Today was the second day of application of the bird repellant. There was a more pronounced effect on the birds today compared to yesterday. No larger bodied birds were spotted today, meaning no pigeons or gulls were found on the property today. We still had small finches or sparrows on the south side of the building but not nearly as many as yesterday. Of the remaining birds all but a handful were more willing to leave the property when the fog was applied. Also the few hold outs there were noticeably more uncomfortable from the foggingGreg B. from Frozen Bakery
No other type of bird control would have been able to do this job. Be sure to view our full line of bird repellent products today!
The above photo now shows pretty colors where birds were creating a health hazard and white disease infested mess with their bird droppings. After 1-3 months into the program, the active birds left the area (and took their mess with them). Some birds can withstand discomfort on a temporary basis but as vapor-time goes on, they start leaving the area. (Bird droppings are not only a white stinky mess but they can carry over 42 diseases [or bugs] which is a health hazard.)
Some restaurants with outdoor seating have hundreds of pigeons, crows, blackbirds, starlings, and other birds which infest the roof tops, grounds, and railings where food is prepared and served. Because of the sheer size of each of these areas, this is a major challenge, especially outdoors.
Placement of a BirdBuffer® at the upwind side of the roof top (or under eves) repels birds with a grape-scented vapor over the top of the area where birds fly, causing them to leave the area.
Repel birds with an automated BirdBuffer®. The BirdBuffer® machines produce a constant, virtually invisible, dry-vapor with Avian Control or EcoBird 4.0 fluid. Effective with pigeons, crows, blackbirds, starlings, seagulls and more – it does not harm them, just keeps them away.
We are happy to report that after having the BirdBuffer® System operational for several months, we have eliminated the roosting 100% and have gotten rid of the last 10% of birds. We passed our Food Safety Inspection. The Primus Lab inspector reported, “All areas of the facility are protected from the presence of birds with a very effective system that repels them.” (February 28, 2006)
A copy of our certification is below.
Now after several months of using this system, we are able to turn down the output (lower consumption of fluid) to maintain enough haze to warn new birds that might “test” the food plant, that there is no “free lunch here.” Mr. Crawford of BirdBuffer, LLC has been in touch with us and kept us informed of any new settings that we should adjust on the equipment. Their support has been consistent with the quality of their product.
This system is operational during work hours with over 450 employees, successfully. The birds have not habituated to this system either. The bird population stays away by the hundreds. This included blackbirds, pigeons, doves, and other local birds that were previous pests in our food packing plant. A side benefit is the packing area has a pleasant grape odor throughout the complex.
Thank you for your system and support. This system works.
