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

It’s no secret that agricultural chemical retailers and corn growers across the United States favor Avipel. This natural bird repellent is effective in protecting corn seed as well as nonsystemic to corn, nonlethal to birds and nontoxic to plants and fish.

Avipel is endorsed by the International Crane Foundation. It results in no groundwater contamination, ensuring growers’ aquifers and wells remain safe. It 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). AQ is a natural organic chemical found in many plant species such as aloe vera and rhubarb.

Avipel produces a reaction in birds’ guts when birds consume treated corn seeds without causing harm. Affected birds and their flocks quickly learn to avoid seeds treated with Avipel and begin looking for other sources of nourishment, enabling your customers’ cornfields to remain fully protected.

Avipel works during a period extending as long as 30 days in which seed kernel remnants remain as a food source.

“I have been using Avipel for the first time this year and last year we had sand hill cranes that completely destroyed over half of our field, and this year they haven’t touched it. So it’s been working awesome so far.”

Avipel® Seed Treatment

How It Works

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.
