The Toronto’s Bathurst Subway Station was once home to dozens of annoying pigeons. Attracted by the scent of freshly baked goods inside, and by customers who couldn’t resist feeding them crumbs and snacks, the birds would leave droppings everywhere, including on peoples’ hats and parkas. The bird droppings not only had the potential for carrying any of 60 known diseases, but also created dangerous slip-and-fall hazards inside the station. The good news is that the pigeons have left the station, thanks to a sonic bird control device that keeps them outside on telephone poles and trees.
Using Sound to Deter Birds
The device used to successfully get rid of pigeons is known as the Bird Chase Super Sonic made by a U.S.-based company called Bird-B-Gone. An ideal all-in-one bird deterrent, the device broadcasts pre-recorded distress and predator calls of over 22 species of birds, including pigeons, crows, gulls, starlings, woodpeckers and grackles. It can be set to deter a specific bird or switched to its "general" setting to deter multiple bird species. This way, it effectively protects any venue from today’s most common bird problems. The distress and predator calls are repeated every ten minutes to keep birds away. And the device can be programmed to turn on or off at night. There’s also a volume control that allows the sound output to be adjusted—anywhere from 65-105 decibels.
Exploiting a Bird’s Natural Abilities and Fears
Birds may have small brains but they have an acute instinct to avoid even the slightest threat. The Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic fully exploits a bird’s natural alertness and sensitive hearing. A bird’s hearing range is similar to a human’s, which is why most ultrasonic bird deterrents are ineffective, since they produce sounds above a bird’s hearing range. In addition, the sounds emitted by the Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic resemble normal birdcalls to the human ear, so they won’t bother pets or people.
Designed to Deter Pest Birds from Large Spaces
Scientifically designed to deter birds from large spaces, the Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic is the ideal pest bird deterrent for large commercial and municipal areas. It’s ruggedly designed for outdoor use and constructed of UV-protected materials to ensure a long life outdoors. It’s a bird control solution that’s both effective and humane.
Solar Powered and Sustainable
The Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic is now available in a solar powered model. It’s more efficient during daylight and features rechargeable batteries for convenient nighttime operation. A handy LCD panel displays operating status and settings at a glance. The device comes with one internal speaker that easily covers up to an acre of property. To ensure customer satisfaction, the Solar Bird Chase Super Sonic comes with a 30-day money back guarantee if unsatisfied with results. The device also comes with a 1-year manufacturers warranty on parts.
