Airport Bird Control
All airports are vulnerable to the threats, hazards, and nuisances caused by pigeons, gulls, geese, ducks, and other birds.
Let's get this taken care of
What Kind of Airport Bird Control Systems Do You Need?
One must assess the problematic areas of an airport before ordering product. We suggest an initial email or call to us, here, at Bird Barrier or find a local bird specialist. Either way, a plan will not always but most often include a multitude of products when putting together a plan of bird exclusion. Below are the key tools most used in airports with which we’ve been involved.
Exclusion products, such as StealthNet bird netting, keep birds out of airport buildings. Structural barriers that passively deter birds, including netting, are one of the most effective ways of physically repelling birds’ access.
Here are the five product links.
Birds Entering Hangars
· Hangars provide attractive roosting and nesting areas for bird pests such as gulls and pigeons.
· Deny access to safe shelter and roosting spots through large doors with StealthNet (as seen above).
· Yet with doors shut, birds enter through other small gaps in shed-style metal structures. A plane in hangar with sporadic use leaves long gaps of time for a bird to take residence.
· Bird droppings pose serious safety hazards as well as damaging planes and other equipment.
Reducing Birds Around the Tarmac
Optical Gel & Spikes
· To make any bird control system optimally effective and reduce the risk of bird strikes, airports need to make the overall airport property less attractive to birds.
· Reducing found food and water helps stave off bird visits.
· If watery area such as marshlands are unavoidable, one must address larger birds such as geese, ducks and gulls.
· Shelter near runways should include structural barriers, bird birth control, audio, visual, and electrical shock deterrents which will keep birds from forming a bond to your structure.
Architectural Branding Unaffected
Bird Shock Hides from Above & Below
· When it comes to your airport’s brand, birds are your number one living enemy.
· Your most decorated areas are suppose to be viewed by your customers which not only see your structure but often stand below it. Let’s keep these areas bird-free.
· Bird-Shock Flex-Track is built to be hand-trimmed and weave in and out of every detail of your basic structure to high-detail façades.
· Bird-Shock’s low-profile rubber tracking has two lines of stainless steel woven strips. When crossed with a bird’s foot, the stainless lines deliver a safe tingling sensation which moves them away immediately.
· Shown above is Bird-Shock running along this airport’s terminal metal beams. This rubber track system can mount to nearly anything and be powered by normal 115v or solar.
Ending Future Flock Visits
· OvoControl is a ready-to-use bait that controls the reproduction of treated birds, causing the population to decline. This effective and humane technology is especially useful for managing pigeon flocks in larger areas without having to resort to poisons and the associated risks.
· OvoControl is a bird attractor. To apply such a system requires a professional bird control tech so as to not inadvertently attract additional birds rather than eliminating flocks.
The Marsh and Wetlands Species
Audio and Visual Deterrents
· Visual deterrents, such as representations of fallen geese and/or other natural predators, frighten birds away. These methods will be most effective in areas of airport property that are newly affected by birds. You must act quickly after they arrive in order for this type of deterrent to be effective.
· There are two types of audio repellents that are effective in managing birds near airport structures. The first mimics actual bird distress calls or make frightening noises. Devices broadcast species specific distress cries that scare flocks away. The second type of audio repellent drives birds from airport property by making loud, irritating noises that annoy or frighten the flock.
