Bird Deterrents FAQs

Here at Primrose, we offer many bird scarers to solve problems like herons stealing fish, pigeons defecating on your structures, and birds of prey targeting your game

Bird scarer solutions include bird decoys, mimicking birds of prey, ultrasonic repellers designed to startle birds, jet sprays designed to guard a particular area such as a pond, and bird and fence spikes designed to stop birds from perching.

  • How do I keep herons away from my pond?

    The first thing to do is try to impede the heron’s access to the surface of the pond. Vertical sides and low water levels will help with this, but it can be inconvenient for other wildlife and the sides will need to be reinforced to prevent collapse.

    Electric fences and tripwires can be used to prevent access, as well as pond crop netting which can cover either the full pond or just the perimeter. Tall shrubs will also make herons wary of the area as they may think that predators could be lurking.

    Ultimately, heron deterrents will work best at keeping herons away without you having to accommodate the design of your pond. We offer a wide range of heron deterrents:

    • Jet spray repellers release a 5-second spray of water when the motion sensor is triggered
    • Laser guards use a combination of light and sound to repel approaching herons
    • Ornamental eyeball scarers will reflect flashes of light into heron’s eyes
  • Why should I keep herons away from my pond?

    If you keep fish in your pond, they could be in danger from herons. Herons will fish in any pond for their next meal, so if you want to keep your pond fish safe you’ll need to make sure they have a good reason to avoid your pond!

  • What is the best heron deterrent?

    There is no one size fits all solution to scaring herons away from your pond. We recommend accommodating your pond to make it as unappealing as possible to herons in the first place, then experimenting with one or two heron deterrents.
