"Laser" hawk/owl protection??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

We were told about a product that mounts on a pole or tree that sends out a "laser" type beam that keeps hawks and owls away.  Has anyone heard of this product, and if so, do you know where I can get more info on it?
Thanks!!

http://www.backyardpoultrymag.com/  This is a great Magazine, there are several "lazer type" deterrants in there.  Hope this helps!

Check out www.niteguard.com, sounds like this is what you have heard about.

Just came across this thread.  The "niteguard" sounds interesting.  Has anyone here tried it?  I don't see how it helps against hawk, since it's only for night use.  But can it deter racoons at night?

I know a farmer who uses them successfully.  His issues are with the Great Horned Owls, though.  I'm not sure about 4 legged predators.

At the very minimum, they are cheap insurance.

A tall pole with an electric fence hot wire (with a ground wire run parallel to the hot wire) both on a perch like structure at the top of the poll will disrupt every owl and hawk (ok mostly owls) that land on the perch while selecting a chicken dinner from the menu.

Keep your chickens safe from predators, buy and wear fur.
