Bird Repellents for Roof Pigeons
Birds like to be perched on high-elevated points for their entitlement of a bird’s view of the
surroundings for survival, and food. Pigeons show a special liking to live closer to human habitations for
easy food among other things. History shows us that pigeons are useful in carrying messages over difficult
territory, the reason why they are accredited with the symbol of peace. They breed very fast and live in
groups of large numbers on rooftops, lawns and back gardens. Apart from their litter, and small feathers
floating about, pigeons are a big nuisance for most of us. Bird repellents like weatherproof spike products

beaks, but for finding food, to carve out a cavity for a nest; or sometimes as a signal for mating. Whatever it
is, they can cause a lot of harm. If there is a woodpecker that has taken a liking for pecking away at your
home, quick action is needed to repel it to avoid more severe damage. A supersonic bird chaser could be useful
as much as some visual bird repellents like scare eye balloons and diverters. A Mylar tape could teach it a
Bird Repellents for Pool Birds
Some birds frequent pool sides for various reasons where repellents like bird gels or spikes
cannot be used. Your best bet under such circumstances is a weatherproof sound deterrent like supersonic bird
repellents that can be programmed to scare away different kinds of birds by emitting distress calls of their
own species or shrieks of their predators.
