Runways, Ponds and Open Fields

The most effective methods for these open areas will be products focusing on the bird’s senses. Sound and visual deterrents should be utilized for these parts of the airport to scare birds away. Sound deterrents use recorded distress calls or loud explosions to scare birds out of runways and grass fields. Visual deterrents such as high powered lasers are perceived as predatory threats, driving flocks of geese away from runways. High tensile strength Pond Netting can be suspended over bodies of water, excluding waterfowl from accessing ponds. These methods will assist in mitigating bird activity in open exposed areas of the airfield.
