Bird Scaring Kite
"No self-respecting bird is going to peck away at crops when there's something hovering high over his head," says Malcom Cochrane who manufactures a bird scaring kite.
It has a 3 1/2-ft. wingspan and a new tail that gives it stability. When flown on its 42 1/2-ft. aluminum pole and 39-ft. line, the kite will automatically launch and relaunch as winds come and go. The pole allows kite to be flown around orchards, near buildings and tall trees where other kites can't be used.
Sells for about $30. Pole, guylines, pegs and clips are about $108.
