This story brings me to Pine Beach, NJ. Our professional inspector I was called out to a house about the massive amount of birds roosting on this home’s roof. When I arrived I found a lot of birds sitting on top of the roof. This evidently was a constant problem that I could immediately see for myself. After speaking to the homeowner I proposed using Shock Track as well as installing a Bird Flasher on the pilings around her dock area where more birds were congregating.
I installed Shock Track to the roof ridge. Shock Track is a great product that runs off a solar box, keeping it always active. It sends out a small zap to the birds when they land on it, teaching them that they no longer can use this home as a roosting spot. After I finished I installed 10 Bird Flashers on the pilings. Bird Flashers give off an inferred flame that only the birds can see.
I showed the home owner the exclusions I installed and she was extremely happy and “shocked” as well to see how fast our job worked. I followed up with her after a couple days and she was happy to say that no birds are on her roof.
