A Small English Community Calls for Bird Control Measures

Article Shared From: Braintree and Witham Times

Drastic action is being called for to clean up a street covered in pigeon droppings.

Guithavon Street, in Witham, has been condemned as “filthy” by businesses, shoppers and councillors.

Although Braintree Council cleans the pavements, it insists that pigeon control is the responsibility of those who own and lease property in the road.

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…)

Why Bird Control is Important

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

This content was written by Bird-B-Gone Inc, taken from our Bird Control page on Today’s Facility Manager. Bird-B-Gone, no gimmicks, just products that work!  

It’s important to take a proactive approach when dealing with pest birds. In the long run, it can save you time and money.

There are many reasons to consider deterring birds from your facility. In a nutshell, birds carry and spread disease and bird feces can corrode building materials.

The build-up of bird droppings or nesting materials is not only unsightly, but can host parasites such as bird mites. If birds are allowed to inhabit an area long enough, they will persistently defend it as their territory. (more…)

Council plans to upgrade streets, battle pigeons

Monday, February 27th, 2012

Article Shared From: The North Platte Bulletin

by Dillon Daigger (The North Platte Bulletin) - 2/22/2012

Those pesky pigeons around town will again be the target of eradication, following action by the city council Tuesday.

Pigeons will be targeted by a U.S. Department of Agriculture specialist in upcoming months, at the same time as the city moves to update traffic signals, make improvements downtown and pave U.S. Highway 83 through town.

The council unanimously approved the one-year street plans, 8-0.

And, the council approved a cooperative agreement for pigeon control. City administrator Jim Hawks said the $5,000 fee for the service would be divided three ways — one-third each be paid by the city, Ag Valley Co-Op and the Great Plains Regional Medical Center. (more…)

Pigeon problems: If you kill them, more will come

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Why installing physical bird deterrents is a better bet for effective bird control.

Article Shared From: The Johnson City Press

They’ll be back.

That’s what some are saying about the problematic pigeon population at the Washington County Courthouse in downtown Jonesborough.

In an effort to prevent the birds from roosting at the historic building, Jonesborough’s Historic Zoning Commission voted to remove the louvers from the backside of the building so there would be less places for the birds to gather and bird spikes were also placed on several ledges of the courthouse. Last month, county officials also decided to allow the USDA Wildlife Services Division to administer a toxicant to the birds that will kill them in one to three days.

Laura Simon, field director of urban wildlife for the Humane Society of the United States, says these steps will not rid the building of its pigeon plight.

“The solution they have chosen is absolutely senseless and biologically inappropriate,” Simon said. “If you poison them, more pigeons are going to fly in and use the structure.” (more…)

1986 Department of Defense Video on Airfield Bird Control

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

FRIGHTENING TECHNIQUES FOR AIRFIELD BIRD CONTROL

 

Great video made by the Department of Defense in 1986 entitled Frightening Techniques for Airfield Bird Control“. The video is narrated by Leonard Nimoy and compares different methods commonly used or suggested to control birds near airfields, as their proximity poses a risk for bird-plane strikes. The varying degrees of success of  the different bird deterrents available at the time are discussed including information on Ultrasonic and Sonic Bird control units. It’s likely that this was distributed to military bases to educate the pest control and maintenance departments on how to rid their fields of birds.
