BirdBuffer® products control all flying birds in open spaces by emitting a lighter than air, invisible vapor created from tested, proven, EPA registered liquid bird repellent. These fluids contain an active ingredient called methyl anthranilate (MA). MA is concentrated grape skin extract. It is a food flavoring used in many products, including bubble gum and candies. MA is US FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) approved for many uses, including bird control.
BirdBuffer® Q-4 and TD-II systems are electrically controlled, automated machines, programmed to vaporize MA and keep fresh vapor in the air at pre-set intervals. They are strategically placed in zones where birds are actively flying. The machines emit micronized vapor particles at up to 60 mph, allowing protective coverage over large areas, using a very small amount of fluid.
Tiny particles of vapor (less than 10 microns) penetrate the flying bird’s mucus membranes. Vapor penetration causes a safe, yet irritating response in birds’ trigeminal nerves. This process acts as a natural, eco-friendly repellent, causing birds to fly away and relocate. When birds try to return, they breathe the irritant and repeatedly fly away. Birds soon remember there’s an irritant in the area and will stay away as long as the vapor is in the air. This is the key element in keeping birds away from target areas and makes it possible to have better bird control than other forms and methods.
