Stopping birds from eating grass and seeds on your lawn can be a particularly difficult task. Bird B Gone offers several methods to help stop geese, ducks, and black birds from congregating on your property. These birds can quickly destroy and consume large areas of newly seeded lawn. Geese, ducks, and black birds are federally protected birds, limiting control methods to solutions that do not physically harm the birds or their nests.
Bird control products for lawn care fall into three categories; liquid repellents, visual deterrents, and sound deterrents. Liquid bird control products are made from concentrated grape seed extracts which are sprayed directly on the grass or vegetation birds feed on.
Having a multifaceted lawn care plan will increase chances to properly deter birds away from your yard. This is why it is important to incorporate products from more than one of the following categories.
Theses liquid sprays irritate the bird’s mucous membrane, driving them away from the applied areas. This method of bird control will condition the birds to avoid the controlled areas. Liquid bird repellents should be reapplied every few days during early stages of the process, as this will ensure a heavy coating of repellent is always present.
Visual bird deterrent products can be incorporated into lawn care to protect your property. Coyote decoys are commonly used to scare geese and ducks away from large areas. Another effective visual deterrent product utilized by professionals is high powered green lasers. These lasers are handheld units typically used on large grassy fields such as golf courses. Visual deterrents mimic predatory animals causing pest birds to rapidly flee the area.
Sound bird deterrents will protect properties with large lawn coverage. Sound deterrents use audible prerecorded bird distress calls to warn birds in the area of coverage to flee the area. Predatory hawk calls are cycled into the auditory recordings scaring birds away. These bird calls are audible to the human ear and sound just like the recorded birds they are deterring.
