Plastic Bird Spikes to Deter Birds from Signs

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

get rid of birds with plastic bird spikesSigns are important to businesses and communities. We look at them every day so it’s important that signs represent the business or town in a clean and professional manner. Larger birds, like pigeons, seagulls and crows land in areas where they are not wanted, creating a mess and an unsanitary environment. Signs are no exception; birds will sit and poop on sings, ruining the visual appeal. Keep birds off signs with polycarbonate bird spikes. This will help you avoid unnecessary costs and potential health and legal issues. Plastic bird spikes work well to keep birds away by creating an uneven surface, making it impossible for birds to land in the treated area. The spikes will not harm the birds.

Polycarbonate bird spikes work on flat or curved signs. Choose from seven colors: clear, white, tan, grey, brown, black and brick red. Plastic spikes are available in different spike widths: 3”, 5” and 7” to cover different ledge and surface widths. Since the spikes come pre-assembled in two foot strips with pre-drilled holes along the base, installation is fast and easy – cutting time to install in half. Plastic spikes can be glued or screwed to most surfaces.

Bird-B-Gone polycarbonate spikes are manufactured in the USA and carry a five year guarantee.

Deter Birds from Open Spaces with Plastic Bird Netting

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

deter birds with plastic nettingEaves and open spaces like barns, beams, overhangs and other areas in or on structures are great for birds to a build nest. Certain species, like Barn Swallows, will come back to the same place year after year to nest; therefore, if they nested on your property in previous years, there is a good chance they will be back. It is best to deter birds before they arrive.

Whether using preventative methods or treating a current bird problem, plastic bird netting is best for 100% exclusivity. Plastic bird netting keeps birds away from treated areas by creating a physical barrier between the structure and the birds. Plastic bird netting is a lightweight mesh net used to keep birds from nesting in unwanted areas. It is a very low cost solution to humanely get rid of birds.

Plastic bird netting is made of U.V. protected polypropylene. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes: ¾”, ½” and ¼”. It is also available in several cut sizes to fit different size treatment areas. Ultra net is a lightweight plastic mesh that is meant for temporary use.

To install netting to keep birds out of eaves or open spaces, the ultra-net clips can be used. Otherwise a staple gun can be used to secure the netting around the perimeter. When the birds realize they cannot access the area, they will move on to another location. Once the birds are gone you can remove the netting.

Keep Birds Away with Repeller 360°™

Friday, June 14th, 2013

get rid of birdsLarge Birds, like crows, seagulls, pigeons, raptors and cormorants, enjoy landing and perching in inconvenient places. These pest birds create a mess and sometimes cause damage and health issues by pooping. Some of these areas are unique either because of the small surface area or it’s an area with foot traffic, so unique solutions are required to get rid of birds in these areas.

The Repeller 360° is perfect bird deterrent for boats, docks, canvas, light posts, air conditioning units, signs, rooftops and many other areas that are small in diameter, made of unique materials or on slanted areas.

Need to Keep Birds Out of Rafters? Bird Netting to the Rescue

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

keep birds off with bird nettingBirds love to sit and nest in high places that protect them from predators and weather. This means that places with open ceilings with beams and rafters, like warehouses or manufacturing facilities, are perfect for birds in search of a nesting area.

Birds will sit on beams, pooping and preening, which causes a huge mess but the acidic droppings can erode building materials. Bird droppings also carry up to 60 transmittable diseases and when dried can blow around in dust form and be inhaled by humans. Nesting also creates a mess and a hazard. Workers who have to climb in the rafters, to change lights for example, are at risk of being injured or picking up diseases. Additionally, droppings fall on equipment and product or anything produced in the open area facility, potentially damaging or ruining the expensive equipment and product.

