For Pest Birds
For widest area coverage, use a sonic bird 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.
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 multi-sensory attack and increase the efficacy of bird control.
Koi ponds are a common problem area for pest birds, such as herons, and predatory animals. This is because predators are attracted to the bright and beautiful colors of koi fish. Herons, for example, may stand in smaller koi ponds to hunt for fish. They can be deterred, however, with the right solutions.

Bird Deterrents for Boat Docks and Watercraft
Boat docks and marinas are another favorite place for nuisance birds. Masts, railings and canvas materials make ideal perching spots for pest birds such as seagulls. Moreover, they leave their bird feathers, droppings and nests behind for boat owners. The unsightly mess that seagulls create can produce slippery surfaces, ruin finishes, and cause corrosion on boats and boat docks. When the weather is perfect for sailing, the last thing boaters want to do is spend their time cleaning up the mess.
Fortunately, there are water bird scarers that can help provide protection from these feathered creatures 24/7. Bird deterrents for boats include visual scares and sonic bird repellers.
