Bye-Bye Birdie bird repellant is no longer available; it has been replaced with Bat Scat repellent. Bat Scat contains the same active ingredient and is now labeled for repelling birds.
For most of us, the early morning songs and chatter of birds is a pleasant and
enjoyable sound. It heralds the beginning of a new day, a fresh start and a beautiful
sunrise. It is only when these bird colonies reach a significant size or location that we
become affected by their behavior. Birds colonize in a manner similar to bats and produce
the same damaging effects with their droppings.
Birds habitats are relatively simple:
1. Nesting must be as undisturbed as possible.
We are all familiar with the damage that bird droppings have on automotive paint. Few
rarely consider the potential of dangerous micro-organisms problems when carrying bird
droppings into our living areas on the soles of our shoes. Mites fall into this last
category. While not necessarily dangerous they can cause health problems if allowed to
enter and multiply in a friendly environment.
1. Olfactory bulb and nerves.
A birds olfactory senses are similar to bats and mice but are not used for the same
purpose. Birds prefer little or no unusual odors present.
Birds have an immediate physical response to odor stimuli. The stronger the odor the stronger the response. Dr. T's repellents produce the following reactions, none of which are destructive or permanent.
1. Increased heart rate. The more intense the odor the more the heart rate goes up
These problems within the balance of the birds habitat alter its limits for tolerance or endurance and leaves the birds three options:
Naphthalene is expected to significantly reduce bird sightings in protected areas. (NOTE: Manufacturer strongly suggest that treatments be made prior or after the birds nesting cycle. Tolerance levels decrease and young can then migrate).
