SkyBird bird scaring rockets are designed to clear away birds in response to a very loud bang overhead.
Launched at an angle of approx. 45°, by an out-of-view operator, the unexpected loud mid-air explosion ensures non return for many hours – especially if reinforced by a second rocket set off very soon after the first. Birds become accustomed to all conventional bird scaring equipment if regular changes are not made in location and timing.
Skybird Rockets are best used, not as a substitute for other methods, but to enhance their effectiveness by introducing a new element of shock and surprise.
General Warnings (Agricultural Use): The Rockets are relatively fragile, and should be handled carefully to avoid breakage; it is recommended that the rockets are stored and carried in a robust, closed box. Never fire a damaged Rocket. The motor driving the Rocket produces flame and hot gases, so the Rocket should only be fired from a tube or rack placed well away from any inflammable materials such as dry grass.
Angle the launcher towards the birds – the optimum, safe angle is 60° to the ground (Do not angle the launcher at less than 45° to the ground).
Ensure that at least 600 feet of ground, clear of people, buildings, trees, haystacks or other obstructions is available from the firing point, in the direction of aim.
Do not fire in high wind conditions, or where there is a risk of igniting dry crops.
Unfired Rockets should be kept well away from firing point, and stored in a closed box to prevent accidental ignition.
Rockets should be fired one at a time – the use of automatic multiple firing devices is not recommended.
