Unlike bird spikes, repellent gels and flashing bird scarers that attempt to startle or annoy birds into leaving, Bird Gard uses the bird’s natural instincts to deter them from boats docks and marinas. This was first demonstrated in the 1950's when zoologists from Pennsylvania State College used tape recordings of distressed starlings to eliminate vast bird roosts infesting trees and barns. Today, Bird Gard uses digital recordings of species specific distress and alarm calls, along with the sounds of their natural predators, broadcast through high fidelity weather-resistant speakers to convince the birds they are under attack. The direction, duration and timing of sounds are controlled by a microprocessor to give the impression there is danger all around. Sophisticated random technology keeps birds from getting used to the sounds.
Birds act like they are hitting a wall when they come in range of Bird Gard, and immediately change direction to find other areas to feed.
Bird Gard boat and marina bird deterrents were developed in collaboration with ornithologists at leading universities and agriculture extension agencies. Numerous studies from Cornell University, University of California at Davis and others have proven Bird Gard's effectiveness at eliminating bird infestations and lowering bird control costs. Through continuous research and development into the nature and habits of nuisance birds, Bird Gard has become the world leader in sonic bird repellent technology, protecting livestock worldwide.
