Henskes experimented with lenses, mirrors, wave lengths and phases and tried the self made sources of light on all kinds of things. He noticed that animals were frightened by a certain type of laser. With the laser his fields and meadows were kept clear, not only of birds, but also of deer and rabbits. It is sufficient to use the laser on the birds for 5 minutes in the morning and evening.
In addition new markets have presented themselves. Henskes in the meantime is in contact with Schiphol and already has an arrangement with Total. The oil company is interested in a completely automated variety of his Agrilaser, which he will start testing. In the beginning of next year tests will be started to establish whether this appliance can keep drilling platforms, with heavy helicopter traffic, free of birds.