This is a serious problem that must be addressed. The best way to keep birds out is to create a barrier that fully excludes birds from being able to enter the area altogether. Bird Netting is the perfect solution for getting rid of birds in your rafters. The best, most efficient and effective bird netting is the Bird Net 2000™, which provides 100% bird exclusion and is the #1 bird net specified by architects and government agencies. Depending on the size of your affected area, there are multiple options for bird netting

Bird netting requires professional installation and installation hardware. If you do not have an installer, we can connect you with authorized installers in your area to ensure your bird netting is properly installed and your bird problems are solved.

Goose Repellent: Get rid of geese

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

Goose Repellent Often found on large inland bodies of water–like lakes, reservoirs, large ponds, and on seashores and rivers–Canada Geese are grazers and feed in shallow water, pastures and arable land. Without goose repellents, these birds are most likely to return to the area they were born. These geese leave behind an abundance of droppings, which can be a health hazard, and feathers. Canada Geese graze relentlessly, killing grass in areas where they reside and leaving piles of unsightly poop. Keep these birds away from with bird control products.

There are several humane bird solutions to get rid of geese. One method of deterring Canada Geese is by removing their food source. This can be done with Migrant Goose Repellant is a non-toxic, food grade liquid product that is used to deter geese from common grazing areas, like lawns and shrubs. Migrant Goose Repellant is made from a non-toxic grape extract that when ingested causes an irritation to the mucous membranes and trigeminal nerves resulting in the geese avoiding the treated area. Disrupting their habitat by removing any reeds will also discourage geese from nesting in grassy areas.

Scare tactics such as sound bird deterrents are also effective in goose control. Sonic Shield is a motion activated device that replicates a vicious dog barking sound when triggered. The sensor reaches a distance of about 30 feet to the front and 20 feet side to side. This is an inexpensive solution to bird control. The Goose-B-Gone Super Sonic another sound bird deterrent. It is more costly than the Sonic Shield but reaches a much greater distance and is very effective. It plays goose distress calls and predator sounds to scare geese away from property(or any area within a one acre radius).

The scarecrow is another effective motion activated scare tactic that sprays water from a sprinkler system every time it is triggered by motion. The scarecrow is used for lawns, docks, pools and other areas.  Coyote decoys are another inexpensive solution to getting rid of geese. These decoys can be placed in the nearby area and keep geese away since coyote feed on them.
Most goose control products are easy to install, however, if you have neither the time nor resources to install the goose deterrent products, there are wildlife and pest control professionals that offer humane capture and release services.

Get rid of the geese and get back to lush green grass!

FDA Find Bugs, Bird at Affiliate of Meningitis Pharmacy

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

(Reuters) – U.S. health inspectors found bugs, a flying bird and other unsterile conditions at Ameridose LLC, an affiliate of the Massachusetts compounding pharmacy at the heart of the deadly meningitis outbreak.

Westborough, Massachusetts-based Ameridose was closed on October 10 to allow state and federal investigators to inspect its facilities. On Monday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration released the results of its investigation.

The agency’s report details a list of quality control failures at Ameridose, including a failure to test the potency of its products, a failure to properly classify patient complaints and the use of “vague, canned language” when describing negative patient reactions to its drugs.

The company, an affiliate of the New England Compounding Center, said it is in the process of preparing a full response to the FDA.

“Ameridose’s history shows clearly that we have not had any instance of contaminated products over the course of the past six years, which covers the manufacture and shipment of 70 million units of product,” the company said in a statement. “Ameridose is committed to addressing all observations in order to enhance our existing systems.”

The investigation of Ameridose follows the closure of the NECC, which distributed thousands of vials of a steroid linked to an outbreak of fungal meningitis that has hit 19 states and claimed 32 lives.

Inspectors found that Ameridose failed to investigate customer complaints related to drug potency, under-filled products and syringe volumes. It also failed to classify “patient response” complaints as “adverse events.”

Several such complains referred to the drug oxytocin, used to induce labor in childbirth. One referred to “fetal distress and hyper stimulated uterus.” Another customer called to report an increase in post-partum hemorrhaging. Another reported that a patient had shortness of breath and that “the throat was closing.”

