New! WhirlyBird Mast Installation

Posted on Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Even though we are in the middle of winter, the birds haven’t left us and even more birds could be around if you are in a southern state. Take a look here at a mast installation the inventor of the WhirlyBird repeller has been testing for a while. Rob writes,

My mast mounted WhirlyBird finally gave out during a 50 mph wind storm about a month ago.  The next day, a huge flock of blackbirds arrived and perched all over the rigging of my boat, painting the deck and cabin top white.  They made themselves at home and partied on my rigging for about a week, at which point I installed a new WhirlyBird.   I’m happy and relieved to say that the birds bolted and have kept away ever since.

Please feel free to contact us if you’d like to learn more.

Cold Weather Maintenance Tips for Your WhirlyBird Repeller

Posted on Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Now that warm weather temperatures are on the run, perhaps  nuisance birds in your area have temporarily migrated to a new climate. Your WhirlyBird Repeller may not need to work as hard now and is ready for a break before those pesky birds return and try to mess your boat, dock, or communication towers.

Here are a few cold weather maintenance tips to extend the useful life of your WhirlyBird Repeller so it is ready to get back to work when nuisance birds return:

  • If strong storms or freezing temperatures are predicted, bring in your WhirlyBird to minimize wear.
  • Periodically rinse the WhirlyBird head (including the white Teflon bushing) with warm, soapy water. This will remove any buildup of salt, dirt, or pollen that may slow the spinning and wobbling motion of the WhirlyBird Repeller.
  • If birds are not a problem this time of year, bring in your WhirlyBird and put it out when nuisance birds return.

As always, if you have any questions about use or installation of the WhirlyBird repeller, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

WhirlyBird Breeze has arrived!

Posted on Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

 “Simply, less wind, more spin,” is how a Kansas customer described the WhirlyBird “Breeze,” our new bird repeller model!

Everyone at WhirlyBird Solutions is proud and excited that our new WhirlyBird “Breeze” has arrived and is ready to help repel your nuisance and pest birds. Manufactured from the same tough and durable polycarbonate plastic as our original model, the Breeze is about 50% larger and with thinner wings than the WhirlyBird Pro. The Breeze is our answer to customer requests for a WhirlyBird repeller that will work to repel nusance birds in lighter, more intermittent breezes, or more sheltered locations, like a backyard pool. Our original model, WhirlyBird Pro is still available, and works great in areas with constant, steady, higher velocity winds, such as coastal areas or the tops of cell phone  or communication towers or elevated light poles.

WhirlyBird Pro or Breeze are the same price, $64.99, plus shipping and handling. You can order either model from the Order page, just choose your model from the drop down menu, then click the “Buy Now” box. You’ll be taken to PayPal for secure payment.

If you have any questions about which model, Pro or Breeze, will keep away your nuisance birds, please call or email us, and we”ll be glad to discuss your needs.

Keep Birds Off Communication Towers

Posted on Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Thank you to David Lee Meisenburg for his helpful comments about his use and installation of many WhirlyBird Repellers on communication towers and antennas. Read his remarks, below.

My company, Universal Tower Services provides site maintenance and management for the telecommunications industry.  Since 2011, I have installed many WhirlyBird Repellers on communication towers throughout the Midwestern states where roosting birds were a problem and resulting in complaints.   Notably, I found the WhirlyBirds to be an effective solution to the bird problems the tower owners were experiencing – they kept the birds away!  Experience has shown me that at least two WhirlyBird Repellers per level gives optimal results.  Based on my experience, I strongly recommend this product for use on communication towers.  The WhirlyBird Repeller does what it is supposed to do, no doubt about it.

Thank you for these helpful remarks. If your company or tower is bothered by destructive, nuisance birds and vultures, we can help, just give us a call.
