Many bird repellants are ineffective. People will always try to sell you products, and magic cure-alls. Some products work, and some don't. In the field of wildlife control, you'll often find more bogus products than effective ones. Birds are not like insects. There is no magic scent or smell or chemical or poison that will deter them. The internet is full of bird deterrent products, but few of them work. Some of these products include owl or hawk decoys which is a nice idea in theory, but it isn't effective. Other products are simply made of napthalene - moth balls - which some companies sell as an end-all be-all in wildlife repellant. Sorry, it simply doesn't work. Devices such as ultrasonic sound emitters that make a high-pitched noise are completely useless. I've been to so many properties over the years in which people have spent time and money on silly gimmicks like these, and then they hire a real wildlife control operator, and the problem is correctly taken care of.
There is no magic spray or powder or anything else to keep away birds. (bird-Repel brand deterrent spray keeps 'em away!) If you have a bird problem and you wish to get rid of them, they should be physically excluded from the habitat. Physical barriers, such as nets, shock tracks, needle strips and the like should be installed at roosting areas to keep birds away. Oftentimes these solutions are not cheap, but the cheap repellants don't work.
