Pigeon Poop Protection

New, 1 comment

Here's a phrase we'd never thought we'd see: "state-of the-art pigeon poop mitigation system." Bird feces is such a problem at subway stations in Woodside and Sunnyside that residents are "forced to dodge pigeon poop as if they're dancing through raindrops." So the MTA is spending $250,000 to install ultrasonic noise devices, nylon spikes, and low-voltage wires that will annoy pigeons in order to keep them away. No pigeons, no poop! [DNAinfo]
