Beautiful to Look at, Just Not in Your Warehouse

At Bird B Gone, we know that birds are a common part of life no matter where you live. Watching birds out your living room window on a spring day is a great way to relax and enjoy the beauty Mother Nature has to offer. Watching nestlings prepare for their first flight, geese fly south for the winter, or birds of prey soar majestically overhead can be one of life's great pleasures. While birds are beautiful to watch soar through the air, they can pose serious problems if they enter your warehouse.

Fast and Easy Solutions to a Common Problem

Birds need a place to bed down. When they decide to build their homes in your warehouse, you are going to face more problems than you might realize. Birds can cause thousands of dollars structural damage in a matter of weeks. Their droppings carry diseases and viruses that can be harmful or fatal. Their nests and feathers cause serious fire hazards and can clog machinery. And birds flying around your warehouse can be distracting to employees.

Luckily, getting rid of the problem is easier than you might realize. Here at Bird B Gone, we offer a wide variety of bird prevention and removal products that will meet your company's specific needs. All of our products are designed to keep your warehouse safe and your business on track. Each product has a specific use and will perform a certain job. And when it comes to outdoor bird deterrents, bird spikes should be your deterrent of choice.

What Are Bird Spikes?

Bird spikes are products designed to prevent and eliminate bird problems. They are almost exactly what their name implies, and that is a strip of spikes that you place on or around flat or curved surfaces of your business. The spikes themselves are made out of a light, UV protected unbreakable plastic or commercial-grade stainless steel.  Though they come in a variety of sizes and shapes, most bird spikes come in long strips that can be fastened to your business's eaves, gutters, siding, roofing, or any other outdoor location where birds are causing problems.

How Do They Work?

Birds don't magically appear in your business. Rather, an infestation begins slowly, with birds looking for a safe and cozy place to build their nests. Birds are opportunists when searching for a home and will look for gaps, cracks, holes, ledges, and other areas that are out of Mother Nature's reach. More often than not, large buildings and warehouses provide a plethora of places for birds to build their homes.

Bird strips make it impossible for birds to land on or around your business. The long spikes will prevent the bird from landing and will force them to look elsewhere for a place to perch. Because most birds need at least a little space to land and fly, the strips will block their movements and prevent them from being able to get near your building in the first place.  When the birds are unable to land anywhere near your building they will move along and look for better places to make their homes, preventing a problem before it even starts.

Why Bird Spikes?

When it comes to eliminating or preventing a bird infestation, there are plenty of products that claim to do a great job. While there is no doubt you can find plenty of ways to get rid of a bird problem, no other product shares the same list of benefits that you will find with bird spikes. Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider using bird spikes:

  • Humane: Bird B Gone Bird spikes are one of the most humane methods of deterring birds from landing and roosting. Our spikes will not injure the birds, even if a bird happens to fly into them. The spikes are made out of UV protected polycarbonate or durable stainless steel that has been designed to prevent any and all injuries in birds of all sizes.
  • Cost-effective: Bird spikes are inexpensive to purchase and require no long-term investment. Once the spikes are in place, they do not require maintenance.
  • Environmentally friendly: The bird spike composition resists changes in temperatures, will not rust or corrode (even when exposed to rain and snow), and won't deteriorate and damage the environment.
  • Long-term solution: As mentioned before, bird spikes do not require any maintenance or adjustments once they have been installed. Because they are made of commercial-grade materials, they will prevent bird infestations for years to come without requiring any extra labor or adjustments.
