The Tar Heel State has some serious pest bird problems. North Carolina’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services recently issued new mandates to protect the state’s poultry farms from an outbreak of bird flu. One of the biggest concerns is free-range chickens and turkeys, for unlike poultry house birds, free-range animals are easily exposed to the droppings of wild birds. Poultry in North Carolina is an $18 billion industry, employing approximately 100,000 people. Officials say the bird flu would be absolutely devastating to North Carolina.
Starlings (aka Black Birds) are very common throughout North Carolina, especially in the Triangle area. Starlings often nest in buildings, and they will fly down into rooftop exhaust vents. The small birds will lay eggs, hatch babies, and the babies will die. This not only results in a bad smell, but the nesting materials can clog vents and pose a fire hazard. While not as “dirty” as pigeons, starling droppings can build up and lead to structural damage, bacteria and parasites.
Here’s what the bird control experts at Bird B Gone recommend for solving North Carolina’s bird problems:
For Wild Birds
The Bird-Hazing System releases a light haze of EcoBird 4.0. Made with Methyl Anthranilate, a non-toxic, EPA approved food-grade ingredient irritates a bird’s mucous membranes, forcing them to leave.
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 rooftops and trees.
