For those who may be considering purchasing an ultrasonic bird deterrent there are a few things they should know. There are many different types of devices that have proven effective in clearing birds from property and all of them have their pros and cons. Understanding how an ultrasonic bird repeller works can help you to decide if it is the right choice for your circumstances.
What Is An Ultrasonic Bird Deterrent?
The ultrasonic bird deterrent is an electronic device that is designed to emit a high-pitched sound that is beyond the normal range of human hearing. This type of device has been used for many years to deal with pest problems. While the noise it emits cannot normally be heard by humans it does fall within the hearing range of almost all species of birds. Sonic devices, on the other hand, work with sounds that are within the range of human hearing and can be quite annoying if used where people tend to populate. This is the reason why so many people prefer to use the ultrasonic devices when getting rid of birds in heavily populated areas.
Where Can They Be Used?
Ultrasonic devices can be used in a wide number of places where humans tend to frequent. They are the ideal choice when you're in an area where noise can become a problem. Business locations would likely prefer to use an ultrasonic device and quietly get rid of their birds rather than a sonic device, which can leave people feeling annoyed and stressed when exposed to it for too long.
The ultrasonic device can also be used indoors if needed. This can be very effective for locations like storehouses, warehouses, barns and other places where birds may feel that they can get a quick and easy meal.
The main principle behind the device is to flood the area where birds tend to gather with high frequency waves that can be an irritation to them. While the sound is perfectly harmless, the birds will find the experience unpleasant and will quickly vacate the area. Most of these units are easy to install and can operate pretty much on their own with little attention needed.
You can choose the type of ultrasonic bird deterrent to suit your specific need. One type offers a constant call of a predator, while another type with a variable setting mimics other forms of wildlife that birds naturally fear.
It is important to understand that no device can successfully eliminate all the different types of species that may have gravitated to your property for some reason or another. If you have several different species of birds, you'll have to use a variable device that allows you to adjust the frequency periodically so that it will work on several different species of birds.
There is no such thing as permanently getting rid of birds. They are persistent creatures that will return and retest the system for a way to get back on your property, especially if they know they can get a free meal there. So, using a bird deterrent will have to be an ongoing practice if you expect to maintain control of your property.
