Optical Gel™

Optical Gel™

This multi-sensory bird repellent deters birds using sight, smell and touch. Birds see fire or smoke, although there isn't any. They smell peppermint oil, which they hate. The Gel is sticky of the birds do touch it. It's easy to install, simply remove covers from dishes and affix dishes to dry surfaces with silicone or other removable adhesive.

  • 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.
