Nite Guard Discourages Predators
Jim and Betty Meyer, Princeton, Minnesota, sell several thousand ringneck pheasants each year as well as about 30,000 partridge.
The birds are kept in outside pens. At night, Great Horned Owls and other predatory birds were regular visitors.“They were flying away with our profits.” he says.
After trying several other ideas, they found that small, flashing red lights would scare the birds away. They designed a small solar-powered unit that could be mounted anywhere.
“There are no batteries to wear out and you don’t have to run electric wiring to it,” he points out.
“Nite Guard’s small flashing light is enough to signal danger to predators, so they avoid the area,” Meyer explains.
Several lights can also be used to keep raccoons, deer and other animals out of gardens, orchards and flower beds. They’re also effective against weasels, foxes, and coyotes.
Nite Guard lights measure 2 1/2 by 2 by 1 in. One light will protect in only one direction. You will need additional lights to shine in the other directions. The average life of the lights is 2-3 years and they sell for $19.95 each.
