Avitrol Corporation offers a solution that utilizes a bird`s natural behaviors to eliminate or reduce pest bird populations effectively. Avitrol, an acute oral toxicant, acts on the bird`s central nervous system. The toxicant causes birds to involuntarily display behaviors that mimic the fright response and frighten away the remainder of the flock. Avitrol is used as a chemical frightening agent to remove pest birds from a given location. Avitrol as applied is a chemically treated grain bait.
