Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do the birds become accustomed to the sounds?
A. Unlike harassment tactics such as propane cannons, pyrotechnic devices and visual deterrents that attempt to annoy birds into leaving, BirdGard products harness the bird's natural fear and survival instincts to repel them. A microprocessor randomly emits distress sounds in a completely unpredictable pattern and at random time intervals and random frequency levels. Sounds are cycled through randomly selected speakers (where applicable) to give the impression of multiple birds being under attack throughout the protected area. This keeps birds highly agitated and the constant randomization of the sequence of sounds prevents them from acclimating to the sounds.

Q. What bird species are repelled by BirdGard products?
A. We have a growing library of more than 100 recorded bird distress sounds. Once the nuisance birds are identified we will recommend the best sound card for your specific problem birds. Depending on your needs, your sound card may include distress calls, predator sounds and electronic harassment sounds

Q. What if I do not know the species of birds that is causing problems? 
A. Because BirdGard utilizes each bird's intra-species communications to drive them away, it is imperative that your nuisance birds are correctly identified. There are a number of websites and resources available to properly identify bird species. One of the best we have found is maintained by the Cornell University Lab of Ornithology. If you still have any questions after visiting their site, please call us toll free at 888-332-2328. BirdGard specialists can also assist you in the identification of your problem birds provided they are on your site on a visit.

Q. Are the sounds output through the unit audible?
A. Yes. Sonic means sounds that are audible to the human ear. Ultrasonics is sounds which are outside the hearing range of the human ear (Please see below a comparative chart for various species). BirdGard products incorporate actual bird distress cries that are digitally recorded on a microchip. To us, the distress cries sound like birds chirping; to the birds, it sounds like an attack of epic proportions. Most people get used to the sounds relatively quickly. Each product is equipped with a volume control so the sound can be adjusted for maximum effectiveness and a minimum of annoyance to humans.

Q. How long until I see results?
A. The length of time may vary, but typically the birds will leave the area within a few weeks. In most cases, you will see results very quickly with the reduction of the menace. We are unable to provide a very accurate scenario as it is interdependent on environment and nature and the menace in question.

Q. Will the sounds affect domestic animals or livestock?
A. No animals are harmed by BirdGard sounds. Domestic animals and livestock quickly get used to the sounds and are not negatively impacted.