A complaint related to the painkiller fentanyl noted that the patient was “oversedated” and “unresponsive.” Another patient given the blood-thinner heparin experienced a “life-threatening” negative reaction.

Inspectors said buildings used to make, process, pack and hold the drugs were not maintained in a good state of repair. The firm failed to perform a microbiological assessment after “penetrating leaks” were found in a building and water dripping above the clean room.

“During the inspection we observed totes placed in the location of the penetrating leaks containing water,” the inspection report noted. “There is no documented evidence that the leaks were permanently corrected.”

Walls were cracked, corroded and covered with what appeared to be adhesive material in a room where sterile drugs are prepared, the report noted.

Equipment and utensils were not cleaned or sanitized at appropriate intervals to prevent contamination that could alter the safety, identity, quality or purity of the drugs, according to the report.

Certain metal surfaces “were observed to contain what appeared to be brownish structures, atypical in shape,” the report noted.

Moreover, the buildings used “are not free of infestation by rodents, birds, insects and other vermin,” the report said.

Specifically, insects were located in an area where finished sterile product is packaged and stored. The insects were also located within three to 10 feet of the controlled area where sterile products are manufactured.

At least one bird was observed flying in an area where sterile finished product is packaged and stored.

On Friday, Ameridose, which has the same owners as NECC, said it would lay off about 90 percent of its work force. About 650 employees at Ameridose will be affected, as well as 140 employees at Medical Sales Management, a company that provides sales, technology and human resources support to Ameridose.

Tragic Plane Crash Blamed on Bird Strike

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Bird strikes at airports are not uncommon and can end in tragedy. The Telegraph recently reported a plane crash in Napal that took the lives of 19 people when a vulture flew into one of the engines as the plane was taking off. Tragedies like these underscore the importance of effective bird control.

Civil Aviation Authority officials noted that the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing after the plane’s front engine had been hit by a bird and ceased to function. After trying to start a second engine, the damaged engine burst into flames. When the pilot attempted to land in the nearby Monahara River (to snuff out the flames), the plane crashed into a soccer fi eld on the riverbank and was engulfed in thick, black flames. The plane crashed just 500 meters from the airport. Luckily no one was on the ground in the plane’s path. It took firefighters over 40 minutes to extinguish the flames.

It was later determined that the bird was not sucked into the engine, but hit the right side propeller. A local engineer noted that 90 percent of bird strikes occur during ta keoff. Bird collisions can result in aircraft damage, especially if the bird is large and is ingested into a jet engine. In this case, a bird will damage a fan blade in the engine, which causes adjacent blades to displace and impact all the blades in the engine. Without effective bird control measures, airports are literally at the mercy of pest birds. 

Keeping Aircraft Hangars Bird Free With Bird Netting

Since most aircraft hangars are wide open during operating hours, birds can easily flock around door openings, overhangs, eaves, canopies, support beams and other lofty areas. Birds attracted to hangars include European starlings, house sparrows and pigeons. Once they begin to nest inside, their droppings and nesting materials can easily fall onto aircraft engines, maintenance  and testing areas, and parts storage bays. Parts contaminated with bird debris can fail during testing and even cause mishaps during flight. Workers can also slip and fall on bird droppings.

One popular bird deterrent currently used to keep birds out of aircraft hangars is Heavy Duty Bird Netting.  Correctly installed by Authorized Bird Control Installers, bird netting effectively prevents birds from accessing sensitive areas.  Heavy duty bird netting comes in a variety of mesh sizes. To block out pigeons or seagulls, consider using 1-1/8- to 2-inch mesh size netting. To seal out smaller birds like sparrows, a 3/4-inch mesh netting is recommended.

