The North Star State has its share of pest bird problems, not the least of which is the double-crested cormorant. This large bird can eat fish 12 to 14 inches long to impact commercial fishing. Cormorants can also cause significant vegetation damage to commercial property. Other birds creating problems in Minnesota include swallows, which leave unsightly and damaging mud nests; Canada geese, which can quickly destroy a recreational area, producing up to 3 pounds of poop a day; starlings that nest or roast in dryer vents, roof vents, and above lights; and pigeons, which leave bird droppings and other bird parasites that have been known to carry many diseases.
Ideal for deterring large birds like cormorants, Bird B Gone’s Mega Spike features 7-inch tall spikes made of marine grade stainless steel. These durable spikes are manufactured into a UV-protected polycarbonate base to ensure they remain in the base for years of outdoor use. The spiked strips are 5 inches wide, and can cover ledges between 3- and 7-inches wide. The blunted tips will not injure birds, pets or installation crews.
Bird-B-Gone’s Bird Slope consists of angled, slippery PVC panels that deny swallows a solid footing, so they can’t land. Bird Slope panels are available in different colors to blend in with a building’s exterior colors. The maintenance-free panels are made of UV-protected PVC, so they’re sun- and weather resistant. They are easily mounted under eaves and other 90-degree nooks and crannies where swallows often build their nests.
Bird B Gone’s Migrate Goose Repellent is the liquid repellent that makes grass, bushes and flowerbeds unpalatable to geese. Migrate contains methyl anthranilate, a non-toxic food-grade grape extract that geese hate. The chemical won’t harm geese, pets or people; yet it repels geese from parks, golf courses, industrial parks, athletic fields and similar commercial property. Migrate is easily applied with any simple hand held sprayer. Economical to use, a single gallon treats over 16,000 square feet.
Bird B Gone’s Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic broadcasts distress and predator calls that intimidate starlings and other birds. And unlike ultrasonic devices, the Bird Chase device emits sounds birds can actually hear. Being solar powered means the device can easily placed wherever birds flock—like orchards and trees.
Bird B Gone Stainless Steel Bird Spikes come in 1-, 3-, 5- and 8-inch splay widths that won’t allow birds to land. They feature a patented “bend-and-crush” design so the spikes remain firmly embedded in an unbreakable UV-protected polycarbonate base. This flexible base bends a full 360 degrees, so it can easily “follow” a variety of curved mounting surfaces. Made in the USA, Stainless Steel Bird Spikes come with a 10-year guarantee.
