Ornix / Drone Scarecrow


Throughout history, flocks of birds have been a great nuisance for farmers, demanding intense labor to keep them under control. The farmers have utilized a combination of various bird repellents such as propane-fired cannons, flashing tapes, scare-eye balloons and etc. However, these repellents are not as effective due to adaptability of the birds. Accordingly, the Ornix was designed to effectively repel invasive birds in agricultural settings to increase the crop yield and lower bird control costs and labor.
