Lasers to scare birds off crops!

Postby Pajarita » Sat Sep 29, 2018 12:42 pm

An experiment/project in Argentina paid by the Dutch government for farmers to use lasers to scare birds off crops - and it works! They decrease damage by 70 to 90%! And it worked with Patagonians and Quakers... I LIKE IT!!!!!

It sounds promising. Hopefully rotating different colors of laser light will keep the birds from becoming used to them. These things tend to lose effectiveness after the birds figure them out. Birds are too smart for their own good, sometimes.
