Are Bird Spikes Safe? Common Concerns About Effective Methods

Nuisance birds like pigeons, sparrows, starlings, and seagulls can be destructive and leave behind dangerous and disgusting droppings. Controlling ever-growing bird populations in urban areas is difficult, especially when you are attempting to do so manually.

Many cities once resorted to barbaric methods like culling, which is essentially a controlled killing of a fraction of the local bird population. However, modern sensibilities have made these methods seem ineffective, undesirable and unethical.

Here’s what you need to know about a humane alternative that can prevent the problem by preventing the presence of birds entirely:

Bird Spikes

If you have checked the market for a bird control solution, you’ve probably at least heard of bird control spikes. The bird spikes are a common and highly effective method of controlling the damage that birds can do by perching and roosting on your property.

These metal pigeon spikes are indeed not typically sharp. Therefore, they are not dangerous to the birds and they help protect your property. Instead, these dull, rounded spikes act as a deterrent; birds attempt to land on your home or business surfaces and encounter the spikes, making landing impossible. In just a few days, local bi populations will learn your property has no available surfaces for a comfortable landing and begin looking elsewhere.

Common Bird Control Methods

Some of the most common and effective methods of bird control and deterrence adopted by National Bird Control include:

  • Bird spikes for pigeons and other nuisance birds: These spikes are installed directly onto the required surfaces to prevent birds from landing and roosting there – all without causing harm to the birds.
  • Bird control posts and wires: These are also installed directly on areas where birds are discouraged to enter. The wires are suspended between the posts, making it difficult or impossible for birds to comfortably land. Again, the birds are not harmed, but the method is extremely effective.
  • Bird control netting: This is a popular choice because it can cover large, open spaces when properly installed. It is a great method for controlling the presence of birds in farmland or in gardens.

Putting Bird Spikes to Work for You

Most properties with flat surfaces are compatible with the modern design of pest control pigeon spikes. These spikes are installed in rows and arranged in such a way that they leave nowhere for birds to comfortably land and perch. This may involve several rows wrapping around a surface or pointed towards one another and overlapping to prevent a secure footing for birds. The frustration that results from this inability to land will prevent birds from continually trying to do so.

At National Bird Control, our professional team renders the right services depending on each site. We can help you select the right type of bird control spikes or bird control method for your property and other needs in Bradford. All of which are designed in different ways to work for preventing the presence of different kinds of birds.
