Humane, Effective Bird Control Methods
Also known as anti-roosting spikes and bird control spikes, these devices have long, needle-like rods that protrude from a flat base. When bird spikes are attached to rooflines, building ledges, and other common bird gathering spots, birds cannot land to perch or roost. If a bird attempts to land on the bird spikes, it will receive an unpleasant prick that is strong enough to make the bird uncomfortable, but not so strong that it will harm the bird. Bird spikes are one of the most effective and humane stand-alone bird deterrent around, and Wildlife Removal Services is highly skilled in installing these devices.
Birds like landing on a stable surface. If they feel like the spot where they have landed is unstable, they are likely to move on in search of a more suitable perch. Bird wire capitalizes on this natural preference by creating an unstable sensation for birds who land on it. This bird deterrent consists of nylon-coated, stainless steel wire that is suspended between stainless steel posts. Bird wire is the perfect bird control solution for property owners who wish to highlight the beauty of their property rather than the wildlife control methods they’ve implemented. It is also ideal for long, exposed edges on buildings, rooftop edges, deck railing, beams, and pipes.
While bird spikes and bird wire are effective bird control solutions, they are quite visible and not all property owners like that. Bird shock track systems are a humane and effective solution for those who prefer a low-profile, nearly invisible bird deterrent. The shock track delivers an undesirable sensation for birds that conditions them to avoid the area. Instead of a light prick or an unstable landing surface, shock tracks deliver a mild electrical shock that is harmless to birds. This form of bird control works on the premise of negative reinforcement — eventually, birds will learn that there are better places to roost where they will not get shocked.
This type of bird control is slightly more versatile than other methods, as it can be used for non-structural applications. As the name implies, bird netting is a woven sheet of material that is used to prevent birds from reaching certain areas. It is usually made out of polypropylene or polyethylene to provide a temporary, all-weather solution to protecting crops, fish, and buildings. Bird netting is available in a wide variety of mesh sizes, which allows for custom bird control solutions, but it is not intended to provide a long-term solution. Over time, the material can deteriorate and birds may find their way through the netting.
