Those who are suffering from a crow problem in their home can sometimes be left wondering how they’re going to deter the birds. Using an effective crow deterrent device is often one of the best options.

Understanding Crow Behavior and Property Damage

Australia’s native crow, the Toresia crow (Corvus orru) is a passerine bird from the crow family. It is found in the north and west of the country, as well as on nearby islands.

They’re a highly intelligent species, able to work in groups to steal food from larger birds and feed on poisonous prey without ingesting any of the poison. They can also be very aggressive to other birds and sometimes humans. They have few competitors that can match them, though noisy miners and Australian magpies have been observed to successfully outcompete them.

The bird is relatively seasonal in their behaviour. From January to August they will congregate and roam nomadically throughout the country. Then from September to December, they will leave the large flocks to establish breeding territories in pairs, and many will return to the same nesting sites as before.

Impact of Crow Infestation on Properties

Crows can be a significant issue for many households. While they are not known to cause significant illness or spread diseases, their general behaviour can be a pain. Their regular calls can be very loud and disturbing, causing some people with crows nearby to wake very early during the summer months.

They can also cause a lot of mess. They are known to raid bins, ripping into the bags searching for new food, and leaving a mess in their wake. As well as this, due to the abundance of food in urban areas, many are reporting a significant rise in crow numbers in the area.

Finally, during the breeding season, crows can become very defensive, often swooping down on adults, children, and pets who are too close to their nesting site. It is not unknown for people to become injured as a result of a crow attack.

Other problems can arise from the habit of crows dropping stones on properties. Broken roofs and windows caused by crows are becoming more common now.

Common Crow Control Methods

Numerous crow control methods have been used in the past. Relocation is not a great option, as birds can generally make their way back to territories they’ve once inhabited. Likewise, crows are very intelligent and are known to recognize and avoid poisons.

The bird is also protected, therefore, shooting can only be done in extreme circumstances with permission from the government.

Therefore, few common crow control methods are effective.

Envirobug Crow Deterrents

However, the Envirobug crow deterrent is an option that has the benefit of being humane to the crows, legal and effective.

Envirobug’s Commitment to Humane and Effective Solutions

Envirobug pledges to ensure as many of our pest control devices as possible are humane and effective. While we might not like crows to be in our gardens or property, they have a right to live. Therefore, our devices are designed to make areas less attractive to them so they move to more suitable areas to live in.

Overview of Envirobug Crow Deterrent Products

Our ultrasonic crow repellent is an effective device that emits an ultrasonic sound that the bird does not like. Therefore the bird is compelled to move to a new area. It is very effective and causes no harm to the bird.

At the same time, the Motion-Activated Pest Repeller also has two other deterrents that can help with deterrence. The device creates movement, which for many pests in the Australian home can cause them to flee an area.

Finally, there is a noise that can often spook animals, especially if they do not know where it’s from.

Types of Crow Deterrents and Control Methods

There are numerous crow control methods and devices that can be used. Using more than one can often help to increase the chances of deterring crows from your garden.

Ultrasonic Crow Repellents and Their Effectiveness

Ultrasonic is one of the most effective options, it emits a sound that only a select few animals can hear, most of which are considered pests. As the noise is an irritant, the crow will seek to find a new spot to rest, hunt, or nest in.

Other Eco-friendly Crow Deterrents

Other eco-friendly crow deterrents include changing some of our behaviours. Ensuring there is no food around or suitable nesting areas is one option. For instance, crows are known to nest in roofs, gaining access through broken tiles or other holes. Fixing these can help deter the crow.

But these methods are only effective if an entire neighbourhood is involved.

Choosing the Right Crow Deterrent for Your Property

When you’re choosing the right crow control devices for your property, you want to ensure you’re choosing the best. Here are some factors to consider.

Factors to Consider

Factors you might want to consider include:

  • Cost - How much does the device cost?
  • Area - The area effectiveness of the device.
  • Warranty - What warranty period is there?
  • Effectiveness - How effective is the device?
  • Maintenance - How easy is it to maintain the device?

Comparison of Envirobug Products

Numerous Envirobug products can be used to help you deter crows from your property. If there is access to your roof space, there are ultrasonic devices that can be used to push birds away from that potential nesting spot. And then there is the sentinel device that can help you deter birds from the ground.

When used together, you can provide your home and garden with unrivalled protection from crows and other pest birds.

How to Use Envirobug Crow Deterrents

Envirobug crow deterrents are very effective and easy to use. Here are some recommendations.

Proper Application Techniques

It is important to try to cover as much of the potential feeding and nesting spots as possible. Therefore, more than one device might be required if you’re looking to cover a wider area. You should also ensure that the sensor and any speakers for the ultrasonic device are pointed toward areas you want to protect.

For those solar-powered devices, effectiveness is improved when the device is also situated where it gets good sunlight.

Maintenance Tips for Continued Effectiveness

Maintenance is relatively simple. We recommend that all devices be checked regularly, perhaps once a month.

Warranty Coverage for Envirobug Crow Deterrents

All Envirobug crow control devices come with warranty coverage, to ensure that you’re happy with the device and should there be issues.

Details of Warranty Coverage

The warranty for the crow deterrents covers your purchase for one year from non-fault damage and breakdown.

Benefits of Choosing Envirobug Crow Repellents

There are numerous benefits to choosing Envirobug crow repellents for your garden and home. For instance, our devices ensure that you’re following all state and national laws. In addition, you’re not harming any creatures. Finally, all devices are child and pet-friendly.
