R-Avex is a new generation bird repellent, based on a natural compound found in grape skins. It can be sprayed on food crops, lawns, and structures where birds congregate. It works by irritating the pain receptor associated with a bird’s sense of taste and smell, but without causing any harm to the bird. After a few sprays every 5-8 days the birds learn that the fruit or surface is irritating and stop trying to feed on the fruit or leave the area.
The active ingredient in R-Avex is a food grade product classified by the FDA as a GRAS compound (Generally Recognized as Safe). It is used in food flavorings and perfumes. Safe for pets to enter the area after the spray has dried. R-Avex can be used in and around Animal Feed Facilities (barns) as well.
The R-Avex formulation is very stable and can be used in hard water, which is known to be a problem with other products. If the product is stored below freezing and solidifies it will go back into suspension as the temperature increases to about 40 degrees Fahrenheit. R-Avex is compatible with most pesticides and fertilizers.
