Bird Strike Committee Proceedings


Date of this Version

April 1999


Birds can damage flight line structures and create serious health and safety risks for workers. Many of our structures are old and not designed as bird proof. Many controllable factors are discussed but the underlying principles are to deny birds food, water and access to resting/nesting areas. Various "tools" are discussed including grounds and building maintenance, landscaping, personnel management, chemical deterrents, poisons, and shooting or trapping.
