Pole height is crucial to ensure your Falcon FrightKite by Falcon Crop Protection works effectively against pest birds. But taller doesn’t necessarily mean better. Here’s how to select the correct pole height for your property.
It’s helpful to understand how and why the Falcon FrightKite works. Small birds are always on the lookout for predators. They’ll steer clear of anything that makes them nervous. They see Falcon FrightKite as a potential threat – even if they’re unsure, they’re not going to take their chances by flying closer to investigate!
Of course, the key then is to make sure pest birds see your Falcon FrightKite before they arrive at your property.
If you have relatively flat land without any boundary trees, then you don’t need a lot of height. The F22K or the F20AK will work great.
If you have hilly land and can use the top of the hills, the F22K/F20AK are again great choices.
If you have hilly land but want your FrightKite lower on the slope, choose the longer pole models such as the F28K or F42AK to counteract for the drop in height.
If you have tall bordering trees that will hide the FrightKite from view, then go for the longer pole models such as the F28K or F42AK to fly it above tree height.
Remember, the flight line will add height too – the kite in the image below is flying at 60 feet above the ground using the F42AK. Just make sure that incoming birds have a clear view of your Falcon Frightkite, and they’ll never get close!
