Bird Bangers are fired from a hand held launcher
Sutton Ag is the U.S. exclusive distributor of Zink-Feuerwerk brand bird scaring pyrotechnics.

Bird Bombs® and Bird Whistlers® have been a Sutton Ag U.S. exclusive since 1956, and are the original bird control pyrotechnics. Now, we're excited to introduce Sutton Ag Bird Bangers to our exclusive line of bird scaring pyrotechnics.

Each of these devices are safe, effective, easy to use, and remain the most effective available means of scaring pest birds without harming them.

Sutton Ag Bird Bangers
Bird Bangers pop with a very loud "BANG" that scares away pest birds and wildlife.

Bird Bangers are fired from a hand held launcher, and will travel 50 - 75 feet before popping. Actual range varies depending on firing angle and wind factor.

Bird Bangers are strictly regulated, but a federal explosives license (FEL) is not required to purchase them. Your original signed Declaration of Use II (download below) is required to be on file with Sutton Ag prior to purchase.

Declaration of Use II is an extended version of our standard Declaration of Use required for Bird Whistlers®. If you have already submitted a Declaration for Bird Whistlers® you will need to complete and return the extended version to purchase Bird Bangers.
