Great solution for boats
from santa barbara, ca
About Me Midrange Shopper
Comments about Bird Scarer Windsock:
These wind socks work GREAT to keep birds from camping out on my power boat while it's in the slip in the marina. I have a 35' boat and have 4 of them on the flybridge and the movement and reflection they provide work well. The small metal clasps do rust quickly and the mylar fades within a few weeks, but they still keep the birds away. They're a good, affordable solution to keep "nesting" birds off of the boat & canvas.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

Keeps birds away
from Surprise, Az
The bird scarer is placed in my window because birds kept flying in to it, due to the sun's glare.
Every presentation does not materialize
from Chicago, IL
I hung a clothes line over the garden where I WANTED it to blow. I tied plastic bags to the rope to stop it just short of not hanging over the garden. Worked like a charm. However, these Sea Gulls still continued to land on and break my tomatoes or pull up my peppers.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
Bird Scarer Scares the Birds!!!!
from Lake Gaston - NC
About Me Budget Shopper
We have 2 boats and birds love to sit on the lift cables and do their "pooping" on our boats. A constant mess to have to clean up. We put 3 up over each boat and so far have had great success. 2 neighbors were impressed enough to buy some for their own boat docks. We also have a few spares in the event the wind blows one away - it can get pretty windy here at times.
Hoping this works
I ordered 6 of these to hang from my boat rigging. After being assaulted by seagulls and osprey my boat smelled and looked like a fish factory. I spent an entire weekend cleaning the mess away. Sure hope these wind socks do the trick!

Love the Unique Design
We live in the middle of Woodpecker territory in the Forest. They are a constant problem what with drilling our Deck posts and house wood siding, even though it is not bare wood. Bought this and as soon as we put it up on the Deck post where they had started drilling, the Woodies moved on, literally. They did not and have not come back since we hung it. Love it and it does the job. A little pricey though but worth the investment. I like the design as it is attractive and nicer to look at than plain bird scare tape. It adds a unique decoration to the house that no one else has. It also is quiet and not noisey like the typcial bird scare tape we have under the decks. This one is right outside our bedroom and we don't hear it at all yet we can hear the bird scare tape under the deck at the other end of the house. This item is made so that it has a hook that swivels and is very easy to attach and it won't come off and never gets twisted up. The only downfall in this product is that in high winds, it does shed and fall apart. Quite a few of the hanging strings just fell off but with normal winds, it seems to hold up. We also forgot and left it out in a couple of snow storms and it actually survived. I would recommend this product and in fact even bought a couple more this year for the other decks since the first one worked. It really did scare of the Woodies and they are leaving our house alone now. Sorry to the poor neighbor whose house they have moved on to. I really am happy with this as it does the job and looks great while doing so.

This product was recommended to me to keep a bothersome woodpecker from pecking my roof. Attaching this to my roof was a bit tricky as I had to call on a trusty contractor friend to help me, well set it up for me. Aside from needing help, this seems to be keeping Woody Woodpecker off my roof.
