Despite the fact that we at Esschert Design are in favor of more birds in the garden most of the time, we can imagine that there are times when birds cause a lot of nuisance. Because they nest on roof ridges, damage the paintwork of cars, cause noise pollution or target our cultivated fruit and vegetables. You will find modern bird repellents that show birds the way without harming them.
Many small and medium-sized birds are only too happy to pick a grain (and fruit) from the garden. This is irritating for the fanatic who has just sown and wants to harvest his cultivated fruits. It may not be Halloween yet, but you may frighten these uninvited guests a bit here and there. In an animal friendly way of course.
A lightweighted hostile
In fact, birds such as starlings and pigeons are easy to fool. If they run into their big enemy (the owl), they turn around and quickly look for another place. Our realistic plastic version of this great winged enemy keeps intruders at bay, helps protect crops in the (vegetable) garden or balcony and reduces noise pollution from screeching birds in the neighborhood. This plastic owl can be placed either standing or hanging in the garden. Another variant is the photorealistic print of the Owl with a deterrent metal bell underneath and a rope at the top to hang the scarecrow statue anywhere.
Did you know starlings come in big numbers and can eat away all the food in just a few minutes?
I see you
Birds feel watched by the glare of light and will then quickly flee when light falls on the marble eyes of this cat's head. The dangling scarecrow can easily be hung anywhere in the garden because of the chain with hook, so it catches light from all sides.Crows can often ingest eggs, small mammals or sometimes even small birds with ease. The sight of a crow is therefore often quite a deterrent to them. It therefore serves as a handy alternative to keep birds away from places where they are not welcome. The plastic crow-like is easy to place in the garden, but it also comes with an attachment system for balustrades and a hanging hook for hanging.
Gardeners, picking gardens and homeowners with a large garden full of berries or cherries are more often forced to take stronger measures. This is where our bigger " artillery " comes into play. The anti-bird kite (in handy carrying case) is made of Nylon UV, has a wingspan of 147 cm (at 70 cm high) and comes with a telescopic pole of fiberglass and ground anchor. Suitable for use up to maximum wind force 4.
