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.

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.

“During the past season our Wheat R&D team had evaluated four Eagle Eye Bird scaring devices at the Bethlehem site. The results were most satisfactory and we would be expanding our usage of these apparatuses the coming season. The tests were carried out on our summer planting of wheat.

Because this planting is done in December and harvested in March, bird damage is prevalent due to the fact that this is the only wheat in the area. This is very valuable germplasm and needs to be protected extensively. Normally quella (small sparrow) are the biggest problem. We observed less than 10% bird damage compared to more than 30% in previous years”.

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.
