Pigeon deterrent spikes are ideal at keeping pigeons off buildings

Posted on July 21, 2016 by Alex Kecskes in Pigeon Control

Regrettably, pigeons and buildings are almost synonymous. And many a building/owner/manager has had to deal with the costly and destructive nature of these “rats with wings.” Pigeon droppings are not only unsightly but destructive, eating into wood, plastic, vinyl and stone surfaces. Removing these droppings can be difficult and expensive.

Pigeons Cause Extensive Damage

Pigeon nests, droppings and feathers often block gutters and rainwater pipes, causing water damage. The nuisance birds will lift loose roof coverings, tiles and battens to gain entry into roof voids. Rainwater is then free to enter, creating wood-rotting fungi, which then attracts insects, resulting in further damage. Pigeon nesting materials, feathers and droppings often block parapet gutters and hopper heads, allowing water to enter a building. This can lead to the growth of decay organisms, resulting in even more damage.

The Solution: Pigeon Deterrent Spikes

Using pellet guns, water hoses or loud noises has proven ineffective in getting rid of pigeons. The birds always return once the threat is gone. This is why more building owners/managers choose professional-level pigeon deterrent spikes. Here’s what the bird control pros at Bird B Gone recommend:

Stainless Steel Bird Spikes. Ideal for getting rid of pigeons from rooftops, parapet walls, light fixtures and other flat or curved surfaces, Bird B Gone stainless steel pigeon deterrent spikes continue to be used by building owners worldwide. The spikes come in 1-, 3-, 5- and 8-inch splay widths to provide increasingly wider areas of protection—up to 10 inches wide. These rugged spiked strips feature a patented “bend-and-crush” design, which means the spikes are firmly embedded in an unbreakable UV-protected polycarbonate base. This flexible base bends a full 360 degrees, so it can easily “follow” a variety of curved mounting surfaces.

• Plastic (Poly) Bird Spikes. These rugged pigeon deterrent spikes are GSA approved and made of unbreakable UV-protected polycarbonate plastic to last for years outdoors. Offering economy and flexibility, the spiked strips come in two-foot sections and three different widths—3-, 5- and 7-inch—to match the surface being treated. The spikes are available in seven standard colors—brick red, white, crystal clear, light grey, brown, black and tan—to make them virtually invisible and more aesthetically pleasing. They are also non-conductive and will not interfere with electrical or communication and transmission equipment. Each is manufactured in the USA and comes with a 5-year guarantee.

Gutter Spikes. Ideal for preventing pigeons from roosting and nesting in rain gutters, Bird-B-Gone stainless steel gutter spikes come in two-foot long sections, each four inches wide, and in six-foot and 50-foot lengths. These spikes feature stainless steel pins, embedded into a UV-protected polycarbonate base. They are made in the USA and guaranteed for 10 years

Easy to Install

Bird B Gone pigeon deterrent spikes feature a slim base (just 1.5 inches wide), which allows for easy installation on narrow surfaces. A built-in glue tough and pre-drilled mounting holes allow for easy installation using commercially available glues, screws or tie downs. A flexible base allows the spiked strip to easily “follow” curved surfaces, such as lampposts and signage. Gutter Spikes feature clamps along the base, which hook right up to the lip of the gutter. The clamps are thumbscrew adjustable and will adapt to both wide and narrow gutters. Once installed, the spikes are virtually invisible.

Humane Pigeon Deterrent

Blunted at the tips so they won’t harm pigeons, curious pets or installers, Bird B Gone pigeon deterrent spikes have been approved by a number of humane groups—including the U.S. Humane Society.
