How to Get Rid of Starlings
One of our most long-proven methods in starling control is the BirdXPeller PRO (up to 1 acre), or for larger areas, the Super BirdXPeller PRO (up to 6 acres). This sonic device mimics the sound of natural predators as well as bird distress cries, including starlings.
Visual deterrents work very well against starlings, and are sometimes enough to do the job on their own depending on the situation. Some of our best-tested visual devices against starlings include the Prowler Owl, Terror Eyes, and Scare Eyes.
In addition to the visual scare, Irri-tape also creates a noise in the breeze or when touched, which Starlings dislike.
If silent-to-humans, no-mess control is desired, any ultrasonic bird deterrents will help as well – we have many choices, select the best ultrasonic device for your sized area. Our best-selling devices for Starlings include the Balcony Gard (up to 900 sq. ft), the Ultrason X (covers up to 3,600 sq. ft.), and the QuadBlaster QB-4 (up to 6,500 sq. ft.)
Starlings are extremely aggressive toward other species of birds when it comes to food and nesting areas, and often chase off wood ducks, buffleheads, northern flickers, great crested flycatchers, tree swallows, and eastern bluebirds.
