Introduction

Birds can be a pain at times, I know. Especially when they leave their droppings on different surfaces around the house. In farms, they peck at crops, leaving it inedible.

Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get rid of birds because they can easily go to a different location on your property. 

Don’t worry. In this post, I will review the 13 best bird repellents you can use to finally rid your house of those pesky birds. 

Let’s begin.

1. Dalen Natural Scarecrow Device Solar Action Owl

Pros

✅Effective

✅Realistic and beautiful design

✅Easy to store

✅Natural deterrent. No chemicals.

✅Doesn’t need batteries

✅You can place it anywhere

Cons

🚫You would need to move it every few days

🚫More expensive compared to other brands

🚫Lightweight. Doesn’t hold well against strong winds

Key Details

  • Type of repellent: Decoy repellent
  • How fast does it work: Movement is powered by the sun’s energy collected through a solar panel on top of the head.
  • How long does it last: It’s well made and it would last a few years if stored out properly.
  • Other Special Features:
    1. For chemical-free pest control, the SOL-R Action Owl helps aid in the protecting lawns and gardens from pests
    2. Realistic head movements powered by solar energy or wind
    3. No batteries necessary—ever
    4. Made from no less than 80% post-industrial recycled content

How Does It Work

The Natural Scarecrow Solar Action Owl has glowing eyes and rotating heads that effectively drive birds away.

This device is solar powered, so you’ll need to place it in a sunlit area in order for it to work.  If you’re in an area with not enough light, make sure that the wind is strong enough.

To keep birds away, place the device where birds frequent. You can place the device arond the fruits and vegetables that you’re growing in your garden to protect them.

Make sure it is in the upright position upon installation. I also recommend trying moving its position every few days, to see which place is most effective.

What I Like

More than the traditional scarecrow

The owl is known to prey on various animals such as rabbits, squirrels and birds. Because owls are natural predators of many domestic birds, using an owl in replacement of traditional scarecrows is highly effective.

 

Lifelike and beautiful design.

The owl consists of durable materials and each part is hand-painted. This makes the scarecrow a lifelike model of owls.

 

Solar and Wind Powered

This device gets power from both wind and sun. 

It has a solar panel located on top of the owls head which provides power, aside from wind.

 

Rotating head

The owls rotating head makes this device look more realistic and effective. How fast it moves will depend on the amount of energy the sun and the wind provides.

What I Dislike

Prone to damage

Since it is outside of the house, the different elements in its surroundings may cause it to fade. This makes the product less effective in scaring the birds away overtime.

 

Not effective for some animals

Not all birds and pests are reprelled by this product. Some may even attack it, which may cause the owl to break.

2. Premium Quality Bird Deterrent Reflective Scare Tape Ribbon

Pros

✅Easy to use

✅Produces rustling sounds that can startle birds

✅Non-toxic

✅Colorful and pleasing design

✅Budget-friendly

✅Effective in keeping birds away

Cons

🚫No adhesive

🚫Tends to fade over time.

🚫Will eventually need to be replaced

🚫Fragile

🚫Produces noise, which can be annoying to some

🚫Doesn’t work at night

🚫May aseffective for larger birds

Key Details

  • Type of repellent: Reflective scare tape ribbon
  • How fast does it work: The tape is highly reflective, so it works quickly.
  • How long does it last: Thanks to its high-quality materials and premium construction quality, the tape doesn’t fade away, regardless of your area’s weather conditions.
  • Other Special Features:
    1. Dual-sided & 2” wide
    2. Extra strong construction material
    3. Highly reflective diamond pattern
    4. Durable under various weather conditions
    5. 350ft, incredibly long roll
    6. Easy to install

How Does It Work

This Bird Deterrent is a light-reflective holographic tape. It helps in repelling birds and other types of pests.

It does this by reflecting sunlight, which blinds birds and causes them to scatter and leave your area.

To use, install the tape around areas where birds frequent. Common places to place the tape are in high areas such as trees and windows.

Upon installation, make sure to secure the tape and make sure it won’t break. . Remember that the tape  needs replacing every few months since the reflective colorsis expected to fade overtime.

I also recommend torelocate the tape regularly to avoid the birds and pests becoming familiar with it, rendering the tape useless.

What I Like

Covers a huge space

The tape is about 100m long and 5cm wide, which is long enough to cover your backyard or any areas around the house.

