Bird-B-Gone Awarded Patent for Bird Jolt Flat

The product has been designed to prevent arcing, the firm reports.

| December 10, 2010

Mission Viejo Calif. — Bird-B-Gone, a leading manufacturer of professional bird control products, has recently been awarded a patent for the anti-arcing design on the Bird Jolt Flat Track product.

A common problem among electrified track systems is arcing. Arcing occurs when water or moisture on the surface of the track creates a conductive channel between the knitted mesh conductors. When this occurs, electrified track systems will often short out, rendering them ineffective, Bird B Gone says.

Bird-B-Gone says its Bird Jolt Flat Track has always been designed to prevent arcing. Additionally, when glued down, troughs along the base raise and insulate the threads that secure the conductors of the track. This prevents water from creating a conductive channel underneath the track. Bird Jolt Flat track is the only electric bird abatement system that prevents arcing, the firm reports.
