The new Vari Scary gas gun from Techneat Engineering will keep pigeons and other pests on the move from amenity turf sports areas. To be launched for the amenity sector at SALTEX 2009, the Vari Scary features an innovative timing mechanism enabling operators to infinitely vary the both the number of salvos and the number of bangs per salvo. Changing the frequency of salvos throughout the day is a more effective deterrent to pigeons, rooks, rabbits and other pests.
The Vari Scary uses a unique electronic controller from Robydome to enable simple programming of the unit. The timer permits different combinations in any 30 minute time segments, to better match bird flock activity.
The timer-controlled Vari Scary overcomes serious limitations of conventional light sensitive units that can trigger firing too early in the morning, or cut off in dull weather to leave the turf exposed to attack. The reliability of the electronic timer gives confidence to set up and leave the Vari Scary, safe in the knowledge it will come on and go off at the designated times. A continuous spark ignition system assures ultimate reliability in firing.
Manufactured in the UK from tough polyethylene the Vari Scary will not rust or corrode. The Techneat CAD design and roto-moulding process has also engineered robust strength at significantly lower weight than other plastic gas guns, making the Vari Scary easy to transport and convenient to move quickly to pest hot-spots.
The integrated leg stand gives excellent stability and ensures maximum coverage, including keeping bird and rabbit pests off reseeded turf and other areas subject to damage. The Vari Scary can be used in combination with the Techneat Eye-Scare to provide a range of audible and visual deterrents to pest activity.
Also available is a new camouflage cover unit, which keeps the Vari Scary discreetly hidden to minimise the risk of theft and maximise the disorientation of pests.
The Vari Scary costs from £295.
