Daniel, I would be interested in hearing what you learn from those books, especially "Understanding Toots" (Roots :)
I used shipping tape to attach wires that I hang from tree branches.
Other people have said they have good results hanging them on wires over their strawberries, tomatoes, and ect. Some have good results hanging them over balconies to keep poop off the balcony.
They should be hung where wind can move them, making noise, and where sunlight can flash from the diamonds.
I read some mention of them scaring away other animals, but didn't read enough to determine if that was true or not.
Kathy, I think I puchased mine many years ago on the internet. I just looked for it and Amazon has 18 pages of different brands. I also found stores that sell it: Walmart, Home Depot, and Ace hardware. I didn't find any with the round "eyes", like I have. They are all dimond shaped light reflectors, but most of the brands have good reviews. Here's what one kind looks like:
Kathy, I've never tried the aluminum pie pan method of scaring birds, but I did buy plastic strips with hundreds of laser created spots that look like eyes. I put them in my cherry trees and they kept the birds from eating all my cherries. It appeared they ate none after that.
Having large piles of tree chips is probably going to breed mice, even in the middle of the city. The one I found in the house may be the start of that. I plan on spreading them out over my whole place, which should cut-down on the breeding.
Thomas, wish I had the land to be a plant rescuer like you :)
Hope you get some apples in the spring.
To mow, or not to mow, that is the question.
Spud, I am happy to learn you did not get flooded out with broken pipes, or fall into a mole hole. I always look for your comments and enjoy the things you write. Keep it up, if you have time, please.
