Nighttime Predator Protection
The Nite Guard, sold by
Game Farm, Inc., will help protect your waterfowl
from destructive nighttime predators.
The Nite Guard is a maintenance
free, flashing unit that receives its power from either direct sun
or any kind of daylight. It requires no batteries or electricity.
They flash nightly even if you have several weeks of continuous
cloudy weather. Once installed, you never have to touch them, unless
you want to reposition them. The units are completely sealed,
weatherproof, high & low temperature resistant and will last for two
years or more.
The red flashing light can deter
owls, raccoons, bobcats, opossums, coyotes, muskrats, bears,
cougars, wild boars, minks, weasels, fox and many more. To a
predator, a flashing light gives the impression of another eye
watching them. The predator feels threatened and simply leaves the
area. The color red also causes most night creatures to shrink away
because it reflects off of their own eyes.
Mounting for protection from
owls: The optimum situation is to mount 4 units on a single post
10 to 14 feet in the air. The post should be centered in your yard
area and each light should be facing a different direction (to cover
north, south, west and east). Owls can see the lights from as far as
a half mile away.
Mounting for protection from
ground predators: Mount the units about 10-20 inches off the
ground and anywhere from 30 to 50 to 100 feet apart. The lights
should be mounted so that they flash away from the area to be
