PG&E of Oakland, CA solved their pigeon pest control issues by installing BirdBuffer® units to repel 55,000 starlings that were causing a great deal of mess with droppings. After 6 months of application, they reported, “there isn’t a bird within a mile from here. When birds nest, snakes climb to get the eggs. It causes a short of transformers.”
The vapor from a BirdBuffer gives a natural repelling affect that keeps birds away. The invisible grape vapor works during daylight hours and keeps the pesky birds from returning.
- Placement of BirdBuffers at upper corner of 3 long capacitors –about 120’ x 300’
- Flocks of 55,000 starlings would fly in and leave their mess, making cleaning necessary – not anymore.
- Capacitors 30’ high with upwind. Wind going from NW to SE diagonally.
- Units have been installed since early 2013 – “They’re working great. No birds within a mile of here.”
