your fish from
You have beautiful fish in your pond that you love and cherrish. One day you may come out
to feed your fish and notice that some of them are missing or have been taken out of the
pond and have been eaten!!
Your precious fish are vulnerable to being captured by local animals that live outdoors.
Animals will find your pond and try to capture and eat your fish. This is a common thing but
here are some solutions that can help you protect your beloved fish.

The Scarecrow is a motion activated irrigation line, that triggers
when a predator invades within the pond area. The Water is dispersed
in the area that the scarecrow is set to protect.
There is a radius setting that can be adjusted, for the scarecrow to
determine how much coverage right to left. It also has a sensitivity
level switch, that can be set to determine how sensitive you want it
to react to the presense of a predator. The water lead that runs the
Scarecrow is a constant water feed, not a sprinkler line.
This Scarecrow is very affective from keeping invasive animals away
from you precious fish. It works very well and will protect your fish.
It also works on non invasive animals that will visit your water feature.

Fishing line is installed above a pond to prevent birds from swooping down and attacking
your fish. There are native birds that will fly down and dive, right into your pond and capture
your beloved fish. This can be prevented with the fishing line going across the top of your
pond in a irregular zig zag pattern. The birds fear getting tangled in this fishing line and will
get fustrated and fly away.
The fishing line can be put low over a pond to prevent the birds that prey along the ponds
edge. Certain breeds of birds, like stand on the edge of a pond and peck the fish out. Cranes
and egret birds are known ground dwellers.
Clear mono fishing line is not as noticeable as if a cable or rope would be. You want to keep
the natural look, without having unsitely cables or a net over the pond.
Fishing line above a pond
We install a Rock Cave on the edge of a pond to prevent predators from
capturing the fish. A flat slab rock is placed on the aquatic plant shelf edge
in a corner of a pond. It is supported on three sides. This creates a over hang
cave effect and the fish can hide from predators with protection.
