Agricultural Bird Scarers

When the Bangalore first arrived in the early 1980s, it revolutionised agricultural crop protection.

Micro-controlled, reliable, wind and weather proof, easy to use and now solar powered for extra convenience.

The Bangalore remains the farmers' favourite for effective crop protection.


No more heavy batteries

The Bangalore's solar panel keeps the mini internal battery topped up all year round. Just add a bottle of gas and you're ready to go.

Reliable in all weathers

The Bangalore's been tried and tested in the worst of the British weather. In rain, wind, snow and gales, it'll keep on protecting your crops.
