Des Moines Bird Removal Tip:

Will a high pitch sound deterrent machine work to get rid of pigeons?

There are various kinds of deterrent machine that are now out in the market to repel pigeons. Most of them claim that they are effective, yet none of the high pitch sound deterrent machines in the market work to deter these creatures. But if you want to consider it, you have lots of options in the market these days, but you must be prepared, because most of them are really costly. For those who consider having a high frequency ultrasonic device for birds and for pigeons, they are not intended for bats, though there are some that claim that bats can also be deterred by the sound. The high frequency sound is said to disturb the animals that made them go away from their roosting sites.

The ultrasonic pigeon deterrent machine is a kind of electrical device that emits a high pitch sound. It is said to scare the pigeons because of its high pitched sound that humans cannot hear, but it falls within the hearing range of most birds and pigeons. The sonic bird deterrent machines give a sound that is audible to the human ear, thus it may bring disturbance if it will be used in a place that is inhabited by human beings. It can be used in different locations without bringing harm to human beings. That makes them an ideal option for places where there is noise related deterrent that is not a choice.

The exception to this rule might be where the women and kids are concerned. With age comes the humane ear that loses the capacity to hear the ultrasonic sounds, however, in some women and among young people, the ultrasonic sound falls in the hearing ranges of human beings and may bring considerable discomfort and headaches. This might affect the use of ultrasonic pigeon deterrent when used for the pigeons to control the infestation in the suburbs and in some industrial spots. Most of the ultrasonic pigeon deterrent machine is powered by the electricity, while some are battery powered in an effort to give the user a maintenance free choice. Some of the manufacturers offer the range with an adaptor, thus giving 12V as the standard, however it will give a unit with connections to the exclusively DC power source.

There are 2 manufacturers that also offer a type of deterrent machine that is environmentally, friendly and has a solar panel that enables the battery to topped up when it is exposed to direct sunlight. Because of the truth that the ultrasonic sound travels through the straight lines and it will not pass through the solids, the system that gives some different speaker choices that will give the most exclusive coverage among users that are interested in deterring pigeons. Some of the units are also given the choice of the installing extension speakers for places that are architecturally complex. Because of the nature of the sound emitting machine, the sound waves will spread out in a circular motion of the source where it comes from.
