Arc Nemesis is a free-standing, arced wire device that works to prevent gulls, medium, and large sized birds from perching on lighting systems and to keep the ground free of bird droppings. This minimally visible design is easily installed and made with a variety of materials that stand up to extreme environments and including materials that are RF transparent and PIM free.

Not only does this design pose a physical and visual barrier to perching, but it also reduces bird mortality from roadway perching. The Arc Nemesis prevents toxic and hazardous bird droppings from accumulating on equipment.
