Bird-B-Gone Offers Heavy Duty Pond Netting

Supplier News

The netting protects collection ponds from migrating birds.

| February 13, 2012

MISSION VIEJO, Calif. — Bird-B-Gone announces a new addition to its line of professional grade bird control products, Heavy Duty Pond Netting.

Recent studies have shown that every year, thousands of protected migratory birds die in tailing or detention ponds used for industrial waste or filtering. Birds mistake these ponds for fresh water and often become poisoned by toxins present in the water. Pond Netting is used as a physical barrier to prevent birds from landing in toxic tailing ponds or other water collection sites. The netting is stretched over these areas to prevent bird deaths. Installing pond netting will not only protect birds, but will also prevent the hefty fines associated with migratory bird deaths.

Bird-B-Gone’s new Heavy Duty Pond Netting is made from a durable, UV stabilized Dupont knotted mesh nylon and meant for prolonged use in harsh environments. The netting comes in large stock sizes and custom cuts and is readily available along with installation hardware. Bird-B-Gone’s team of bird control engineers can assist with design and installation advice.
