Deterring methods | Electronic Devices (“Skaapwagter”,Sirens, Lights, Jackal chasers etc.)
Methods and techniques to keep predators away from camps include new inventions by farmers. These include the “Skaapwagter” which releases smells and sounds that unnerve predators and keep them away from camps. Something that works like a charm, especially in smaller camps, is radios that broadcast a radio station loudly at night, in combination with a flashing yellow or orange lights, making the predators extremely sceptical of chasing the mutton. However, this system must be moved and changed every night because jackal and lynx are not stupid and get used to it very quickly.
