World’s Birds of Prey Populations in Decline, Bird-X Bird Deterrent Products Pick up the Slack

Share Article

Biologists analyzed all raptor species and discovered declining global populations and threats of extinction. Bird control company Bird-X, Inc. manufactures devices that replicate birds of prey sounds as a form of humane bird deterrent.

Birds of prey are a necessary part of the world’s animal kingdom, keeping pest bird and rodent populations down and maintaining a stable ecosystem. Many raptor species require forested areas, which are constantly threatened and demolished. These threats are not only due to habitat shifts, but by human activity:

"Vultures in South Asia have suffered catastrophic population declines owing to the toxic effects of the veterinary drug diclofenac," says Stuart Butchart, the chief scientist at BirdLife International. "In Africa, vultures and owls are killed for their body parts to be used for supposed medicinal benefits. Many other raptors are vulnerable to electrocution or collision with powerlines."

Without birds of prey, pest birds and other pest animals can conversely see an increase in population in certain areas. Humane bird and pest control company Bird-X, Inc. has found a way to condition pest birds to stay away from unsafe areas by using naturally recorded calls from various birds of prey. These volume-controlled sonic bird repellers can be programmed to deter specific species of pest birds, day or night.

Bird-X’s bestselling Super BirdXPeller® PRO emits recorded calls to scare and alarm many different pest birds without traps or chemicals. The sounds come at random intervals, so that the targeted birds do not grow acclimated to any set pattern of sounds. These sounds tell the birds that the area they are in is unsafe, and to seek more welcoming grounds. This is a safe, humane way to keep birds out of a number of areas like large commercial spaces, military bases, and agricultural settings.

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.
