When looking for bird extermination options, many customers ask, “Are bird spikes effective for bird control?” The answer is certainly yes. Bird spikes are effective bird control tools for many bird species and in a variety of areas. The base of bird spikes are flexible and can take on any shape to prevent pests from sitting on edges, railings and buildings. Many commercial establishments use bird spikes to deter pest birds and eliminate related issues before invasion occurs.
How Do Bird Spikes Work?
Bird spikes are designed to prevent birds from resting anywhere they want. Bird spikes aren’t designed to hurt birds. They have a narrow, flexible base with distending stainless steel spikes. These spikes aren’t sharp and thus won’t cause injury to birds and the people installing them. Instead, the spikes are spaced close together to prevent large birds from landing.
To provide options for ledges, signs and pipes, bird spikes are available in various sizes — narrow (2.5 in), wide (5 in), and extra wide (8 in). Installation is easy. The spikes are short and easy to cut, and the installer can easily glue or screw them to the desired surface. Nearby nails may look intimidating, but 4.5-inch nails are barely noticeable when placed on your building.
