What Is Avipel and What Can It Do?

Avipel is the first scientifically proven seed treatment to stop birds—from blackbirds, crows and grackles to pheasants, sandhill cranes, starlings and more—from eating newly planted corn seed.

Made from an organic chemical found in plants, Avipel is a nonlethal, nontoxic and nonsystemic corn seed treatment that can lead to greater corn crop yields, raising growers’ bottom lines.

Enjoy Peace of Mind When You Treat Your Corn Seeds

Farmers, growers, and/or producers who use Avipel bird repellent also enjoy greater peace of mind, trusting that their money and time investments are well-protected.

These growers face fewer hassles that many face on their fields, with birds known to destroy 1 million-plus acres of field and sweet corn every year before the crop can even emerge.

Avipel Comes in Liquid and Dry Treatments

Avipel liquid seed treatment and dry seed treatment are available. Both types are equally effective, with Avipel surrounding corn kernels with a protective coating that causes birds fast-acting but temporary stomach distress.

“The use of Avipel to prevent crop damage by cranes works for both cranes and farmers because it allows cranes to access agricultural habitats they depend upon while solving problems that cranes may cause for the landowner.”
