Background information and definitions
Farmers can use bright light to chase crop-raiding primates away from their fields during the day. The light source is usually a spinning glass prism that reflects light (e.g. Meerkat Optical Wildlife Rerouter). The rationale is that the spinning prism reflects light and that the bright lights will scare primates away.
