The Beaver State has its own set of pest bird problems. Wine grapes in Oregon are being ravaged by voracious flocks of starlings, jays, robins, cedar waxwings and flickers. Salmon and steelhead trout are being threatened by 60,000 shorebirds (including as many as 30,000 double-crested cormorants) on East Sand Island at the mouth of the Columbia River. Ducks and geese cause severe damage to crops, such as grass seed, wheat and pastures. Woodpeckers, like the Northern flicker can damage wood-sided commercial buildings and structures. Pigeons deface and seriously damage commercial property and can carry many diseases.
For Vineyard Birds
Bird B Gone’s inexpensive visual bird deterrents are easily installed in high visibility areas of vineyards. Deterrents include Flash Tape, a 50-foot roll of iridescent foil tape that crackles in the breeze and reflects sunlight; the Scare Eye Diverter, a tear-drop-shaped iridescent foil deterrent that features a large “predator” eye designed to scare birds; and the Bird Scare Balloon, a large inflatable “beach ball” that also features a large mock predator eye.
For Shorebirds & Cormorants
Bird B Gone’s Agrilaser® uses advanced, patented optical laser-beam technology to harmlessly repel pest birds over great distances—up to 2,000 meters. The handheld device is silent and portable. Much like an approaching car, birds perceive the green laser beam as a rapidly approaching physical threat, so they flee the area. Developed with the help of farmers and ornithologists, the Agrilaser® is animal friendly and ideal for repelling a variety of birds.
For Geese & Ducks
Bird B Gone’s Migrate Goose Repellent contains methyl anthranilate, a non-toxic food-grade grape extract that geese and ducks 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. Economical to use, a single gallon treats over 16,000 square feet using a simple hand-held sprayer.
Bird B Gone’s BeakGuard Woodpecker Deterrent is an elastomeric acrylic finish that’s easily applied to wood to discourage woodpeckers from attacking siding and other vulnerable areas. The compound won't hurt woodpeckers or other birds. It’s easily applied with a brush, roller, paint pad or ordinary spray equipment. A single gallon covers approximately 180 square feet.
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.
