    Zon Propane Cannons have been used worldwide to scare pest birds and wildlife away from agricultural crops, airports, disposal sites and other critical areas for nearly 70 years. Like the mechanical Zon® Mark 4 Cannon, the Electronic Zon EL08 provides pressure regulated sonic blasts to frighten and disorient pest birds and wildlife.

    The Zon EL08 Cannon comes standard with legs that stand it about one foot (0.3m) off the ground. One Zon gun will protect approximately 1 to 5 acres, depending on the shape and topography of the field. Zon guns are ideal for bird control in vineyards, orchards, row crops — practically any large, open area with pest birds and wildlife.

    Please note: Cannons are available in the United States & Puerto Rico only. Propane tank and 12-volt battery are sold separately.


    • Loud:

      Blast volume up to 130 decibels.

    • Multiple blast capability:

      Electronic timer can produce 1, 2, 3 or 4-blast series with approximately 5 seconds between consecutive blasts.

    • Programmable configuration:

      Blast intervals can be set between 1 minute and 60 minutes.

    • Random blast settings:

      Electronic timer provides 3 different random blast interval settings for the EL08 cannon (1 to 5, 1 to 10, and 1 to 15 minutes).

    • Enhanced 24-hour timer:

      There's no need to purchase a separate on/off timer. The EL08 cannon includes a 24-hour timer that can be programmed with up to 4 daily on/off periods (compared to just 1 on/off period with standard Zon timer).

    • On-demand ready:

      The Zon EL08 includes an auxiliary input for optional control by the Push-Button Activator.

    • Virtually maintinance free:

      The only moving part on the EL08 cannon is the valve that controls the gas flow. No more broken springs to replace, no worn out diaphragms - less time in the repair shop means more time protecting your investment!


    Pest birds and wildlife such as wild turkeys, geese, deer and coyotes. Excellent for use in agricultural, commercial and industrial applications.
