The Bird B Gone Hawk Decoy was developed to intimidate birds in open spaces. Birds such as sparrows, starlings, pigeons and crows will recognize the hawk as a threat and flee the area. HHR: How does a Hawk Decoy scare pest birds away? DG: Visual deterrents appeal to a bird's sight and sense of danger. Red-tailed hawks are known for hunting during the day, while most owl species hunt at night when birds are roosting. This makes the hawk a more identifiable predator. When birds see the decoy, they will want to avoid the area. HHR: Where are the best places to use the Bird B Gone Hawk? DG: The Hawk Decoy is ideal for pro- tecting open outdoor spaces such as backyards, gardens, balconies, patios, boats, overhangs, under eaves, rooftops, fruit trees and other areas where birds are a problem. HHR: How does the Hawk Decoy com- pare to plastic owls? DG: Hawks are predators that hunt dur- Bird B Gone (Cont'd. from p. 1) ing the day. Most birds and small rodents have a natural fear of the hawk; they can see its silhouette and know that danger is near. Owls hunt at night when birds and other rodents are not out. The Red-tailed hawk, which the Bird B Gone decoy por- trays, is a natural predator of most small and medium sized birds and small rodents. HHR: Are the Hawk Decoys easy to install and use? DG: The Hawk Decoy is easy to use. For gardens and outdoor spaces, simply open the hole in the bottom of the decoy and place on a garden stake. It is ideal to move the stake around the yard or garden every few days so that birds will not get used to it being stationary. For fruit tree coverage, simply open the bottom of the decoy, add some sand for weight, and hang in the trees. Again, it is optimal that the decoy be moved around in the trees every few days. HHR: What are the Hawk Decoys made of? Will they last? DG: The Bird B Gone Hawk is made of a durable plastic and meant for outdoor use. The lifelike painted features and menacing look add to the overall effec- tiveness. The Hawk decoy can be hung from rope or twine, weighted down or simply placed in affected areas.

Developed and manufactured in the U.S. by Preformed Line Products ® (PLP), Ranchmate is new to the market even though the technology it uses is tried and true. Ranchmate products can be used with both smooth and barbed wire fenc- ing. The core products in the line are fence repair splices and patented dead- ends (wire end terminators). The splices are used to reconnect any broken or cut wire, and the dead-ends are designed to create a secure loop around a post or cre- ate a radius around the corner post. Both splices and dead-ends are color-coded for specific gauges of wire. The result is a repair that is much stronger than the orig- inal fencing wire, most likely outlasting the fence itself. What makes PLP's splices and dead- end terminations so unique is the pre- formed technology. Before being used, the splices and dead-ends look as though they are already wrapped around an invisible core. When the splices and dead-ends are applied to wire, they fol- low their preformed shape, locking tight- ly in place and creating a solid, rod-like connection. Both products are made from galva- nized steel that won't crack or rust, and are designed to match a variety of barbed Ranchmate (Cont'd. from p. 1) and smooth wire gauges as well as work- ing with wood posts and T-posts. Ranchmate also offers a unique line of fencing accessories, such as its three- dimensional "posted" signs. Sold under the 3D Post™ brand, the all-weather signs can be attached to fences or posts to give a very effective and highly visible "posted," "no trespassing" or "no hunt- ing" notice that is almost impossible to miss from any angle. In addition, Ranchmate offers full- grain cowhide American-made work gloves that come in four lengths, as well as a fence post wire stretcher that makes installation a one-person job along with fence dip tie bars for installing and removing T-post clips. As part of PLP's commitment to the future of American agriculture, the com- pany supports The National FFA Organization™ through official FFA ® licensed Ranchmate products. A portion of every sale of Ranchmate products directly supports the FFA, which works to promote and enhance agricultural edu- cation. Ranchmate products are available at farm, hardware and other retail stores and suppliers across the country. Ranchmate also provides instructional videos on its website.
