Milwaukee Transit Stations Made Messy by Birds; Bird-X Products Can Help

Share Article

The Milwaukee County Transit System is facing big problems at the bus operation station near 35th Street and Fond du Lac Avenue due to bird droppings. Humane bird deterrent technology by Bird-X, Inc. has been designed for these exact situations, without need for toxic chemicals or dangerous traps.

Seagulls are an extremely common pest bird, especially in areas where people frequently pass through, leaving food and other miscellaneous items behind, attracting the gulls to scavenge for scraps and nesting materials. Milwaukee, Wisconsin is seeing this firsthand, with their transit system overrun by the bird. Just one week ago, over 5,000 seagull eggs were removed from Milwaukee County Transit System properties. But simply removing eggs will not deter the birds that already are causing problems. Humane bird control company Bird-X, Inc. has been researching sonic devices to deter pest birds for over 50 years, and has proven success with keeping seagulls away from public commercial areas.

Gulls are protected by law in most of the United States, and respond best to humane treatments that irritate and annoy them into moving away from treated areas. Effective products include Extra Tall “Seagull Spike” bird spikes and the species-specific sonic device BirdXPeller ® PRO that emits seagull distress calls as well as predator bird cries; scaring the birds away from the area and making them believe that there are birds of prey nearby. This greatly reduces bird waste and droppings which can corrode cars, public fixtures, and transit property, as well as the risk of spreading zoonotic diseases.

Bird-X, Inc. has spent over 50 years protecting public areas from over 60 bird-spread transmissible diseases. The leading international brand of humane bird control solutions, this Chicago-based company manufactures a complete line of unique bird control products, protecting the health of humans, wildlife, and the environment by deterring birds from unwanted areas without harming them.
