‘Bird Scaring by Primetake’s’ 12 Gauge Bird Scaring Cartridges have been specifically designed for airport bird control and are used at airfields and airports throughout the United Kingdom as well as leading airports around the world. They can be fired through a signal pistol sleeved to 12 gauge or an unchoked shotgun depending on the product variant. You can see our range of signal pistol cartridges and shotgun cartridges under their own categories.

Each cartridge fires a sub-calibre projectile with delays from 1.3 to 4.0 seconds to give varying ranges. A loud report or continuous screech is given at the designated range.

Our products are designed as non-lethal bird scaring solutions.