 

Additional repelling ability

Aside from reflecting sunlight, it also makes rustling sounds to startle birds.

 

Convenient

Intallation  won’t take up much of your time since you would only need to cut and attach it to your desired area. You can do this by either tying it or sticking it with adhesive.

 

Natural approach

This product doesn’t contain any toxic chemicals that may harm birds and other pests. It’s enough to only drive them away and not hurt them in the process.

What I Dislike

No adhesive

You would need to hang or tie it for it to remain secure in the area where you placed it, otherwise the wind might blow it away.

 

Not effective for other birds

Some birds don’t get fazed by the product. You could try relocating it because they might have grown accustomed to it.

 

Fragile

This product tends to break around strong winds. You may try placing it in a more sturdy surface to prevent it from moving. Staples and duct tape may not be enough to keep them attached.

3. Bird Spikes for Pigeons and Small Birds

Pros

✅Comes in various sizes

✅Has pre-drilled holes

✅Stainless steel spikes

✅Not visible from a distance

✅Proven effective

🚫No adhesive provided

🚫10-year warranty won’t cover everything

How Does It Work

This product is made from thin stainless steel spikes designed to repel birds by poking them as soon as they land on it.  

This product doesn’t need maintenance. It is also very easy to install. You would only need to make sure that it’s in unbroken lengths, to be more effective.

You should still check it once in a while, to see if there are trash or leaves that may clog the spikes.

What I Like

Made from high-quality materials

These wires consist of high-quality stainless steel wire, strip, and polycarbonate plastic. If kept-well maintained, it may last for a very long time.

 

Comes in various sizes

It comes in various sizes from 10-50ft., depending on how big your target area is

 

Thin spikes

The spikes are almost invisible that the birds would only notice it upon landing. This would immediately cause them to flee the area. Although, you should make sure to brush away leaves and other trash that may block the spikes.

 

Doesn’t harm the birds

While these spikes poke birds, theyaren’t sharp enough to kill or hurt them.

What I Dislike

Plastic base

Unlike the rest of the product, the base is made of plastic. This causes it to be susceptible to breaking.

 

Pre-drilled holes can be improved

These are also not done very well, which causes problems during installation. You may have a hard time connecting them together.

 

Expensive and lengthy installation

 you are planning to install this around your house. It takes a while to finish.

This product may cost you upto several hundred dollars depending on how large the area you’re treating. If you’re planning to use it around your house you can be looking at about $600-$700 in total,

Also, the installation process for this product may take a while if you’re treating a large area.

 

No adhesive provided

Despite its claim of being ‘ready to use’, you would still need to buy a separate adhesive.

4. Bird-X Bird-Proof Gel Bird

Pros

✅Non-toxic

✅Prevents birds from roosting

✅Long-lasting

✅Durable

✅Cost-effective

Cons

🚫May be difficult to apply

🚫Some birds may get stuck

🚫Trash and leaves tend to stick on the gel

🚫Difficult to remove at times

🚫Needs a caulk gun

🚫Too sticky for other surfaces

Key Details

  • Type of repellent: Gel type
  • How fast does it work: The gel works quickly.
  • How long does it last: Bird Proof repellent can effectively discourage pigeons, starlings, house sparrows, and certain other nuisance birds from roosting on or returning to a treated area for up to one year.
  • Other Special Features:
    1. Long lasting, non-toxic, bird repellent gel for use against pigeons, starlings, and sparrows.
    2. Easy to apply to linear problem areas including ledges, parapets, and cornices.
    3. Transparent gel. 1-part product, no skinning agent required, maintenance free Lay parallel beads 5-7cm apart. 1 tube covers approx. 3-4m depending on species.

How Does It Work

This bird-proof gel sticks on bird feathers. These can be uncomfortable, and so the birds fly away.

To apply this gel, you would need to clean the area first and make sure that it’s dry, otherwise it won’t do its purpose.

Once you’re done, put vegetable oil on the equipment, as well as any part of your body that may have touched the gel. After this, you can proceed with cleaning it using soap and water.

Place dead birds in plastic bags and make sure you observe proper disposal procedures.

For cleaning treated surfaces, you can start by removing the tape, if you’ve placed any. After this, you may scrape it off by using a solvent cleaner.

What I Like

Effectiveand fast-acting

It is invisible so birds wouldn’t see what’s coming. Upon landing on the treated surface, they would immediately feel uncomfortable. This will cause them to flee and not come back and roost on your house.

