Or you could do what I did and use a scrap of stainless steel hardware cloth from McMaster-Carr, shaped to the boom end and held on with gorilla tape. Decidedly low-tech, but the starlings have never returned.

Just sayin', for the benefit of other DIY'ers... though it is indeed a bit less finished looking!

Cheers and good luck with the product... I was quite amazed at how quickly a family of starlings colonized my boom (and made a royal mess of the cockpit). Nothing like having a marina neighbor call and say "you better get down here right away" to get the heart pounding; I was relieved when it was only birds!

Steve

I just use a cube shaped piece of latex foam shoved into the boom end.

It doesn't interfere with any lines, lasts about 2 years and costs virtually nothing.

Thank you for your comments, we do not disagree with you as far as your ideas. What we would like to do is give you a permanent fix to your bird nesting problems without having to worry about rusting, leaving glue residue on your boom end or sponges dry rotting and crumbling, With a Bird Nest Buster installed, give your boom end a good look for years to come.


Kind Regards,

Doug Green

You know those little "stress balls" - the rubber type you can squeeze to build hand grip or to relieve stress - gimmies at trade shows ... or pick them up at the dollar store. pop right in, no rust, no crumble, no glue, air flow is good, weight is low .. hard to pass up for a buck.

You are right you could use those things but what we are offering is a fix that will last for years to come without having to worry about it... and also giving your boom end a good look....
