simply slide off when they try to land. Bird slopes are ideal for eaves, ledges, beams and other 90-degree areas where pest birds tend to nest and roost. Another favorite bird deterrent is bird gel. It’s easy to apply with a standard caulking gun and leaves a sticky surface that pest birds hate to land on, yet it’s safe for birds (except swallows) and people. Gels are ideal for ledges, I-beams, parapet walls, conduit, pipes, and flat or curved surfaces.

To make birds go away from large commercial garages, airline hangars, courtyards, and other expansive areas, there’s bird netting. Netting can control all species of birds and is even prescribed by architects. Netting comes in U.V. stabilized, flame resistant and rot and waterproof varieties, as well as a number of mesh sizes to deter starlings, sparrow, pigeons, seagulls and larger birds.

Another family of products that will make birds go away from large areas are bird misting systems. Humane and effective, these bird-hazing systems release an ultra fine mist that really annoys pest birds. The mist typically contains methyl anthranilate, a grape extract that naturally occurs in concord grapes. Safe for people, pets, plants and birds, this chemical has been widely used for decades to deter a wide variety of pest birds including, sparrows, pigeons, starlings, crows, blackbirds and geese.

Making pest birds go away in a hurry are the electric-track bird repellers. Ideal for deterring pigeons, seagulls and larger birds in mostly commercial applications, repellers deliver a mild electric shock that’s harmless to birds. Easily mounted on ledges, signs, rooftops, and flat or curved surfaces, some repellers are low profile and virtually invisible. When choosing electric repellers, you should select models with a flow-through design to keep water from damming up on rooftops and other surfaces. Opt for corrosion-resistant tracks that resist alkali and acidic environments.

If you believe there’s nothing like movement to make birds go away, you can try motorized bird repellers. They’re ideal for keeping birds off AC units, rooftops, awnings and that covered boat you have sitting in front of the garage. Some newer models even run on energy efficient solar cells.

Those who prefer high-tech deterrents have a whole family of bird scare products to choose from. These include supersonic sound systems, which play distress and predator calls for up to 22 types of birds. The calls can be heard for up to one acre and will keep birds from invading  backyards, garden areas, pools, patios, gazebos, rooftops and other open spaces.

Finally, there are a number of “bird scare” deterrents for those on a budget. These have been proven effective in keeping birds from landing on trees, overhangs, gazebos, patios, eaves, near pools, and other areas. There’s iridescent reflective foil or flash tape, which creates an “Optical Distraction Zone” birds don’t like. There’s also the inflatable balloon imprinted with lifelike reflective predator eyes and markings. The best thing about these bird deterrents is how easy they are to set up in virtually any problem area. Some bird repellers even have iridescent foil eyes to scare away birds by day, and glow-in-the-dark graphics to keep pest birds away at night.

So, as you can see, if you want to make birds go away, there are many ways to go.

Got Pest Birds? Here’s How to Scare Birds Away

Got Pest Birds? Here’s How to Scare Birds Away

While bird populations in North America have dropped considerably in the past 40 years, birds tend to nest or rest on the nation’s coasts where nearly half the U.S. human population lives or works. Most birds serve an important role in the ecosystem, but three species of birds in the U.S. are considered pests. Birds categorized as pests include the pigeon, the house sparrow, and the starling. As pests, they can be legally controlled with no justification other than the property owner’s displeasure. Of course, there are many other reasons to scare birds away.

Besides being a nuisance and defacing homes, boats, buildings and monuments, pest birds also pose a serious health hazard. Because of their easy and far-reaching mobility, they can vector an alarming variety of serious diseases. Among these are histoplasmosis (a lung disease that can be fatal if untreated), salmonella, ornithosis (a lower or upper respiratory disease resulting in fever, chills and headache), pseudotuberculosis (causing fever and abdominal pain), and several other diseases, including West Nile Virus via

parasites (like fleas and mites) that live on their bodies or grow in their droppings.

If you want to scare birds away, it helps to know a little about the birds we regard as pests. The first of our fine-feathered friends is the pigeon. Initially introduced from Europe as pets, pigeon populations have expanded almost exponentially and are now considered by many to be pests. These birds congregate in huge numbers and contaminate public areas with their droppings. They deface both stone and metal monuments, and present a serious risk to aircraft.

