Bird spikes are a humane and effective method of preventing birds from roosting on your property. Contrary to popular belief, the spikes do not harm the birds; the feet of larger birds such as pigeons or seagulls are not adapted to landing on thin, spiky branches, so they are simply unable to perch there. It is worth noting, however, that smaller birds such as sparrows will not be deterred by spikes and another prevention method such as bird netting may be required.
Most often used in town and city centres for pigeon control, bird spikes are ideally placed on flat surfaces where birds may want to land, such as signs, roofs, chimneys, gutters, pipes and statues. They can be fixed to almost any material, including glass, metal, masonry, plastic and even canvas.
Bird Spike Installation
Anti-roosting spikes are a cost-effective and versatile and durable bird exclusion device. Made from stainless steel, they are extremely quick to install and will keep birds from roosting on your building for many years with little maintenance. The spikes are also completely reversible, so if you decide that you no longer want to use them, they can be removed with no damage to your property.
