Olive Farm in Australia

Bird Control for Farms Bird Control for Farms

The following are the early results from our Olive Trials with the Australian Olive growers association. They have a one hectare trial site in Canberra under siege from Starlings. Last year they lost 100% of the crop and they receive Australia wide news – “Who stole the Olives” was the headlines. Stolen at night with no tyre track, no machinery noise, etc – it was the birds!

This year, 2 Eagle Eyes (without lights) were installed very late (surprise, surprise!) with excellent result. They are only very young trees (as you can see in the background) and of numerous varieties.

We had great success late this season with strawberries, apples and stone fruit and are waiting on DPI (QLD government department) trials for flying foxes in tropical fruits. It looks like we are now good to go with a national marketing plan for the horticulture market. Our main distributor is excited as well.
