Choosing the right pigeon repellent can make all the difference on your property. To keep things up-to-date we've updated this blog to include one of our new innovative pigeon repellents, SpectrumV™ Holographic Bird Gel™.
Pest birds, like pigeons often roost and nest on the open beams, catwalks, towers, pipes and ledges of an industrial plant. Without an effective pigeon repellent to keep them away, these pest birds will gather in increasing numbers. In just a short while, their nests, droppings and debris will accumulate to cause all sorts of costly headaches for facilities mangers.
Bird droppings, for example, can result in considerable damage to valves, controls, gauges, switches and other mechanical and electrical components. Pigeon droppings are very slippery when wet. This can create, dangerous slip-and-fall hazards for workers on catwalks, steps and ladders. Bird droppings also carry dangerous diseases, which can reduce the effective workforce in your plant.

Transparent Bird Gel
Pigeons hate to land or walk on any sticky surface. It makes them feel trapped and uneasy. Bird-B-Gone's Transparent Bird Gel won't trap pigeons when applied properly. It works like the glue on Post-It Notes--just sticky enough to annoy these bird pests. This gel is an ideal pigeon repellent solution for keeping pigeons off open beams, catwalks, towers, pipes and ledges. Designed for industrial use, the gel remains effective within a wide temperature range from 15F to 200F. The gel is easily applied with a standard caulking gun and will also repel crows, sparrows, gulls, starlings and many other pest birds. A single case (12 tubes) of this gel effectively covers 120' x 3". The polybutene gel remains effective on the surface to which its applied for up to 6 months.
Another highly effective pigeon repellent offered by Bird-B-Gone is Bird-Off Gel. This liquid gel is ideal for keeping pigeons and starlings off ledges, I-beams, conduit, pipes, and many other flat or curved horizontal surfaces. The gel delivers a one-two punch of bird control--a scent that annoys pigeons and the sticky sensation the gel imparts on their feet. Both persuade these bird pests to stop landing on the surface. Applied in a zig-zag pattern using a standard caulking gun, the gel creates an effective, virtually invisible bird barrier that will not entrap pigeons. Made in the USA, the gel contains geraniol white pepper, mineral oil and silica. It has no capsaicin to cause a burning sensation and is safe for installers. A single application lasts up to one year and it easily cleans up using just soap and water.
Clean the Area First
Before implementing any bird control measures, be sure to clean away nesting materials and droppings from beams, catwalks, pipes and ledges. Pigeons are naturally attracted to the scent of nests and droppings, so they will consider these areas hospitable.
