WhirlyBird Repeller

The WhirlyBird Repeller is the simple, safe, and effective solution to repel and keep nuisance birds off boats, docks, navigational aids, solar panels, and other commercial and residential settings where bird droppings are a hazard to health and property. Tested and used by the US Coast Guard, the WhirlyBird Repeller spins and wobbles in the wind and reflects sunlight in a constantly changing manner that frightens birds and prevents them from becoming acclimated.
