Heron Problem in Tennessee

Post by Noreen Bole » Sun, 23 Nov 1997 04:00:00



I'm looking for a scarecrow-type device that emits a very high pitch sound
to scare away predators at my pond.  I know one exists - I saw it advertised
in a magazine in the summer - I need it for a gift for Christmas.  Anyone
know where I can find it.  Not the water emiting one from the koi-joy
people.  Thanks - N

Heron Problem in Tennessee

Post by Foxe » Tue, 25 Nov 1997 04:00:00


shotgun with #4 or #6 work the best, and cost a lot less than the
electronic, or decoy or any other type. Even a half assed placed shot
with a 22 short does wonders. Let the dam thing hurt and die a slow
agonizing death like they cause the fish to do. A heron a day, keeps
the fish happy. As for being territorial, BULLSHIT, I have had as many
as 5 herons on my one pond at a time.

kill em all!

Pretty simple, but evidently to simple for you to figure out. You
shoot them on the wing, (thats when they take to the air), and yes,
hopefully you get the pellets in their wing(s) and everywhere else.
Noooooooreally, shoot them on the ground, and then patch your
liner......sheeesssh No wonder you talk to your fish!

You have the wrong person.  I don't talk to my fish (only once in awile).  I
wonder how long it'll be before you hit a car or a neighbor.   Interesting
thought.
