How It Works Irri-Tape is the long-lasting holographic foil tape that drives away birds. This super thick, sturdy tape scares away birds with: â¢ Visual Scare: birds are scared by the material’s sheen, as the light causes constantly changing reflections and shadows. â¢ Sound scare: birds are rattled by the fierce metallic noise irritape makes as it blows in the breeze. â¢ Physical Deterrent: birds are blocked by Irri-Tape and its brackets on any surface. Pests Repelled Irri-Tape is extremely effective at repelling all birds, but is especially useful for use with woodpeckers, pigeons, sparrows, starlings, crows, blackbirds, grackles, seagulls and gulls, swallows, ducks, geese, and more. Where to Use Ideal for use in yards, orchards, gardens, vineyards, rooftops, wood siding, ponds, parks, boat docks, private beaches, patios, balconies, or any area with access to light and wind. Installation Simply cut Irri-Tape into desired lengths and either tie, nail, tack, or glue directly onto areas to protect, or use the included metal mounting brackets. Full instructions included.
