Please see our Outdoor Pest Control page for more information.
The BroadBand PRO is the best-selling device for outdoor use as it provides a cost-effective, comprehensive approach. This electronic bird control devices combines both sonic and ultrasonic techniques and includes three highly effective visual scares.
What products are best where silence is essential such as customer, guest, or employee areas?
Ultrasonic sound devices are silent to most humans, meaning the noises emitted are above most humans’ range of hearing. The Super QuadBlaster QB-4 and the Ultrason X units fall into this category. Also, keep in mind that physical deterrents such as Bird Spikes, a scent and taste aversion like Bird Stop, and visual scares such as the 3D-Coyote and Terror Eyes are silent as well.
What products are best for repelling geese and ducks?
Please see our Goose Control page for more information.
Geese can be very stubborn and territorial birds. One of our sonic repellers, the GooseBuster, was developed as a result of three decades of scientific research into the behavior and communication patterns of Canada geese. A taste aversion such as Bird Stop helps makes grass and turf inedible to birds. Visual scares like the 3D-Coyote and Gator Guard are also useful. Ideally, combining all three approaches would be most effective.
What products are best for repelling bats?
The Super QuadBlaster QB-4 and the Transonic PRO are particularly effective against bats. For more information, visit our Bat Control page.
What products are best for repelling woodpeckers?
Please see our Woodpecker Control page for more information.
The Woodpecker PRO sonic repeller is designed specifically for getting rid of woodpeckers. Visual scares such as Terror Eyes and Irri-Tape are also effective woodpecker deterrents.
What products are best for repelling pigeons?
Please see our Pigeon Control page for more information.
To keep pigeons from perching on ledges, sills, and other convenient surfaces, install Bird Spikes or apply Bird Gel. If it’s a large outdoor area, the BirdXPeller PRO is effective; for smaller enclosed spaces, the Super QuadBlaster QB-4 is recommended. The Terror Eyes unit is also very effective at deterring these stubborn pest birds.
What products are best for repelling crows?
Please see our Crow Control page for more information.
Bird Netting can be used to keep birds away from specific areas, crops, vineyards, gardens, etc. Sonic devices like the BirdXPeller PRO or the Super BirdXPeller PRO (depending on the size of the area) are recommended, along with visual scares such as Terror Eyes and Irri-Tape.

Can I get references from others who have used these products?

Where should I mount the repeller?
Let the environment be your guide; a sound repeller works best when installed at the level of the pests, speakers facing the direction from which they arrive, with no walls or other structural barriers blocking the sound. A visual deterrent will be most effective when mounted at the level of, close enough to, and easily visible to, the pests. Spikes and Bird Proof Gel must be applied to each specific beam, ledge, sill, and more on which birds are roosting. Please read the instruction manual for the product you have selected.
Can you provide installation manuals and/or videos?
Yes. On each product page, there are several tabs. Click on the “Specs” tab to find the downloadable instruction manual for a product. Most products are quite simple and don’t need a video demonstration. However, we do have a Bird Netting installation instruction video, as larger projects may require more detailed planning.
Can birds and pests get used to unmoving, unchanging repellent methods?
Pest birds and other animals are smart and stubborn. They quickly acclimate to visual devices that don’t move and sound repellers that don’t change pattern. All Bird-X products are designed to maintain the element of surprise. Our visual deterrents move and change with the wind and light, and some include always-changing holographic material that further confuses birds. Our sound repellers are programmable to vary their species settings, frequencies, intermittence, hours of operation and more.
Why do you recommend multiple products?
To permanently repel birds and prevent infestation, it is crucial to treat the problem and its source, not just the symptoms. The only way to do this is to make the environment undesirable. Because birds are often long-term visitors with a strong attachment to their habitat, it is critical to attack more than one sense. For example, a sound repeller and a visual scare used together make the area seem threatening on two levels. Each product helps to support the effects of the other, resulting in a higher probability of success overall.

Health and Safety
Are your products humane?
Yes. Our products are humane, eco-friendly, non-toxic, non-harmful and extremely effective. We have received referrals from the Audubon Society, the Coalition to Prevent the Destruction of Canada Geese, the Humane Society of the United States, and the Animal Damage Control division of the USDA.
Non-lethal deterrents are actually the most effective, because they condition pests to stay away for good. Lethal methods do not make the environment unappealing for future pests. There are also many more benefits of humane pest control.
Can the ultrasonic and sonic repellers be used near women who are pregnant and/or people with pacemakers?
Yes. There are no known risks caused by ultrasonic and sonic repellers.
What standards do you have for Quality, Customer Service, Electrical, Safety and Distribution?
We are members of the Better Business Bureau. We also pride ourselves on our internal quality system for everything from production to marketing. Regarding products, most of the power sources for our electronic products are ETL and/or UL/CUL listed. This designation indicates that products are manufactured in a controlled environment, with registered facilities as well as registered products. Most of our electronic products are CE-marked for distribution throughout the European Union.
Are ultrasonic and laser repellers a concern for employees, customers, residents, children or pets?
It is wise to be cautious with any sound or light in our environment (i.e., avoid loud rock concerts, avoid staring directly at the sun). Bird-X ultrasonic and laser repellers are not dangerous when used as directed. Ultrasonic repellers can be loud, while registering above human hearing range. Laser repellers are fully-registered and consumer safe, though still lasers. We recommend both only at high ceiling levels, not near people for long periods of time.
