  • Why dont u use or cover the lake with the nets or drop ball that use to minimize water vaporize in a damn? Instead of pour money in hassling the bird away

    MatdangzMatdangzVor 14 Tage
    • Those would not even work. Drop ball = that is acid and would even get dissolved in the water A net = that acid can evaporate so it could even just melt that net for a considerable time I guess

    Mark CastroMark CastroVor 15 Tage

    • @Azfir the cool a polyethylene net can resist any acid except nitric (boil @83°C) acid and fulming sulfuric acid (boil @68°C) and assume it's too hot for the birds to float on such a hot water so i guess it's not these kind of acid and a net may work in the end .

      Adnan LaghzaouiAdnan LaghzaouiVor 7 Tage
