To whom it may concern,

LIA – BIRD HAZARD REDUCTION PROGRAM

Lanseria International Airport is the busiest privately owned airport in South Africa and indeed one of the busiest in the country with regard to aircraft and passenger movements. Lanseria is fortunate to continue to experience growth with a new runway, aircraft movement and parking areas and extensions to the terminal building either completed or in various stages of construction.

As part of Lanseria’s commitment to safety, and in line with the SACAA and ICAO “Wild Life Management Program” the Airport Authority at Lanseria take the management and reduction of bird hazards as part of the overall Safety program very seriously.

In July 2009 the Lanseria Airport Authority was approached by Eagle Eye Bird Control to install and test a number of flashing units next to the airport runways. These units proved to be successful with the number of bird activity in proximity to the units reducing by up to 60%, thereby reducing the risk of bird strikes by aircraft as well. The units were maintained by Eagle Eye Bird Control technical personnel without any problems experienced.

At this time a total of 20 units were installed, with the personnel from Eagle Eye experimenting with various new units, thereby continuously improving the product.

In December 2013 the new runway at Lanseria opened and Eagle Eye Bird Control units were again installed next to the runway due to the previous success. The Eagle Eye Technical personnel assessed the area and a total of 45 units were placed at strategic points.

Although these new units are quite visible they pose no distraction to pilots or Air Traffic Control personnel and the bird “problem” at Lanseria has been resolved.

To whom it may concern,

LIA – BIRD HAZARD REDUCTION PROGRAM

As part of our ongoing endeavours to reduce bird hazards at the airport and, specifically, problems encountered with the two resident bird species, namely “Plovers” and “Guinean-fowl”, we have looked at various alternatives.

When approached by Eagle Eye, and in line with ICAO Doc. 9137-AN/898 Part 3, “Bird Control and Reduction” and specific Sec. 8.3 “ Visual Deterrents”, we undertook a program to evaluate the Eagle Eye system. The system has been up and running since 1 July 2009.

At this stage, and taking into account the time of year, it is still too early to release any figures. However, since the installation of the system, there has been a steady decline in bird population numbers within the vicinity of the Eagle Eye’s.

It must be noted, Air Traffic Control (ATC) firstly commented on the distraction caused by the light flashes, however within two weeks they reported that they had become accustomed to the lights. Pilots commented on the purpose of the flashes but noted that they produced no problematic distraction to aircraft operations.

If you require any further information, please feel free to contact me.

Yours Faithfully,

Atlantic Boat Club, Cape Town

Written by

Site: Atlantic boat club, Cape Town, South Africa

Problem birds: Seagulls, Cormorants.

Contact person: Budge Steward.

E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Testimony: Hundreds of seagulls and cormorants were using the jetty and boats for perching and roosting.

The walkway became slippery and dangerous as a result of the droppings and the yachts were a mess.

After installing one red Eagle Eye, significant decreases in numbers were noticed and now the problem is solved completely.

We can recommend the use of Eagle Eye for removal of seagulls and cormorants in similar applications.

J.C. Ehrlich/ Rentokil USA

Written by

Some people at Ehrlich/Rentokil think we’re crazy, but we’re having pretty good success in the New York City and Westchester County areas when installing the Eagle Eye units. 

My operations manager has taken all of the guess work out of it, and our installations go very smoothly.  

I first visited this location in December of 2010.  The customer agreed to the installation in August of 2011.  I did a follow up visit in March of 2012 and couldn’t believe the dramatic results.  The customer things I’m a genius!!

The key I find is not “over promising the customer”

If you offer the “complete solution” and the customer is not willing or able to spend the money, the Eagle is always a more affordable option. 

I never say it will “eliminate” your pest bird activity.  I always say “you will see a noticeable reduction”.

We recently installed some “red hats” for a hospital out on Long Island.  They just called me yesterday asking that we install some additional “red hats” at another facility a few towns over.

So far so good.

Monsanto’s Wheat Reasearch & Development

Written by

During the past season Monsanto’s Wheat R&D team had evaluated four Eagle Eye Bird scaring devices at the Bethlehem site.

The results were most satisfactory and we would be expanding our usage of these apparatuses the coming season. The tests were carried out on our summer planting of wheat. Because this planting is done in December and harvested in March, bird damage are prevalent due to the fact that this is the only wheat in the area.

Klipnes Boerdery

Written by

Over the past eight years that I have been farming with fruit at Klipnes I have consistently experienced the Pied crows to be a pest at harvest time. The crows were uncontrollable despite the consistent use of scarecrows, hunters and even carbide cannons.

Then I happened across an article in the Landbouweekblad about the Eagle Eye Bird Scarers and made contact with Chris Kotze who responded quickly and professionally. He recommended using six units for best results, however ultimately I only installed three units on the six hectares of orchards.
