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.
Here’s what the bird control experts at Bird B Gone recommend for solving Minnesota’s bird problems:
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 Avian Migrate Goose & Bird Repellent irritates the birds’ mucous membranes causing them to avoid the area. The chemical won’t harm geese, pets or people; yet it repels geese from golf courses, industrial parks, and similar commercial property.
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 hear. Being solar powered means the device can easily be 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. Stainless Steel Bird Spikes come with a 10-year guarantee.