Bird control experts will tell you that it’s important to specify high quality netting. The best heavy duty netting is made of high-strength polyethylene. One manufacturer offers netting that has a burst strength of up to 40 pounds. It meets ISO 1806 and 9001 protocols, is UV stabilized, flame resistant and rot- and water-proof. The best netting will have a 250-degree Fahrenheit melting point and will also remain intact in “sub-zero” temperatures. This netting is black, comes with a 10-year guarantee and is virtually invisible when properly installed.

Installing heavy duty netting in aircraft hangars should be done properly by Authorized Bird Control Installers. Such installations typically require thousands of square feet of netting. For example, to properly install the netting horizontally across an entire hangar ceiling, special boom lifts and power gear are required. Improperly installed netting can droop and sag, allowing birds to enter through spaces.

Heavy Duty Pond Netting for Wetland Areas

Properly installed, Heavy Duty Pond Netting creates a physical barrier that prevents migratory birds from landing in ponds or other water areas around aviation facilities. The netting is made from a durable, UV-stabilized Dupont® knotted mesh nylon and designed for prolonged use in harsh environments. The netting comes in large stock sizes and custom cuts. Mesh sizes vary from 3/4” to 4” to exclude a variety of large and medium sized migrating birds.

Avian Control™ Bird Repellent

Ideal for repelling birds from large expansive areas like airports, Avian Control™ Bird Repellent is a non-toxic solution that discourages geese, gulls ducks starlings and other birds from gathering and grazing.  Avian Control’s unique patent pending formula irritates the mucous membranes of birds, yet it’s harmless to birds, pets and people (all ingredients are considered “Generally Regarded As Safe” by the FDA). It lasts up to three times longer than other goose deterrents. The repellent can be sprayed and is highly economical when fogged (fogging uses just 12 to 16 ounces per acre). Avian Control™ should be applied by a licensed pest control operator.

For additional advice on how to prevent bird strikes at your airport, consult an expert like the folks at Bird-B-Gone.

Why You Need Commercial Grade Bird Spikes for Your Business

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Written By: Alex Kecskes

Running a commercial business in these tough economic times can be a real challenge. Profit margins are slim, and the last thing you need is repair and maintenance costs to go up. But that can happen if you don’t have a bird control strategy. One that keeps pest birds out of signs, rooftop AC units, rain gutters and other elevated areas.

Birds nesting in your signage, for example, can cause electrical shorts and, in some cases, fires. Bird nests, feathers and related debris can also choke up exhaust fans and AC compressors. When birds build nests in your rain gutters during the summer, winter rains will produce overflows that can damage roofs.

Bird Spikes are an effective way to prevent birds from landing or roosting on your business. There are, however, many different varieties of bird spikes available in today’s market. Some are better suited for commercial businesses than others, as some bird spikes sold online are flimsy, require assembly and are not guaranteed.  (more…)

When and Where to use Bird Spikes

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Written By: Meredith Walako/ Bird-B-Gone, Inc. 5-25-12

Bird Spikes, they were invented in the 1940′s and have since become a staple tool in bird control. While they’re not quite a household name or known product, many professionals have familiarized themselves with the concept. And though there have been several advancements in bird deterrents since, such as automatic remote hazing units and electric track systems, Bird Spikes still play an important role in deterring birds. It’s a simple product with very effective results, as long as they are used for what they are designed for.

Bird Spikes are a physical bird deterrent used to prevent birds from landing in unwanted areas. The Spikes are not sharp, and not designed to harm birds. They simply create an uneven landing space that large birds cannot land on. Bird-B-Gone is the only bird control company that manufactures their bird spikes in the USA, ensuring they meet the highest standard of quality in the industry.

Bird Spikes, just like any other wildlife, pest or bird control product are designed for specific situations and species. Birds are smart and adaptable -  finding the right product that fits your scenario is key in successful pest bird exclusion. The species of bird, the area they are causing a problem and whether or not the birds are nesting will dictate whether they are a viable option. In other words, Bird Spikes are not 100% effective everywhere they are installed, there are many pest bird scenarios that require a completely different solution. (more…)
