Repel Western Scrub-Jays

The Western scrub-jay is common throughout the west and mid-western United States. Easily recognizable due to their blue and gray-brown coloration, scrub-jays are distinguished from the blue jay and Steller’s jay because of their round, crest-less head. Scrub-jays are common fixtures in residential areas, but can frequently be found feeding in nut and fruit orchards, corn fields, and in feedlots.

Blue Jay


Blue jays are common throughout most of central and eastern United States and southern Canada. These pest birds are well known for their intelligence, noisy calls and perky crests.  Blue jays can be found in forests, woodlots, city parks, as well as in nut and fruit orchards where they can feed on seeds or nuts.

Effective Jay Repellent

If your crops have been damaged by Western scrub-jays or Blue jays, a Bird Gard unit can start protecting your vineyard, orchard, or other crops from these nuisance birds today. Bird Gard achieves exceptional protection from birds by offering complete coverage of an area where Western scrub-jays or Blue jays are present. Areas not fully protected by Bird Gard will allow these birds to begin feeding at the fringes of the sound coverage. The complete coverage provided by Bird Gard forces Western scrub-jays and Blue jays to leave your vineyard, orchard, or other crops permanently.

Electronic Bird Control

Bird Gard units are designed to effectively and permanently remove Western scrub-jays or Blue jays from your property. A built in microprocessor in our electronic bird control units continually randomizes the order the sounds play and the relative pitch of each bird sound to give the impression many birds are in distress in the Bird Gard protected area. This random technology prevents Western scrub-jays and Blue jays from becoming habituated and keeps birds out of your vineyard, crop, or orchard all the way through harvest.
