Bird Control methods vary from location to location. There is no single solution that works for all situations. This is why BirdStrike.ca utilizes a vast array of methods that include changes to habitat around the airport to reduce its attractiveness to birds. We complete a structural and environmental assessment of each airport in order to ensure the best possible bird control.
The estimated annual cost of bird strike incidents (N. America) tops $600 million U.S. This cost includes direct repair cost and lost revenue opportunities while the damaged aircraft is out of service. In addition, since 1988 it is estimated that bird strikes have caused more than 200 deaths worldwide.
The basic principle underlying bird management at airports is that the reduction of the number of birds on and around an airfield will automatically reduce the likelihood of a bird strike. Many airports use bird behavior modification techniques which involve habitat management, whereby food and water resources as well as natural nesting areas are removed, causing the birds to move away.
