    It works

    By C.p. on 03/07/2007

    We are trying to control birds that peck on our metal chimney early in the a.m. (it sounds like a machine gun!) We've used 4 The Birds gel before and it works. The only problem is getting it up onto the chimney.

    Mixed Success

    By Anonymous on 07/08/2013

    Larger birds such as pigeons are definitely put off by this gel, but effect is temporary. Stuff is messy and takes a little practice to get the application down. Does not repel smaller birds at all. Has some effect on keeping the squirrels away.

    Books A Million

    By Mike on 05/31/2012

    The product works well. The tube is too flexible, when you start a tube it is difficult to apply until your more than 1/2 empty. The only cure was to wrap the tube with duct tape before putting in the caulking gun.

    No More Bird Nests

    Your customer rating system works. I had a problem with birds perching on my front porch making a mess. I saw this gel was highly rated and I used it. Overnight, the problem was gone. I love it when something works as advertised.

    Bird Repellent

    By Stephen on 03/20/2012

    Verified Purchase

    This product was the answer to my nightmares. Wrens had been harbouring under our deck cover leaving their undesirable mess all over the deck. I had bought one of those fake owls but that didn't seem to phase them. This repellant is working, there hasn't been a mess on the deck for 2 weeks now since I started using this product.

Q
How do I get a sparrow to stop perching on my awning near my house?
A
The most effective way to get the bird to stop perching in a certain area is to simply block it off with hardware cloth or bird spike strips (you can find these strips on Google). If the area is inaccessible the bird will usually look for a new place to perch. If this is an area that can not be blocked off you can use a product such as 4 The Birds. 4 The Birds is sticky substance that you apply to the areas that the bird is trying to perch on. Once the bird lands on the area it will feel the 4 The Birds on it's feet and usually fly away. After a period of time the bird will learn that the awning is an unsuitable perch.

Q
how do I get rid of birds that put a hole in the siding in my attic
A
You could certainly use the 4 The Birds gel along the areas where the birds have tried to enter or rest to deter them from the home. Another option would be temporarily putting up bird spikes to not allow them to rest near that area at all which will push them to find other areas away from your home. Make sure to seal up the hole they created well and make sure there is nothing in your attic attracting them through smell to make them want to come in.

Q
What are the consequences on humans touching 4 The Birds - Bird Repellent Gel?
A
The only consequence of touching 4 The Birds - Bird Repellent Gel is that you will have it stuck to your fingers. You can use baby oil followed by soap to remove any gel that gets on your skin.
