How To Choose A Bird Deterrent
When trying to scare away any pest, there are always a bunch of factors that come into play. Luckily, when it comes to scaring birds away, there are very little harmful products on the market and none that we would recommend, so you do not have to worry about that. Every individual situation is different so let’s break down what might cause you to choose one deterrent over the other.
If you are anything like us-we like a simple product that is easy to use. It is bad enough that you are dealing with an issue already, the last thing you want is to spend hours setting something up and additional hours maintaining it.
Most bird deterrents are simple and require very little maintenance over time, but that is not true for all of them. You want to go for a reflective device if you are looking for something that is simple. Reflective devices are as simple as setting them up and forgetting about them. They are going to work even when you are not around to consistently scare birds away.
Reflective devices also do not require any maintenance over time. They last a few years and then they need to get replaced.
You want, a deterrent that is going to work better than any other one. You want the most effective one you can buy, so it’s important that you check out reviews and get recommendations from people who have already tried the product.
Often the most effective products are the simplest ones that get you from point A to point B the fastest. We are preaching simply here. You could spend a ton of money on a fogger or other repellent type product that may never work and requires a lot of maintenance, or you could go from a reflective device that you set up and forget.
Another huge factor to consider when getting a bird deterrent is how long it will last. You do not want something that is going to become ineffective within a few days or weeks. Some reflective devices fade over time, and once that happens, they lose their effectiveness.
When checking out reviews and deciding on a deterrent, you want to pay attention to the reviews that tell you the product has lasted over time. When it comes to keeping birds away from your crops, you do not want to forget about the device and come home one day to all your seeds gone, and your crops have bird droppings all over them. Do not waste your time on a product that will not last you at least a few months.
