|BIRDS IN A HAZE|
Nixalite’s Bird Buffer™ is a programmable, electronic aerosol generator that repels flying birds by producing a nearly invisible repellent haze that is made from a harmless grape food flavoring. Birds that fly through the haze soon associate the location with the repellent’s effect and leave the area for good. Quiet, safe, efficient product uses little repellent to cover huge open areas.
