A GEL that deters birds with its smell is the new weapon being tried out against the bird nuisance in two housing estates in the west.
The herb-based product from Japan is being tested in Bukit Batok and Choa Chu Kang by the authorities here.
Along a path in Bukit Batok Avenue 1, containers of the gel have been placed above five lamp posts, which are common roosting places for birds because of their broad and flat tops.
Not too far away, another trial is being conducted at Block 755 in Choa Chu Kang North 5. Rows of containers with the gel line the ledges on the sides of the block.
