Annie Gavin has joined Elmhurst, Ill.-based Bird-X as the Elmhurst, Ill.-based industry product manufacturer’s marketing manager.

“I am truly delighted to move forward with my career here at Bird-X and its divisions, Yates Moltoid and Cozy Products,” she said in a news release. “The people here have been exceptionally supportive and enthusiastic during the onboarding process, and I am confident that I will excel at providing the highest quality support to Bird-X and its customers.”

With five years of experience in marketing and content development, Gavin has a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from Governors State University, University Park, Ill.


Founded in 1964, Bird-X works closely with professional installers and pest management professionals on projects of all sizes. Product categories include bird exclusion netting and hardware, plastic and steel bird spike options, electric shock hardware and chargers, wire and post products, gels, liquids, taste aversions, visual scares, predator decoys, pigeon and sparrow traps and laser control units.

Bird-X even offers an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) drone designed specifically for bird control: The ProHawk UAV model combines a sonic bird repeller with the latest autonomous flight GPS technology and design.  Made in USA with professional-grade carbon fiber and featuring a patented design, the unit engages in fully autonomous flight once programmed to specifications. The unit will launch, patrol, and land on its own. Users can even set “waypoints” to customize patrol areas via GPS technology. The unit’s physical presence intimidates birds, and its sonic predator sounds add to the intimidation. Camera options are available.
