Read how these customers were able to get rid of their pest animal problem with the help of Bird-X products and support from product experts.


Lourdes, Bird-X’s Customer Service Supervisor, recalls a customer who called about raccoons ruining the lawn of their home. Other repellent methods had little to no effect. Lourdes recommended two Yard Gard units be kept two feet off the ground on a post aimed out towards the yard. In order to most strategically place the units on the customer’s property, Lourdes used Google Maps to view the home and get a sense of the size of the yard. Within two weeks, the raccoons were not coming to their property any longer, and their lawn was successfully restored to its former glory.


A member of Lourdes’ team, Marisa, has a horror story that she quickly turned into a success story. Bats were free-flying through the customer’s home after getting in through open windows. They had been there for several weeks and weren’t leaving the customer’s large, residential farm-style home. In the past, they tried herding them out of an open door with netting, but it didn’t work. Marisa suggested three Transonic Pros to be placed on each side of the interior main area, facing open doors. The ultrasonic frequencies emitted by these devices interrupt the bats echolocation – their sonar navigation system, thereby disorienting them and creating an unwelcoming environment. Once all three units were turned on, the bats were forced out through open double doors, and all were gone in less than a weeks’ time.
