Eagle Eye Placement Recommendations

Summary of basic guidelines to consider:

-Use the correct units for the specific species:
 Silver - Land Birds
 Red - Marine Birds

-Place the Eagle Eye as high as possible.

-Combine Eagle Eye installations with Pro-Peller units.

-Concentrate the units around the problem areas, but do not forget about the unaffected sides for approaching birds.

-Install Eagle Eye units on the highest points and on the corners at the problem areas.

-Also install Pro-Peller units and wind-driven Eagle Eye units on the unaffected corners.

-Wind driven Eagle Eye units may be used exclusively in areas with a regular breeze.

-Use maximum sunlight.

-Consider neighbours for irritation caused by the flashes.

-Use with other products in ‘High Pressure’ situations.

-Service the system every 3-4 months.


                                                                Placement examples:
Placement on houses:
Wind-driven Eagle Eye on the highest point
Pro-Peller units on corners and near the
problem areas.
      Small buildings (longest side = 30m)
      1 Eagle Eye on the highest point
      2 Pro-Pellers on the corners
                                               Medium buildings (longest side = 45m)
4     5
 2 Eagle Eye units on the highest points or alternative corners on flat roofs.
                              2 Pro-Peller units


Medium to large buildings (60m)
 4 Eagle Eye units on the corners
 4 Pro-Peller units between the Eagle Eyes
Large buildings (70m +)
    Eagle Eye units on the highest points, 1 unit
    every 60m and on corners.

Avian Flu

Written by
Avian influenza or bird 'flu has been confirmed at several poultry farms in South Africa. Millions of chickens have already been culled worldwide, so the situation in South Africa is cause for concern, and one can only imagine the financial implications for the chicken farmers.

Avian ‘flu in South Africa is most commonly carried by migratory birds, water birds, the hadeda ibis, and guinea fowl. Chickens are infected through coming into contact with one of these birds and/or their droppings, which, at battery farms, may occur when the side panels of the buildings are raised for ventilation.

Eagle Eye Bird Control strategies:
Following consultation with various poultry farmers, we have arrived at two effective, affordable strategies:
1) Bird Netting:
This is the most effective solution to prevent chickens from coming into contact with outside carrier birds.
Bird netting is installed from the edge of the battery building's roof, slanted towards the ground and fastened 3 meters away from the sides of the building.
This will be done by the farming staff due to the strict health and safety precautions for outside workers. Eagle Eye will train the staff on how to install the netting and will supply all equipment necessary to do so.
Battery net
2) Open-area bird control.
This strategy is designed to reduce bird numbers in the area in order to reduce the risk of contact.
This strategy is more affordable but is not a total solution, which the bird netting is. The idea is to install Eagle Eye open-area
bird control products to reduce the carrier bird numbers in the area around the batteries and thus reduce the risk of them coming into contact with the chickens.

The process is to Install an Eagle Eye (silver and gold) reflector on top of the roof in the middle of the battery. This unit can be wind driven if there are consistent windy conditions in the area. If not, a solar-powered Eagle Eye unit should be installed.

Then, add one Pro-Peller unit every 30 meters on the roof, and finally, install dropper posts in the ground around the battery building, at 10-meter intervals. Install a Pro-Peller unit on the dropper posts at 30 meter intervals, and a strip of Bird Tape on the remaining dropper posts.

Problem Birds: Seagulls and Cormorants

Contact person: Andries van Veen



Testimony:  The seagulls and Cormorants were messing on my boat and we had to spend hours cleaning the boat before we could use it.

The wind driven Eagle Eye is a fantastic solution to our problem and is very robust and cost effective.
