Bird Barrier Introduces New Sparrow Trap

Share Article

One of the biggest challenges in the bird control industry is catching sparrows and starlings inside large retail establishments and public places. The new Sparrow "Trap Door" catches birds humanely in these settings.

The Sparrow "Trap Door" is shown in set and triggered positions.

Designed specifically for birds inside structures, the "Trap Door" features a flat platform on the top onto which bird food is applied.

Birds tend to occupy large retail stores because they offer so much food, water and harborage. Because of this, they can be difficult to attract to traps and new food sources. They quickly find hiding places and may even build nests indoors and create a breeding colony.

Retail business owners will like the Sparrow "Trap Door" because it is discrete and blends in well with interior décor. This is because Bird Barrier's new Sparrow "Trap Door" is a trap that doesn't look like a trap; in fact it doesn't act like a trap either. Designed specifically for birds inside structures, the "Trap Door" features a flat platform on the top onto which bird food is applied. Like a bird feeder, the sparrow simply stands atop the device, eating to its heart's content. At some point, usually quite quickly, it steps on a thin wire perch, which causes the platform to collapse under it (like a trap door), and it gently falls inside to a ventilated, quiet holding area which keeps the bird docile with no stress.

Food and water can be left inside the trap if desired. Store personnel can monitor the trap easily because when open, or armed, a large baffle sticks straight up, but when triggered the lid is in the down position signaling that a bird has been captured.

The trap can be set upon a shelf, racking, or hung from a pipe or beam above. It is best to position the trap as close to the bird activity as possible, keeping in mind that other food and water sources should be eliminated if possible. Lightweight and easy to handle, the trap is constructed from a dense, strong, PVC foam. It is easy to clean. The bottoms opens up for easy bird release and clean out.

Bird Barrier has posted a video of the trap catching starlings on its website. The video can be watched on the Bird Barrier video page.

The trap retails to the pest professional for $110. Large facilities generally require at least four traps for complete coverage. Bird Barrier provides a complete line of bird control products to the pest control industry, including StealthNet, Bird-Shock, Bird Spikes and everything else you might need.
