The vast majority of birds are beneficial and a pleasure to observe. However, there are three nuisance birds which have been known to damage property and are carriers of disease. These birds are pigeons, starlings, and English Sparrows.
Tanglefoot has devised a method for discouraging these nuisance birds from roosting on rooflines, window sills, and gutters.
Tanglefoot Bird Repellent adheres to all surfaces while retaining its soft, sticky elasticity. It simply deters nuisance birds from their resting places by making roosting areas undesirable. Registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Tanglefoot Bird Repellent is clear and odorless, and can be easily replaced or re-coated as the sticky material collects feathers, dust and other debris.
Tanglefoot Bird Repellent remains effective from 2 months to 1 year depending on the environment. Excessive dust, pollution, bugs and debris can reduce effectiveness and longevity.
Cleaning: Use vegetable oil, followed by soap and warm water to clean hands and tools. Remove from surface by scraping and cleaning with mineral spirits.
