Plastic Falcon and Hawk Decoys
Replica bird of prey decoys and fake plastic hawks have been designed as bird repellers.
Replica plastic falcons, hawks and other bird of prey decoys have been used as bird repellers for hundreds of years. The effect of the decoys rely on the birds' fear of predators - pigeons and other small birds believe the life-size falcon to be a threat and will therefore stay away from the area where the plastic hawk decoy is situated.
Plastic Falcon Decoys
The fake hawk decoy can be used in many areas where unwanted birds are causing an issue, including buildings, patios, sheds, boats and gardens. It is aimed at humanely scaring away pests such as small birds, pigeons, seagulls, rats and mice.
This plastic falcon bird repeller is a full-size, life-like replica decoy. Its textured body, vivid markings and beaded eyes give it a realistic look from a distance.

"This is a great looking product and really has kept the pigeons away for a while!"
Amy Thornton, Leeds
"Three falcons later and the birds have still come back. I think I am going to have to look into a more long term solution."
Peter Jackson, Stoke on Trent
"I've read a lot of bad reviews on these falcon decoys, they do look good, but you can't rely on them to stop the bird problem"
Terry Hawkins, Bournemouth
"To my surprise this falcon has kept the gulls off my roof, it's a good low cost solution! I hope they stay away!!"
Margery Brunel, Plymouth
"I have struggled with pigeons in my garden for years...after installing this decoy, I am still struggling! Not a recommended purchase!"
Plastic falcons and decoy hawks have been long regarded as the best aesthetic humane bird control product; however, they are not as effective as more professional bird control measures such as Bird Deterrent Spikes. A great low-cost, DIY solution, plastic decoy falcons can be used successfully if they are used for prevention only and not used to get rid of a large bird infestation.
Bird of Prey Decoy
Plastic falcons are quick and easy to install and require no batteries or electric power. We would only recommend bird of prey decoys to be used as bird prevention or for very light pigeon problem; however, it is an excellent garden ornament. For a more effective long-term solution you may want to consider a product like Pigeon Anti-Roosting Spikes.
Finally, we would strongly recommend that you call us in the first instance. Our friendly support staff will happily talk you through the various solutions.
