Bird Control Deterrents & Exclusion Systems
Wild Goose Chase uses a variety of bird control exclusion and deterrent solutions to effectively deter pest birds from various property types, including commercial offices, industrial warehouses, retail shopping centers, and school facilities to name a few. The methods we use are site specific and we base our recommendations on a variety of observations and facts, including but not limited to geographic location, food sources, and building structures.
The AVIX Autonomic is a fully automated bird repelling system, providing continuous bird deterrence with the use of a specialized laser keeping birds away 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Learn more >
Specially designed lasers are used at pre-dawn or dusk to invoke a fright response. When properly used they provide a safe and humane method for scaring nuisance birds from a property without causing any harm to the animal or the environment. CAUTION: This bird control technique requires special training and certification in several areas due the potential harm to vehicle, human and air traffic! All Wild Goose Chase handlers have been properly trained in the use of this device. Learn more >
BirdSlide is used on ledges, edges, almost anywhere there is a flat, narrow ledge for birds to perch on. It is an effective deterrent where there is heavy pressure from nesting. This is a good application where other products like netting may be visually unacceptable. The BirdSlide system completely protects the ledge against all bird species because birds cannot get a grip and slide right off the ledge. The product comes in gray or beige, but can be painted to match any color.
Netting is the strongest and most versatile bird exclusion system in the world. This system denies pest bird’s access to any architectural configuration, including courtyards, roof tops, overhangs, parking garages, etc. One of the most important aspects of using bird netting successfully is to find every opening where birds are entering and leaving the structure. The netting needs to enclose or block off each avenue used for access by the birds. It is also important that the bird netting be kept from surroundings that could damage it.
The term "bird spikes" sounds harsh and harmful but this is a humane and highly effective bird deterrent. The product is made of pre-formed spike strips that have wires attached to a base which can be glued or screwed in place. The strips are designed so that they do not collect debris and are virtually invisible from normal viewing distances. They can be installed on nearly any architectural configuration. Birds that normally roost, land or nest on the area where the bird spikes are installed will not be harmed, because as birds approach the area they see there is no solid place to land and do not actually come in contact with the spike.
Birdwire is a spring-tensioned wire system designed to create an unstable landing area that is widely used throughout the U.S. because it is very low-profile. This is an excellent and effective solution for bird control when it is critical not to detract from the visual appearance of a building or structure. Bird wire is especially designed for larger birds like seagulls, pigeons and crows when they are not present in large numbers. The posts and spring-tension bird wire is permanently installed and is very effective if correctly implemented for the proper application. It also carries GSA approval for historic buildings.
Custom Metal Work & Carpentry
We have an in-house machine shop and union carpenter on staff that has the ability to build custom structural deterrents for areas such as planter boxes, rooftops and other places where Canada geese like to loaf or nest.
Grid Systems are an effective bird deterrent used to protect flat rooftops and large open spaces from gulls and other soaring birds. By suspending a series of lines above the surface area in the form of a grid, an uncomfortable landing zone for soaring birds is created, which teaches them to find new areas to roost and nest. Grids sections are custom designed based on the type of desired species to control and roof area.
Used as a deterrent method to prevent perching and loafing on ledges and other surfaces. This system produces a harmless but noticeable electric pulse that deters nuisance birds from those areas. All surfaces are cleaned and prepped prior to installation. Electric track is adhered using a specific glue bond.
Thin, stainless steel rods rotate in the breeze and wave menacingly, interfering with birds as they attempt to land deterring gulls, pigeons, and other large birds, from landing in open spaces such as flat roofs or air conditioning units, as well as on street lights and other hard-to-protect areas. It is inconspicuous from short distances and practically invisible from 50 feet or more. Its unobtrusive design allows for use in even high visibility areas like shopping/walking promenades and parking lots.
Vent guards stop persistent pest birds from living in drain pipes, exhaust vents, and other open areas that can be covered with a custom sized vent guard.
Stainless steel or galvanized wire mesh is ideal for keeping out nuisance birds, the welded wire mesh can be cut to fit, molded into shapes and installed over, under or around all types of objects, gaps, openings and more.
100% non-toxic, environmentally safe blend of coarse stainless steel and poly fibers form a highly resilient and impenetrable barrier against nuisance birds. Used in nesting cavities on building structures.
