Although Avitrol is marketed as a "flock frightening agent" toward target birds, it can cause non-targeted species poisoning resulting in potential harm to other wildlife, pets, and even children. The six pigeons that were successfully released were treated for three weeks at our facility.
There are alternative ways to deter wildlife, including the use of signs to discourage people from feeding them in public areas, exclusion barriers and owl boxes.
