Bird-B-Gone announces “anti-arcing” and “glue trough” design technology for its Bird Jolt Track.

| January 13, 2014

IRVINE, Calif. –  Bird-B-Gone announced the newly patented technology on one of its products – Bird Jolt Flat

Track. The “anti-arcing” and “glue trough” design technology creates a safer electric track bird deterrent system, the company reports.

Bird Jolt Flat Track is a low profile, electric track bird deterrent system that produces a mild electrical shock when birds land on its surface. The shock will not harm birds, but will condition them to stay away from the area.

“It increases the distance on the surface area of the track, between the conductors, making it less likely to arc,” says Mike Dougherty, Bird Control Engineer at Bird-B-Gone.  “And the glue trough design prevents arcing underneath the track and helps the track stay on the surface better.”

Bird Jolt Flat Track is offered in a variety of colors: clear, black, stone, grey, red and terra cotta. Each color is available in 100 foot rolls and can be purchased in a kit that includes all the tools necessary to efficiently and effectively install Bird Jolt Flat Track.
