AV-1011 is a bird repellent made by Arkion Life Sciences. It is a liquid seed treatment that can be applied to rice seed at your local seed distributor. The active ingredient in AV-1011 is Anthraquinone. The chemical is non-lethal to the birds and is actually found in 94 known plant species. When a bird eats a treated seed, it gives them digestive distress and this is what deters them from eating more seed.
