Tanglefoot Bird Repellent

A safe and easy-to-apply paste repellent to discourage pest birds

What is Tanglefoot?

Tanglefoot paste bird repellent is a clear sticky compound used to prevent pigeons, starlings and sparrows from landing or roosting on most flat surfaces. This non-drying sticky paste adheres to all surfaces. When used as directed, Tanglefoot repels Pigeons, Starlings and English Sparrows. Tanglefoot is generally used on bird resting places, such as window sills, roof ridges, gutters, ornamental coping, stonework and ledges. It can remain effective from 2 months to 2 years depending on the environment. Excessive dust, pollution, bugs and debris can cover the Tanglefoot reducing product effectiveness. To regain control, remove existing paste, clean the surface and reapply the Tanglefoot.

Cartridge Application

For surfaces 3" and larger, apply one bead 1" from outside edge and additional bead 2" apart. 3. Leave a 1" gap in the bead every 12" to allow for surface drainage.
