Bird Control Hazers, Fogging and MA

Bird Control Hazers, Fogging and MA

Bird B Gone offers a number of effective and humane solutions for deterring pest birds and geese from open and semi-open spaces.

Use of Methyl Anthranilate as a Bird Repellent

Methyl Anthranilate (MA) is a non-toxic, EPA-approved product proven to repel birds.  MA is derived from sources such as concord grapes. grape seeds and has a mild grape smell. Birds dislike the scent of MA as it agitates their trigeminal nerve, irritating their eyes, beak, and throat. MA is “Generally Regarded as Safe” by the US Food and Drug Administration and is benign enough to use in a variety of applications.  Liquid MA is dispensed and used in Bird Hazing and Thermal Fogging applications.  MA in granular form is used in products such as Bird B Gone Avian Block. When it comes to safety, ease, and effectiveness, MA is a tried and true product to repel birds.

Bird Hazing Solutions

Bird Hazing is used when birds are a problem in enclosed to semi-enclosed areas where they are roosting and nesting. Proven effective in dispersing pest birds where other methods of bird control may be ineffective or impractical, Bird B Gone bird-hazing units efficiently deploy a light fog or haze of bird repellent made with Methyl Anthranilate (a non-toxic, food-grade ingredient). The active ingredient irritates a bird’s mucous membranes. Birds find the sensation unpleasant and will subsequently avoid the area. The effect is temporary and will not harm the birds.

Bird Hazing is particularly effective in removing birds from large enclosed to semi-enclosed areas, such as docks, overhangs, warehouses, aircraft hangars and plant nurseries. It has been proven effective for driving out pigeons, seagulls, geese, starlings, and many other pest birds. Bird Hazing is not recommended for heavily occupied buildings or structures that have a high volume of foot traffic.

The Bird B Gone® Bird Hazer is an affordable hazing system that releases a fine fog (less than 5-micron particle size) of liquid methyl anthranilate into the air. Each satellite unit features a 1-liter tank and uses far less liquid repellent than other hazing units. Each main control unit controls up to 3 satellite units for full perimeter coverage.

Thermal Fogging Solutions

Bird Fogging is used to move flocks of birds from wide open areas where they are a nuisance. Bird fogging is recommended for use against flocks of birds that gather and loiter in parks, golf courses, memorial parks snd other large open spaces. The fog is created using either a stationary or hand-held fogging unit. The units generate an aerosol of methyl anthranilate to produce a “wet fog” that will not penetrate shrubs. Fogging is best used in open areas where birds fly through or graze in. Fogging should be repeated as often as necessary to keep birds away.
