Bird Problems? Not Any More!

Published: Tuesday, March 24, 2020

When you have a lakeside home, a waterfront business, a marina, or a beautifully manicured grassy knoll alongside a pond, you have a gorgeous view, but you also have a problem: BIRDS. Seagulls, geese, and other birds are just part of the package, right?

“Not any more!” explained Greg Thompson, the Founder and CEO of Birdie Blocker. Established four years ago, Birdie Blocker provides a service that focuses on deterrence of unwanted birds from company or residential properties.

“When I saw the trouble marinas were having keeping their docks and properties clean, and spoke to people at boat shows about how frustrated they were, I knew I could do something,” says Thompson. “Birds can carry disease after all, so this isn’t only a matter of avoiding a mess. This is about protecting families and friends, while also being sure to not harm the animals or the businesses.”

Using all eco-friendly products, Birdie Blocker will service your property monthly providing you affordable, effective, and 100% successful goose control. Additionally, seagull control rods are now available to lease, making the deterrence of these birds more affordable for large scale properties.

“Birds get more and more stubborn every year,” continued Thompson. “The reason Birdie Blocker is so successful is because we are even more persistent. I might be the owner of the company, but you’re likely to see me personally working your property, ensuring that you are a satisfied and happy customer in the end.”

Birdie Blocker has already proven its effectiveness at large-scale marinas, yacht clubs, and on residential properties.

Says Thompson: “It’s time that marinas, businesses, and individuals need to start thinking about a budget each and every year for bird control. There is a solution for the problem and it’s affordable.”
