Laser technology is now being utilised for bird management in industrial, aerospace and urban areas. It is an effective dispersal technique, as nuisance birds perceive the laser beam as an approaching danger so their instinctive behaviour is to move away from the protected area.
Laser dispersal systems are primarily used at dusk and are a particularly effective at protecting rooftops from roosting birds. The key benefits of using lasers for bird management include:
- Long range – max 12 km2 from one position
- Silent – ideal for use in built up areas
- Non-lethal – birds are not harmed
- Zero habituation with sustained use
- Versatile / multiple applications
- Class 2M laser – safe for public areas/use
To determine if lasers are suitable, a site specific risk assessment will need to be conducted before recommendation is made. You can talk to a member of the NBC team by calling 0333 567 2020.
Where can lasers be used as a bird deterrent?
- Warehousing & Distribution
- Aircraft Hangars
- Bus / Rail Depots
- Shopping Malls
- Railway Stations
- Exhibition Halls
- Landfill / Waste Transfer Stations
- Sports Stadiums
- Lakes, Aeration Ponds & Reservoirs
- Airfields (Aerolaser Variant)
Handheld or Automated Lasers?
Bird laser deterrents are available as a mobile handheld unit or as a fixed automated installation. Fixed laser installations run from a pre-determined programme and can use motion sensors, triggered by the birds, to activate the beam.
Are laser bird dispersal systems expensive?
Handheld laser bird deterrents are inexpensive versus the benefit of reduced maintenance and improved health and safety. A fixed automated installation are a higher cost but we are able to provide a leasing option as well as an outright purchase option.
We will complete a no-obligation site risk assessment before making recommendations to ensure you get expert advice. To book a site survey or to find out more about laser bird dispersal systems talk to a member of our team by calling 0333 567 2020.
