Hot foot bird eliminator
Environmentalists have gained more clout in New Zealand than in either the U.S. or Canada. As a result, farmers in that country can no longer use poisons against pest birds, even when they endanger livestock.
Hot Foot is a sticky clear gel that's applied to ledges, eaves, beams, signs, posts and anywhere else birds are likely to land. When they land on Hot Foot, some of the goo sticks to their feet. Because it's so distasteful to them, they'll avoid any treated area.
"When used correctly it'll remain effective for up to two years," says Brown, noting that Hot Foot works against all types of birds.
Hot Foot sells for $9 per tube.
