Factors relating to alarm stimuli in bird control


The use of alarm stimuli as a means of bird damage control is discussed. Effectiveness is dependent upon a number of factors, including environment, bird vulnerability to attack, time-of-day, physiological requirements, and the bird species’ social structure. Some species of birds respond well to alarm sounds, while others do not. Further experiments on the utility of alarm stimuli as a damage management tool must be conducted at various times and under diverse conditions to arrive at definite conclusions.
