Maintenance visit of BCG in Wölferlingen, Joep Everaers & Tomas Peeters

Tags : 

Certified Installer Tomas Peeters and Project Manager Joep Everaers of Bird Control Group traveled to the Life Laser Fence test-site location in Wölferlingen, Germany. The Life Laser Fence Autonomic prototype has been operating there for already 10 weeks. Joep and Tomas went there to perform maintenance to the device and reposition cameras and wild-cameras. They concluded that the device was operating well, even though the weather was very cold last month. They obtained photographs and video footage from the cameras and wildtrap cameras which are going to be analysed on animal’s behavior and reactions to the laser at the office of Bird Control Group in the Netherlands. For now it can be confirmed that the location is rich on animal species like wild boar, deer, rabbit, fox and multiple common bird species. They all have been spotted in the area around the system.

Beral/Cylteff in Zamora will do trials with the handheld laser

Tags : 

Pedro Alonso from Beral Ingenierias and from grain producing company Cylteff will be experimenting with the handheld laser to control birds and rodent animals around and inside the grain storage. Pedro is happy to collaborate with Life project Laser Fence since he has experience with Life in the projects ‘Crops for Better Soil’ and ‘Operation CO2’.

Pedro hopes to report soon on his findings and he will fill in the usual log sheets of the projects. If the system works he might have to consider installing the Autonomic system in Cylteff. He expects that the traditional Agrilaser of BCG could do the job.

Maintenance visit of BCG in Wolferlingen

Tags : 

On Thursday 25th of January 2018 one of Bird Control Group’s certified installer visited BCG’s test location for regular maintenance. The Life Laser Fence laser system has been operating for 3 weeks. These first weeks of testing are about confirming the animal species involved and confirming if the area is suitable to start monitored tests and if adjustments are necessary. During these 3 weeks, wildlife camera’s recorded animal activity. Different animal species were already identified by the images and videos recorded from the camera’s. At least multiple wild boars, a fox, a deer and crows are identified. More appropriate video footage need to be obtained and need to be analyzed to study the behavior of the animals identified. During every maintenance visit, BCG will reallocate the camera’s and reinstall laser projections when necessary.
