No bird soars
too high,
if he soars
on his own wings.

All the blessings for this season, travel carefully and return to us safely in the new year.

Eagle Eye Bird Control Closes on the 19th December and will Re-open on the 5th January.

All orders must be placed and collected by the 19th December.

When it comes to large scale commercial pest bird control there are many factors that influence the integration of Eagle Eye Bird Control products into the surrounding environment for optimum results.

The process begins when the Eagle Eye technical staff survey the commercial property to enable them to create a tailored bird control plan. This includes the bird control product selection and placement. For smaller bird control solutions it may be possible to apply only one bird control method and get the desired results. However Eagle Eye Bird Control is most effective when a range of products are used in the arsenal against pest birds.

The following detail is part of a proposal for Airport Bird Management and Control

The problem:
Birds (pigeons and other native bids) are entering the hangars at an Airport and creating a threat to planes on the runways.

The solution provided by an Eagle Eye Technician:
To keep the birds from entering the Hangar you can use Eagle Eye’s on the outside but you must combine them with physical barriers on the inside as well (Spikes, bird gel or netting).
For the runway, we use Eagle Eye’s combined with Flashflags. If the site has enough wind, you can use Wind Driven Eagle Eye units.
The way we place them is as follows:
Start by placing the first row 50 meters away from the runway (or according to the local Aviation requirements) and the second row 80 meters from the runway. Place the Eagle Eye’s 100 meters apart from each other and place two Flashflags in between them.

The main point of concern is always what impact the flashes will have on the pilots.
The Eagle Eye is designed in such a way that the flashes will always be directed downwards and not upwards.
The birds will only be affected when they come in to land underneath the beams of the Eagle Eyes. Therefore, the pilots will not even be aware of the Eagle Eye’s on the ground.

We have a very successful installation at Lanseria International airport in Johannesburg as well as in Swaziland.

And the results speak for themselves. A testimony from an existing client…

"…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.

We as humans are pretty good at turning a blind eye or putting off doing tasks that seem unappealing or distasteful. When we move into a new premises, the first impressions wear off quickly and all the imperfections become more and more apparent. That is, until we discover that the landlord is not going to lift a finger and we have to do something about it ourselves and then they seem to magically become less of an issue “I can live with it, it’s not that important!”

This is why there is a period on a letting agreement where all the items that are already broken, damaged and in need of repair are listed so at the end of the lease agreement you are not charged for the existing wear and tear (assuming the landlord never listened to the repeated requests to come and fix the broken window, leaking pipe, stains on the carpet, hole in the roof, etc..).

So we get on with going about our business, if the birds have moved into the attic then we create ‘extra’ storage space (like that extra space on the side of the stairs that no one really uses anyway or that corner behind the door – who takes the time to open the door all the way these days?).

If the birds are roosting above the door and the poop starts to build up causing the jump over the poop into the entrance to become too perilous – then there is always the back door, right?

We park the car in the sun because the birds are roosting above the shady spots. Contrary to urban myth pigeons do not spend time honing their poop targeting technique. They are mostly underachievers in this department and will aim for a large target like a handy car for instance. So, after months of your car getting abused by pigeons during the day and having to drive home bobbing your head around so you can see through the poop streaks on the windscreen, the car gets parked in the sun across the road.

But the fact is that with all this going on (having to keep turning a blind eye or running your coping behaviour set on high) just wears you down and wastes time. Perhaps it is time to stop trying to cope and get some solid Bird Control done after all…

Bird Damage to Planes

Birds flying into man made machines is such a common occurrence that it now has its own acronym – B.A.S.H. (Bird Aircraft Strike Hazzard) AKA birdstrike, AKA Bird Ingestion. The last odd term refers to when a bird flies into an aircraft engine and gets um... ingested? But if you see the sequence below it looks more like a really bad case of burning indigestion!

Bird Damage to Trains

While man has broken the land speed record, airspeed record and conquered the heights and depths of this planet the poor birds have yet to roll out their first strap on jet-pack from the R&D hanger, complete with body armour and auto M.A.D. (Machine Avoidance Directive) detection and guidance system. Until the birds catch up with technology and develop counter defence measures, our fast moving machines will most likely continue to be damaged by birds.

That being said when our vehicles are finally standing still the birds will extract their revenge for all their fallen comrades!



Get in touch with the boys and girls at Eagle Eye Bird Control to help protect your fast moving vehicles when they are at rest. Alternatively here is an hour long video on how to remove bird droppings without damaging the paint work... enjoy!

We love birds! The way the dawn is gently woken by an occasional tweet and then the early bird is joined by its fellows in gradually increasing numbers as the sun begins to make an appearance on the horizon.
We love the endless variety of shapes, sizes, colours and sounds…even pigeons and seagulls, but we don’t like them getting too comfortable in our personal and business space.

This is why we have invested our resources in developing a quality range of devices that can be used to deter pest birds from invading your space.

Once the units have been installed it comes naturally to our clients to express there relief and gratitude for the solution to a serious bird control problem. Here are a mixed bag of testimonials from a variety of industries.

Pigeons were roosting and nesting inside this sheltered area.
The birds were perching on the walls during the day and roosting On the pipes at night.
Since the Wind driven Eagle Eye’s were installed, there has been a remarkable reduction in bird numbers!

Urban pigeons can be a real pest - especially in the industrial sectors with warehouses that provide ample space for roosting. If birds of a feather flock together then pest birds really get their ‘flocking on’ and can rapidly populate a favoured roosting area. There is apparently no such thing as overcrowded when it comes to pest birds – in fact the cry seems to be “yah sure! Bring your mates, the more the merrier!!”

When you have an aluminium or tin roof the resident pigeons can really make a racket. For such a light bird they are seemingly capable of stomping about with their jack boots on, when they are not doing the goose step they are making industrial scritch-scratching noises that can set your teeth on edge like nails down the blackboard.

Apart from the distressing sounds above your head there is the ‘fallout’ and ‘casualties’ associated with bird faeces. Given a short period of time you won’t even need to look up to know that you have a bird infestation. There will be an abundance of evidence (faeces, feathers, broken eggs, nest material) on the pavement that makes the building look shabby and presents a poor image to visitors.

Eagle Eye recently assisted a food service equipment company to take back control of their warehouse roof. Using a combination of Eagle Eye products is the most effective way to ensure lasting effects. Pictured below the effectiveness is clearly apparent after using a combination of FlashFlags and Eagle Eye units.

Durie, the manager swears by them. He calls me in about once a year to "remove" the one or two birds that have found their way inside. He keeps his Eagle Eyes clean using his own staff.
