Bird Diverters & Hazing
Bird diverters from P&R Tech help utilities save birds, prevent damage, and avoid fines.
- Millions of birds and bats are killed each year in collisions with power lines, guy wires, and other thin profile obstructions.
- Utilities can be subject to large federal fines when protected species are killed.
- Bird strikes also cause power outages.
- Bird nests and droppings cause millions of dollars in damage each year to transformers and other electrical equipment.
Independent studies show FireFly and BirdMark to be the most effective bird diverters. They have been tested by EPRI and recommended by U.S. Fish and Wildlife. They also have a lower installed cost than coils.

Most effective diverter in independent studies. Tested by EPRI. Recommended by U.S. Fish and Wildlife. Spins and reflects. Glows at dawn and dusk. Install by hand, hot stick, or drone. Lower installed cost vs. coils.
Same as FireFly FF but designed for locations with very high sustained winds. No moving parts. Sways with power line (does not spin).
Lowest cost bird diverter solution for many applications. Tested by EPRI. Recommended by U.S. Fish and Wildlife. Flutters in wind. Glows at dusk. Highly visible reflective center. Installs by hand, hot stick, or drone.
The only bird diverter designed for installation on live lines up to 500 kV. Aluminum, 12” dia., bright yellow to stand out in birds’ vision. Glows up to 10 hours after dark. Satisfies US Fish and Wildlife guidelines.
A specialized version of the FireFly bird diverter that attaches to the guy wires of met towers & similar obstructions. Effective at protecting birds and bats in flight from collisions with unseen obstructions.
Haze or discourage birds from perching and roosting within a 30 foot radius in towers, substations, and other structures. FireFly FF bird diverter attached to durable insulated stand that clamps to crossarms, lattices, etc.
The FireFly WM is essentially the same as the FireFly FF, but it comes with a metal “L” bracket for mounting on wood structures. This configuration is primarily used to haze birds away from such structures.
Woodpeckers are very territorial, so they steer clear of wood utility poles when they see our painted metal woodpeckers on the scene! Choose from our new Northern Flicker Silhouette or the larger, original Pileated Woodpecker Silhouette.
A burst of splayed wires discourages birds from perching or building nests. Protects area above insulator strings and fills nesting holes in towers.
Mounts directly to wooden or metal cross arms in structures where birds roost. Durable spinner with reflective and glow-in-the-dark materials “nags” birds into roosting somewhere else.
Quickly and safely install or remove bird diverters and low line markers that use SnapFast clamps. Installation tool attaches to a hot stick. Allows installation from ground or bucket.
