Bird Control for Pools

Searching for ideas on how to keep birds out of your pool can be a daunting task. To your luck, Bird B Gone has simplified this undertaking by listing out the most popular products designed to stop those pest birds from pooping in your pool. Although ducks are the most common culprit when it comes to contaminating your pool, you will find pigeons, black birds, sparrows and other small birds flocking to the area. 

The most effective way to keep birds out of your pool will be to incorporate a multifaceted plan with one or more of the following bird control products. Although pool covers are surely an effective solution, they are expensive and a time consuming chore to deploy after each swim. For this reason, we have listed the following simple and easy to use product recommendations for your pool area. These products are made to create an uncomfortable environment for the pest birds on your property. 

Note: It is important to clean away nesting materials and droppings thoroughly before installation of products.

Products that Keep Ducks Out of Pool 

Ducks and other waterfowl will make their way into your pool. For these areas we recommend visual deterrent products that float in the water. The Scare Eye Balloon is an inflatable yellow balloon with predator eye decals printed directly on design. The yellow color and predator eye mimic predatory bird species, repelling ducks from swimming in the pool. Depending on the size of the pool, you may need to inflate multiple scare balloons. 

Scare Eye Balloon

  • Inflatable yellow scare balloon
  • Float in the pool to stop ducks and other waterfowl
  • Predator eye print will stop ducks from pooping in pool
  • Made from weather resistant vinyl plastic material 
  • Inflates to approximately 18-in diameter 

How to Keep Birds from Pooping on Pool Deck

Stopping birds from pooping on your pool deck requires products that deter birds from open spaces. Products that do this exceptionally well are bird repellents and sound deterrents. Bird Repellents make the area unpleasant for birds with the active ingredient methyl anthranilate (grape seed extract). These repellents smell like grapes to people but cause irritation to most bird species. Sound deterrents utilize prerecorded bird distress calls to scare birds away from wide open areas, perfect for the pool deck. Keep in mind these recordings are audible bird distress calls, they sound just like birds to people. 

Avian Block Bird Repellent Pouches
