Airplane Hangars Get Bird Control

Updated 04/12/2021

Bird control was needed to stop pigeon droppings on all of the planes, equipment and tools inside the hangar. When birds stayed overnight, it was a mess the next morning. (Bird Fact: On average, a well-fed pigeon deposits 25 pounds of droppings a year.)


Strategic placement of a BirdBuffer with a 1 hp fan created a “barrier or buffer zone” to stop the birds. The birds don’t like the scent of the grape vapor when flying and breathing it in.


Tests show the birds stayed away after 2 months of daily use. Timing is important. Both machines were timed to come on only during the day since this is when the birds fly.


Pigeons that once flew in and stayed, now fly right back out. Placement of these machines near the door angled directly to the back were timed for just enough grape scent for humans to barely smell, yet is enough to keep out the birds.


Tests were shown in many airports that if birds are kept out of the hangars, it reduces bird traffic throughout the airport. This keeps the bird traffic down and reduces the potential spread of diseases associated with bird droppings in the hangers.


Put a stop to birds in airplane hangars.

BirdBuffer is an extremely flexible solution, creating an invisible barrier or “bird-free zone” around the most critical areas in your facility. Our system is highly effective in gaining control of birds in airplane hangars. At BirdBuffer, we use a safe and effective vapor-based solution to keep birds away. We’ve worked with many public and private airplane hangars, as well as US Air Force bases to help them safely deter birds away from planes and people.
