Best Bird Deterrent for Ponds: Heavy Duty Pond Netting
Best Bird Deterrent for Ponds
Every year thousands of protected migratory birds die in tailings or detention ponds used for industrial waste or filtering. Tailings ponds may contain bitumen, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, naphthenic acids, brine, heavy metals, and ammonia—substantaces that are harmful, even fatal to birds.
Heavy Duty Pond Netting is a humane bird deterrent solution that will solve this problem. Properly installed, pond netting creates a physical barrier that prevents migratory birds from landing in toxic tailing ponds or other water collection sites. The bird netting is stretched over these areas to prevent bird deaths.
Heavy Duty Pond Netting is made from a durable, UV stabilized Dupont® knotted mesh nylon and meant for prolonged use in harsh chemical environments. The bird netting comes in large stock sizes and custom cuts. It’s available in several mesh sizes–from 3/4-inch to 4-inch–to exclude a variety of large and medium sized migrating birds.
To streamline the proper installation of pond netting, bird control experts recommend the use of perimeter cable and accompanying mounting hardware. Bird-B-Gone offers an extensive line of bird netting hardware, which includes turnbuckles, hog rings, accessories, tools, cable crimps and perimeter cable. For best bird deterrent results, the cable should be set up around the area to be netted off. This ensures that there are no gaps for birds to sneak through, and that the netting stays taut and does not slouch. Once installed, the netting is virtually invisible and maintenance free.
