Birds Loiter and Feast on Supermarket Meat Aisle

Birds Loiter and Feast on Supermarket Meat Aisle

Posted on December 3, 2015 by Terri Anne Meyer in Articles

It’s shocking but true. Several birds were recently filmed eating packaged meat inside a US Wal-Mart by a stunned shopper. The birds had flocked around the hamburger and were seen eating meat out of the packages. While the birds temporarily fled when the shopper was going through the meat, the birds returned as soon as she left. Health Department inspectors had to remove over a dozen stray birds from the packaged meat display.

Keeping Birds Out

It takes an experienced pest bird professional to keep pest birds out of big box stores, warehouses and other areas where food is sold, processed and stored. Just chasing them out with a broom or shooting them down with a pellet gun are not only ineffective but interruptive and potentially dangerous. The best way to keep birds out of sensitive areas is to consult a bird control professional—like the pros at Bird B Gone. Here are just a few of their recommendations.

Blocking out Birds with Bird Netting

Bird Net 2000 Heavy Duty Bird Netting seals out pest birds from roofs, warehouses, loading docks, and other exposed or semi-exposed areas, It’s easily installed under exposed roofing areas, pipes and other perches birds might use once in a store. Specially fabricated of a tough UV-stabilized polyethylene mesh, Bird Net 2000 is rot-proof, waterproof and flame resistant. This durable netting is designed to perform as an effective bird deterrent through a wide range of temperatures—from -250F to +270F. Bird Net 2000 comes in several stock sizes, as well as custom cuts up to 200 feet in length or width. The bird netting is also available in different mesh sizes to effectively control the species of pest bird in the area where birds have become a problem. Choose the 1-1/8-inch mesh for pigeons and crows, and the ¾-inch mesh for smaller birds like starlings and finches. Bird Net 2000 even comes in several colors—black, stone or white—to blend in with its background.

Pass-Thru Vinyl Strip Doors

Bird B Gone’s Vinyl Strip Doors block out pest birds from loading docks where their entry would contaminate areas with bird droppings and debris. Vinyl Strip Doors are available in either standard sizes or custom cuts and in a variety of widths and lengths. The panels come complete with all the necessary hardware and are ready to hang. The stripped panels separate easily to allow crew, pallet loaders and forklifts to pass through them.
