Optical Gel™

Optical Gel™

Welcome to Dawn of Modern Bird Control

Optical Gel is a multi-sensory bird repellent that deters birds using sight, smell and touch.

SIGHT · Dishes appear to be extremely detrimental to their safety (akin to fire or smoke) and avoid immediately.

SMELL · They can't stand the citronella and peppermint oil smell which to us is pleasant.

TOUCH · They avoid sticky material (in the unlikely event they touch it).


Simply remove covers from dishes and glue, magnetically stick or zip-tie to the affected area.

  • Where to Use: ledges, signs, balconies, soffits, beams, skylights, signs, roofs, HVAC equipment, enclosed spaces, etc.
  • Target Bird: All species
  • Bird Pressure: Light, Medium & Heavy
  • Material: Citronella, peppermint oil, agar, beeswax
  • Installation: Dishes are glued to the surface, magnetically affixed to metal or zip-tied to a tubular or unusually-shaped base.
  • Installation Level: Easy
  • Very Discreet: Dishes are only 2-1/2 in. diameter and 1/4 in. tall
  • How it Works: Deters birds by using sight, smell and touch. Birds see fire or smoke, although there isn't any. They dislike the scent of peppermint oil. The gel is sticky if they do touch it.
  • Safe for the environment: made of all-green ingredients
  • Longevity: dishes are effective for 2 - 4 years.

    $95.00 - $750.00
    Optical Gel

    The easiest bio-tech solution you'll ever install.

    It's natural and safe for us, and yes...even for the birds. But they HATE IT!

    Unmatched Performance When Combined in Three Key Areas

    1. INVISIBLE · Bird control products that cannot be seen once installed is a goal we all desire. From below, Optical Gel is out of sight.

    2. A CINCH · Undetectability often means complexity in installation. Optical Gel does not trade this off. It's easy to install. Dare we say almost fun. Choose between glued (this version), magnetic or zip-tied options to make sure it stays put.

    3. JAW-DROPPINGINGLY EFFECTIVE · And finally, the modernity of this barrier is how well it works. Watching it function in real-time is quite stunning. Optical Gel not only ushers birds off of whatever they might land but denies and seemingly repulses them before they do. Watch a one minute of video of highlights or a four-minute detailed video here.
