To Clean Up Subway Station, an Unlikely Tool: Bird Calls

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Bird-B-Gone’s Bird Chase Super Sonic unit was chosen to shoo birds from a NY Subway station

Considering the setting, the sound is difficult to place: a song of the wild, evoking, perhaps, a disturbed rooster accompanied by a small chirping bird.

Every few minutes, the noises resume, an unlikely soundtrack at the entrance to Roosevelt Island subway station.

The bird calls come courtesy of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, but the recorded sound is not the latest example of an underground art or music project. It is actually a weapon against trespassing pigeons.

The authority has had a problem with pigeons entering the station, and leaving their feathers, and more unsightly evidence, on and under the walls. The agency had used netting, similar to chicken wire, beneath the ceiling to try to keep the pigeons at bay. (more…)

Controlling Pest Birds In The Food Processing Industry

by Fran Prisco

Pest birds can be a serious health and safety issue if they are not controlled. In food processing plants they can cause extensive damage, health issues and safety problems to workers. Pest birds such as pigeons, starlings and sparrows are very common in and around commercial facilities. These facilities often provide perfect roosting places, shelter for nesting and a wonderful food source. Pest bird feces is acidic and can be quite corrosive to building material and machinery, it can also carry any of 60 known transmittable diseases. Contamination of bird feces, feathers and debris is a big problem in the food processing industry. Health officials can close plants for days to weeks when contamination is found.

Once it is determined that there is an issue with pest birds, plant managers must survey the area to see what the pest birds are doing. In order to implement an effective pest bird control program you must know if the birds are roosting, nesting and if they have a good source of food, water and shelter. Once you know what the birds are doing and where they are; an effective bird control system can be installed.

Bird Proofing Hangars, Parks and Government Buildings

Monday, July 27th, 2009

by Alex A. Kecskes

hangarinstall03Bird proofing government buildings, parks, military bases, and aircraft hangars has been a problem for quite some time.

At the dawn of aviation, the Wright brothers recorded a bird strike that interfered with their early flights. More recently, Hanscom Field in Bedford Massachusetts had roughly 5,000 starlings roosting in their hangar. Clinton Air Force Base in Oklahoma had six hangars with 200-300 house sparrows in each hangar. Lockbourne Air Base in Ohio had 2,000 to 3,000 house sparrows between three hangars with an additional 2,000-3,000 starlings. Wright-Patterson Field had pigeons in their propeller testing area. Selfridge Air Force Base in Michigan suffered from a sparrow invasion. The list goes on and on. Pest birds, it seems, love to hang out in hangers.

Birds entering various openings within aircraft hangars, roost in the I-beams high inside these structures. The Air Force says that the accumulation of droppings, feathers, and other matter poses a big problem. Bird droppings, accumulating on the aluminum skin of airplanes, can corrode the metal and eventually weaken the structure itself. Another concern is that if droppings, feathers, and other matter get into the engines, critically important parts must be cleaned as they could stall an engine during flight. Cleaning an aircraft engine is very expensive and time consuming.
