When nuisance birds perch, loaf or nest on buildings, billboards and bridges, their presence can be more than just an eyesore; their waste poses threats to both structures and human health.
Common deterrents like steel spikes, chemical repellants and netting can be effective, but usually only in the short term. Moreover, quick fixes are often unsightly and sometimes inhumane and ecologically unfriendly.
Flock Off is a humane, environmentally safe and permanent bird deterrent solution. The intelligently designed product uses electromagnetic signals to disrupt birds’ internal navigation systems and prevent them from landing on protected structures.
How Flock Off Works
Birds have superior navigation and migration abilities that are guided by complex biological processes. One of the processes birds use to migrate is magnetic sensing, which works like an internal GPS or compass.
Flock Off disrupts a bird’s magnetic sensing abilities by emitting an electromagnetic field at 120 hertz. The force field – which can only be sensed by birds and is invisible to humans – gives birds a sense of vertigo and encourages them to fly away from the protected location without landing. Disorientation is temporary and causes no long-term damage to birds’ navigational abilities.
Because electromagnetic interference works for most bird species, Flock Off is easily customizable and can be used in a wide variety of situations and applications. A University of Arizona Cooperative Extension study found that pigeon loafing was significantly reduced when the device was powered on.
Flock Off is:
- Environmentally friendly
- Safe for use around humans, pets and wildlife
- Visually unobtrusive
- Effective 24/7
