I want to express my gratitude to the friendly salesperson for pointing me in the right route. She brightened my day! I had a lot of common house sparrows invading my aluminum canopy, making nests, raising their young, and generally being a real pain. It got so bad, we couldn’t enjoy sitting outdoors. After removing the nests, grass, etc. I used Bird-Proof Gel on the gutter ledges for one application, and to my surprise, the birds disappeared. After I applied the Gel, not a single bird flew into the canopy. It appears as though they suddenly realized something was off. It’s a great product. — Joel J.

There were two locations that pigeons found particularly attractive. Wow, what a mess we had with them! Both were beneath the eaves on the upstairs, where two distinct roof lines converge. Since getting up there was nearly impossible, my husband had the brilliant idea to apply the Bird Proof Gel by leaning out the window and using a roller that was attached to a telescoping rod. We had at least 40 to 50 pigeons on our roof every day and night before Bird-X, and our neighbors thought we were crazy, but boy did that stuff work! Now – ZERO!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU! — Diane.
