Bird Barrier provides Seavers Beavers with a solution for the toughest infestation

Micah Seavers knows good advice when he hears it. So when his wife suggested he quit spending so much money on his “wildlife hobbies,” he did just that. He opened Seavers Beavers and More Nuisance Wildlife Removal, based in Water Valley, Ky., and began earning money doing what he loves. More great advice came a few years later, when a fellow wildlife professional suggested Seavers consider working with Bird Barrier and expand into the bird management market. Now, three years after forming a relationship with Bird Barrier, his business is booming.

Recently, Seavers’ bird management skills were put to the test when he landed his largest bird job to date — a $20,000 elementary school account that was overrun by European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris). The problem was so bad, the health department wouldn’t let the school open until the birds were eradicated. “The feces, dead birds and broken eggs were everywhere,” Seavers recounts. “They had outside eating areas that the kids couldn’t even sit at — you couldn’t walk into the school without walking in bird mess.” Because of the school’s beautiful architecture, Seavers wanted something that would look clean on the columns and blend in with the structures. His next step was simple. He took some photos of the project and sent them to Ray Olschewski, his rep at Bird Barrier. Olschewski suggested using Bird-Shock Flex-Track, an electrified track that conforms to any architectural configuration and delivers an intermittent shock when touched.

“Ray walked us through the installation process step-by-step to make sure I was confident in what I was doing,” Seavers explains. With the help of Olschewski and the team at Bird Barrier, Seavers and his coworker worked from sunup to sundown to complete the job in just under a week. To the joy of the students and teachers (or perhaps to their dismay), the school was able to open on time.

A pillar at the elementary school before and after Seavers’ team installed Bird-Shock Flex-Track.

“The only callback I’ve received was a thank-you from the principal and teachers,” says Seavers. “They’re just ecstatic.”
