Cheshire Wildlife Trust in Bickley – hall farm visit by manufacturer, Bird Control Group

Tags : 

Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) invited Joep Everaers from Bird Control Group to visit one of the locations of the EU Life Laser Fence project where the personnel tests laser to repel the different animal species. One of the locations in Europe where the Autonomic system is tested for monitoring animal behavior is the Cheshire Wildlife Trust (CWT) in Bickley. Mr. Everaers was asked to approve the safety measures and check the location and the installation patterns to guarantee safety and an effective use of the system. Together with Dr. Martin Sharp, Dr. Eduardo Cordova-Lopez and Dr. Jennifer Sneddon, Mr. Everaers made sure that the system is inspected and approved. The goal for this particular system in Bickley is to see how rabbits are reacting to the laser. This is partly done by analyzing the rabbits activity in the field with wild cameras, monitoring/measuring the grass heights and the presence of rabbit droppings. Monitoring is partly done by students from LJMU and the CWT.

Bird Control Group visits fish farms with its Belgium partner Amsger from June 20th till 22nd

Area Sales Manager, Sibylle Giraud, visited the BCG local partner Amsger and several fish farms in Wallonia, Belgium. Owners wanted to discuss what could be done to repel not only birds but also the different kind of animals which are attacking the fishes daily, for example rats; which are causing important financial loss to their exploitation. They have tried so far, many different devices, which have very often proven unsuccessful over time (acoustics) or others that are very expensive and unpractical (nets) and they were curious to find out if the laser technology could be a solution to their challenges and the research made in that field.
