As the corn gets higher the threat of bird damage to your crops grows as well. It’s important to make sure that you find the right bird deterrent before the issue becomes unmanageable. But with so many different types of bird repellents, finding the best one for you might feel difficult. Here are a few different types of bird deterrents that will help you stop birds from flying off with your profits.
Visual devices are a tried and true tactic for agriculture growers. Fake decoys, like owls and hawks, scarecrows and shiny objects can be a simple and inexpensive method of protecting your crops. However, one important detail to remember is that these devices need to be rotated or moved regularly around the grounds in order to effectively keep birds away. These rotations may need to happen as much as every couple of days to as little as every week or so.
Electronic Noise Makers
Another method to consider are the electronic noise makers. There are many different types, but the main functions remain the same for the most part. The noise maker sends out a frequency that birds will hear and prompt them to keep away. However, one issue with some of these devices is that they can be audible to human ears. Those can be quite disruptive to your fellow neighbors. Opting for a device audible to only birds will be the best choice for this method.
Liquid Bird Repellent
Unlike other methods, liquid bird repellent is the most effective and efficient way to keep the birds off your crops for a longer-period of time. Liquid bird repellents have visual and sensory effects to deter the birds away. You simply spray around the crops, and see the results from there. In some liquid repellents, the ingredients will irritate the pain receptors in their brain without harming them and force them away from the treated areas. Some liquid bird repellents, like Avian Control, are non-lethal and allow for a up to two weeks of protection for your crops. Making it longer-lasting and more effective than most deterrents.
