Airport Bird Control
Aviation and Pest Control
Airports and airfields tend to attract pest birds and other animals, to the detriment of the workers, pilots, air traffic controllers, and 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 and repairs. Bird strikes damage aircraft and equipment and put the lives of passengers and 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 and aircraft in hangars, and foul public areas such as terminal buildings and 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 and other surfaces in the area to repel pest birds.
- Install visual scares such as Terror Eyes, Prowler Owl or the 3D-Coyote.
- Implement a bird control program using the Airport Control System, for a comprehensive multi-sensory attack.
