Keep Birds Off Power Lines
Sure, it can be a somewhat poetic image—a couple of birds sitting in bliss on a power line, high above traffic and the worries of the world below. But multiply the scene by just several more birds and the image quickly turns ominous. More importantly, this scenario can be damaging, for both the birds and the power equipment. If you’ve been looking for an effective and humane way to keep birds off power lines, it’s time to try the WhirlyBird Repeller!
How Does It Work?
The WhirlyBird Repeller keeps birds off power lines by combining several proven bird scaring methods. These methods include auditory and visual scare tactics that deters birds without harming them:
- Predator Disguise. Modeled on the Peregrine falcon, a natural predator of many bird species, the WhirlyBird Repeller is predator-sized with bright yellow eyes.
- Random Movement & Sound. As the WhirlyBird spins and vibrates in the wind, it mimics both predator and human sounds—such as the beating of wings or the sound of running.
- Scattered Light. Reflective labeling scatters sunlight in a random pattern to deter many bird species.
- Long-Term Effectiveness. With its randomized action, the WhirlyBird Repeller helps to prevent birds from adapting to it.
Power Line Bird Problems
Ever wonder why birds on power lines don’t get electrocuted? The answer is simple. They don’t conduct enough electricity, and they don’t interrupt the circuit. Nevertheless, power lines affect birds—and birds affect power lines—in several key ways:
- Electrocution. While birds aren’t electrocuted simply by perching on power lines, they can be electrocuted if they move beyond the wires. Any time a bird completes a circuit by touching two components of the wiring and/or poles, electrocution can occur.
- Collision. Electrocution is more common when birds accidentally collide with power lines. Other collisions can be harmful or fatal for birds, especially if they collide with the poles. Some collisions—especially by larger birds—may even cause damage to the power lines themselves.
- Nesting Interference. Some birds love to pick at wiring or insulation fibers for nesting materials. Others may choose to nest directly on or inside the power line poles.
- Pole Damage. As mentioned above, both collision and nesting are primary examples of pole damage, but other species such as woodpeckers can be devastating to power line poles.
