Flash tape is a visual deterrent that can be used in garden areas to keep pest birds away from plants and seeds.  You can mount the flash tape on poles in your garden, as the breeze moves the pieces of shiny Mylar tape, the suns reflection off of the tape irritates the birds and they will stay away. Products designed to rid pest birds vary in price and scope and fall into the categories of bird deterrents and bird repellents. Certain areas had to be monitored constantly to make sure pigeon droppings weren’t infiltrating stadium concession areas, which could present safety code violations and cause fans to get sick. Fortunately, there are more humane solutions to ridding stadiums of pesky birds. These proven methods are more effective that taking up arms against feathered invaders.

A physical bird deterrent such as bird spikes or shock systems best deters pest birds roosting on flat surfaces such as ledges and parapet walls. Bird Spikes are economical and easy to install. They make it impossible for the birds to land so they move on to the next favorable roosting area. It is important to implement a pest bird control system as soon as birds are noticed hanging around food processing plants. Proven methods are more effective that taking up arms against feathered invaders. These are usually predator calls and distress calls played in short intervals.  The sounds trigger the bird’s instincts to danger and they will go away.  

Be sure to get a sonic sound unit that is water proof and easy to program.  You should be able to choose your target bird; pigeon, sparrow, crow or what ever bird you are having a problem with. The time and money spent to install some type of bird barrier is well worth the investment.

Bird control, bird spikes- and methods how to control birds

Bird control, bird spikes- and methods how to control birds

The bird spike also known as anti- roosting spike.  It is device consisting of long, needle-like rods used for bird control     They can be attached to building ledges, street lighting, and commercial signage to prevent wild or feral birds from perching or roosting. They can be attached to building ledges, street lights birds from perching or roosting. Bird can produce large quantity of unsightly fences. Bird spikes are usually normally around 1 foot      Bird control spikes are most common in coastal areas and in city areas, where feral birds are more common and more likely to come into conflict with humans. The spikes can become clogged by leaves, debris and bird feathers.

The bird spike can be plastic spikes as well as stainless steel spikes. Most bird spikes do not harm birds in any way, they only prevent them from landing in areas where they can become harmful to people or property. These spikes are available in different shapes and sizes. The size and shape of the spike is dependent on what type of bird you’re trying to diversion. Bird spikes are made in one-foot or two-foot lengths, with different widths.  The widths of the spikes are usually 3″, 5″ and 8″.  The width of the bird spike used is determined by the area to be covered. The best way solution for chasing away birds and pigeons is to use stainless steel wire and stainless steel bird spikes designed to create a barrier that chases away birds or pigeons. The plastic spikes are sub divided into: 2″ wide plastic spikes and 4″ plastic spikes. The stainless steel spikes can be slim, regular and extra wide. Bird spikes have been the most effective type of bird deterrent.  They are also one of the most economical pest bird deterrents; requiring little to no maintenance once installed.

 

The best bird spikes have a flexible base.  This means they will easily conform to curved areas, an ideal feature for many outdoor signs and other hard-to-cover areas. The surface should be dry and free of bird droppings and other nesting debris. When using glue to install the bird spikes, apply the glue generously onto the base of the spike (about 1/2-inch thick). For uneven surfaces, you’ll need to apply more glue to ensure a firm seal. Be sure to press the base of the spike level with the edge of the surface. And remember to allow some overhang of the spike pins.
Birds are clever and will find a way to sneak around the spikes. For really wide ledges, use three or more rows of spikes and make sure to limit the gap between rows to two inches or less. Pest birds will find the cavity behind a spike strip and sneak in, so be aware of this and install the spikes carefully.

What more can I do to let maintenance engineers know that there IS a company specializing in BIRD CONTROL?

