Product Information

Keep blue herons from eating the fish out of your pond

  • Deters other blue herons from approaching your pond
  • Blue heron decoy has realistic tail

Great blue herons are very large birds that can eat a small pond of fish in a matter of days. This great blue heron decoy is a convenient way to repel herons and keep your fish safe. Blue herons are territorial by nature and aggressively defend their area. Incoming herons will see the decoy and avoid eating at your pond to keep away from conflict. Tough, plastic decoy has realistic detail and resists fading, chipping, dents and cracks. Measures 30"Lx11-1/4"Wx9-1/2"H and includes a 23"L metal stake. Move decoy frequently to increase effectiveness and use along with other deterrent methods. Imported.
NOTE: Decoy should not be used during the early spring mating period.

          Was too good to be true...

          Comments about Great Blue Heron Decoy:

          I lost all of my pond fish to a GBH visitor so I was told to buy a decoy. I bought the decoy and some new fish for my pond. All fish were gone within 24 hours - decoy was not effective in detering these hungry birds. The decoy did not work. I hope you all have better luck than I did. Back to the ugly nets :(
          On a better note, the decoy was well constructed and realistic. I am keeping it for decoration as it does look good!

          Pros

          • Realistic

          Cons

          • Doesn't work

          Best Uses

          • Garden ornament

          Comments about Great Blue Heron Decoy:

          The blue heron decoy looks fairly realistic but does not work as a heron deterrent. The day after I placed it next to my pond, a great blue heron landed not more than 10 feet from the decoy. It makes a great garden ornament, but apparently doesn't effectively deter herons.

          • Just what I wanted

            • Protection for my fish

            Comments about Great Blue Heron Decoy:

            I researched ways to keep my koi in my pond safe. The research indicated that a blue heron decoy was an effective way, but also indicated that there were some specific features (such as the gold color of the eyes) that were important. I looked on line at a number of outlets, but was most impressed by the blue heron I found at Gempler's. The decoy arrived very quickly, and was just what I wanted. I couldn't have been more pleased. Now I have to see if it keeps the live blue herons away.
