Bird Free® is a relatively recent product containing food-grade natural oils that claims to keep all birds off all structures without harming them. Bird Free® does not kill or trap birds, but immediately changes their behaviour so that they fly away.
Developed by scientists in Korea, Bird Free® is formulated so that birds won’t go near it: it gives off ultraviolet light, which the birds see as flame, so Bird Free® appears to them as fire. Visual deterrence is further reinforced by the selected natural oils contained in the Bird Free® preparation, which are abhorrent to a bird’s senses of smell and taste.
Bird Free’s deterrent effect on birds is long lasting. Left undisturbed, Bird Free® will remain effective for at least two years after proper installation, even in the most exposed environment.
Bird Free Gel is dispensed into shallow plastic trays which are placed about 9 inches apart on the surface to be protected. Because of the low profile of the trays the installation is often barely visible from the ground, reducing the visual impact of the proofing.
