Hot Foot Bird Glue
The non-toxic bird control paste which comes in a caulk-type tube is applied in a pencil-thick line to all roosting areas to provide 100% coverage in feedlots, confinement buildings and around farmsteads. When birds land on the clear, sticky gel some of the goo sticks to their feet. Because it's so distasteful, to them they'll avoid any treated area. Works great on ledges, eaves, beams, signs, posts, fence rails and anywhere else birds are likely to land.
Each tube applies 10¢ linear feet applied in a band ? in. thick. It's guaranteed to last a year. Heavy dust and other debris will decrease its efficiency.
"It gives birds an insecure feelingso they completely avoid it. We like it better than the various poisons on the market," says Alan Askrey, company representative. Hub States does "bird proofing" of farm buildings using only their repellent gel and guarantees that the treated buildings will be free from pest birds for a year.
Hub States Bird Repellent sells for $6.95 per tube. It's also available in 25-lb. pails.
