NETHERLANDS – Innovative technology from Bird Control Group is revolutionizing bird deterrence in poultry operations with the AVIX Autonomic Laser Bird Deterrent, a cutting-edge solution designed to safeguard poultry farms from wild bird intrusion and potential disease transmission.

The AVIX Autonomic system utilizes a green laser beam projected strategically across areas vulnerable to wild bird intrusion.

By creating the illusion of a physical threat, the system prompts birds to instinctively flee, significantly reducing the risk of direct contact between wild birds and domestic poultry.

This proactive approach not only mitigates bird nuisance but also plays a crucial role in stemming the spread of avian influenza (HPAI) by minimizing potential contamination of shared water sources.

Research from Wageningen University has validated the effectiveness of the AVIX Autonomic system, showcasing a remarkable 99.7% reduction rate in wild bird presence on a free-range poultry farm.

The system operates 24/7 with no bird habituation, ensuring continuous protection against avian threats. Its fully automated operation, programmable patterns, and mobile app monitoring make it a versatile and user-friendly solution for poultry farmers.

Advanced Features

The AVIX Autonomic device offers a range of advanced features, including 16 different patterns, 10 time slots, and 250 individual waypoints per pattern, allowing for customized and targeted bird-repelling strategies.

Installation and configuration are straightforward, with minimal maintenance costs due to the system’s durable design and long-lasting laser bulb.

Unlike traditional methods such as gas cannons or distress calls, the AVIX Autonomic system operates silently, making it suitable for use in residential areas and environmentally sensitive locations.

Safety features ensure that the device operates without harming people, providing peace of mind to farmers and residents alike.
