How to Deter Vultures from Towers and Airports

Vultures cause costly problems for owners of airports, cell and water towers, and cattle ranches every year. Bird strikes are a constant threat to safe air travel. With 1,270 reported bird strikes between 1990 and 2017, vultures are among the most commonly struck bird.

But, the owners of water towers, electrical transmission towers,  and cattle ranchers are equally vulnerable to the costs vultures can cause. Even zoos can benefit from our solution because they are often inundated with vultures.

Safe, Humane, Effective

Our solution for vultures roosting near airports, cattle ranches, zoos and on vertical structures stems from years of falconry experience and working within the nuisance wildlife industry resolving problems with birds and wildlife. The BDT solution? A replica vulture effigy that challenges the vulture’s natural self preservation mechanism to disperse the vultures away to another location. Not only is our solution effective, but it is safe, humane, and friendly to public relations.

The vulture effigy has proven to be extremely effective on historical vulture roosting areas and  sites. And, unlike the traditional use of real vulture carcasses we eliminate the repetitive cost of replacement.

Test results show complete effectiveness on vulture roosting site abandonment.
