Rentokil Intelligent Bird Scaring is an effective and sustainable device that’s been designed to deter birds without harm. It can guard your premises 24/7, minimise the risk of habituation and can be controlled and monitored remotely via a tablet or smartphone app.

Nuisance birds

Nuisance birds can be effectively discouraged by using deterrents such as bird spikes, netting and bioacoustics, but many bird species exhibit a wide range of smart behaviours and can adapt to new environments and conditions quickly. When a flock of birds realise that a particular sound poses no real threat, they can rapidly become accustom to it, and return to roost or nest in that location.

The solution? An intelligent and adaptive scare device that effectively deters birds without harming them and helps prevent the risk of habituation.

This intelligent bird scaring system is often used as part of an overall IPM (Integrated Pest Management) solution which may include Hawking (Birds of Prey) deterrent and bird proofing options such as bird netting and bird point system.

Rentokil Intelligent Bird Scaring Solution

The device has an intelligent built-in listening system that recognises different bird species (the system recognises rooks, gulls, geese and starlings by their unique sounds) and identifies the best scare tool from a broad range to deter each of them. It can detect birds inside a radius of 250 metres and can alternate the order and intensity of the scare tools to prevent the flock becoming accustomed to the sounds, and no longer being deterred.

The system can be activated in a variegated pattern, allowing volume, pre-programmed times of activation and unique bird calls to be targeted, adapted and monitored 24/7 via a mobile app. This offers complete flexibility for fine tuning the bird scaring system to optimise its efficiency and meet your specific circumstances and needs to effectively protect your business premise.

The Rentokil Intelligent Bird Scaring solution can be made even more sustainable with the addition of a solar charging panel. This allows the system to work completely independently allowing it to be placed in the most suitable and effective location to deter nuisance birds, without power supply limitations.
