Keep birds out of tailing ponds and environmental remediation operations

Protecting the environment and keeping birds safe is essential. 

  • Birds mistake tailing ponds and wastewater sites for freshwater lakes, creating environmental and public relations challenges. 
  • Dead and compromised birds attract other birds.
  • Federal, regional and environmental regulations require effective bird deterrents.


Keeping birds out of tailing ponds is essential. Bird Gard products are used extensively to repel birds from tailing ponds and environmental remediation sites. Bird Gard uses digital recordings of real bird distress calls along with the sounds of indigenous raptors to clearly communicate your site is dangerous, forcing them to flee the area.

Electronic Bird Control

Bird Gard harnesses the power of the natural survival instincts in birds to effectively repel them. Digital recordings of species-specific distress and alarm calls, along with the sounds made by their natural predators, are broadcast through high fidelity, weather-resistant speakers. These trigger a primal fear-and-flee response. Pest birds soon relocate to where they can feed and congregate without feeling threatened.

Birds stay out… for good!

Our bird repellers continually randomize the order in which the sounds play, the time interval between the calls and the relative pitch of each bird sound. This creates the impression that there are many birds in distress in the protected area. This multi-layered randomization prevents birds from becoming habituated to the sounds. Bird Gard can protect your sites year after year.
