Farmers now use lasers to stave off birds

I feel bad for the birds but using lasers to ward them off is pretty neat. I wonder how the birds will adapt or evolve to lasers though.

Scarecrows! Always reminds me this word when I hear about stave off birds. But the latest trend in keeping pests away from crops sounds like something straight out of Star Wars. And this process is really cost-effective, cause retinal injuries for them, the lasers is noisy and so on. What about the steps have been taken to ensure the safe use of these lasers around humans?

LOL When I read the title I thought they're burning poor birds with lasers. But they're just making them a party every night :D I don't think this will be good long-term solution. Birds are adaptable animals and will soon learn it's just a light show.

You got to give it up to them though, using lasers is a very unique solution to keeping birds away.