Question by qbanruben357: What more can I do to let maintenance engineers know that there IS a company specializing in BIRD CONTROL?
Don’t they know? . . . Birds are the cause of many diseases of humans and domestic animals. Birds and especially pigeons can carry lice, ticks, and can cause Histoplasmosis, Orinthosis, Cryptococcosis, and Salmonellosis. They cause property damage. Their feces and nesting material deface and deteriorate surfaces of buildings. Droppings contain acidic secretions and will gradually corrode metal surfaces such as Signage, A/C units, etc.
Liability Risks:
Slip and fall accidents from wet bird droppings, Automobile damage. Health claims from employees. AND on every building where birds are roosting and nesting you will find Dead birds, attracting a variety of parasites and insects. Sick and dying birds Accumulating and evaporating feces, eggs and a host of insects.
I can’t tell you how many times I hear “I didn’t even know there was an industry for that” WELL…There is. There’s a company that will not only clean and disinfect the area but PERMANATELY keep them AWAY!

Best answer:

Answer by solo
Depends on your Country but in my experience (UK) it is a central part of pest control strategy.

With your knowledge of bird control you should be able to identify buildings affected by bird pests. Once identified you should be able to contact the building owners (not the maintenance contractor) and offer a short presentation on the risks and benefits of control. I would also target car dealerships and local authorities.

Offering a local paper an article on the problem might also be a good strategy … there are always slow news days needing fillers.

Good luck with it.

I have lawn grass creeping into my perrenial garden. What is the best way to get rid of what’s there and keep new grass out?

Best answer:

Answer by roses
My husband put rail ties in to separate the grass and garden. It does help but isn’t fool proof. I go through the garden beds once a week and pull out any weeds and baby grass popping up. I try to get as much of the root as possible.

Bird on a Wire; Bird Control in the Transmission & Distribution Industry

Bird on a Wire; Bird Control in the Transmission & Distribution Industry

Pest birds cause more power system outages worldwide than any other animal. When they land, poop and nest in areas vital to the transmission and distribution of electrical power, the resultant outages can be costly to both utility companies and customers. Electrical lines are ideal bird perches that combine observation and safety. Substations are attractive nesting places that invite birds to take up home. Birds such as red-tailed hawks, pigeons, sparrows, flickers and starlings will often inhabit large stations. The damage they cause usually falls in one of two categories: “Bird Strikes” and bird poop.

Bird Strikes occur when birds contact or “bridge” energized equipment with their bodies or wings. The repair or replacement costs to utility companies can range from 0 to more than 0,000 per outage. Customers suffer during these repair outages in the form of lost time and sales, damage to perishables, even property damage.

Besides the costs and damages resulting from direct Bird Strikes, the accumulation of bird poop on substation equipment and structures can also pose a huge problem. Bird poop is very acidic and can corrode materials and equipment. It can also be conductive under certain conditions and can cause system outages. Sending out crews to clean and repair the damage caused by the build-up of bird poop can be very costly. It’s often necessary to take systems off line for cleaning and repair. In addition, bird deposits can carry and transmit any of 60 known diseases, which can pose an additional safety hazard to maintenance crews.

Keeping pest birds away from substations and utility poles often calls for an integrated bird-control system. One that includes bird spikes, sound and mist deterrents, and various other means.

For starters, bird spikes can keep pest birds from landing on the cross arms of power poles, substations and other flat surfaces. Non-conductive, U.V.-protected plastic spikes provide an economical solution that’s easy to install. Spikes like these have been used successfully all over the United States and the world to keep birds from landing on utility poles and inadvertently causing outages. They’re also ideal for rural utility poles because they require virtually no maintenance.

Another effective pest bird deterrent, sound-activated systems, usually deliver distress and predator calls for nearly a dozen or more bird species. The calls play for several minutes with a time break to prevent birds from becoming accustomed to any one sound. The birds hear the distress or predator calls and seek other, safer areas to land and nest.

Dovetailing this bird deterrent technology with misting systems can be extremely effective. Misting systems typically use a food-grade, non-lethal aerosol fog formulation of methyl anthranilate approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. The mist irritates pest birds and deters them as they fly. Misting systems usually have a control center with multiple remote spray units to cover areas up to one square mile. Electrical and chemical tests conducted by PG&E in Northern California demonstrated that multiple mist applications did not jeopardize the integrity of equipment.

Non-conductive bird netting is another good bird repellant. Some manufacturers offer netting that is U.V. stabilized, flame resistant, and rot and waterproof—ideal for low maintenance outdoor applications. Netting is available in a variety of mesh sizes to discourage a wide range of birds—sparrows, starlings, pigeons, seagulls and even larger birds.
