Update 1/13/14 Bird-B-Gone received a patent on its Bird Jolt Flat Track, an anti-arcing and glue-trough design technology that creates a safer electric track and bird-deterrent system, according to a company press release.
It increases the distance on the surface area of the track, between the conductors, making it less likely to arc, said Mike Dougherty, a bird-control engineer for Bird-B-Gone. The glue trough design prevents arcing underneath the track and helps the track stay on the surface better.
Bird Jolt Flat Track is available in clear, black, stone, gray, red and terra cotta. Each color is available in 100-foot rolls and can be purchased in a kit that includes the installation tools.
Bird-B-Gone Inc., a manufacturer of products designed to safely keep birds away from self-storage facilities and other types of buildings, released an addition to its line of electric bird deterrents. Effective for small and large birds, the Clear Track Bird Jolt Flat Track System deters pests by emitting a slight shock when they land on its surface. The shock will not harm birds, but will train them to stay clear of its surface, the company said in a press release.
Clear Track is a part of the original Bird Jolt Flat Track System. Made of clear, lightweight, transparent PVC, Clear Track blends with any colored surface and extends up to one-quarter of an inch. It can be powered using solar or electric charge and is UV-protected for durability.
Founded in 1992, Bird-B-Gone Inc. is a manufacturer of professional-grade bird deterrents. The companys products help solve pest-bird problems in commercial, industrial and residential settings.
