While homeowners have been searching for a cost effective way to eliminate the clogs that pine needles can cause in their gutter systems, it was also imperative that they find a quality product that would stand up to almost anything Mother Nature could throw at it.The Needle Beetle does just that. It was tested and certified to handle 17” of rainfall per hour. That’s 34 feet of rain in one day! It withstood 110 mph winds with no lift of movement from the gutter system. That’s the equivalent of a category 2 hurricane! And because it’s manufactured from heavy duty aluminum, you can be sure it will stand up to a heavy buildup of snow and ice. And all this proven performance comes with a 10 year limited warranty.
