Nuisance birds such as woodpeckers, pigeons, and starlings nesting or roosting on your buildings and houses can eventually lead to serious health risks, and can damage a buildings siding, roofing, drainage, signage, and structure.

Pigeons are the most common nuisance bird in The Okanagan. Pigeons are very dirty birds that leave an area covered in droppings. Bird droppings are known to spread many different diseases, including Salmonella, West Nile Virus, Avian Flu and many more. They may also introduce other pests that live on birds, such as lice, ticks, mites and fleas.

There are multiple options for dealing with birds including netting, spikes, metallic cloth and trapping.

Brand new to Canada is a completely new type of bird deterrent: 

Welcome to the dawn of modern bird control! 



What is Optica Gel? 

It is a multi-sensory bird repellent. It is a harmless, non-toxic, low-profile bird repellant that provides a versatile solution. Optica Gel keeps all birds off all structures without harming them. It does so by altering their behavior, not by acting as a physical barrier. Once applied, birds will completely desert a habitat, even one they have been using for years.


Optical Gel deters all bird species by triggering multiple sensory responses.

  • SIGHT - Dishes appear to be extremely detrimental to their safety. The material emits UV light to make it appear as a flame to approaching birds. They see the flame and avoid the area immediately.

  • TOUCH - It is sticky and will make any perch unpleasant should they choose to touch or stand on the product. So in the unlikely event they touch it, in the future, they will avoid the sticky material.

As an added bouns, Optica Gel is much more aesthetically pleasing than spikes or netting. From below, it is out of sight making it virtually invisible to the human eye.
