The hotel’s unwanted guests arrived in the fall, coming and going at all hours, ignoring efforts to get rid of them — and leaving something behind on the roof and sidewalk below.

“I was hoping they’d at least pay the rent,” said Steve Hilton, general manager of Embassy Suites. “I’ve talked to a few people … and we’re not sure if they migrated from another part of Lincoln.”

The pigeons roosting on his roof by day could be the same birds spending their nights beneath the Rosa Parks Way bridge, directly above the parking lot of the Cornhusker Place treatment center.

Two New Patents Awarded for Bird-B-Gone’s Bird Jolt Flat Track System

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

 

Mission Viejo CA – The United States Patent office has recently awarded two new patents to Bird-B-Gone, Inc. on the Bird Jolt Flat Track™ bird deterrent system.

Bird Jolt Flat Track is a low profile electric track system that produces a mild electric jolt when birds land on its surface.

Bird Jolt Flat Track is the only electric track bird deterrent system with a patented anti-arcing and glue trough design.

The two new patents were awarded for the systems’ glue troughs; US 8015747 & US 8020340.

Patented glue troughs along the base of the Bird Jolt Flat Track system raise and insulate the threads that secure the conductors. This design prevents water from creating a conductive channel underneath the track by wicking up the threads and shorting out the track. The glue troughs also make for better adhesion.

Combined with the anti-arcing design, the two new patents make Bird Jolt Flat Track the ultimate choice in safety and effectiveness.
