Sea Lions Are Not Fans of Wacky Waving Air Dancers
Another victory for inflatable dancing Air Dancers®. Our dynamic dancing inflatable product is mostly used for promotional advertising, but also has an extremely successful track record filled with positive results when being used for animal and pest control applications. LookOurWay has also designed and marketed a form of inflatable dancing tube man called the Air Ranger® specifically for commercial farming uses. The Air Ranger® uses reflective tape materials to add the sun reflective properties to the line of the defense. You can check it out here Air Ranger®.
See the article from the Huffington Post about the battle between an Oregon Port and their sea lion natives:
An Oregon port that's being overrun by sea lions has revealed its latest weapon to scare off the invasive animals: giant inflatable tube dancers. The unusual blow-up dolls — typically seen promoting used car lots and in this popular episode of "Family Guy" — are the latest effort to scare away the sea lions from Port of Astoria docks. The port's previous attempts, which consisted of beach balls, ribbons and stakes and even a fake orca, literally went belly-up — the whale, at least. So far, video shows the giant neon dancers working.
Immediately after the dancers were turned on Thursday, sending their plastic bodies flapping wildly in the air, most of the sea lions desperately dove for cover in the water.
