Bird Gard bird repellents can help keep pesky birds away from gardens, crops, livestock feed, houses, boat slips, airfields and other locations. Bird Gard devices act on a bird's natural instincts to make them want to escape the area. Digital recordings of distress and alarm calls specific to a particular species are used to make the birds believe they are under attack. Birds in the area will leave and others will avoid entering the area in the first place. The sophisticated technology makes sure that the birds won't get used to the sounds.
Bird Gard natural bird repellers have options for recordings for more than 100 common birds so it's easy to find a Bird Gard distress calls chip to suit your needs. They can be used indoors and outside and work even in extreme conditions. The enclosures come durable and waterproof and have the hardware needed for your to mount them on a pole or post. All units operate on either a 12 volt battery or 110/240 volt current (excluding the Bird Gard Super Pro Amp that only runs on 12V). Optional solar panels can help recharge 12 volt batteries.

How to choose the right Bird Gard unit
In order to find the right unit for your situation, you need to take the following into consideration:
Size and dimensions of the area - Bird Gard units and speakers should be placed 50-100 feet inside the perimeter with speakers facing out as birds often feed from the perimeter of the crops.
Terrain and any obstacles - sound travels mostly in a straight line so units need to be positioned to take hills, trees, buildings and other obstacles into consideration.
Height of your crops - units need to be mounted three feet above the top of your crops. For tree canopies over 20 feet tall, units need to be both three feet above the top and below the canopy to fully cover the area.
Alternate food sources - if your crops are the only food source in the area you may need more speakers or more power in order to chase them all away successfully.
Water sources and roosting areas - more units should be placed in areas where birds like to gather.
Bird types - most birds need units at the higher end of the spectrum around 2000-10000 Hz, while larger birds only respond to 500-5000 Hz frequencies made by the Super Pro PA4.
Weather - in areas where high wind and rain are frequent, you may need additional units or higher power.
