Birding enthusiasts share a similar problem – wild birds fly from the backyard feeders into the home’s windows where they’re injured or die. Millions of wild birds are killed each year from colliding with windows. Well, I have found a solution that you can hardly see, but the birds definitely can!
The solution for stopping those birds from flying into your windows is called “WindowAlert”!
WindowAlert is a low-tack decal that is applied to your home or office windows, and they’re available in several cool designs.
So how does the WindowAlert work? Well, the decal contains a component which brilliantly reflects ultraviolet sunlight.
Birds have vision that is up to 12 times better than that of humans, so the ultraviolet light that is reflected from the decal is basically invisible to humans, but glows like a stoplight for the birds. So, the birds “see” the decals and the windows, and avoid flying into the glass.
Now for best results, position your WindowAlerts about every 3-4 square feet on the outside of the window, so the birds will be able to pick up the reflections. The UV coating may fade over time depending on the exposure, so be sure to replace your decals about every 2 years.
