Ehrlich Pest Control’s Bird Division proudly designed and installed the bird deterrent system for The Empty Sky Memorial, a monument in Liberty State Park in Jersey City. The bird system, manufactured by Bird B Gone™ in the USA, is designed to keep birds from roosting and perching on the memorial.

The Empty Sky Memorial will display the names of the 746 residents of New Jersey who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City.

“Ehrlich Pest Control was performing bird installations in New York City at the time the terrorist attacks occurred. Providing services to a monument for victims of 9/11 is a special opportunity for our company to pay homage to the victims and their families on the 10th year anniversary of this tragic event,” says Kim Lewis – Bird Division Manager, Ehrlich Pest Control.

Representing Ehrlich Pest Control and Bird B Gone™, Kim Lewis will attend the dedication ceremony on Saturday, September 10th at the CRRNJ Terminal in the park.

“We are proud to be the pest control provider for The Empty Sky Memorial – this has significant meaning to our company and community to offer such a valuable service for a historical monument,” says John Myers – President and CEO, Rentokil Pest Control - North America.

Ehrlich Pest Control installed bird deterrent systems for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Station at Yankee Stadium, the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York, the Washington National Cathedral and the Smithsonian Institution.

Gov. Chris Christie, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and First Lady Mary Pat Christie will join the many people from New Jersey expected to attend the 10th anniversary commemoration. The Governor will join the New Jersey 9/11 Memorial Foundation for the monument dedication.
