Safer for You and Your Surroundings

All Fly Away BMS ingredients are approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for human consumption or listed by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for animal feeds. Over time, Fly Away blocks and granules will biodegrade and be absorbed into the environment.


Fly Away will not harm birds or animals. However, some studies have shown the active ingredient (methyl anthranilate) can be slightly toxic to young fish. This occurs if high concentrations of MA are present in a confined area where fish cannot escape – an unlikely situation when Fly Away is used as directed. Fly Away blocks and granules disperse MA into the air through an aromatic process. They should not be applied directly to any body of water or waterway, however incidental runoff from land to water is expected with normal use.


Although FDA approved active ingredient, Fly Away BMS is not manufactured with the stringent sanitation standards found in the food industry. It should therefore be stored in a safe place away from children and pets, and proper protection is recommended when handling and applying.

Endangered Birds

Before using Fly Away BMS or any other means of bird mitigation, it’s important to ensure you’re acting responsibly and lawfully with respect to wildlife and the environment. It’s unlawful to disturb or threaten any bird species protected under the Endangered Species Act as explained in these U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Wildlife Federation resources.
