6. In the United Kingdom, where the use of scarecrows as a protector of crops goes back to times immemorial, and where dialects were rife, there are a wide range of alternative names. Which is not another name for scarecrow?

A. Bubbles
B. Balloons
C. Kites
D. B and C

B. Dogs
C. Cats
D. Birds
E. B and D

E. B and D
TOPICS: The control of birds by trained border collies has been used at aerodromes, golf courses and agricultural land. Falcons and hawks have also been used successfully to control not only birds but rodent populations. The success of this method of bird control is based on the fact that many birds have a natural fear of falcons and hawks as predators, so their presence in the area encourages problem species to disperse.

A. Squirt gun
B. Model airplane
C. Bicycle
D. Baseball bat

B. Model airplane
TOPICS: Radio-controlled model aircraft have been used to scare or 'haze' bird pests since the early 1980s, mainly over airfields, but have also been used over agricultural areas, fisheries and landfill sites. This method has been shown to be very effective and birds habituate more slowly to a treatment in which they are being actively hazed.
10. Ultrasonic scarers are electronic devices that produce what kind of sound?
A. Too high a pitch for people to hear
B. Too low a pitch for people to hear
C. Too bass a pitch for people to hear
D. Too treble a pitch for people to hear

A. Too high a pitch for people to hear
TOPICS: Ultrasonic scarers are electronic devices that produce high volume ultrasound. The sound is designed to be too high pitched for people to hear, but audible to most birds. This has the advantage to preventing disturbance to neighbouring households. However, these can be heard by some people, particularly females and the young, and although this ability is generally lost with age it can cause discomfort and even headaches for those in proximity who have sensitive high-range hearing.
