“Avian Control® significantly reduced bird damage on my 1,400 acres of sweet corn.”

“Our experience in using Avian Control® on cherries in Washington state exceeded our expectations.

The birds were gone!”

Rob Valicoff Owner Valicoff Fruit Company, Inc.

“My experience is limited to some observations on blueberry for several bird species: Blue Jays, Wrens, Black birds, Cardinals, Robbins and finches and others. I made three applications every two weeks at the low rate (32 ounces per acre) of Avian Control® to several Rabbit eye Blueberry plants in June of 2012 in Raleigh, NC. Several nearby blueberry bushes did not receive any Avian Control®. Those that received no Avian Control® had extensive bird damage with small pecks (more than 40 percent) in the fruit and major fruit drop (more than 75 percent). Those blueberry bushes receiving Avian Control® had very few pecks in the fruit (less than 5 percent) and with fruit drop less than 5 percent. Obviously bird droppings were minimized on the treated plants.”
