With Bird Flu Back for Another Year, Bird-X How to Keep Homes and Businesses Safe and Clean

Share Article

Bird Flu comes every year, and with each passing year scientists are able to use previous data to hopefully one day predict upcoming pandemics in people. In the meantime, Bird-X humane bird deterrent products can keep families and businesses safe from exposure and stop birds from infecting even more birds.

Just like people, birds can get sick with the flu as well. This can affect a variety of birds, from waterfowl like ducks to chickens and other poultry, and other wild bird species. People exposed to these infected birds are at risk for catching the disease, especially pregnant women, people with immunodeficiency issues, and people ages 65 and up.

Birds and their droppings can carry over 60 transmissible diseases. By studying the Bird/Avian Flu in particular, scientists can better predict how pandemics like flu viruses can spread in humans. "It's amazing how the virus can change so rapidly, what genes they inherit," said Pamela McKenzie in a recent article for NJ.com, who oversees St. Jude's global bird flu surveillance.

Bird deterrent devices like sonic repellers can safely and humanely keep birds away from a variety of large open areas and residential properties alike. If noise is an issue, like in parking structures or at outdoor hotel spas, ultrasonic devices are also extremely effective – emitting frequencies outside of human hearing range that are still heard by birds, and irritate and confuse them enough to feel uncomfortable and vacate the treated area.

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.
