Hornet Deer Whistle Significantly Lowers Risk of Deadly Car-Deer Collisions

Share Article

On many roads in America, your chances of hitting a deer are 1 in 13. Collisions can result in thousands of dollars of damage to your vehicle, heightened insurance premiums, and, most costly of all, death. In the past, air-activated deer whistles have failed to provide enough protection. But a new safety device, the electronically controlled Hornet Deer Whistle, now provides an alternative to those seeking to avoid a deer-vehicle collision.

Recent studies have shown that air-activated whistles may not be within the hearing range of most native deer species. The Hornet Deer Whistle is a new type of electronically controlled deer whistle which emits a high-pitched sound audible only by deer and other animals several hundred feet in front of your car. At the unfamiliar sound, the animals freeze, discouraging them from darting in front of your car.    

Deer population in the United Sates is at an estimated 20 million, and on the rise. With over 4 million miles of road ribboning across the Unites States, there are over 1.5 million deer-vehicle accidents a year. Accidents are particularly frequent in New England, in the Great Lakes area, and in forested areas of the South such a Georgia, Alabama, and North Carolina.

Over a three-year period, the Hornet was tested on police and emergency vehicles in some of the most deer-accident prone areas of the country, and it racked up millions of accident-free miles. Hundreds of stations now require Hornets on all their vehicles. Retailing at $39.95, the Hornet Deer Whistle is now available to the public. As deer population continues to rise, so does the danger and frequency of deer-vehicle collisions. A device like the Hornet Deer Whistle can significantly decrease the hazard.
