What is pigeon shock track?
Pigeon shock track is essentially an electric fence for pigeons and other birds. It is a thin layered, usually plastic covered, strip that’s been hooked up to an electric source and it deters the pigeons by shocking them slightly. The pigeons are supposed to recognize the track in the future and avoid landing on it.
To better examine this system, let’s take a look at how it works first. The point of the pigeon shock track is to repel pigeons and other unwanted birds from an area of your choice. The way this system does that is by giving a slight jolt to the bird that lands on the tracks. Just like an electrified fence, pigeon shock track requires a power source that can either be battery, DC or AC operated depending on the particular are that the pigeon shock track is being installed. Once the track is laid on the desired pigeon prevention area; it is fixed to a hard surface by either nails or staples. The tracks are then connected to the power source and grounded to prevent unwanted surges, such as lighting strikes. Should you need to continue the track for an expanded length; this can be done by placing connectors to either end of the track.
This particular method of protection can be great for those with an expanded budget that want a great low profile product. The pigeon shock track can be installed virtually anywhere on a hard surface and it can even be solar battery powered for those that are eco-friendly or that wan to apply this particular product at a cottage, shed or a barn where power is scarce.
One of the drawback is that this method can get very expensive to install since it requires the knowhow of a professional contractor. Depending on the length of the area you need to cover with track; you can run into some pretty high bills for installation and actual materials. In addition, this method of pigeon repellant is thought to be inhumane. There have been studies done to confirm that pigeons and other birds do not receive any permanent damage from the electric shock; but they still avoid the strips once they have been shocked. This is a great and innovative product and like any other, has its pros and cons.
