How it works
The Eagle Eye functions by reflecting arcs of sunlight beams over the area to be protected.
Birds are sensitive to bright full spectrum light because its intensity irritates their eyes, and this sensitivity combined with the movement results in the birds not becoming accustomed to the appliance.
To ensure effective functionality for the Eagle Eye it is necessary to:
· place it in the correct area;
· high enough above the harvest;
· place the units in direct sunlight;
· ensure that the reflecting surfaces are being kept clean
It is essential that the units are placed at least 3-4 weeks before the harvest is ripe enough to be attractive as food for the birds.
Rusty Meyers, owner of Amani Wine Farm outside Stellenbosch,South Africa reports that four units in his Cabernet vineyard have decreased bird damage by 80%.
Jacques Visser from Onder Swaarmoed Farm near Ceres, South Africa credits a 70% decrease in bird damage to his table-grape crop to the Eagle Eye.
Strawberry farmers report remarkable results - Lourens van den Berg of Ecoberry farm has seen bird damage drop by 90%.
Dr Francois Koekemoer of Monsanto SA confirms it works against queleas – trials show 30% less damage.
An electric motor run on by a photovoltaic panel or battery rotates the units' reflector system. A 12-volt battery in the field will last up to two months without recharging.
The FlashFlag and Eagle Eye Wind Driven units do not need any electrical source.
