If you're going out of your mind trying to scare those crows away from your yard with a straw-stuffed shirt, or a plastic owl, or a water sprayer with a sensor, you might consider trying a few simpler items - reflective repellents.
Bird Boss Reflective Bird Scare products by Homescape Creations offer three bird repellents that won't harm avian interlopers, but will discourage them from landing on your trees, your porch, your car, and whatever else you want to protect from bird damage or poop on your property.
You can use any one of these popular products or a combination of all three, affordably, depending on the types of areas that need coverage.
1. Homescape Creations Reflective Holographic Owls (Scarecrows)
The combination of reflective and holographic is unbeatable when it comes to deterring birds. All you need is a little breeze to move them (they are very lightweight). The fact that these guys are intended to represent Great Horned Owls may work simply because the owls are large (16 x 8 inches) and because of the eyes on the owls that are eerily like those of the largest prey birds. In any case, between the reflection, holography, and the attached bells jingling in the wind, I think I would be spooked too!
Included in this set of Homescape Creations Holographic Owls "Scarecrows" are 2 Holographic Owls, two 12-inch spiral hanging rods, 2 suction cups, and 2 reflective scare rods (another Homescape Creations product - see number 2, below). The suction cups will help you attach the Owls to windows - the Owls work great to keep birds from flying into your windows.
While the Homescape Creations Bird Repellent Reflective Scare Rods may look a little strange in the above image, it's because they are supposed to be reflecting a "cloudy sky." Just to clarify, these shiny, reflective rods will reflect what's actually in front of them as they twirl in the wind.
Though narrow, the Bird Repellent Reflective Scare Rods are 15 inches long and, if exposed to light on both sides, have a good range of effectiveness when the wind blows. You can separate these by several feet, use them in trees, on overhangs, even on your boat!
Shiny stainless steel - (okay!) in the shape of a big bad owl - is sooo reflective, and the Stainless Steel Bird Repellent Discs are super-reflective and jingly too! Sixteen discs (8 double disks) are included with swivel hooks. I would hang these from patio rims or other personal spaces where you don't want avian visitors.
Bells tossing in the breeze add another repellent that will gently encourage bothersome birds to go elsewhere.
Homescape Creations' products are effective and safe - safe for us to use and safe for our avian friends.
That's the buzz for today!
