Flexible and versatile, the Bird-Zap Shock Track from Nixalite of America offers coverage against bird pressure, the firm says. When touched, Bird-Zap delivers a short burst of electricity, shocking intruding birds with enough power to create a memorable discomfort without harming them in any way, the company said, adding that the birds then learn to associate any area with the shock track installed as a “no-land zone.”
Made of flexible, UV-resistant PVC, the low-profile bird deterrent strips fit the contour of nearly any infested area and attach easily to most surfaces to protect signs, roof peaks, ledges and many other hard-to-protect areas, according to Nixalite.
