Bird Control Products and Techniques

This review for the most part uses the categories and follows the sequence of products/techniques as listed in the Transport Canada "Wildlife Control Procedures Manual" (Transport Canada 1994). Visual deterrents (rather than chemical deterrents as in the Transport Canada manual) follow auditory deterrents because many of these products provide both auditory and visual stimuli. Additional equipment and techniques that are not listed in the Transport Canada manual are discussed under the appropriate categories, or follow at the end of this section. Brief descriptions of each product/technique and its application are presented here, but more complete information is available in the Transport Canada Manual.
