Nite Guard Repellent Tape is easy to install. For woodpecker, cut 5-6 strips of flash tape 30” long. Place the strips 6-7 feet above the area you need to protect. The tape should be able to blow around in the wind, so adhere only one end of the strip to your roof, a post, tree branch, or other surface.

We have thousands of robins that migrate into our area in the fall and winter to eat the juniper berries. They leave a terrible mess of droppings everywhere. My horse water troughs were a favorite spot for them to drink and contaminate the water with their droppings. I used duct tape to attach the repellent tape strips to the fence pipe near the troughs and it has worked perfectly! It isn't easy to dump troughs and clean them frequently here in the winter. Your product has made my life simpler and given my horses clean, drinkable water. I am confident I will be able to repel the robins from other areas they chose to frequent. Thank you so much for this product!
