On the Water
Bird Deterrents for Boats and Marinas
Deterring pest birds on the water can be very difficult. Some water birds can be extremely stubborn and tough to repel. Additionally, gulls, herons, ospreys, coots, and other birds are heavily protected by the law. Bird-X offers options that have proven effective for decades in these spaces, even in the toughest to control marine and outdoor environments.
For Pest Birds
For widest area coverage, use a sonic repeller:
- We recommend the BirdXPeller PRO or Super BirdXPeller PRO depending on the size of the area
- The GooseBuster or Goosebuster PRO is ideal for removing Canada geese
- The Mega Blaster PRO is best for remote, huge uninhabited areas
*These devices can be operated from a battery and solar panels if no A/C electricity is available on site.
Another option for larger bodies of water, such as rentention ponds and lakes, are Floating Bird Balls. These balls eliminate waterfowl like ducks, geese, and gulls by completely covering the water's surface to prevent pest water birds from landing. The balls even allow sunlight to maintain the water's ecosystem. Bacteria, and other vegetation growing on the balls is not a problem due to the continuous motion on the surface of the water.
For smaller areas, or where budget requires a low-tech solution, use an effective visual scare - just be sure to move it around daily to prevent birds from acclimating to it. Visual scares are also very beneficial in combination with other methods, such as sonic or ultrasonic sound units. Merging two types of solutions help to produce a multisensory attack and increase the efficacy of bird control.
