The AVIX Autonomic Laser Bird Deterrent, designed by Bird Control Group, discourages wild species from poultry operations.

The product has showcased efficacy in stemming the spread of avian influenza (HPAI) by dissuading wild waterfowl from poultry farms, said the company.

Research from Wageningen University underscores the impact of the AVIX Autonomic system. In a study conducted on a free-range poultry farm, the laser bird deterrent demonstrated a 99.7% reduction rate in wild bird presence.

By projecting a green laser beam across areas frequented by birds, the system creates the illusion of a physical threat, prompting birds to instinctively flee. This proactive approach not only mitigates the risk of direct contact between wild birds and domestic poultry but also minimizes potential contamination of shared water sources, said Bird Control Group.
