Blue Heron Decoy

When they are eating your fish out of your koi ponds, water gardens and hatchery tanks there is absolutely nothing ‘GREAT’ about this big and aggressive bird.

The Great Blue Herons’ appetite for fish, crawfish and other marine species make them a huge problem for hatcheries, nurseries as well as backyard koi ponds and water gardens. While they can be a pain, they are still a protected species (US Migratory Bird Treaty Act) and must be treated with the utmost respect and care.

One of the most humane and low-impact deterrents is a Blue Heron Decoy. Great Blue Herons are territorial and will aggressively defend their hunting areas from all intruders, including other herons. Made to look like a young Great Blue Heron, the decoy is seen by other herons who then fly on to find unoccupied hunting grounds and avoid an uncessary confrontation.

To get the most from this low-impact visual deterrent, you need to move it frequently. Reposition the decoy along the shoreline to maintain the appearance of an actively hunting Great Blue Heron. If you leave it in one place to long the competing birds will see that it poses no threat and ignore it.
When you place the decoy, make sure it can be easily seen. Don’t position it in tall weeds or under tree limbs where it would be tough to spot. For smaller bodies of water, use one decoy. For larger lakes and ponds you can use multiple decoys as long as they are spaced far apart.

Avoid using the heron decoy until after the heron mating season is over (usually after May). If used during this time the decoy may actually attract a live mate - a somewhat counter-productive result.
