Airport Bird Control
Aviation and Pest Control
Airports & airfields tend to attract pest birds & other animals, to the detriment of the workers, pilots, air traffic controllers, & passengers. According to the National Defense Center for Environmental Excellence (NDCEE), approximately 5,000 bird strikes occur each year, costing the airline industry an estimated $1.5 billion in damages & repairs. Bird strikes damage aircrafts & equipment, putting the lives of passengers & crew members in serious danger. The Miracle on the Hudson showed the world how a bird strike could easily disable a large passenger jet. Fortunately, in that instance all 155 passengers survived.
Besides the airborne threat of bird strike, pest birds also damage valuable equipment & aircrafts in hangars, as well as deface public areas such as terminal buildings & parking structures.
For Pest Birds
- Use a powerful sonic device such as the Mega Blaster PRO to scare birds away (up to 30 acres).
- Apply a taste aversion to the grass, turf & other surfaces in the area to repel pest birds.
- Install visual scares such as Terror Eyes, Prowler Owl or the 3D-Coyote to maximize results.
- Implement a bird control program using the Airport Control System, for a comprehensive multi-sensory attack.
