The Perfect Solution to Camouflage Open Water Ponds at Airports from Waterfowl
What are they? A simple solution to deter birds from open water ponds: Gold Mines-Airports-Rain Water Collection Basins.
Waterfowl attracted to areas of open water put themselves and humans at risk. A floating layer of Euro-Matic Bird Ball™ successfully camouflages the liquid and birds fail to recognise the ponds.
Bird Balls® are 100mm diameter UV stabilised black hollow plastic balls, manufactured in High Density Polyethylene. The balls float on the surface of a liquid, automatically arranging themselves into a close packed formation to completely cover the liquid surface. For areas subject to high winds where normal balls can be blown from the waters’ surface, we can provide the balls each filled with 200ml of water and become stable by sitting lower in the water.
Euro-Matic Bird Balls are fully operational at Heathrow airport, London, UK.
