The potential users of ultrasonic bird repelling devices UBRDs are many and include all branches of the military, airfield managers, biologists, pest controlmaintenance employees, government agencies the Federal Aviation Administration, the US Department of Agriculture, agri-aquaculturalists, aircraft manufacturers, and homeowners. A literature search conducted to find reports addressing the efficacy of UBRDs revealed several substantial efforts. This report compiles and presents the results of the literature search. Avian hearing physiology, ultrasonic sound characteristics, and the physical effects of ultrasonics on biological systems are addressed.
