At Symterra, we’re building a future where humans and wildlife can coexist. By developing innovative technologies, we aim to create sustainable solutions that benefit both mankind and nature.

Origins of Symterra

Flock Off, began with a vision to solve bird infestation issues using advanced, humane technology. Founded by a team that includes a quantum physicist and experts in ornithology, Flock Off developed an innovative electromagnetic system. This technology disrupts birds’ navigation abilities, deterring them from landing without harm. 

Over the years, Flock Off has evolved, continuously improving its solutions, defining what it means to lead innovations within ethical bird control systems. Today, as Symterra, the commitment to innovation and humane practices continues, providing effective solutions worldwide.

Our Mission: To support sustainable human progress

We value two things that sometimes seem to clash — mankind’s ability to grow and thrive, and nature’s right to do the same. By creating technologies that help humans and wildlife to coexist, we’re building a future that’s good for everyone.

Our Vision: Ethics and success driven by the same technology

When a business is confronted with unwanted animals, they often have to choose between their ethics and what’s right for their business. We believe that with today’s technology, that choice is no longer necessary.

Innovation

We apply innovative technologies to real problems that have yet to be properly solved.

Collaboration

We work closely with experts to develop solutions that benefit businesses and their environments.

Why Symterra?

Efficacy

We’re committed to creating solutions that are easy to implement and maintain — because you don’t need to replace one hassle with another.
