Bird Spikes - the humane solution for perching and nesting birds



Bird Spikes are a physical bird deterrent device used to prevent birds from perching or nesting on surfaces such as ledges, gutters, beams, warehouses, signs and other architectural features. They are typically made of durable materials such as stainless steel or plastic and consist of rows of pointed spikes or wires that make it uncomfortable or impossible for birds to land or nest.

These spikes are designed to deter birds without causing them harm. They work by creating an uneven or uncomfortable surface that birds cannot easily land on, thus encouraging them to find another location for perching or nesting. Bird spikes are commonly used in urban areas to protect buildings, monuments, and structures from bird droppings and damage caused by nesting activities.

Bird Spikes are often considered a humane and effective bird control solution, as they do not harm the birds but simply discourage them from landing on the protected surfaces – and encourage them to land and nest in their natural environments.

  1. Bird Droppings, known as bird guano, can cause various types of damage depending on the surface they land on and the frequency of their presence. Some of the common types of damage bird droppings can cause include:-
  2. Structural Damage - Bird droppings contain uric acid, which can corrode and deteriorate building materials such as wood, metal, stone, and concrete over time. This can lead to structural damage to buildings, bridges, statues, and other structures.
  3. Health Hazards - Bird droppings can harbor harmful bacteria, fungi, and parasites, including E. coli, Salmonella, and Histoplasma. When dried droppings are disturbed, these microorganisms can become airborne and pose health risks to humans, especially those with weakened immune systems.
  4. Aesthetic Damage - Bird droppings can deface and stain surfaces, making them unsightly and difficult to clean.
  5. Damage to Vegetation - Bird droppings can damage vegetation by causing leaf burn, reducing plant growth, and spreading diseases.

Nesting birds in gutters can cause several problems, including:-

Clogged Gutters - Birds may build nests using twigs, leaves, and other debris, leading to clogged gutters. This can obstruct the flow of rainwater and cause water to overflow, potentially damaging the roof, siding, and foundation of the building.

Water Damage - Clogged gutters can result in water backing up onto the roof, leading to water damage, leaks, and rotting of roofing materials. This can compromise the structural integrity of the roof and the building as a whole.

Pest Infestations - Nesting birds can attract other pests, such as insects and rodents, which may further exacerbate the problem and lead to additional damage to the property.

Fire Hazard - Dry nesting materials in gutters can pose a fire hazard, especially during hot and dry weather conditions. If ignited, the fire can spread to the roof and other parts of the building.

Health Risks - Bird droppings and nesting materials can harbor harmful bacteria, fungi, and parasites, posing health risks to occupants of the building, especially if the droppings are disturbed and become airborne.
