Bird Dispersal Laser Helps Greenhouse Owners Prevent Bird Damage
A greenhouse is a perfect place for birds to build their nests on. However, greenhouse owners find this problematic as birds peck the fruits and vegetable crops and bird droppings can be very hazardous.
Bird dispersal is often difficult in a greenhouse because it requires ventilation to make sure the temperature is right for fruits and vegetables to grow. Birds can easily get into the greenhouse through the ventilation1.
New Zealand Gourmet had a lot of problems with birds and couldn’t find a sufficient bird dispersal method. The most common birds that they attempted to repel were sparrows. They were nesting on the tomato and capsicum crops. New Zealand Gourmet tried many bird dispersal methods, however, the damage continued to cause significant financial loss.
New Zealand Gourmet wasn’t able to disperse the birds until they installed the Agrilaser Autonomic. The device provided a 100% reduction in bird activity and eliminated damage to the greenhouse. This was done by the device projecting a green laser beam that birds see as a threat and disperse immediately. Through this bird dispersal method, New Zealand Gourmet was also able to decrease annual losses in the fruit and vegetable fields and find a permanent bird dispersal solution.
