    Bird B Gone Bird Slope Panels Awarded Several Patents for Effective, Humane Bird Control - October 20, 2014 by admin

    Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2014

    Bird-B-Gone, the leader in bird control products for commercial, industrial and residential applications was recently awarded another patent for its Bird Slope panels. Invented by Bird B Gones founder, Bruce Donoho, the uniquely designed Bird Slope now holds a total of five patents.

    While similar sloped panels exist, they are often either too small or too large to be effective. If the panel is too narrow to cover the entire perching area, a bird will simply land above or below it, rendering it essentially useless. Conversely, a sloped panel that is too large for a particular perch can be unsteady and aesthetically unpleasing. The wide range of possible deployment surfaces and shapes creates a considerable problem in the manufacturing and distribution of sloped bird deterrent products.

    Bird B Gones Bird Slope solves this problem by expanding or contracting its width to fit a variety of different perching areas. This is accomplished by using an extendable panel that alters the effective height of the face. The new panels can be angled between 20 and 80 degrees for the most effective bird control in a variety of venues and to deter many bird species. The panels are ideal for use on open ledges that meet at a 90-degree angle. Bird pests cant get a grip on these angled, slippery PVC panels and slide off whenever they try to land. Effective against all types of birds, the sloped panels install easily under eaves, on ledges, beams and similar areas frequented by pest birds.

    Bird Slope is available in 4-foot long sections and includes 48 feet per box. The panels are glued to virtually any flat surface. Special mounting clips allow the panels to be easily installed vertically on the sides of buildings. Some panels have end caps to prevent birds from getting behind them.

    To blend in with its surroundings, Bird Slope is available in two colors--stone and grey. Each panel is made of UV-protected PVC material for lasting durability in hot sun and harsh weather. For those who need to install bird deterrents next to electrical wiring, the panels are non-conductive for extra safety. A glue trough on the underside of each panel makes for easy installation using standard outdoor polyurethane adhesive.

    Besides being unsightly, pest bird droppings contain acids that can corrode metal, plastic and many other materials. This can jam up windows and doors. Bird droppings are also unhealthy. They can carry any of 60 known diseaseslike salmonellosis. This makes pest birds particularly hazardous in areas where food is stored, processed or served. Bird droppings on walkways and entryways to a commercial building can create serious slip-and-fall hazards. Failing to implement an effective bird deterrent strategy can result in expensive cleanups, repairs and even legal liabilities

    Bird-B-Gone is the worlds largest manufacturer and distributor of bird control products, providing effective and humane solutions to a bird-free environment. The company provides advice, training and installation services for those who need help with these and other bird control measures.

    Taking the RNAi route to disable genes, control pest attack on crops - October 8, 2014 by admin

    Chennai, October 7:

    Biotechnological firms, led by US-based Monsanto and Switzerland-based Syngenta, have come up with a new crop technology called ribonucleic acid interference (RNAi) that will help control insects and pests in a range of crops by disabling their genes.

    The technology, which zeroes in on a genetic sequence unique to a species, will also help protect bees, which are pollinators for one-third of crops in the world.

    RNA, considered a sort of messenger in cells, is a genetic code in every living being for a specific function within a cell for survival.

    RNAi, a discovery that got Nobel prize for Andrew Fire and Craig Mello in 2006, works by interfering with the genetic code or message that RNA carries to protein factories within a cell. A plant cannot produce a particular protein if does not receive any instruction from the RNA code.

    For example, the interference process can be used to disable an enzyme in a cell.

    In soyabean, the technology can be used to specifically target proteins which control plant pigmentation or oil composition.

    A process found in 1990s, RNAi is now increasingly being used in plants. It is a process which scientists claim can kill pests without harming the beneficial ones.

    RNAi is different from the GM technology, in which a gene is injected to kill the pest.

    In the case of RNAi, the technology is specifically targeted to disable the working of a particular cells functioning. Currently, RNAi is being tested in the form of a spray combination on plants.

    South African Aerospace Group Exports Own Satellite - October 5, 2014 by admin

    A South African aerospace group Space Commercial Service Holdings (SCSH) just launched its first self-developed export product at the 65th International Astronautical Congress, the worlds most comprehensive annual space conference held in Toronto, Canada, this past week.

