It is all over the news - South Africa has the dreaded bird flu. Borders are being closed to chicken exports as neighbouring countries suspend or ban South African chickens from crossing their borders. The main focus is on livestock as processed or packaged chickens have been tested for the virus. This virus is not the strain that is harmful to other animals or to humans. The SA Poultry Association CEO Kevin Lovell said the sale of live chickens had been banned to curb the spread of the virus. But the ban had nothing to do with preventing illness in…
Making your home semi-independent or taking it completely off the grid makes a lot of sense and saves money in the long run. Going green is the current buzzword, not surprisingly with the current water scarcity situation and power shedding in South Africa. People are looking to retrofit their homes and business to take the pressure of the main grid. The situation is only going to get worse as the demand continues to outstrip supply. Having your own source of power from fitted solar panels and your own source of water stored in water tanks will ensure that there are…
There is a catch 22 situation when it comes to some bird proofing - the bird poop and general mess and destruction of a bird infestation is unsightly but the pest control solution can be equally visually unappealing. In most cases the eradication of pest birds is worth putting up with a few extra fixtures and fittings, but the end result very much depends on the person who installed the systems. In South Africa we are used seeing netting, wire and spikes surrounding buildings, but bird control doesn't have to be ugly. Get a professional bird proofing expert Use a…
Eagle Eye bird control makes high-quality pest control products that are designed to withstand the elements. After all the bird control units are placed in pretty exposed areas of the building to deter the birds from roosting in these hard to reach spots. But, despite being hardy you still need to keep an eye on the pest bird control measures to make sure they keep working hard to send pest birds away. It is understandable that the maintenance of the bird control systems can be overlooked, as typically the units are installed in hard to reach places, such as rooftops,…

What is effective bird control?

Eagle Eye has developed an extensive range of pest bird control and bat control products. Our aim is not to exterminate pest birds, but rather to deter and prevent their access to your building, residence, factory or farm or premises.   While lethal methods are prescribed as a solution, we have found that the relief is only temporary at best as new pest birds come to fill the vacuum. Pest birds are territorial and if a gap opens as a result of a culling, then it won’t be long before another group of pest birds come flocking in from an…
Pigeon poo is not the most common dinner table conservation topic, as apart from being a little off-putting (or a complete conversation bomb) most people are blissfully unaware of the ramifications of having the stuff lying around on their properties.Granted we are unlikely to have to step over mounds of pigeon poo during the course of our daily activities, as the birds aren’t given to mingling with the household inhabitants. But lurking in the back of our minds is the niggling worry of the current state of the area where you know the pest birds have chosen to stake out…

Spring is here, so queue the fine weather and the outdoor entertaining.  But, the weather is not always guaranteed yet, so a fine weekend day must be grabbed and spontaneous plans made to get out in the open to celebrate the end of a cold and wet winter. But did the pest birds get there before you? Spring means that they have already had time enough to get a jump start and propagate an entire new generation, which means more bird poop to go around. So as you head off to the outdoor entertainment area, ladened with snacks and beverages,…
