How to Keep Pigeons Away: Its as Simple as A-B-Z

Posted on May 29, 2014 by Alex Kecskes in Bird Control

Whether you own a single store or manage an entire strip mall, pigeons can pose a costly, year-around nuisance. Perching on rooflines, parapet walls, light poles, outdoor tables, chairs and benches, they create a smelly mess for shoppers. Unless you deter them with effective bird control devices, these filthy birds will gather in larger and larger flocks. How to keep pigeons away from shopping areas has been a major concern for commercial property owners worldwide. Fortunately, there are effective and humane solutions to this problem. The bird control experts at Bird-B-Gone have developed a plan that's as simple as A-B-Z.

Annoy them with Sonic Deterrents

Pest birds are constantly on the alert for the sounds of their natural enemies like hawks and falcons. Bird-B-Gone's Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic emits the pre-recorded predator calls of these swift and efficient hunters. The device also emits the sounds of pigeons in distress from these predators. Pigeons within earshot of these sounds will not want to stay. The distress and predator calls are broadcast for two minutes and repeated every 10 minutes to constantly intimidate pigeons. The calls resemble normal birds sounds to the human ear and won't annoy shoppers. And unlike ultrasonic bird scare devices, which emit sounds above the hearing range of birds, the Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic broadcasts sounds they will hear and keep pigeons away.

Block them with Bird Spikes

Bird spikes won't allow bird pests to land on or near them. These anti-perching, anti-roosting devices create a bird barrier on rooftops, parapet walls, canopies, light poles and other lofty areas. Bird-B-Gone Stainless Steel Pigeon Spikes are fabricated of marine-grade stainless steel and embedded into a UV-protected polycarbonate base so they'll last for years in rain and hot sun. The flexible base allows the spiked strips to easily wrap around curved surfaces of signage. The crush-proof spikes come in 1-, 3-, 5- and 8-inch widths to cover areas up to 8 inches wide. The base of each spiked strip is just 1.5 inches wide, so it can be installed on narrow surfaces using screws, glue or tie downs.

Zap them with Electric Track

Bird-B-Gone's Bird Jolt Flat Track imparts a harmless but unforgettable electric jolt to any pigeon landing on its surface. Its how to keep pigeons away from signage, ledges, parapet walls and eaves. The track measures just 1/4" at its highest point, so its virtually invisible. Bird Jolt features a UV-protected PVC base that bends a full 360, so it can easily follow curved signage, canopies and architectural features. Safe and effective, Bird Jolt is the only electric track bird deterrent system with patented anti-arcing design to prevent track short outs. Its also the only system with patented glue troughs along the base to insulate the tracks conductors.
