Troubleshooting A FliteLine® Installation
FliteLine Troubleshooting Guide.
To get the best from the best, you need to install it properly. The effectiveness of a FliteLine deterrent system depends on how proficiently it has been installed. If the FliteLine system does not provide the desired results, the problem can usually be traced down to one or more installation errors or using the FliteLine for the wrong application.
Double Check Checklist (DO THIS FIRST).
You will need the
FliteLine Post & Wire Bird Deterrent brochure to complete this checklist.
The checklist below refers to several items you will find only in the
FliteLine brochure. If you need Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can download
a free version by clicking on the link at the bottom of the navigation
- Did you use the FliteLine for the proper application?
Remember: FliteLine should be used
only as a deterrent for large birds (pigeons, crows, seagulls) on surfaces where the
problem birds are few in number. If small birds are present and/or there are a lot of birds, use a different system such as the
Nixalite strips or the
- Check your surface dimensions.
Make sure they are accurate. NEVER estimate surface dimensions from a distance. On-site, in-field measurements are the only way to ensure accuracy.
- Have you installed enough FliteLine?
FliteTable information printed in the FliteLine
brochure to be sure. Do not install just one row where multiple rows are required. Do not stretch the row spacing – this is false economy. What you try to save now could cost you many, many times that much later.
- Row and post spacing.
Are the FliteLine rows and posts spaced correctly on the surface? Review the spacing guidelines for these items.
- Did you cover all the areas?
Have you protected all of the problem areas? All birds will create problems if they are allowed to land above, next to or behind the installed FliteLine.
- Did you clean the surface first?
Did you clean the surface before installing the FliteLine? Birds are drawn to old roosts by the scent of past inhabitation. Thorough cleaning can eliminate this.
- Installation Steps.
Did you stagger the FliteLine row heights? Did you install both upper and lower wires at all outside edges? Did you stagger the spring connections? Review all of the Installing FliteLine steps one at a time.
If you have completed this checklist and have not found any obvious problems,
