Whirly birds? What’s that? If you have maple tree in or near your yard, you have probably noticed that the whirly birds, or helicopters, are coming out on your trees. Their thin tails allow them to spin and spiral downward – and carry them a few yards away!
Your yard, sidewalks, deck and patios will soon be blanketed with the seeds. As you are cleaning them, consider this – there is a good chance they didn’t all make it to the ground, and many are going to be stuck in your gutters!
When these pesky seeds collect in your gutters, they will form a clog and prevent rain from properly flowing through the gutters. Clogged gutters will lead to rain spilling over the sides of the gutters, damaging the siding and window frames on your home.
If they aren’t cleared from the gutters, the whirly birds will become wet and heavy. The extra weight can cause the gutters to pull away from the house, making them less effective and potentially damaging your home.
And as crazy as it sounds, wet whirly birds can actually sprout a tree in your gutter. As you walk or drive through your neighborhood after it rains, look for small trees growing out of gutters. This is a problem you definitely do not want! You can do two things to prevent this from occurring.
