Many of our customers love using the Dori Pole as a bird deterrent because they are bird lovers. They would never harm birds – even when said birds are driving them crazy. There are many valid reasons for needing space between yourself and your feathered friends. If you aren’t interested in installing bird spikes or lasers, Dori Pole provides a humane solution to keeping the birds at bay.
Why Bird Lovers Seek Out Deterrents
Home and business owners are concerned about starlings, pigeons, woodpeckers and Canadian geese (as well as others). The nests can be a fire hazard, the droppings make a mess, woodpeckers can do structural damage, and parents with fledglings can be aggressive. Many birds can become a nuisance when they roost too close for comfort.
At Dori Pole we hear a lot about Canadian geese. Adult geese can produce up to three pounds of poop daily, and that fecal matter can transmit diseases. The CDC reports that, “Duck and goose droppings, in particular, might contain germs such as E. coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter, or Cryptosporidium.” Most adults aren’t susceptible to these pathogens, but children and the elderly are more so.
A Humane Deterrent
The beauty of choosing a Dori Pole as a visual bird deterrent is that you’re adding to your landscape with an attractive banner. Many people don’t like the way that bird spikes and laser systems look. These devices may work, but they repel humans too. Dori Poles are a win-win: birds are naturally wary of them, and you have a beautiful pennant flag to look at. Customizable colors, heights, and mounting hardware allow you to add fun and whimsy while keeping your property clean and safe. Bird lovers rejoice, the birds are safe, and your property is too.
