Bird Slope™ bird deterrent, a Slippery Slope for Pest Birds

Bird Slope™ is the ideal bird deterrent product to use when pest birds are landing on window ledges and other areas with a 90 degree angle.

Bird-B-Gone, the leader in bird control products for commercial, industrial and residential applications was recently awarded another patent for its Bird Slope™ panels. Invented by Bird B Gone’s founder, Bruce Donoho, the uniquely designed Bird Slope™ now holds a total of five patents.

While similar sloped panels exist, they are often either too small or too large to be effective. If the panel is too narrow to cover the entire perching area, a bird will simply land above or below it, rendering it essentially useless. Conversely, a sloped panel that is too large for a particular perch can be unsteady and aesthetically unpleasing. The wide range of possible deployment surfaces and shapes creates a considerable problem in the manufacturing and distribution of sloped bird deterrent products.

Bird B Gone’s Bird Slope™ solves this problem by expanding or contracting its width to fit a variety of different perching areas. This is accomplished by using an extendable panel that alters the effective height of the face. The new panels can be angled between 20 and 80 degrees for the most effective bird control in a variety of venues and to deter many bird species. The panels are ideal for use on open ledges that meet at a 90-degree angle. Bird pests can’t get a grip on these angled, slippery PVC panels and slide off whenever they try to land. Effective against all types of birds, the sloped panels install easily under eaves, on ledges, beams and similar areas frequented by pest birds.

Bird Slope™ is available in 4-foot long sections and includes 48 feet per box. The panels are glued to virtually any flat surface. Special mounting clips allow the panels to be easily installed vertically on the sides of buildings. Some panels have “end caps” to prevent birds from getting behind them.

To blend in with its surroundings, Bird Slope™ is available in two colors--stone and grey. Each panel is made of UV-protected PVC material for lasting durability in hot sun and harsh weather. For those who need to install bird deterrents next to electrical wiring, the panels are non-conductive for extra safety. A glue trough on the underside of each panel makes for easy installation using standard outdoor polyurethane adhesive.

Besides being unsightly, pest bird droppings contain acids that can corrode metal, plastic and many other materials. This can jam up windows and doors. Bird droppings are also unhealthy. They can carry any of 60 known diseases—like salmonellosis. This makes pest birds particularly hazardous in areas where food is stored, processed or served. Bird droppings on walkways and entryways to a commercial building can create serious slip-and-fall hazards. Failing to implement an effective bird deterrent strategy can result in expensive cleanups, repairs and even legal liabilities

Bird-B-Gone is the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of bird control products, providing effective and humane solutions to a bird-free environment. The company provides advice, training and installation services for those who need help with these and other bird control measures.
