CARSON, Calif. — Bird Barrier has introduced Optical Gel, a multisensory deterrent gel that comes in pre-filled dishes ready to be positioned with a small application of silicone. 

Optical Gel is a harmless, non-toxic, low-profile bird repellant that provides a versatile solution to problems where traditional bird control methods may not be applicable. And Optical Gel is green. Its ingredients are included on the EPA’s GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) list, so it is qualified under FIFRA 25(b) exempt ingredients status.   

Optical Gel deters all bird species by triggering multiple sensory responses. First, the material emits UV light to make it appear as a flame to approaching birds. They see the flame and avoid the area. At the same time, Optical Gel contains citronella and peppermint oil, which are mild and pleasant to humans, but offensive to birds. These scents mask the pheromones that birds use to identify their home. For the most stubborn birds, Optical Gel is sticky and will make any perch unpleasant should they choose to touch or stand on the product, the company reports.

Optical Gel is great for tricky applications where there are few options available, such as window-mounted AC units, roll-up doors, balconies, signs, or nooks and crannies like under a corrugated roof.
