At Empire State Pest Control we know that pest birds and unwanted critters cause serious problems. Our commitment to solving these problems sets us apart. That’s why we have been offering pest and bird control services that are humane, eco-friendly, and extremely effective, for the past 15 years.
Birds, pigeons and seagulls not only carry disease but are aggressive about eating human food. In some coastal locations, seagulls can actually harass tourists, hoping to be fed! Crows eat crop seed, and non-migrating geese can also be considered pests.
Methods of bird control include physical deterrents, visual deterrents, sonic devices, chemicals, contraceptives and active barriers, among others. Birds usually adapt quickly to most static bird control devices because the birds adapt after exposure to false threats. The avian control devices that are most successful either physically “block” the birds or “actively modify behavior” using a mild harmless shock.
Physical bird deterrents include products such as steel or plastic spike systems, bird netting, electrified wire systems, non-electrified wire systems, electrified track systems, slope barriers, mechanical spiders, chemical foggers and more. Sharp bird spikes can pierce and impale birds, while “blocking” and “shocking” methods do not hurt birds. These shocking and blocking methods simply repel birds from an area. Many different bird control products are used widely throughout the U.S. and the world with low current shocking wire and strips, netting, and mesh being the most effective bird control techniques.
