If you own or manage a commercial building, you know that pest birds can be a problem. Pigeons and other bird pests? often gather to perch and roost on ledges, signage and parapet walls. The result is an unsightly mess in bird droppings, debris and nesting materials that your maintenance crew must clean up--padding to your overall cost. If you ignore the problem, birds will return in greater numbers, attracted by the scent of bird droppings and nesting materials. The solution? Bird deterrent spikes.

Being proactive is the key. For bird droppings can quickly eat into virtually any material, creating long-term damage to walls, signage, windows and doors. Installing bird deterrent spikes on rooflines, ledges and signage does more than just scare birds away. It effectively and humanely prevents pest birds from landing. High quality bird deterrent spikes like those offered by the bird control experts at Bird-B-Gone won't harm birds or installation crews. Here's what they recommend for commercial buildings:
