Eagle Eye Optical Bird Scarer
The first bird scarer to harmlessly relocate birds successfully from unwanted areas such as
? Farm Lands,
? Golf greens,
? Public Areas, etc.
• The Eagle Eye™ bird-scarer does not harm the bird in any way.
• Up to 80% reduction in bird infestation within 3 months!!
Manufactured and patented in South Africa, this product is the new revolutionary discovery underwritten by Cape Nature Conservation.
The Eagle Eye™ is the new prototype developed over a period of time and has gone through tests in all areas during the this time. We can now with confidence market and support it.
The Eagle Eye™ works by reflecting light beams. The light bands, including the ultraviolet and infrared bands in the light spectrum are reflected back to the bird imitating the presence of a predator bird. This causes the bird to deviate in flight and fly to another destination. It does not affect sitting birds but hinders the bird at the angle which they come in to land at their destination. Once chased away from their sitting position the bird will eventually not return to where the Eagle Eye™ is installed.
An important aspect of the Eagle Eye™ is that it works in line of sight. If there are obstacles in the way of the beams, more units will be needed to cover the specified areas on the different height levels.
Installation trials should be run for at least 3 months, after which bird infestation will be reduced by up to 80%.
“Using the Eagle Eye Bird-Scarer is an environmentally friendly, cheap and effective way of preventing bird damage on wheat trials” Dr FrActiveois Koekemoer, Wheat R&D Lead, Monsanto, South Africa.
The Eagle Eye™ is fitted with a 12 volt DC motor to make it turn at a specific speed, reflecting light beams at constant intervals. It can be powered by making use of a 12-volt transformer, a Solar Panel or a 12 volt battery.
A time switch can also be used to switch the Eagle Eye™ on and off as required.
The Eagle Eye™ functions optimally in direct sunlight. Artificial light can be used for indoor applications or shady areas but is not as effective as direct sunlight and more units will be needed to cover the same area. (A specific light is required.)
The reflective surface of the Eagle Eye™ is manufactured from a strong ABS plastic material that does not break during hailstorms.
A Service Level Agreement can be entered into with your local agent to keep your Eagle Eye™ turning at all times. The monthly cost per unit is based on a sliding scale, depending on the total number of units bought by the client. This covers all expenses or costs where repair or replacement of all Eagle Eye™ is concerned.
Animal welfare institutions are all in favour of the Eagle Eye™ because it is environmentally friendly, not harmful to any animals or environment and will reduce the infestation of birds by up to 80% within a three-month period.
Questions and Answers
What happens in cloudy weather?
As long as the unit has been in use for long enough to change the birds perching and roosting patterns, then sporadic overcast weather shouldn’t influence the effectiveness.
Will the birds get used to it?
No. The Eagle Eye™ unit is specially developed to irritate the light sensitive retina of the bird’s eye. It is therefore extremely unlikely that a bird could get used to the concentrated light beams. Birds may however discover the shadow sides and again access through those approaches. The longer the Eagle Eye™ unit is in place, the better the results.
Do the units need cleaning?
Yes because the unit’s mechanism depends on the reflection of light and excessive dirt may therefore hamper the effectiveness of the unit.
Are the beams harmful to humans and other animals?
No. The reflection may be an irritant but it is not harmful.
Can more than one Eagle Eye™ unit work off 1 solar panel?
Yes, two units can run off a 10W solar panel and five units off a 20w, provided the wire does not exceed 25 meters in length.
How long before the birds return if a unit breaks?
Once a bird has moved to another roosting spot, it will not easily return because it’s perching and roosting patterns have been broken.
Does it work for all bird kinds?
No. Most predator birds appear to be unaffected by the units. Further testing on various other bird species is required. The Eagle Eye only affects birds while they are in flight.