    The product called Phoenix-20 HS is a micro-satellite that uses an advanced remote sensing system based on hyperspectral imaging which breaks up images in different spectral bands and enables it to unveil more details of the earths surface. It has many practical uses for instance monitoring the health of agriculture crops for food security, forest canopies to enable early warnings for pest control, soils and vegetation restoration after mining operations, aquatic ecosystems for future water resource, mapping of natural vegetation, shoreline changes, the effect of climate change and the management of natural disasters.

    The Phoenix was introduced in a paper delivered at one of the 29 symposia held between 29 September and 3 October where 3000 space professionals gathered for the worlds premier space event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The SCSH group exhibited on the South African Department of Trade and Industries pavilion.

    Our biggest breakthrough with this product was firstly to reduce the weight and therefore the cost of the satellite dramatically compared to other satellites doing the same work, and secondly to deliver a usable signal to noise ratio for a compact satellite, says Dr. Sias Mostert, CEO of the Somerset West-based Space Commercial Service Holdings (SCSH) Aerospace Group.

    With the launch costs of satellites making a significant contribution to the viability of a mission and by keeping the total weight of the Phoenix-20 HS below 24kg we are now in the position to deliver the total package between US$2,5m and US$4m depending on the requirements of the client. This is a fraction of the cost previously paid for satellites fulfilling the same functions. It is also ideally suited for constellation deployment, which provides the Earth Observation Community with a valuable new tool designed to address both traditional and niche markets not serviced by current satellites, says Dr. Mostert.

    The Phoenix is available in two options either with a design lifetime of one year and 500km orbital height above the earths surface or a three to five year lifespan at a height between 500 and 700 kilometers. It typically takes around two years from signing of the contract to the launch of a satellite.

    The design and development of the Phoenix was done by Space Advisory Company (SAC) a subsidiary of SCSH. Duncan Stanton was the Project Manager with Martin Jacobs assisting as mission specialist, Hendrik Burger their chief technical officer and Marcello Bartolini as systems engineer.

    The SCSH group who recently established their headquarters in the Somerset Links Business Park consists of a number of subsidiary companies, all specializing in different aspects of the high-tech small satellite industry, and brought with it 48 on-site personnel to Somerset West. This is made up of 37 electrical, mechanical and process engineers, and some 9 specialists in the field of IT, Geo-Risk Management, Geo Information Systems, and Social Development. The balance of staff is made up of sales, marketing, management and administrative personnel.

    Apiary expert in Mystic today to spread word of Monsanto's bee health efforts - September 24, 2014 by admin

    Published September 24. 2014 4:00AM

    Mystic - Jerry Hayes is a little like an itinerant preacher, traveling the country to inspire the already faithful and maybe convert some doubters.

    Hayes, a veteran expert in honey bee health based at Monsanto's St. Louis headquarters, is visiting the company's Mystic office to give a talk today to staff and members of the public about promising work to develop a biological remedy for varroa mites, the parasite that carries numerous viruses to commercial and backyard bee colonies.

    The use of chemical pesticides to control varroa mites, first found in this country in 1987, is believed to be one of the main factors in the "perfect storm" of forces causing Colony Collapse Disorder, the name for the phenomena that first began wiping out hives in 2006.

    Hayes said he's been giving talks like this at various locations both to educate Monsanto staff and the public about a relatively new line of work going on at the international agricultural products company.

    "With the public," he said, "one of my big struggles is that everybody hates Monsanto."

    While he will address the often contentious issue of the company's work with genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, if someone in the audience brings it up, the main subject of his talk will be the promising research toward developing a biological control that would enable beekeepers to control varroa mites without using pesticides. Called Remembee, the product, which would enable bees to acquire genetic resistance to the mites, is about five to seven years from being commercially available, he said.

    Monsanto took on the project when it acquired the Israeli company Beelogics in 2011, and the technology has potential applications for other crop pest control needs, he said.

    "For the Monsanto staff, it's motivating for them to hear that their company is working on improving honey bee health," he said.

    "For the public," said Hayes, who was the chief of the apiary section for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services before joining Monsanto in 2012, "I want them to pause and think about this a little more. The government and the USDA have not been able to do anything" to combat Colony Collapse Disorder but a private corporation may be closing in on a solution.
