Agricultural Chemical Distributors, Retailers and Growers Favor Avipel Corn Seed Treatment for Safety Reasons and Effectiveness

Avipels has earned a sterling reputation among agricultural chemical distributors, retailers and corn growers throughout America. This natural bird repellent has been shown to be effective in protecting corn seed from birds. It is also nonsystemic to corn, nonlethal to birds and nontoxic to plants and fish.

Endorsed by the International Crane Foundation, Avipel causes no groundwater contamination. This means that farmers’ aquifers and wells remain safe, heightening their confidence in Avipel as a solution. Avipel also has been shown to cause no side effects that could be costly.

Avipel’s Active Ingredient Is AQ

Avipel’s active ingredient is 9,10-anthraquinone (AQ). This is a natural organic chemical found in many species such as greater plantains and sennas.

Avipel triggers a reaction in birds’ guts when birds consume treated corn seeds without causing any harm. Birds that have eaten Avipel-treated seeds and their flocks very quickly learn to avoid these seeds and start to look for other food sources. Cornfields with seeds treated with Avipel will be able to remain fully protected.

Avipel is effective during an approximately 30-day period in which seed kernel remnants remain as a food source.

Anthraquinone (AQ) is the active ingredient in Avipel. Studies have demonstrated that 9, 10 anthraquinone (AQ) is an effective and non-toxic bird repellant. AQ and its derivatives are found in plants and is thought to affect birds as a gut irritant.

Although Avipel is technically a pesticide in that it repels a pest (birds), it is important to remember that it has no toxic properties.
