“Bird Control Group leased one of their Agrilaser Autonomic for repelling birds in a 1-acre organic blueberry research field at Oregon State University’s North Willamette Research and Extension Center. We used the automatic laser in conjunction with an electronic bird control device in the 2016 season and were very satisfied with the level of bird control that we maintained. The automated laser was installed on a 6-ft platform in order to be able to scan above the canopy of the blueberry bushes and it was successful in reaching all corners of the field and deterring the birds that tried to enter. We are interested in using the bird scaring laser again in the future to help reduce crop losses and maintain our high quality fruit. We appreciate the support of Bird Control Group in our research program.”
