Ultrasonic bird repellers are a great way to keep pest birds away from your property, especially if you want your bird control to be relatively invisible, or if you have open spaces that you cannot practically cover with netting, which can be unsightly. Typically, they cover 3,000 – 6,000 square feet, but with the right system you could cover up to six acres.
How Do Ultrasonic Bird Repellers Work?
Ultrasonic bird control devices work by using sound frequencies the human ear cannot hear, but birds can, which means you and anyone else using the property won’t know the device is on. The birds find the pressure of these sounds uncomfortable and can disorient them, so they quickly learn to stay away from areas that are utilizing ultrasonic repellers.
These repellers are powered by battery, mains electricity, or solar panel depending on the size and location of the area you need to protect from pest birds.
Where to Use Ultrasonic Bird Repellent Devices
Ultrasonic bird repellers are best for small and enclosed locations where you want to deter birds but don’t want to use physical deterrents such as netting and spikes.
Ultrasonic sound doesn’t travel well through solid objects (like walls), so you need to be able to position the speakers so they have a direct line of sight to the area you wish to protect, though like all other sounds it will reflect off solid surfaces, which makes it particularly effective in an enclosed area, like a warehouse or courtyard setting.
What Birds Will an Ultrasonic Device Deter?
Ultrasonic devices often deter all birds and wildlife, from pigeons and grackles to woodpeckers, ducks, geese, as well as bats, rats and mice, and other small animals, though you may need to adjust the frequency to effectively repel these rodents and animals.
Are Ultrasonic Bird Repellent Devices Humane?
Ultrasonic bird repellent devices are an incredibly humane way to keep birds and bats away from your home, balcony, or your place of business, as they simply make the bird feel uncomfortable or disoriented enough to fly away.
It is worth noting, however, that ultrasonic devices also make other animals feel uncomfortable, so if you need a device that won’t upset pets and service dogs, you may want to look into other bird repellent methods.
Ultrasonic bird repellers are also one of the best choices for those who need to use a device that is safe for children, as you won’t have any sharp surfaces or poison littered around. If you’re looking for an effective long-term solution for your property that, once installed, you won’t even notice, an ultrasonic repeller may be the best choice for you.
