Bird control groups are using lasers to prevent HPAI spread from wild birds
The current resurgence of High Pathogenic Avian Influenza is largely blamed on migratory and wild birds. Some farmers are turning to technology to keep the unwelcome fowl away from the farm, and some are turning to lasers.
Bird Control Group tells Brownfield Ag News they make a green laser beam that moves slowly across an area to scare the birds away. Birds interpret the light as a predator and leave.
It is not just poultry operations using similar technology. Fish farms, feed lots, and barge terminals also use it to keep wild birds at bay.
