The Equality State has several persistent and growing pest bird problems. In Cheyenne, geese and ducks on city-owned land have become a nuisance. Seems too many people are feeding birds and that this normally migratory bird population is no longer migratory. This has resulted in an ever-growing bird population, particularly at Holliday Park, Lions Park and the airport.
Bird droppings in parks, pic-nick areas, and golf course greens have created a smelly mess that can lead to health problems for golfers and families. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, several pathogens found in goose feces can be transmitted to humans. The birds are protected by state and federal law, so a permit is required for anything that could harm geese or their eggs.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department recently cautioned businesses who keep domestic fowl should keep wild birds away from their flocks. The warnings are underscored by the recent discovery of a goose in Cheyenne that recently tested positive for the H5N2 virus. The highly pathogenic virus can spread quickly and be lethal to geese, ducks, chickens and other fowl. Wyoming is now among the states where a strain of bird flu has turned up in recent months.
Here’s what the bird control experts at Bird B Gone recommend to solve Wyoming’s bird problems:
For Geese and Ducks
The Bird-Hazing System releases a light haze of methyl anthranilate, a non-toxic, EPA approved food-grade ingredient that irritates a bird’s mucous membranes. The repellent effect is only temporary and will not injure birds.
For Wild Birds
Bird Netting seals out wild birds from feedlots and water bins and storage areas. The inexpensive netting comes in bulk rolls or small sizes. It’s lightweight and virtually invisible. Easy to handle and install, the netting is available in three mesh sizes to exclude all birds.
