Your Guide to Installing Bird Spikes on Your Property

When you need a solution to controlling local bird populations and the negative impact they are having on your property, then you need bird control spikes. These simple, low-profile spikes are a great way to prevent birds from destroying your landscape and structures, as well as prevent the leaving of disgusting droppings all over the place. Here’s more information on the many benefits of bird spike installation for your property:

Why Bird Spikes?

While they may not sound familiar to those who have never encountered them, bird spikes are actually one of the most humane solutions for bird removal and exclusion. They are virtually invisible from the ground and keeps your property safe, clean, and more comfortable.

Bird spikes are an excellent choice for many applications and areas, including:

  • Roofs
  • Eaves
  • Light and lamp fixtures
  • Construction beams
  • Parapets
  • Ledges
  • Windowsills and more

If you are installing bid spikes in windows, be sure that your window can still open properly. Even if it’s a window you don’t often use, you need to access it for fire safety reasons. For windows that open outward, have your spikes installed to move along with the shutters.

Prior to Spikes Installation

Before pigeon spikes installation, it’s a good idea to clean the surfaces where your rows of spikes will be applied or installed. A clean, smooth surface makes for better adherence and a more secure fit, to prevent the spikes from being knocked loose by wind, weather, or rouge pigeons!

Choosing an Installation Method

How you affix your spikes to the surface where they are secured will depend largely on the materials you are applying them to. In general, wooden surfaces are best for using screws or nails to apply spikes. You may want to consider reinforcing the base of plastic spikes if you apply them to a wooden surface, just to ensure lasting strength.

Concrete or stone surfaces will need a construction-grade adhesive for affixing bird spikes. In these cases, it may be best to use metal pigeon control spikes. They are more likely to last and will be more worth the investment of the additional material it takes to secure them to your surfaces.

When you are ready for more information about these methods and pigeon spikes installation in Blackpool, contact the experts here at National Bird Control. We’ll help you throughout the entire process in Blackpool, from selecting the right spikes to having them installed and maintaining them for years to come.
