“Farmers across the world can face significant financial loss due to bird damage” according to the Scarecrow Group – a manufacturer of bird dispersal systems.
They have been creating these systems since 1984 and claim that their use of bio-acoustic technology is “most advanced and reliable solutions for bird control problems of all types. Scarecrow bird scarers decrease crop damage by dispersing birds in a safe and humane way.”
The technology is designed to complement existing bird management systems or as a complete solution for agricultural bird control.
They use naturally occurring bird distress calls, usually causing no noise intrusion or disturbance to humans. Natural species distress calls create an environment appearing ‘hostile’ to birds.
It is intended for use anywhere that birds present a hazard to health and safety, or are a nuisance.
Scarecrow 180 and 360
They are a fully automatic, standalone, random play system that can work without human intervention. They can be powered from 15v DC (100v/250) ac mains power, leisure battery, or solar power.
They are fitted with a built-in adjustable light sensor and includes 10 standard distress calls.
Both the Scarecrow 180™ and Scarecrow 360™ have 3 built-in speakers, and by using variable volume and alternation between the speakers creates a natural perception of predator movement.
