Bird-X Featured in Federal Health & Medicine Publication Highlighting Dangers of Avian Influenza

Share Article

After the USDA confirmed cases of highly pathogenic H7 avian influenza in a commercial flock in Tennessee, bird owners and backyard enthusiasts are warned to take precaution against human infection. Bird-X can humanely keep hazardous droppings and infected birds away from any area.

Avian influenza, also known as “bird flu”, has been seasonally affecting birds across the country for years. Some strains can travel in wild birds, without them even appearing sick. Federal Health & Medicine, the publication for definitive health and medical research programs, notes in a recent article pertaining to infectious diseases.

The best way to stay safe against bird flu is to keep birds away from commercial spaces, residential areas, and other locations with heavy foot traffic, as birds can transmit the deadly disease to humans and other mammals alike. The disease can infect any poultry (such as chickens, turkeys, quail, etc.) and can be carried by waterfowl like ducks and geese.

Bird-X, the humane bird deterrent company, has a variety of physical barriers and electronic deterrent devices to keep any area, indoors or outdoors, completely free of birds. Birds are conditioned by naturally recorded predator bird cries to seek safer land via sonic devices, or are unable to land on ledges and roofs due to the uneven landing surfaces that stainless steel or plastic bird spikes create. Keep birds away without harmful chemicals or dangerous traps.

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.
