Can solving your bird problem be as easy as using a smell to repel birds? With the help of Bird B Gone’s revolutionary aromatic bird repellents, the answer to this question is a definitive yes. See how aromatics repellents send birds flying.

How Do Bird Repellent Smells Work?

Bird repellent smells use passive scent technology to disperse MA into the air and effectively repel a wide variety of birds. Aromatic bird repellents are an exciting new way to repel birds with nothing but the sense of smell.

To be effective, aromatic bird repellent smells needs to meet the following criteria:

  1. Be a substance that’s proven to repel birds.
  2. Be easy to disperse and emit smell
  3. Be safe and inoffensive for people in the area
  4. Be long lasting where frequent reapplication is not required

What Scent Repels Birds? Methyl Anthranilate

There’s one smell that repels birds for certain: birds do not like the smell of a substance called methyl anthranilate or MA for short. 

  • Methyl Anthranilate (MA) is a food-grade ingredient found in the seeds of Concord grapes.
  • MA is what gives food and beverages their grape flavoring
  • Commonly used as an additive in candy, bubble gum, soda and even perfumes for its distinct scent.

But here’s the interesting thing: birds hate it. For our feathered friends, MA is like pepper spray; it irritates their trigeminal nerves and provokes a highly disagreeable sensation in their throats. MA is completely harmless and has no lasting effect on the birds, but the initial sensation when the smell invades their senses is so unpleasant it will trigger their instinct to flee the area.

Where Do Aromatic Repellents Work Best?

Aromatic bird repellents are best suited for outdoor areas where pest birds like to congregate such as:

  • Balconies, decks, patios, garages, tool sheds, warehouses, barns, building ledges
  • Outdoor dining areas, windowsills, backyards, boats, and other outdoor areas.

Choose from Two Options:

Our aromatic repellents are affordable, fast acting, trouble-free solutions for outdoor pest bird problems.

There’s no need for power outlets, batteries, or frequent reapplication spraying; these aromatics work much like the air fresheners that emit fresh scents into your home. 

Simply set them, forget them, and enjoy a bird-free space for weeks and months at a time.

Tips & Tricks to Help Repel Birds with Smell

  1. Find the Right Location. Determine what features in your space attract birds and address them. For example, remove food, trash and water sources when possible and add exclusion products to prevent birds from accessing roosting or nesting sites. 
  2. Clean the Area. Birds are attracted to their own messes; what looks like a disaster to you looks like home to a bird. Clean and disinfect areas covered by droppings and remove all nesting materials. 
  3. Act Quickly & Don’t Wait. Any bird control strategy is more successful when caught early. Established birds are very hard to remove. 
  4. Use Layers. When protecting larger areas, additional dispensers and coverage may be needed. Many effective bird control strategies involve combinations of products and techniques.
