How to Get Rid of Birds Without Hurting Them

Posted on May 31, 2014 by Alex Kecskes in Bird Control

No matter how much one likes to hear them sing and chirp, there comes a time when birds become bird pests. Whether at a pool or garden, birds can quickly become a nuisance. They can poop in your pool and eat your prized fruits and vegetables. Bird droppings can contain any of 60 known diseases, which means lots of work in constantly cleaning and disinfecting. The problem many nature conscious property owners face is how to get rid of birds without harming them. Noisemakers and blasts with water hoses don't really work, for the little critters always seem to come back the minute you go in the house. And you certainly don't want to resort to poisons or pellet guns.

Fortunately for you, the bird control experts at Bird B Gone have some suggestions in how to get rid of pest birds, effectively and humanely.

Distract them with Visual Bird Deterrents

These deterrents exploit a birds natural alertness to danger. Flash Tape strips crackle and reflect sunlight to constantly distract birds. The teardrop shaped Scare Eye Diverter is an iridescent foil banner boasting a huge predator eye that makes birds believe they are being sized up for a meal by a huge predator. Predator eye Bird-Scare Balloons work on the same principle. Hang these visual deterrents around the pool or garden and move them about every so often to get rid of birds.

Intimidate them with Sonic Bird Deterrents

Bird B Gone's Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic broadcasts pre-recorded distress and predator calls that convince birds they're being hunted by their natural enemy (like hawks and falcons). The sounds emitted resemble natural bird calls so they won't bother your pets or neighbors. The Bird Chase device is not like ultrasonic devices, which emit high-frequency sounds birds cant hear. It comes with a built-in speaker to cover up to an acre. Since its solar powered, it can easily be placed to get rid of birds wherever they gather most often.

Block them with Plastic Bird Spikes

These anti-perching, anti-roosting spiked strips will get rid of birds gathering on rooftops, patio covers and other elevated areas. They're blunted at the tips and approved for use as a bird deterrent by the US Humane Society and PICAS. Ideal for large birds like pigeons, crows and gulls, Bird B Gone plastic bird spikes are fabricated of rigid UV-resistant unbreakable polycarbonate to resist rain and sun exposure (they're guaranteed for a full 5 years). The spiked strips come in 3-, 5- and 7-inch widths to create a bird barrier up to 7 inches wide. They even come in a variety of colors including brick red, white, crystal clear, light grey, brown, black and tan to make them barely noticeable. The spiked strips are easily installed using screws, glue or tie downs.
