Bird Deterrent Technologies Announces National Vulture Effigy Launch

Edgewater, FL / July 9, 2018 / PR Newswire

Bird Deterrent Technologies LLC (BDT) is proud to announce the successful completion of field testing and national rollout of their signature product: The Vulture Effigy – The most life-like predatory bird replica available. These effigies have proven to be a highly cost-effective solution for cellular tower owners dealing with the persistent problem of birds roosting overnight; several studies have shown that roosts can decline by 90% – 100% within a week of an effigy being deployed.

When cell-communication tower owners deploy the Bird Deterrent Technologies life-like ‘Vulture Decoy’, the results are almost instantaneous – birds get agitated, confused and quickly migrate to another property that present a less threatening sight picture. With over a year of field-testing and on-site evaluations, Bird Deterrent Technologies has means tested and deployed the most realistic Bird Deterrent available.

To an approaching bird, the Vulture Effigy looks very life-like (or lifeless), often creating a confused and agitated state. While sounding simplistic, these agitated and confused emotions are easily transferred bird-to-bird exponentially creating confusion among the approaching flock.

“When you consider the damage and health risks presented by having all of these birds roosting on a cell tower, and then factor in the continued maintenance and cell phone upgrades that are required by cell phone service-providers; the Vulture Effigy bird deterrent system not only delivers an economical solution to the age old problem of managing birds and their droppings, but our exhaustive testing has definitively proven that our decoys-effigies keep towers bird free – and that’s the holy grail for cell tower owners,” says Russell Adams, Founder & Managing Partner of Bird Deterrent Technologies LLC. He adds: “Every now and then, a product comes along that just works. It may not be fancy or glamorous or high-tech, but it is extremely effective.”

The presence of birds roosting on towers pose health and safety issues for maintenance crews. Tower maintenance and service provider upgrades require a hands-on approach. Aside from an unsightly mess, bird droppings can create a hazardous, slippery surface for workers climbing or working on top of the tower. The acidic nature of bird droppings can also influence the structural integrity of the towers frame adding significant repair and maintenance costs.
