  3. Pond protection

    Types of pond protection

    You can protect your precious fish from herons in various ways

    • More advanced systems have a motion sensor that detects both herons and cats. A powerful water jet, a bright flash or noises then frighten off the intruder.
    • A decoy heron can also deter herons. Pond netting is another alternative. It stops herons getting to the fish and they will lose interest in your pond. Netting is available in different sizes to fit all ponds.
    • Reflecting daylight is also an effective way to keep herons at bay. The constantly reflecting light caused by a reflective spinner or silver ball frightens them off.
