Sales Manager of Bird Control Group, Juliaan Kleinloog visited various blueberry farms and vineyards in Poland to spread the word about bird control solutions and the ways to minimise financial losses due to birds and optimise crop production. Among many blueberry and vineyard owners one of the partners of Bird Control Group – Bird Patrol was present there as well. The group also visited a Polish vineyard where about 20-25 vineyard owners gathered to see the demonstration of the bird laser repellent. Juliaan installed Autonomic laser to demonstrate how it works and what it can do for the growers. He explained the visitors about the EU Life Laser Fence project and how it can help them in the future. The growers were very excited to know more about the results of the project.

Testing in the farm of Cucanoche

Tags : 

In the farm of Cucanoche, most of the trials have been directed to test the operation of the autonomic laser system over mammals, especially rabbits.

The rabbits are small mammals that in some places of our peninsula can get to be considered like plagues, creating devastating damages in the cultures, and consequently, bringing numbers and numerous economic losses.

Unfortunately, until now we have not obtained reliable information that indicates a positive response from these small mammals to the application of this system. Even so, the trials will continue the next months to work with different amounts of ambient light and different moments in the life cycles of these animals.

Testing in the rice fields of Isla Mayor in Seville

Tags : 

The rice fields of Isla Mayor in Seville are one of the most important ecosystems of the province due to the large number of avian species that populate the area.

During the months of June, July and August the trials have been done with the manual laser over different bird species in order to verify and demonstrate the operation of this system on this type of animals. These tests began in mid-June and will extend till the culmination of the rice cultivation cycle.

The results have been really positive in terms of eliminating birds from the plots.

The tests indicate that factors such as the age of the animals, the time of day or the time of the breeding cycle in which they were have a direct influence on the type of the reaction obtained.

Tags : 

Following the established schedule, in the month of July we have begun with the expansion of the areas where we currently working with the laser and we have started the trials in two more farms in the province of Cádiz, “El Chorreadero” in the municipality of San José del Valle, and “Torremesa” in Chipiona.

The cultivation of table grapes in the area of ​​Rota, Chipiona and Sanlúcar has acquired great importance in recent years, and struggle against one of its greatest dangers such as small passerine birds is quiet important for us. The results obtained have been really encouraging, especially with sparrows, one of the most harmful small birds in the area. The objective of this extension is none other than to continue carrying out tests that demonstrate the positive reaction or not of the different animals to this system.
