Bird-B-Gone Mist

May 27, 2009
Bird-B-Gone’s new bird control product releases a fine mist into the air to deter birds from large, open spaces.

It distributes methyl anthranilate, a grape extract that irritates a bird’s trigeminal nerve and mucous membranes, causing it to fly away.

Methyl anthranilate is a grape extract that naturally occurs in concord grapes and is recognized by the FDA as a safe substance. The extract has been used by pest control companies for years as a way to safely and humanely deter birds and geese.

The Bird-B-Gone Mist has an LCD touch screen for programming. A facility manager can attach 64 misting units (drop stations) and control each one individually using the control unit. Each drop station covers 6,000 to 8,000 square feet. Spray units can be set to go off simultaneously or at alternating times. The control panel monitors liquid levels and alerts the user when it’s time to refill the units. In addition, the mist leaves no residue behind.
