What Our Customers Have Said:
These kites are unreal or should I say REAL. My friend has been
using the osprey as a deterrent for seagulls to stay off his boat...
and it really works... that's why I want one.
Your company should advertise that the birds of prey are excellent
deterrents for seagulls, etc. Do you know what boaters go through
to keep gulls off their boats? They spend a lot of time and money.

On 6-11-04 I ordered 2 of your Osprey Kites and a 31 ft Fiberglass
pole. It works, the Osprey does fly like a real hawk.
We have 6 acres of Highbush Blueberries divided into 3 fields and I
needed something for bird control. The Osprey has only been up for
two weeks. I only fly it every other day, and I move it around so the real
birds don't become accustomed to it in the one place. For now, when
the Osprey is up and on duty, the Sparrows and Black Birds dine
The Osprey works better than Owls and Ballons and doesn't break and
string all over the field like what over the row tape will. So far it is the
best bird deterant other than a bus load of kids. The Jackite Osprey flies
sometimes when the flags wll not wave in the wind.

I have bought several preassembled Osprey kites and have flown them over my garden to keep the critters away. It works. They fly 24/7 and last about six months. Nothing lasts forever. The shop where I usually buy them in Pismo Beach was out of stock so I looked on the internet and put in an order. I didn't realize they weren't assembled until I talked with someone who called from the ship over incorrect shipping charges listed on their website. Yuck. Against my better judgement I bought two. The assembly instructions are not the best and if we hadn't had an old one available I'm not sure we would have ever gotten it assembled. IMO offer both assembled and if one has the time and the patience to assemble one take that choice. Time is money.
We've had one of these kites fixed to a post in our yard for several years and it's been very durable. We enjoy the animated action it provides for us in gentle and heavier breezes.
