Meeting in BCG office in Delft

Tags : 

Egbert Sonneveld visited BCG in Delft to swap the old handheld laser for the new one with the necessary additional safety features. Project manager Joep Everaers received him and gave him some explanations and training on the improved device. Joep also updated Egbert on the latest developments on the trial site in Germany. The season finished there and the equipment is not operational at the moment. There is new trial planed after summer where Joep is planning to remain on site several days and make use of a handheld device.

Egbert and Joep also had a look at data collected being video material and log sheets filled in. There is no clear reaction to the laser by the animals yet so the ideas are now going towards making changes on the colour and the shape of the laser light.

End of trials in Wölferlingen

Tags : 

Spring came in and it has already become summer. For ecology, the environment and the wildlife, this means a lot. Especially wild boars are leaving the woods in search for food in the fields. Now that the whole area is having plenty of food as a result of the sunny spring, wild boars don’t specifically go into the trial field anymore. Possible new trials at this location will start in the autumn.

Researchers of Liverpool John Moores University and Bird Control Group are now viewing and analyzing the video and photo material from the test site. This location is within a large Natura2000 area and contains plenty of wildlife. The camera footage is showing plenty of deer, wild boar, hare, fox and some different bird species. The researchers are now looking for footage where the LIFE Laser Fence laser is causing any reactions in the wildlife behavior. Sufficient reactions are a proper basis for drawing any conclusions from the trials.

Area Sales Manager of Bird Control Group, Gijs Groen visited London to participate in NBC Environment Conference. The conference is hosted to promote environmental sustainability in business. There were a lot of inspirational speakers and demonstrations by industry experts including live bird of prey, robotic falcons, surveying with drones and our laser bird repellents as the latest bird management technology. Gijs Groen talked to the pest controllers, local authorities and facility managers. All of them might have different backgrounds but they all share the same problem – pest nuisance that bring a lot of issues and problems. Gijs talked with the visitors of the event about the EU Life Laser Fence project and the solution we are researching on repelling mammals with the laser fence. The pest controllers find the idea very interesting and meaningful. They are very keen to learn more about the possible opportunities with the laser fence in the future.
