‘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. Range distances vary from 40m to 90m dependent on angle of fire and weather conditions. Our most recently introduced product: the Icarus 12G™ has an exceptional range of 115m ± 10m which provides users with unrivaled performance and effectiveness. More details on the Icarus 12G™ bird scaring cartridge can be found here.
Our products are designed as non-lethal bird scaring solutions.
‘Bird Scaring by Primetake’ also supply both 38mm and 26.5mm Signal Pistols, and when used with a Primetake supplied adapter can be used to fire our 12 gauge bird scaring cartridges. Cleaning kits and maintenance services are available for the Signal Pistol products.
