It mimics the sound of a fire. Birds get that crackling sound and the red of the fire. The silver side i believe to be the flickering of the flames.

I bought mine and hung strips 2 feet long on the 4 sides of my boat house. No more birds building nest. I think the birds don't like the flash of the tape.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bird B Gone Flash Tape We had issue with the birds eating our blueberries. They were enjoying the blueberries more than we were. So I need to find some that would keep the birds away from the blueberries. We had it for about 3 weeks now and the birds has keep the birds away from the berries and there are still birds that do fly around the area but they are keeping away from the berries. Is seem to work. Overall I have been please with the results. The tape has two color on one side it is a very shinny silver and a bright shinny red on the other side. The tape is 1" wide and 50 feet long. May 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deterrent flash tape It work as described. Stopped Cardinal from pecking at window. Had to order since it was not carried in my area (Wisconsin). April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Flash tape This is a functional product. I use it hung on my casement windows to prevent wild bird strikes, as I feed 16 species of wild birds here in central Va. One wish would be that the RED color be removed, as it washes off anyway and stains siding, window frames, etc. Not necessary at all. Over time the tape breaks, which I mend with scotch tape, and get at least a year out of the strands. Too bad it is not easier to find in Charlottesville, as I will not drive 40 miles RT to pick up a roll or two...free shipping please Home Depot! March 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simple, but seems to work Nothing fancy about this ribbon. It's almost as simple as something you'd wrap packages with. But it seems durable and hasn't torn, even through staples and wind. Works so far! March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased!!! I bought this item, specifically, to make a Christmas gift for my Mom. She was adamant, that she "wanted or needed nothing, in the way of a gift." She does, however, have an issue with Woodpeckers, drilling holes in the exterior of her home. Using this "flash tape," fishing line, and swivels, I made several streamers, that she can strategically place on her home, to startle any offending Woodpecker, to move on to another location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bird tape I bought it as I have a small pup less than 10 pounds and I have seen Hawks circling the neighborhood attached to poles trees lines to ke them out, it has worked even the regular birds don't cont in the back yard, I am going to order some more January 19, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Birds are sorta gone... For the minimal investment its actually alright. I used a roll around my deck. After a fairly heavy rain I had to retie a few strands and I noticed quite a bit of color had come off of a few of them. When its very sunny the reflection does seem to annoy the birds and a slight breeze makes them rustle just enough to also annoy birds. My only complaint is if its overcast they serve no use at all. I'm considering a sound deterrent instead. June 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flash Tape This was the only thing that worked to keep the woodpeckers away from my cedar shakes. It is not the most attractive thing in the world, but it sure is better than destructive holes in the house. December 15, 2015
