Crop loss problem solved
Without the Autonomic being installed, Clover Pond Vineyard could have potentially lost 25% of their crop volume, which is estimated at 100,000 USD. Before the Autonomic was installed, there were thousands of birds at the vineyard.
Clover Pond Vineyard first installed the laser bird control device up in August 2018 and used it from dawn till dusk. James noticed an immediate difference in the number of birds. James: “We would turn the Autonomic on at dawn, and birds would disperse immediately.”
Benefits of the laser bird control device
James discovered the laser from the Orchard Magazine and thought that it was too good to be true. The other bird control method that James was considering was netting. James explained, “We were debating between netting and the laser bird repellent. After some consideration, we did not choose netting because of the increase in manual labor.” After the laser was put into use, James figured out quickly that the use of lasers was the right choice, as it minimized labor costs.
