Nuisance birds

Nuisance birds can be deterred using simpler methods such as bird nets, spikes and bioacoustics, however several species show adaptive intelligence to render these methods unsustainable. When a flock of birds realise that a particular sound does not pose a real threat, they can rapidly become accustom to it, and return to roost or nest in that location.

The solution? An intelligent and adaptive scare device that effectively deters birds without harming them and helps prevent the risk of habituation.

The Rentokil Intelligent Bird Scaring system is frequently deployed in a wider overall IPM (Integrated Pest Management) system that can have Hawking (Birds of Prey) deterrent and other bird management solutions like netting and bird spikes.

To avoid flocks becoming used to the sounds, the device can adjust its intensity and order of the scaring tools and it can detect a flock within a 250-metre radius.

The system can be activated in a pattern whereby time of activation, volume and specific bird calls are all irregular. The sytem can be controlled and adjusted through the app, giving you freedom to adjust the system to however is most effective to your needs in order to best protect your premises.

Adding a solar charging panel to the Rentokil Intelligent Bird Scaring system can make it even more sustainable. You would then be able to optimise the system by placing it in the most appropriate position to deter nuisance birds as it will operate totally independently of any other power supply.
