How to Keep Birds Away From Your Warehouse

How to Keep Birds Away From Your Warehouse

Posted on June 9, 2014 by Terri Anne Meyer in Bird Control

Warehouses with their wide open doors often attract pest birds in spring. The high rafters provide warm shelter, protection from predators, and abundant nesting nooks and crannies for birds to nest in. Some warehouses resort to washing ceilings with high-pressure cleaners only to discover that birds have come back. Other unsuccessful methods to keep birds away included fake snakes, owl decoys and pellet guns.

Bird pests like pigeons, crows and gulls can create costly problems for warehouse managers. Floor crew operating forklifts and other machinery can be distracted or startled by birds. Bird nests, feathers and other debris make ideal kindling for electrical fires (birds like the warmth of light fixtures and transformers). Bird droppings can cause dangerous slip-and-fall accidents and damage/deface floor inventory, obscuring labeling codes and shipping information. Food products can be contaminated by bird droppings, which can carry any of 60 known diseases.

Fortunately the bird control experts at Bird-B-Gone have a number of effective and humane bird deterrents that will keep birds away from your warehouse.

Sonic Bird Deterrents Scare Birds

If pest birds believe your warehouse is occupied by their natural predators, they will move on to safer environs for roosting and nesting. Bird-B-Gone's Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic broadcasts pre-recorded distress and predator calls that birds will recognize as danger. The calls last for two minutes and are repeated every 10 minutes. The Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic comes with a built-in speaker to cover an acre-sized warehouse. It can be mounted just outside your warehouse entrance or inside under a skylight. Its constructed of UV-protected materials, making it both sun- and weather-resistant. It even works on cloudy days. And it comes with a volume control to adjust the sonic output at the correct level to keep birds away.
