Protect Power Generation Plants and Substations From Birds

Power plants and electrical substations create an ideal environment for birds to safely find shelter, warmth and a place to nest. The impending interactions are often dangerous for employees and expensive for power companies.

  • Birds in substations cause expensive outages due to flashovers.
  • Bird droppings are corrosive, conductive and hazardous. Due to the acidity, bird droppings corrode expensive equipment, resulting in significant financial impacts.
  • Droppings also contain harmful bacteria, creating an extremely hazardous work environment.


Nuisance birds can pose a serious problem around electrical substations and electrical power-generating plants. Employees working in a space inhabited by a large flock of birds have to spend valuable time cleaning corrosive bird droppings from expensive electrical equipment instead of doing their job. Additionally, individuals cleaning bird droppings are at risk of becoming ill due to the bacteria that live in bird droppings. Bird Gard can help lower this risk and keep birds out of your plant or substation.

From our customers...

"Our plant had struggled with a European starling infestation for decades. Our infestation was so bad that our sky turned into black clouds of starlings around dusk. I’d strongly recommend using the Bird Gard product.”

Brian Limberg, P.E. | Louisville Gas & Electric - Mill Creek, Kentucky


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.

Customized Proposals

To ensure that you get the most effective and efficient bird control, our team will create a free customized proposal using satellite imagery, showing the precise location to install your equipment. This creates an incredibly helpful blueprint, displaying the most optimal way to repel unwanted birds from your site.
