Audible Bird Scarers. Also known as noise deterrents. These do what they say on the tin, and produce a sound that scares birds away via loudspeaker.
Most bird scarers use distress or bird of prey calls.
As a method of reducing overall flock size they have been proven to be very effective. However, they work best as part of a rounded approach, where other physical bird deterrents are being used as well (such as netting, mesh, wire or spikes). Additionally, birds can wise up to unchanging control methods, and so it’s critical to manage these over time.
Many bird species have a specific distress call – used only when they are in real danger. This includes pigeons and seagulls. Unlike loud noises, birds have a biological aversion to distress (and predator bird) calls, and will likely leave the source area completely…rather than retreating to a nearby location.
*Ultrasonic deterrents are not proven to work, nor are plastic owls (and the like).
The approach that works for some, may not work for others. At BPUK Environment we have a choice of audible bird scarers, which we can use to create a bird control system adapted specially for your business.
