scare eyes on sailboat
For years, one Florida family accepted pest bird infestation as an inevitable side effect to their love of sailing. It seemed as though the neighborhood birds – seagulls, mockingbirds, blackbirds, owls, osprey, and worst of all, pigeons – were using their boat as an outhouse. In addition to the constant need to clean up droppings, the birds were causing serious damage to the vessel itself: the wind indication instruments at the top of the mast were being mangled by the large birds that perched upon them. These instruments cost thousands of dollars to replace, and only slightly less to repair! The frustrated sailors began searching for a solution.
Fortunately, their son is an accomplished towboat captain who, in his many years of professional marine experience, has heard of Bird-X. He soon introduced his parents to the Bird-X Scare Eyes. Scare Eyes are inflatable predator replica balloons that can be hung or mounted anywhere to deter birds. Once installed, the immediate improvement was astonishing to the boat owners.
“You can actually observe birds nearing the boat and swerving away in fear!”
This Florida family has been able to enjoy their sailing experiences without the burden of pest birds for over four years now, with the help of Bird-X Scare Eyes. The product has endured high winds, heavy rains, and the intensity of the sub-tropical Florida sun – proving to be quite durable. No longer struggling to clean, wax, and repair their boat constantly, these adventurers turned a stressful (and expensive) situation, into a smooth sail. Now they can finally relax, enjoy the ride, and feel confident that their cherished vessel is protected and looks fantastic!
“Our enjoyment of sailing has been compounded by the use of [the Bird-X Scare Eyes]!”
