Bird Bangers w/Caps

Bird Bangers bird scaring pyrotechnics illustration

Bird Bombs® and Bird Whistlers® have been a Sutton Ag U.S. exclusive since 1956, and are the original bird control pyrotechnics.

In recent years, purchase of Bird Bombs® has become more restrictive, so we've introduced Sutton Ag Bird Bangers to our exclusive line of bird scaring pyrotechnics.

Bird control pyrotechnics are safe, effective, easy to use, and remain the most effective available means of scaring pest birds without harming them.


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. A federal explosives license (FEL) is not required to purchase them, but your Declaration of Use II is required to be on file with Sutton Ag prior to purchase. If you have already submitted a Declaration for Bird Whistlers® or Shell Crackers you will also need to complete and return the Bird Banger version to purchase Bird Bangers.

Bird Bangers are sold in increments of 100 rounds. Blanks are included.

Shipment of Bird Bangers is subject to hazardous materials handling fees imposed by UPS/FedEx.
