The Keystone State has a unique set of pest bird problems. Crows, robins, starlings, grackles, finches and sparrows can wreak havoc with many of the fruit crops in Pennsylvania. Most damage occurs on farms close to town environments where birds like robins and starlings gather in large flocks. Orchards isolated from other orchards suffer more damage than those adjacent to each other.
Pigeons can be a costly nuisance around Pennsylvania barns and feed storage areas, devouring grain and seed. House sparrows also feed on grain and seeds around barns and in fields. Equally problematic are house finches, building nests in vines and cavity-like openings in buildings, and on building ledges. Huge flocks of crows often plague various commercial areas around Pennsylvania with messy bird droppings, resulting in costly cleanups.
For Crop Birds
Bird B Gone’s inexpensive visual bird deterrents are easily installed in high visibility areas of crops and 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.
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.
For Sparrows and Finches
Bird B Gone’s Bird-Hazing System releases a light haze of EcoBird 4.0. Made with Methyl Anthranilate, a non-toxic, EPA approved food-grade ingredient, the solution irritates a bird’s mucous membranes. When pest birds pass through the fine mist, it creates an unpleasant sensation that will force them to avoid the area. The repellent effect is only temporary and will not injure birds. The hazer comes with a 1-liter tank and uses considerably less liquid repellent than other hazing units. The haze deployed is extremely fine, with a particle size smaller than one micron, which allows the repellent to remain airborne longer. The hazer’s multi-head unit ensures wide coverage. Each central unit controls as many as six satellite units for complete perimeter coverage of
