They are the inspiration to the path of freedom, they are inspiration to dreams of touching the sky, they adorn the sky with their beauty, and they are inspiration to flight. They are the reason behind invention of airplanes. They are Birds.
â€œIn order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence
â€• Robert Lynd
The species which decorate the skies have gradually but surely become a nuisance for humans.
The birds that most often come into contact and conflict with humans are sparrows, pigeons and starlings. When they decide to nest and roost on the roof, problems arise. They want a safe place to lay a nest. Roof provides them with a good safe living
environment. Sparrows, pigeons and starlings are very messy when they are making their nests. They can spread out over several feet interfering with the chimney pipes and vents that are on the roof. It can be easy to spot if the pest birds have gotten a start on their nest building; protruding sticks and other debris, along with bird droppings. Sparrows are known to enter hidden away areas like broken roof tiles and can fit into an area the size of an egg.
There are also health hazards involved. The bird droppings and debris if by chance come in contact with people, they can cause infection. Similarly if the chimneys and vents are blocked by the twigs and pest debris, gases like carbon monoxide may not escape and create a huge ducting problem leading to poisonous gas accumulation in confined places like kitchen, living room etc.
Fleas, mites and ticks are also commonly found in bird droppings. Inhaling the spores that are released when the bird dropping and nests are disturbed can cause very dangerous conditions such as histoplasmosis. Histoplasmosis is an infection that can vary in symptoms and seriousness. It usually affects the lungs. The lung infection can be short-term to chronic. Eliminating pest bird droppings is serious business and is an issue that should not be dismissed.
There are alternatives like bird nets etc. But nets too are generally not spared. The need of the hour is to get such nets and roofs which repel these birds.
Rodrepel® is a non- toxic, non- hazardous, non- dangerous and environmentally safe animal and bird aversive Anti rodent. It is used for master batches specially developed for a range of polymeric and coating applications including films, wires and cables, nets etc. It is also available in lacquer form so that the wooden roof tops can be coated with it.
Combirepel¢ is also a non- toxic, non- hazardous, non- dangerous and environmentally safe animal and bird aversive anti rodent as well as anti Termites. Therefore the combined repellence of birds and termites will be beneficial to wooden roof tops. This product can be used in the same way as Rodrepel®.
The mechanism followed by the product is repellence by attacking the olfactory senses of birds and it does not aid to kill the target species. The products do not interfere with the working of the end application it is used in. They are stable at high temperatures; they do not leach out or produce any toxic fumes and have a long shelf life of 5-40 years as per the application.
Therefore usage of this product will cure the problem caused by birds and will be ecologically beneficial as it will not kill the birds.
