Reflective tape confuses the bravest of birds. Even a slight breeze will cause a fluttering sound as well as mirror-bright reflections. Scare Tape is most effective on flocking birds attacking young seedlings, fresh germinating seeds or ripening fruit (do not put the tape up before fruit begins to ripen). Streamers can be attached to tree limbs, trellises or sprinkler risers. Use 2' long streamers in orchards and 8"-10 streamers in vegetable rows or grapes, at a minimum rate of one per 10"-20 within the problem area. This reflective prismatic pattern film annoys all kinds of birds with its rainbow flash of colors as well as the fluttering sound.
I tied strips of the scare tape to my fruit trees and so far, so good. Our trees aren't very old and don't produce a lot of fruit, so I can't say how well it will work on a large tree.Review by Katie (on 12/19/12)