Next up is the starling. An imported species not native to North America, starlings nest in roof soffits, electrical boxes, and structural crevices of buildings. Young starlings often gather in huge flocks where their droppings deface and damage structures and monuments, park benches, playgrounds and other areas.

Finally, there’s the sparrow. These small birds build fancy nests in gutters, electrical boxes, roof soffits, door housings, and other man-made openings. Sparrows often create expensive problems when they clog rain gutters and downspouts. Their elaborate nests in electrical equipment can cause electrical shorts and fires.

So how to scare birds away?

For pigeons and large birds, one proven and highly effective methods is the use of Bird Spike strip. They look menacing, especially to pest birds, but they won’t harm them. The spikes simply discourage birds from landing. Some bird spikes are made of rigid unbreakable polycarbonate. Others employ flexible stainless steel. Another option is the Bird Spider. The spider arms flagellate with the breeze to scare birds away. Spiders are available in a wide range of diameters to deter different bird sizes and cover wider and wider areas. They require little or no maintenance and they won’t harm birds.

One of the most economical ways to scare birds away is through the use of Bird Scare products. These flashy, twirling objects and banners use iridescent reflective foil and shiny tape to create an “Optical Distraction Zone” that discourages pest birds from landing. An unusually effective bird scare product is the inflatable balloon with lifelike reflective predator eyes. These scare-eye diverters are easily attached in areas frequented by birds. Some even feature glow-in-the-dark backsides to repel birds at night. Bird scare products can be easily set up in and around patios, vineyards, pool areas, overhangs, gazebos, boats and other troublesome areas.

A more technical approach to scare birds away involves the use of Electric Shock Bird Repellers. Ideal for pigeons, seagulls and larger birds, these repellers use electrified tracks to impart a mild electric shock when birds try to land. The pest birds are not injured; the mild “jolt” just changes their roosting habits so that they move on. The tracks are easily mounted on signs, ledges, rooftops, and flat or curved surfaces. Some manufacturers offer low profile tracks that are virtually invisible from ground level. Other manufacturers offer electric tracks with a flow-through design to prevent water from damming up on rooftops and other surfaces.

Imagine the sound of fingernails on a chalkboard and you’ll get an idea of what our next category of bird scare products sounds like–at least to a bird. Known as Audio Bird Deterrents, they produce ultrasonic sounds that annoy birds. Ideal for walled-off or enclosed areas like sheds, parking garages, and overhangs, these audio devices will scare most birds away–birds like pigeons, sparrows, starlings or seagulls.

There’s also a category of products that use chemicals to scare birds away. Known variously as Foggers or Misters, these bird deterrents utilize an aerosol delivery system to disperse a food-grade, non-lethal aerosol of methyl anthranilate. Approved by the EPA, this chemical irritates pest birds and deters them as they fly through it. Ideal for large areas, many systems feature multiple remote spray units that can cover areas up to one square mile. These environmentally friendly systems won’t harm birds and won’t affect electrical equipment.

Finally, there’s the family of motorized products that work quite effectively to discourage pest birds from landing. These bird repellers utilize rotating arms to scare birds away. Ideal for parapet walls, roofs, signs, billboards, or any flat surface, some are battery powered, others use a plug-in power source. And some are even solar powered.

How can I chase away a noisy bird that chirps all night long?

Question by Kristee: How can I chase away a noisy bird that chirps all night long?
I have never heard a bird make noise all night like this. I haven’t been able to see it yet, but the noises it makes are amazing. It imitates every other bird noise and can even sound like a frog! I am a bird lover and don’t want to hurt it, but I can’t sleep with my window open anymore because it is so loud.

Is it possible this bird is up at night because it is hatching eggs? I don’t want to chase it away from its nest or anything.

Bye Bye Birdie, Yes You Can Scare Birds Away

Bye Bye Birdie, Yes You Can Scare Birds Away

 

While most birds are loved by man, pest birds represent a significant and ongoing problem. According to the FAA, bird strikes cost civil aviation almost 0 million a year. Keep in mind that just one bird can destroy an expensive jet engine in just seconds. The fact is, bird strikes on military airfields endanger our troops, can jeopardize the mission and ruin equipment. It’s easy to see why many people look for ways to scare birds away.

 

Growers don’t much care for pest birds either. Native and non-native bird species have been known to cause crop losses in vineyards–typically 30 percent to as much as 100 percent. Pest birds can quickly devour seeds and ripening fruit. Many growers pull out all the stops to scare birds away.

