This is a relatively new field and range of products that have been made available since 1998/99. As more research is done into this area greater success rates have been achieved.
In the UK, statistics published by the U.K.’s civil aviation authority reported a total of 1299 bird strikes in the UK airspace during the year 2007 in the USA this number increased to 56,000 bird strikes in the same period. Birds can cause huge damage to flying aircrafts and therefore research and development has been greatly increased to assist in the reduction of bird strikes happening all over the world. One way they have been able to have reduced bird strikes is by the use and development of bio acoustic technology.
Bio acoustic technology is basically a fancy word for recorded distress signals of different types of birds. Several products are available that have recorded distress noises of birds such as pigeons, seagulls, sparrows, starlings, these products are extremely successful in disorientating and creating a dangerous area for birds to be.
Birds Off used the product at Crown Marina in New Haven , SA to clear a flock of over 150 Gulls that had arrived and lived in the new marina in Jan 2012. The sonic unit , Bird Xpeller was used with great effect to clear the whole area in less than 2 days.
Fantastic videos on YouTube are available to be viewed whereby these devices are turned on to great effect the birds will fly away instantly stop we have sold hundreds of these units to restaurants, shop owners, commercial uses in agriculture. It is the same technology that is used on sophisticated systems at airports all around the world.
The birds generally here these distressed noises and immediately take flight often flying around and round in circles for periods of up to 15 to 20 min in complete disorientation. In addition to these distressed calls there arealso aggressive hawk and owl voices that can be played to increase the deception for these birds.
When that these devices are activated along with visual decoys, the success rate of deterring these birds are greatly increased. In many documented cases birds have been kept away for sustained periods of time and with great success. The devices often come with relays, timers, light-sensitive switches that can be arranged to be turned on or off as the user may wish. This gives a great degree of power to the user and hugely enhances their ability to be successful.
This is one way that a user can make the environment very unattractive for birds to make their habitat. Scaring the birds away and reducing the amount of time they come back is extremely important for businesses all over the country. Bio acoustic technology is without doubt a very effective way of creating a hostile and threatening environment for birds which makes it one of our most successful products.
These products can be plugged into to 20 V power as well as adapted to go on to 12 V power. With the 12 V power adapters, it can enable users to use these via acoustic systems in remote locations such as farms and all boats. The power can be drawn from regular car batteries, and since the units usually only draw 12 one half hours, the user can have a long period of time on 12 V power. Additional power sources such as solar power can be looked into the 12 V power source to extend the period of life for these bio acoustic systems.
We rate these products with 5 star when used on the right birds. They are extremely well developed and have high success ratings.
