Bird Barrier Shares Latest Bird Control Success Story

Share Article

A large steel farm building that houses a university’s agricultural animals had a serious problem. Though there is a roof, two of the sides are wide open, and the roof’s open beam structure provided thousands of feet of perching surfaces for pigeons. A professional bird control installer was called in to address the problem.

Pigeons roosting on the girders and beams of a barn were leaving a mess below that required maintenance crew to power wash the facility on a daily basis. The animals residing in the barn are research animals, so it was vital that they didn't live in proximity to pigeons, droppings and the potential disease hazards associated with birds.

The professional installer proposed a two-tier bird control system using Bird Barrier products. Bird Barrier’s StealthNet® was installed tightly under all the roosting points creating a false ceiling. Pigeons could still fly in, but were denied the opportunity to perch and contaminate the animal’s feed below.

To reduce the overall pigeon population humanely, an OvoControl® P feeder was installed near the barn in an open area. OvoControl is birth control for pigeons, and sites that utilize the product generally experience a 50% decrease in pigeons in the first year. The pigeons had been eating on lamb feed, so the installer initially mixed it in with the OvoControl P to attract them to the feeder.
