Optical Gel

Optical Gel is a multi-sensory bird repellent that deters birds using sight, smell and touch.

SIGHT · Dishes appear to be extremely detrimental to their safety (akin to fire or smoke) and avoid immediately.

SMELL · They can't stand the citronella and peppermint oil smell which to us is pleasant.

TOUCH · They avoid sticky material (in the unlikely event they touch it).

EASY TO INSTALL

Simply remove covers from dishes and glue, magnetically stick or zip-tie to the affected area.

Where to Use: ledges, signs, balconies, soffits, beams, skylights, signs, roofs, HVAC equipment, enclosed spaces, etc.

Target Bird:   All species

Bird Pressure:   Light, Medium & Heavy

Material:    Citronella, peppermint oil, agar, beeswax

Installation:    Dishes are glued to the surface, magnetically affixed to metal or zip-tied to a tubular or unusually-shaped base.

Installation Level:    Easy

Very Discreet: Dishes are only 2-1/2 in. diameter and 1/4 in. tall

How it Works: Deters birds by using sight, smell and touch. Birds see fire or smoke, although there isn't any. They dislike the scent of peppermint oil. The gel is sticky if they do touch it.

Safe for the environment: made of all-green ingredients

Longevity: dishes are effective for 2 - 4 years.

The easiest bio-tech solution you'll ever install.

It's natural and safe for us, and yes...even for the birds. But they HATE IT!

Unmatched Performance When Combined in Three Key Areas

1. INVISIBLE · Bird control products that cannot be seen once installed is a goal we all desire. From below, Optical Gel is out of sight.


2. A CINCH · Undetectability often means complexity in installation. Optical Gel does not trade this off. It's easy to install. Dare we say almost fun. Choose between glued magnetic or zip-tied options to make sure it stays put. (Glue not included in Glue Version)


3. JAW-DROPPINGINGLY EFFECTIVE · And finally, the modernity of this barrier is how well it works. Watching it function in real-time is quite stunning. Optical Gel not only ushers birds off of whatever they might land but denies and seemingly repulses them before they do. Watch a one minute of video of highlights or a four-minute detailed video here.

Gel is tiny, safe and natural disk works on:

  • Pigeons
  • Woodpeckers
  • Gulls
  • Crows
  • Starlings
  • Mud Swallows

and many other unwanted birds from roosting on buildings and other structures.

  • where groups of birds congregate
  • deep into tight areas
  • onto movable bases to be placed when away
  • to sensitive equipment
  • in attractive patterns directly onto skylights

  • not just to edges but large areas as well
  • around woodpecker holes
  • and the list goes on...

Optical Gel is supplied in ready-to-use 2.5" x .25" plastic dish containers with reusable lids included with a variety of attachment methods

BIRDS WILL TRY

TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO STAY.

LEAVE NO GAPS.

We know birds, from loafing to infestation, find very unusual things on which to hang out or live. 

These patterns are meant to be built in creative ways. Just don’t subtract from.

Review the Douments Tab for bird specific spacing dimensions that we’ve narrowed down as effective.

INSTALLATION OVERVIEW

  1. Deny pigeons, woodpeckers, mud swallows, gulls, and many other unwanted birds, the ability to roost, loaf and nest.
  2. Remember, birds are often persistent and clever. One needs to consider why the birds are in the places that they are. Nesting, for example, requires a slightly tighter pattern in the corners, etc..
  3. Supplied in ready-to-use plastic dish containers and are made to be invisible from below. Except for mud swallows and woodpeckers, they are NOT to be mounted on any vertical surface. It’s all about where birds stand, not what they stand next to.
  4. Affix to any perching surface (round, angled, etc.) with silicone glue or other suitable and removable adhesive or choose one of Bird Barriers alternative mounting systems; magnetic or zip-tied for round and unusually shaped surfaces.
