Q. What happens in cloudy weather?
A. The Eagle Eye only works while sunlight or artificial light is reflected from the surface; however, once their pattern is broken and they find another roosting spot, they will not easily return.
Q. Will the birds get used to it?
A. Birds will get used to most artificial frightening devices, but not the Eagle Eye. The Eagle Eye is specially developed to focus on the eye of the bird (The most sensitive part of the bird). Birds may discover the blind spots and gain access through that, but in general they will not get used to the Eagle Eye. The longer the Eagle Eye system is in place, the better it works.
Q. Do the Units need cleaning?
A. Yes. It works by reflecting a certain light spectrum from the sun or artificial light back to the bird. If the unit is dirty, this will hamper the working of the Eagle Eye.
Q. What is the expected lifespan of a unit?
A. Each unit is guaranteed for a period of 18 months, but under normal conditions a life expectancy of 5 years is possible, given that the system is serviced regularly. Service Agreements are available from most of our agents.
Q. Are the beams harm-full to humans and other animals?
A. No. They can be irritating if the reflection is into a window, but it is not harm-full.
Q. Will it chase away all of the birds?
A. No. We do not claim that the Eagle Eye will chase away all of the birds. There are always some stubborn persistent birds that refuse to give up its favorite roosting spot. They can only be removed through a culling program or by spiking their roosting/ nesting spots. Up to 80% reduction in bird infestation can be expected.
Q. What happens if the Eagle Eye gets struck by lightning?
A. It will disintegrate!! Call your insurance broker!!
Q. How long will a normal car battery last if that is the power source?
A. Up to two months.
Q. Can more than one Eagle Eye work off 1 solar panel?
A. Yes, depending on the size of the solar panel. Up to three units can be connected to one solar panel provided the wire does not exceed 20 meters.
Q. How long before the birds will return if a unit breaks?
A. Once the bird has moved to another roosting spot, it will not easily return because his pattern has been broken. It may take two to three weeks before they will start to return.
Q. Does it work for all bird kinds?
A. No. We are still testing on various bird species but we have found that it has no affect on most of the predator birds. It only affects the birds while they are in flight therefore, chicken and ostrich are save!!
Q. How do I know how many units I will need for my building?
A. Follow the placing guidelines on our website.