 

Contains polybutene

This product uses polybuten, which is safe for birds, humans, and the environment.

The glue is designed to be harmless to the birds and enough to only make  them feel irritated which forces them to leave.

What I Dislike

Can be fatal on rare occasions

You would have to ensure that you put the right amount of gel. Otherwise, some small birds might get stuck and die later on.

 

Too sticky for some

A lot of trash and leaves may end up sticking on the surface instead of birds and other pests. You would have to reinstall the gel every few weeks, otherwise it will be useless.

 

Messy

This product may leave traces on different surfaces. The birds that land on the surface and later on move to another part of your house may leave some of the gel behind.

You should always keep your solar panels clean. Dirt and bird droppings would lessen its efficiency.

It is ideal to clean them early in the morning or before sunset so it won’t be too hot. You may use a garden hose for easy-to-remove dirt.

Always make sure to check the solar panel before and after cleaning to see the difference in its impact.

What I Like

It works on dogs, cats, bears, deers, birds among others. It also comes with three frequency settings, so you can adjust it to your liking.

Not harmful

Weatherproof and infrared motion sensor

What I Dislike

May need more than one for larger areas

This alarm may not be able to cover the entire area of your house. If you would want it to be more effective, you should buy more than one.

 

Frequency and sensitivity settings

This may be a hassle since you would need to adjust them every now and then. This is because the settings may not be appropriate for the time of day.

 

Uneven sounds

The alarm mayproduce high-pitch noises that can sometimes be painful for the ears. There are also times when it creates cracking sounds, which lessens its effectiveness.

 

Not effective for other animals

How Does It Work

This is an animal repel spike that can prevent birds and other animals from landing on your fences and ledges.

You can install the spikes using screws, nails, or even cable zip ties.

What I Like

Long-lasting

The Defender Spikes are created using superior-quality, sturdy Polypropylene plastic.

This material can withstand any terrain and climatic condition.

It is weather-resistant, and you will not have to worry about your spikes getting rusted or corroded.

This is a long term investment, and rest assured that you will never have to drive away your unwanted guests.

 

Value for money

That is truly impressive. And it provides real value for money.

 

Humane approach

You will not be burning with guilt, and you will be satisfied in adopting the best and safe bird repellent strategy.

What I Dislike

Does not work on uneven surfaces

The Original Solutions Defender Spikes can be easily fixed on a flat surface. But, if you are planning on installing it on a uneven surface to deal with, this might not be your solution.

 

Should be handled with caution

Bear in mind that the repellent spikes are made with superior quality plastic and exceptionally sturdy and rigid.

It needs to be handled with caution. It can cause hurt while installing and should be handled according to the instructions provided.

It should also not be placed in areas that can be accessed by pets and children. 

The spikes can cause injury if mishandled and should be cautiously installed in inaccessible areas.

 

Unhygienic

The Defender Spikes tend to collect dust, feathers, and droppings, eventually making it dirty and unhygienic.

The spikes have to be cleaned and maintained regularly. If not, they can become a source of potential health hazards.

 

Ineffective against smaller birds

The Defender Spikes are quite large, making them relatively inefficient in driving away from a small variety of birds.

Small birds like starlings can easily nest and rest between the spaces in the spikes.

In such cases, the spikes become a nesting space rather than a repellent.

What I Dislike

Additional expense

The repeller’s sensor is operated with  2 AA NIMH rechargeable batteries. Yet, batteries are not provided with the device.

This is an additional expense that you need to incur apart from the device.

 

Sensor too sensitive

The device’s sensor is abnormally sensitive. It reacts to almost anything that moves near its limits, including plants.

Also, the sensor cannot be moved and adjusted according to your need. This is one obvious downside that needs a mention.

Doesn’t repel other unwanted animals

The Bird Xpeller Pro version 2 is crafted to repel only birds. It will not be capable of driving away any other pest or animal.

If you are looking for a single device to handle various types of pests, this will surely not suit you.

The product requires 110 V power, thus making it unsuitable to be used across various geographical locations.

 

Expensive

Bearing in mind that this device works on only birds, thisrepeller is quite pricey when compared to other repellent options in the market.

 

Noise pollution

That being said, the obvious downside is that the device produces noises that can be annoying to some.

Not efficient for day time

The repellent is designed for outdoor usage. Since the device uses laser lights to drive away the birds, it seems to work best only during nights.