 

In the cities and urban areas,pest birds can wreak havoc with building facades, statues, schools, public playgrounds and parks. Bird droppings can destroy the paint on cars and buildings. They leave an unsightly mess and can carry a number of communicable diseases. Diseases transmitted by birds include aspergillosis, salmonellosis, thrush, avian tuberculosis, coccidiosis, cryptococcoses, encephalitis, histoplasmosis, Newcastle disease, toxoplasmosis and West Nile virus. No wonder so many municipalities have spent considerable sums of money to scare birds away.

 

The feral pigeon is by far the most prolific urban pest bird in the world. Originally descended from the domesticated rock dove, they are now wild and live in close proximity to man. Feral pigeons are scavengers, scrounging for food in cities and town centers, where they are often eagerly fed by the general public. Feral pigeon populations are on the rise due to a lack of natural predators, the constant supply of food and their ability to breed year around.

 

Other pest birds include the house sparrow, the starling and the gull. Gulls are scavengers and feed from scraps of food in town centers as well as sewerage outlets and domestic garbage dumps. Starlings often gather in huge flocks where their droppings ruin structures and monuments. Small but still a nuisance are sparrows, which often clog rain gutters and downspouts, and frequently cause electrical equipment shorts and fires.

 

To scare birds away without harming them can prove to be quite a challenge. Fortunately, there are a number of pest bird deterrents that are available to humanely discourage birds from landing, roosting and nesting.

 

For pigeons and large birds, consider the use of the highly effective Bird Spike strip. Harmless to birds, the intimidating spikes simply discourage birds from landing. Some bird spikes are made of stainless steel, others use rigid unbreakable polycarbonate spikes (the poly spikes are less expensive).

 

For flat even areas, the Bird Spider has proven its worth as an effective pest bird deterrent. The spindly spider arms whip around in the wind to scare birds away. Spiders come in several diameters to deter various bird sizes. Harmless to birds, spiders are easy to maintain and easy to install. Similar to the spider, the motorized whirly-gig utilizes rotating arms to scare birds away. Ideal for parapet walls, roofs, signs, and billboards, some of these products are powered by batteries and others are even powered by solar energy.

 

Next up are the growing number of balloons and banners of iridescent reflective foil and shiny tape, which create an “Optical Distraction Zone.” Some of these bird scare products feature lifelike reflective predator eyes. Others have “day-glow” backsides to scare birds away at night. One of the many things that make these bird scare products so appealing is their low cost and easy installation. They’re ideal for use on boat docks, pool areas, overhangs, gazebos, and other troublesome areas.

 

We know people get irritated whey they walk across a carpet, reach for a doorknob and get shocked. It’s the same with birds. Electric Shock Bird Repellers have been used for years to scare birds away. Ideal for pigeons, seagulls and larger birds, these electrified tracks mildly zap birds that try to land. Easily mounted on ledges, signs, rooftops, and flat or curved surfaces, many electric tracks have a low profile tracks, so they can’t be seen from below.

 

While screaming at birds or blasting loud horns can scare birds away, there are bird deterrents that use ultrasonic sounds that annoy birds–annoy them enough to discourage them from landing. These audio deterrents imitate distress calls and predator calls. They’re ideal for enclosed areas like parking garages, overhangs and sheds, where  pigeons, sparrows, starlings or seagulls sometimes gather in flocks.

Farmers and growers have long used this next category of bird deterrents to scare birds away. Known as Foggers or Misters, these disperse a food-grade, non-lethal aerosol of methyl anthranilate. The chemical has been approved by the EPA and won’t harm birds. It simply irritates birds that fly through it, convincing them to avoid the area. Some misting systems feature multiple remote spray nozzles to allow specific areas to be treated and pinpointed.

Q&A: how do i keep crows and magpieswho have nested in our garden away from the bird stations?


by BWP13

Question by aine: how do i keep crows and magpieswho have nested in our garden away from the bird stations?
we do throw out bread for them , but they are forever around the feeding stations.

Best answer:

Answer by margecutter
There are exclusionary feeders that work on one of two different principles. Some feeders work on weight – there is a mechanism that shuts the feeding holes when a large bird or squirrel gets on the feeder, so that it can not feed. The other simply uses strong mesh wire around a feeder, with the mesh being large enough to let smaller birds in but small enough to exclude the larger birds and mammals.

Some examples:
